Ayaaan Hirsi Ali and the Real War on Women

Brave soul this woman, incredibly brave soul. 

"Wherever [Islamists] gain power, you see exactly what they do: The first thing they do is they chase women out of the public space, force them to cover up, beat them up, rape them, sell them into slavery,” Hirsi Ali said."

"Such violence against women needs to be exposed, and Western liberals need to “review their thinking,” she said."

"That will prove difficult."

"In her speech to the dinner guests in Washington, Hirsi Ali recalled meeting Vice President Joe Biden. He informed her that “ISIS had nothing to do with Islam.”

"When she disagreed with him, Biden actually responded: “Let me tell you one or two things about Islam.”

I politely left the conversation at that,” Hirsi Ali said, to laughter.

I wasn’t used to arguing with vice presidents.”
