Ayaan Persecution Update.
Bruce Bawer just emailed me with the news.
So much the worse for Holland and Europe, so much the better for the U.S.
From the Liberty and Justice blogspot:
Ayaan Hirsi Ali Heading To The US
NOS Journaal reports:
In The Hague is expected that Ayaan Hirsi Ali will leave. De Volkskrant (re: Dutch newspaper) reports she will start working at the American Enterprise Institute, a conservative thinktank in Washington. Agreements about her personal security would already been made.
She was expected to go to the US in May 2007, but because she must leave her house, that has been advanced. Hirsi Ali wants to finish her book “een korte weg naar de verlichting” (re: a short road / path to the enlightenment).
According to De Volkskrant she will she will leave to the US September 1, 2006.
Exactly what I was afraid of. She will be welcomed into the US and she will get the respect she deserves there, but it is a crying shame that we force people like her to leave our country.
Do we, finally, have someone who defends our freedom of speech, even putting her life on the line, we force her to leave our country and move to the US. It is making me all sick.
Will update throughout the day.
Welcome, Ayaan. I look forward to standing with you in the last redoubt.
