Ayan Hirsi Ali: Boko Haram and the Kidnapped School Girls

A good read from a very brave lady. 

Killer lede:

"Since the kidnapping of 276 schoolgirls in Nigeria last month, the meaning of Boko Haram—the name used by the terrorist group that seized the girls—has become more widely known. The translation from the Hausa language is usually given in English-language media as "Western Education Is Forbidden," though "Non-Muslim Teaching Is Forbidden" might be more accurate."
