    Then why is she joinging the AEI?

    Bullshit, I say.  That's one of the most conservative, neocon institutes there is.

      Fox News had on the other day, but then I wasn't paying a whole lot of attentionas she just sounded like another right-wing Muslim putting down Muslims.

    •  one of the oldest reactionary arguments (2+ / 0-)

      against feminism or any form of personal liberation is to point out some oriental boogieman, and say "see how bad you'd have it if you lived among the barbaric ___? shut up and thank god you're a ___."

      the country of the Other changes with the years, but the mode of argument stays curiously stable.

    •  She switched parties (0+ / 0-)

      Ali switched parties from Pvda to the VVD. And she certainly had been applauded as a feminist.

      You live here don't you Plutonium Page?

      But my opinion she is a complete and utter opportunist with no moral compass.

      Getting in to bed with the American Enterprise Institute with its savage, warmongering Right Wing pundits such as David Frum, Newt Gingrich, Michael Ledeen, Irving Kristol and John Yoo is disgusting. These people ARE the architects of the Iraq War - they augmented and pushed the lies that have resulted in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Iraqi citizens (now dying at the rate of 1000 a week).

      All for the benefit of American Energy, military industrialists and Israel's security - not for the freeing of Iraqi people, nor for the fight against terrorism.

      She's a parasite.

      And van Gogh, the anarchist provocateur died in vain. She never 'suffered' under Islam. She simply used him as the next pulsating vein in her leap from obscurity to infamy.

      She will fit in well with the liars at AEI who don't seem to mind she was not a 'victim' and has been caught in her own web of deceit - but rather a good poster girl for them to achieve their other objective which is to demonize Muslims.

      She has drained the blood from all muslim women in the Netherlands to further her own rise.
