Here’s a challenge to Ally Fogg from no other than Ayaan Hirsi Ali, one of the most courageous women today, who says – Islam “is not a peaceful one” and calls for “a Muslim Reformation.”
Those who she states are her harshest critics — Muslims and Western liberals – like Ally Fogg, deny what she’s been professing all along: that Islamic faith and modernity are incompatible, and that the recent surge in extremist attacks in the name of Islam is an even greater indication that something more monumental must be done.
Ayaan Hirsi Ali writes, and she writes it about you Ally Fogg:
My uncompromising statements on this topic have incited such vehement denunciations that one would think I had committed an act of violence myself. For today, it seems, speaking the truth about Islam is a crime. “Hate speech” is the modern term for heresy. And in the present atmosphere, anything that makes Muslims feel uncomfortable is branded as “hate.”
So will we hear Ally Fogg calling Ayaan Hirsi Ali a vile racists?
Free speech not only means the right to say unpalatable and unpopular things, it also involves the right to call oppression and bigotry for what they are when we see them.
And if you call someone a vile racist for criticising Islam as being institutionally sexist and prevent her or him from making that criticism, then who is the bigot?
