Christopher Hitchens om Hirsi Alis flugt fra Holland

Christopher Hitchens skriver om Hollands behandling af Hirsi Ali i en artikel fra 8/5-06. Som andre muslimske kontrarevolutionære startede hun på venstrefløjen, som socialdemokrat, men fandt ud af, at hun i virkeligheden selvfølgelig var liberal. "This, she explained, was because many Labor spokesmen preferred to think of immigrants as possessing "group rights". They had become so infatuated by their own "multi-culti" style that they had ignored the rights of individuals—especially women and girls—who were imprisoned within their own ghetto".

Hitchens fortæller, hvordan Hirsi Ali arbejdede som oversætter og socialarbejder og kom tæt på historier om overgreb og æresdrab; "she has case histories that will freeze your blood. These, however, are in some ways less depressing than the excuses made by qualified liberals for their continuation. At all costs, it seems, others must be allowed "their culture" and—what is more—must be allowed the freedom to be offended by the smallest criticism of it. If they do feel offended, their very first resort is to violence and intimidation, sometimes with the support of the embassies of foreign states. (How interesting it is that the two European states most recently attacked in this way—Holland and Denmark—should be the ones that have made the greatest effort to be welcoming to immigrants.)".

Glem ikke at læse Martin Krasniks superinterview med Hitchens "Antiteist!" i Weekendavisen 10/3-06:
Kold som en fisk. »Min drivkraft er mit had til religiøse mennesker. Jeg vil bruge mit liv på at slå dem ned. Jeg håber at dø efter at have forvoldt dem stor skade.« En aften med verdens mest opmærksomhedsskabende kommentator og Danmarks bedste ven.
Endelig Hitchens egen artikel "Kæmp for Danmark" i Weekendavisen 24/2-06.
