Q and A with religious activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali

In the Mainichi Daily News

Somali-born former Muslim and former Dutch MP, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, is knows as a severe critic of Islam. Soon after the terrorist attack in New York on September 11, 2001, her long-term dubious perception of Islam turned into a severe criticism against Islam.

Her rejection and open criticism of Islam made her one of the most controversial political figure in Europe. She has become a serious target for terrorists since the murder of a Dutch film director Theo van Gogh, with whom Hirsi Ali made a film critical of the treatment of women in Muslim societies.

Now in the United States working for American Enterprise Institute, a conservative think tank, Hirsi Ali wrote her memoir, Infidel, which is scheduled to be published in Japan in the spring or summer 2008. In an exclusive interview with The Mainichi Newspapers, Hirsi Ali talked about her life and her opinions on Islam.
