The New Weapons of Mass Destruction

Ayaan Hirshi Ali is one of the new ‘weapons of mass destruction’. She started a career out of lying. Ayaan obtained her Dutch citizenship and made documentaries based on false and fabricated materials. Now she is exposed, lost her position in the Dutch Parliament and her citizenship supposed to be revoked too.


However, she found a warm place in the warmongering Bush lead US administration and the neo-cons are giving her plenty of support and publicity. The Sydney Writers' Festivals response is fair and proper in their dealings with her.


I hope prejudice and bigotry will be defeated by truth and reality and none of us should fell for any of them.


Thanks in advance.

Dear Sir

Thank you for your feedback which we appreciate. We are conscious that some of Ayaan Hirsi Ali's views are controversial and that the right wing media regularly cite her views to promote their agenda. We have discussed this in depth with her publisher, who is handling the media engagements for Hirsi Ali in Australia and have asked them to ensure that they factor this into account when arranging her schedule.


Kind regards,

THE POLITICS OF MUSLIM AND ARAB BASHING

SYDNEY WRITERS FESTIVAL “PIN-UP GIRL” SHOULD BE READ IN CONTEXT




Ayaan Hirshi Ali, an international guest of the Sydney Writers Festival in 2007 is feted as a persecuted victim of Islam by some Western feminists, intellectuals and the media of Australia. As a progressive Muslim in Australia, I urge attendees at the SWF to take a closer look. It is my belief that Ali has become a pawn of the Right Wing establishment, which promotes racism, pro-American military aggression and pro-Israeli Zionism.

The Labor Party of Holland challenged Ali for making a political career based on lies, prejudice and bigotry – the very things she claimed to be fighting. After September 11, 2001 Dutch politics moved to the right. Sixty percent of the Dutch electorate voted for the far right politician Pim Fortyn in the wake of 9/11. Fortyn was assassinated by an animal rights activist and NOT by a supporter of Islam. Yet, the media focused on Islamic fundamentalism in their coverage of the crime. Dutch government Minister Rita Verdonk took up the anti-Muslim crusade and deported many asylum seekers in Holland back to their country of origin and handed over the reports compiled on why they sought asylum. This exposed asylum seekers to further dangers. A number of them have since been killed. Verdonk denied handing over these reports until she was exposed by some journalists. Verdonk now wants to return Iranian homosexuals to Iran from Holland with full knowledge they may be killed. Ayaan Hirshi Ali is politically aligned with these reactionary forces.


Many Dutch people are happy that Ayaan was kicked out from the Dutch Parliament and since she has left for the United States they do not want her back in their country. They also want to revoke her citizenship. However since arriving in the USA Ayaan has been adopted by the pro-Israeli lobby and the neo-Cons as a valuable weapon in their anti-Muslim crusade. Just like former anti-Vietnam War activists and writers who deserted the progressive Left are now widely promoted in the establishment media to defend the Bush line on Iraq, former Muslims like Ayaan Hirshi Ali, Ershad Manji and others are now promoted to discredit Islam generally, but worse to promote and stir the fans of Western prejudice and ignorance.


Below are a few quotes regarding Ali.


In answer to an email I sent exposing her real agenda, a reply from the Sydney Writers Festival organizing committee noted, “… Ayaan Hirsi Ali’s views are controversial and that the right wing media regularly cite her views to promote their agenda. We have discussed this in depth with her publisher …”


The University of Technology Sydney (UTS) Islamic law lecturer Jamila Hussain said Hirsi Ali's ideas were extreme and stigmatised Muslims. "I think she'd be better staying where she came from," Ms Hussain said. "I've read enough of her thoughts. It's a narrow and radical opinion, and I don't agree with it. She's obviously had some dreadful experiences, but they're not typical."


Nada Roude, a young female spokesperson from the NSW Islamic Council, said Hirsi Ali's comments on the prophet Mohammed were a "no-go zone". By this she meant her criticisms (on the subject of paediphilia) were without foundation, according to non-Arab, non-Muslim scholars of religious history. (The Australian May 29, 2007)


Islamic education consultant Silma Ihram said the writer's perception of the religion was inaccurate. “(She) has an axe to grind due to her background suffering from unfortunate Somali tribal practices,” Ms Ihram said.

“Combine that with a desire for wealth as a Somali European migrant and it's natural for her to achieve both by publicly slandering Islam and obtaining immediate media attention.” Comment of the Islamic friendship Association spokesman Keysar Trad (Daily Telegraph May 29, 2007)

Ayaan’s anti-Muslim diatribe should be read in the context of the Iraq War, Howard’s “War on Terror”, the Cronulla riots, talkback radio and the coming APEC talks. There is a deliberate attempt to stereotype Muslim and Arab Australians. Even those who oppose the ‘divide and rule’ tactics of the State let their guard down when an articulate Third World women is speaking about the “backward” and so-called “anti-Modern nature of Islam. They will not scrutinize Ayaan’s political agenda in the same way they might Piers Ackerman or Gerard Henderson – even if she is essentially saying the same thing.


Sure there are “rat bags” and “fundamentalists” within the global Islamic religion and culture. But for thousands of years the Islamic culture co-existed with Jewish people and their culture. It is only now with the rise of political Zionism and the State of Israel, defended by the American Right and US Fundamentalists, that fakes such as Ayaan and others are given prominence with their “Islam is Seventh Century and anti-Modern” line.

Have a look at some of the “extremist” positions from the pro-Zionist camp below and then ask yourself is Ayaan and her supporters correct in ‘casting the first stone’ only against Islam:


“[in the event of sex between a Jewish man and a Gentile woman] the main punishment is inflicted on the Gentile woman; she must be executed, even if she was raped by the Jew." (Jewish History, Jewish Religion: The Weight of Three Thousand Years by Israel Shahak, page 87)


"We Jews are going to bring war on Germany." (David Brown, President of American Hebrew, in 1934, quoted in Edmonson's I Testify, page 188).

"The Second World War is being fought for the defense of the fundamentals of Judaism." (The Chicago Jewish Sentinel, October 8, 1942).

“The seed [children] of Christians valued same as the seed of a beast”. (Kethuboth [3b]).


”It is permitted to take the body and the life of a Gentile." (Sepher Ikkarim III c25)


"We Jews have spoiled the blood of all the races of Europe. Taken as a whole, everything is Jewdified. Our ideas animate everything. Our spirit reigns over the world. We are the Lords" (Dr. Kurt Munzer, The Way to Zion).

”We Jews, we, the destroyers, will remain the destroyers for ever. Nothing that you will do will meet our needs and demands." (Maurice Samuel, You Gentiles, pages 152, 155, and 147).

Who really needs “protection” – Ali or her critics?

Sunday 3rd June 2007, I went to the City Recital Hall and politely started to distribute my leaflet, "THE POLITICS OF ARAB AND MUSLIM BASHING" outside the $35 per person lecture.


Within ten minutes a police officer amongst the approximately twenty strong contingents, courteously asked me to provide him a copy of my leaflet. He read the item and then placed it in his hip pocket. Soon after most of the security guards present asked me for a copy of the same material and I made it available to them. Almost all of those security guards had a very polite exchange with me regarding Ayaan Hirshi Ali. At the outset, it appeared a common sense approach by those police officers and guards, their interaction with me was an example of the Aussie ‘fair go’ attitude at work. But, the ‘boss’ from inside the hall started to put pressure on the security guards to be nasty and forceful with me. The police officers did not intervene as I was not in breach of any law. The embarrassed leader of the private security said, "Mate, you are breaching the peace here – I have to ask you to move". My startled response was, "You know I don't believe in violence and I have not done anything to incite violence, therefore you must not accuse me of such fictitious grounds”. He then said, "Your materials are offending some people inside and they are getting very hot under their collars – they might attack you". I responded by saying, "That would be their problem and how come they are unable to accept any fair criticism and are threatening ME with violence?"


The embarrassed, yet reasonable security guy who by no means would be risking his security license to be a paid thug or anyone’s hired, violent stooge. He said, "Look just move fifty meters from the hall and you will be fine". I said, "I don't have to move, but, for the sake of peace I will walk an extra mile".


However, during the period I was leafleting there, I observed that there were a few different types of people attending the lecture. One group refuses to know you if you do not look like them and walked straight past me. Another group treats words like ‘Arab’ or ‘Muslim’ which were in my leaflet like poison! This second grouping like the first refuse to get involved or to even acknowledge you. The third grouping are in between – they are struggling to find their positions.


One over excited, blustering, middle-aged woman said to me, "Your materials are wrong". I replied, "Why"? She then said, "Look, UTS Professor Jamila Hussain is wrong and it is a fact (that she’s wrong)". She attempted to support her opinion by pointing out Professor Jamila's quote that I had used in that same leaflet. I responded to her, "You are presenting your opinion only and it’s not a `fact' to dismiss my materials. I myself regard Professor Jamila Hussain’s statement here as valid". She roared at me in frustration, "Are you calling me a liar?" I said, "Why are you so militant in nature and how come you are not presenting your argument in a logical manner?" She then continued in her provoking way, "Are you one of those killers who are hunting for her"? I replied, "You are reminding me of those brave child killer Israelis who have been murdering unarmed Palestinian children in their kindergartens, schoolyards and backyards with machine guns, apache helicopters and F18s."


Another cranky, flustered old woman approached me too. The security guards found her exchange with me hilarious and said to me later, "Is she your first critic"?


She begun with, “I am a Dutch, I know everything and you know nothing. Are you Australian? Where do you come from? She (Ayaan) is educated. She will fix violent Muslims". With a giggle I said, "That's why your good friends are supporting and financing her. They will dump her after her ‘use by date’ – you watch". She continued, "You should not be allowed to talk in this country – you should be banned."


The irony here is that the security asked me to move because they feared for my safety. In reality, we need protection from the supporters of Ayaan and not the other way around, where as the entire tour of Ayaan is claimed to be based on her needing around-the-clock security!


Is this a case of “violence begets violence” or more precisely, does it confirm my point that the financial backers of Ali are using her to disguise their own violence against Muslims and Muslim countries around the world?

During the initial stages of reporting of Ali by the Australian media the articles were balanced and they also quoted a number of local Muslims who were critical of Ayaan’s blanket condemnation of Islam based on her incorrect stand and faulty reasoning.


After a couple of days of her appearance in Australia the screws were turned, the clear bias emerged and her monologues were selectively used to create deliberate confusion, uproar and cause injury to the Islamic community.

Surely, the Sydney Writers Festival should be about dialogues and robust discussions. That was the reason I distributed my flyer to generate open and fair debate. In the current atmosphere in Australia it would appear the only dialogue possible now is via the internet and not out in the open in real life.


Are Ershad Manji, Ayaan Hirshi Ali, and Norma Khouri and a few more confused, yet conveniently compliant soles being used as a distraction away from many burning issues one of which is the longest running concentration camp known to mankind, located in the occupied Palestine? Because, this slow motion Israeli holocaust in Palestine is much more painful than the former one!
