This streaming video shows an interview with ex-muslim, secular humanist and feminist,
Ayaan Hirsi Ali Wafa Sultan, discussing her beliefs about the clash between Islam and “the West”: essentially she argues this is a clash between the Middle Ages and all it represents and the 21st Century, and all it represents. I would like to expand her ideas to include all religious fundamentalism, such as what is happening in America today with our own homegrown religious wingnuts.
Okay, thanks to a reader, I now know that I mixed up Wafa Sultan with Ayaan Hirsi Ali, who is the author of a book, The Caged Virgin: An Emancipation Proclamation for Women and Islam. Nonetheless, this book is highly recommended to me by a journalist-friend of mine and appears to agree with the position that is presented in tooe video clip by Wafa Sultan.
