Critic of Islam finds new home in US

Yet another article about the appalling Ayaan Hirsi Ali, though this one is a bit more balanced than the eulogies that have appeared in the British press (even if it does fudge this issue of why Hirsi Ali left the Netherlands).

Ibrahim Hooper of CAIR is quoted as saying: “We believe that she will bring an increase to the level of anti-Muslim bias in this country that we saw her bring to the situation in Europe. Unfortunately her message is one of bigotry, not one of mutual understanding.”

Hooper is reported as accusing Hirsi Ali of exaggerating her attacks on Islam in order to further her own agenda. “She is just one more Muslim-basher on the lecture circuit.”
