ayaan hirsi ali

Ayaan Hirsi Ali was born in Somalia, lived in Kenya, moved to Europe and settled in The Netherlands. She managed to become a member of the Dutch Parliament. She collaborated with the cineast Theo van Gogh (descendant of Vincent’s brother Theo) who was killed in broad daylight in Amsterdam by a muslim, who disagreed with his ideas and actions. 

She has been very critical of islam and she warns western powers about its influence. She has been threatened in The Netherlands and she now lives in North America. 

She has written several books and now she talks about her own reading habits.
