(PDF) [Nomad From Islam to America A Personal Journey Through the Clash of Civilizations]

The Life of Kitty Storm dAyaan Hirsi Ali was born in Somalia into a strict Muslim familyWhen her father sent her overseas to marry a man sheid not know Ali chose to ignore her family s wishes and carve out a new life for herself in the NetherlandsAfter studying political science and getting a Aliens Bride Book degree she joined the Labour Party After 911 Ali Ayaan Hirsi Ali is an excellent writer The events she has seen with her own eyes are gripping and worth serious consideration However I m also convinced she s a paranoid wingnut who throws out a bunch of wild assertions instead of factsShe is convincing when she Therapy of Love describes the abuse she and the women she knows have suffered in Somalia Saudi Arabia and other lovely hotspots in Africa and the Middle East I saw this and that happen is great evidence However there is no evidence that suggests she has any idea what she s talking about when she talks about Islam in America Are there horrible things happening in Muslim schools madrassas or communities in America Okay take us there Show us the mosue Interview some people Show us a pattern Don t throw out McCarthyite crap like if you see women going to the mosue it might be full of radicalsThrow in a few obvious errors in fact the Protocols of the Elders of Zion were faked by Russians NOT the Nazis and one has to wonder just how much research she s reallyone Maybe her bodyguards got in the way Though it s odd that Connecting in College despite bringing up over and over again how she has to pay for round the clock protection she never mentions any actual attempts on her life There are some good ideas in here I think she s right that we should be pushing the hardline Islamic nations much harder on their treatment of women But unleashing the Catholic Church to try to convert those crazy Muslims to Christianity Sorry but this little old secular humanist will pass on THAT one When I began this book I knew there be some opinions I would not share knowing Ayaan s been published in a prominent right wing newspaper in Australia But I always think it s good to challenge yourself with Feminism and the Women's Movement Dynamics of Change in Social Movement Ideology and Activism Perspectives on Gender differing opinions as they can only enhance your own views so I persevered til the endThe one thing I really liked was her chapter on Western feminism and their ignorance and inaction on Muslim women s issues for fear of being Islamophobic However a similar and better critiue of Western feminism is made in Your Fatwa Does Not Apply Here by Karima Bennoune so I suggest you just read thatOur agreements end there as she goes on to attribute the oppression of women to Islam itself rather than to patriarchy needless to say her argument completely fails to explain the oppression of women in non Muslim countries She also states that European anti Semitism ended with Hitler which is just blatantly wrong Her apparent idolisation of Western society is also uite irritating but it is to be expected if one went from experiencing life in Saudi Arabia to living in the Netherlands arguably one of the most liberalemocracies in the worldHer favourable opinion of Christianity is puzzling still being a BWWM (Interracial African American Billionaire Baby Romance Marriage Urban) 2 (Interracial African American Billionaire Baby Romance Marriage Urban) 2: Billionaires Secret Baby (BWWM Interracial African American Romance Urban Baby Romance Short Stories) declared atheist as she seems to have forgotten than even with reform the Church has had to beragged kicking and screaming into modernity and with the exception of a few isolated parishes is still not a bastion of social euality EditAlso an obvious critiue which I should ve added earlier is to The Passport That Does Not Pass Ports do with the title Her use of the phrase Clash of Civilisations clearly indicates her agreement with Samuel P Huntington s theory that cultural and religious identities particularly in relation to Islam and The West are the primary cause of conflict in the post Cold War world For me this idea is so easy to refute look up Edward Said and Noam Chomsky I ll only say this Islam is an Abrahamic religion and therefore closely connected to Judaism and Christianity The idea that Islam has suddenly become the opponent to Western civilisation ignores the fact that these three religions have co existed for centuries have influenced each other s cultures and have endured periods where one or other of the three religions was theominant political force There is no clash of civilisations between Islam Judaism Christianity because they are born of the same God and conseuently have a shared civilisation and cultural background Yet another author that I wish I knew personally This book is an excellent seuel to her first book Infidel Everyone should read both of them and mind you this is coming from me Honestly I m rarely pushy with books "Or At Least I "at least I not to be The older I get the less I seem to tell people what to The Arcav Princes Captive (Arcav Alien Invasion, do Her two books are an exception Towards the end of the book sheoes a brilliant job calling feminists to action to take up the cause of Muslim women and girls After all how can today s feminists call themselves that if they Southern Women at the Seven Sister Colleges Feminist Values and Social Activism 1875 1915 don t stand up toiscrimination in the name of religion and culture That chapter was one of my favourites Some uotes that I loved and wish to share The veil eliberately marks women as private and restricted property nonpersons The veil sets women apart from men and apart from the world *it restrains them confines them grooms them for ocility A mind can be cramped just as *restrains them confines them grooms them for Agricultural Innovation in the Early Islamic World docility A mind can be cramped just as body may be and a Muslim veil blinkers both your vision and yourestiny It is the mark of a kind of apartheid not the omination of a race but of a sex And one of my all time favoritesThe trap of resentment It is probably the worst mental prison in the world It is the inability to let go of anger and the perceived or real injustices we suffer Some people let one or two or maybe ten unpleasant experiences poison the rest of their lives They let their anger ferment and rot their personality They end up seeing themselves as victims of their parents teachers their peers and preachersI have a few other favorite uotes but I ll spare you all Again recommended reading for all I hope that she will continue writing and contributing Ayaan Hirsi Ali s books are not the type of books for which you can say continue writing and contributing Ayaan Hirsi Ali s books are not the type of books for which you can say like it or I on t like it Those sorts of evaluations are just too trivial and utterly inadeuate Nomad is not exception Her Infidel blown me away and this one is a sort of seuel She s an exceptionally brave woman and in her books she s not compromising with very sensitive issues which leaves two options to the reader to agree or Big Book of AA All 12 Steps Understand and Complete One Step At A Time in Recovery with Alcoholics Anonymous 12 of 12 Books disagree But then she elaborates her statements incredibly strongly so when you reisagreeing it s in the form of some unpleasant feeling than strong New Writing, New Approaches (African Literature Today, Vol. 12) disagreement For instance I opt to consider myself as a very tolerant man who respect individuality in every single form and as such the word assimilation never raised positive emotion But then if you re moving from a tribal society that lives according the few centuries old rules into 21st century Holland you just can NOT live according to the tribal rules You can NOT perform genital mutilation to youraughter you can NOT teach your son to hit first if his schoolmate is Culture and Development in Africa (Comparative Studies in African/Caribbean Literature Series) disagreeing with him you can NOT hate your new adopted society So I realized when reading. This woman is a major hero of our time Richard Dawkins Ayaan Hirsi Ali captured the world’s attention with Infidel her compelling coming of age memoir which spent thirty one weeks on the New York Times bestseller list Now in Nomad Hirsi Ali tells of coming to America to build a new life an ocean away from theeath threats made to her by European Islamists the strife she witnessed and the inner conflict she suffered It is the story of her physical journey to freedom and crucially her emotional journey to freedom her transition from a tribal mind set that restricts women’s every thought and action to a life as a free and eual citizen in an open society Through stories of the challenges she has faced she shows the ifficulty of reconciling the co. Nomad From Islam to America A Personal Journey Through the Clash of CivilizationsOk because it was partly auto biographical yet also addressed the issues of Muslims in the Western world Ayaan evotes the first few chapters to members of her family her relationship with them their struggles with her Islam andor in adapting to life in the West Her honesty is poignant revealing and often heart breaking Considering the security risks she lives with has lived with ever since she first broke with her family I cannot imagine how she has the courage to write as she Activism and the American Novel does She s an inspiration to me Beyond her own life she explores the wider issues facing Muslims especially those of Muslim women in the West She has started her own organization AHAFoundation to help these women As a survivor of female genital mutilation Hirshi Ali knows FGM is real brutaliscriminatory and is practiced against helpless girls and women without repercussion along with sexual abuse and honor killing She speaks all over the world in Agriculture at a Glance Revised Edition defense of this numerical majorityefacto minority There s much which can be said about this marvelous lady and her book but if you are genuinely interested you will not want to waste your time reading me or this review Get your hands on something by her I have already ordered two of her books one as a birthday gift for my oldest A Love No Less Two Centuries of African American Love Letters daughter and one for me hopefully myaughter will loan the gift back to me when she is through This one I m passing on to a friend Ayaan says she is an atheist but she also believes in Reason much as St Pope John Paul II believed in Reason with a capital R Also she seems to be kindness integrity compassion and wisdom welling in a human soul so I am inclined to think this may be a resting position along her spiritual journey Join me in praying for her The Christian God you say your people are looking for loves you immensely Ayaan May He bless you and your work Thank you bl very pertinent to me Social workers in the West will tell you that immigrants need to maintain group cohesion for their mental health becau Undoubtedly an exceptional mind here There is no surprise that she has attacted so much attention One only wishes that her personal life could have been richly rewarding but then one can t have everything Perhaps if she had a family that loved her we would not be the recipients of her mental largesse A couple of things stand out 1 this is yet another woman from a Muslim background

when challenged to put greater restrictions on the behaviors of Muslims in the USA 3 she herself admits that many Muslims are instinctively appalled by the violence committed in the name of their faith She asserts that most Muslimso not know the content of the uran or the Hadith or any Islamic scripture My thoughts exactly I have often thought that many Muslims are rather like many Christians who have barely read the Bible They are just ordinary people trying to get on with their life They have a superstructure a religious belief but it is not profound or eep It gives them a parameter for aily life and behaviors I believe most mothers Muslim or not would be appalled if their sons Alien decided to blow themsleves up for any reason at all I am grateful to Ayaan Hirsi Ali for writing the book and giving us insight into her life her family and her thoughts The section on her family wasifficult to read in fact It was so 10 Essential Survivor Secrets to Liberate Yourself from

Must Read s must read Ayaan is just impressive It is hard to believe she was born speaking Arabic and Somali and that English is not her mother tongue I was born speaking Arabic but she is far sophisticated intelligent academically analytical than I am I read her book sit at her feet and learn from her such an excellent scholar Her life comes through this book and she is every bit as real and at the same time she is really well learned and you can t help but read her phrases over and over again so you can learn from her That is what I have been oing since I got into her world in that book She is one of the few rare honest people that our world needs that world blinded by political correctness at the cost of truth I plan on reading every book of hers and no Ways of Knowing About Birth doubt I am getting richer through thatThe first three parts areedicated to what is wrong with Islam and the last part is supposed to offer Remedies as of p 205 When I read that part I liked some of it and most of it seemed like far fetched solutions Like many intellectuals Ayaan offers us the Enlightenment as the savior of Islam from the HeroAca deep mess it has got into Well Enlightenment is based on Go Inuire even if this means you would end up free of all religion We all know that no Muslim would venture too that knowing he might eventually lose his religion Ayaan herself has beautifully stated it on page 214 that Islam by contrast is incompatible with the principles of liberty that are at the heart of the Enlightenment legacy If that is the case Ayan and indeed it is why bother to offer Enlightenment as a solution to Islam when Islam itself Reading Africa into American Literature doesn t accept any form of change in obedience to the sacred text of the uran The whole chapter is excellent read but the whole book could have been written without that part on remedies However it poses some uestions for us to elaborate on further research projects Overall a huge salute to the free woman the free thinker the free soul the liberated intelligent woman that she Mistake of underestimating radical Islam She calls on key institutions of the West including universities the feminist movement and the Christian churches to enact specific innovative remedies that would help other Muslim immigrants to overcome the challenges she has experienced and to resist the fatal allure of fundamentalism and terrorism This is Hirsi Ali’s intellectual coming of age a memoir that conveys her philosophy as well as her experiences and that also conveys an urgent message and mission to inform the West of the extent of the threat from Islam both from outside and from within our open societies A celebration of free speech andemocracy Nomad is an important contribution to the history of ideas but above all a rousing call to action. This book that assimilation is NOT necessarily wrong In Hirsi Ali s words when I talk about assimilation I talk about assimilation into civilization When I was in Holland last April I talked with one very ear man in his 60s 70s He has a lovely house lovely family grandkids still working because he loves not because he has to I could say he s uite wealthy So I was interested what would be his concerns to make small igression Jostein Gaardar answered on the same uestion Global warming and I was stunned because wow what kind of life you were suppose to live if global warming is your main concern I guess you just have to be Norwegian and indeed global warming would be very rational concern if you re a Dutch but he said Islamic radicalism You know this is not response you would usually hear in Holland because people who think that way are labeled as non tolerant but reply has had perfect sense to me but I was surprisedWe Algorithm Of Future don t even recognize in how many forms Islamism can be among us There is one part when Hirsi Aliescribes her experiences from lecturing among US universities Usually before she even finishes there is a line of Muslim students who are waiting to express their The Progressive Guide to Alternative Media and Activism Project Censored Open Media Pamphlet Series 8 disagreements before she even finishes her thoughts by the way but every now and then I realized that my arguments were achieving something Perhaps I was not changing the minds of the self appointedefenders of Islam but I was opening the eyes of the majority of non Muslim students in the audience Often I glimpsed the horror on their faces as they realized that these veiled and bearded youngsters with whom for years they had shared cups of coffee books and classes In My Shoes did not share their most basic values This book is mostly about her life in USA and therefore there is one uestion which stricken me and I think it overcome America Can you be a Muslim and an American patriot and she replies immediately You can if youon t care very much about being a Muslim You know it must be horrifying being a Muslim if that s indeed truth So horrifying that I feel an empathy towards them She wrote one great imaginary BWWM (An African American Romance) (BWWM Paranormal Scifi Romance) dialogue between a Muslim girl Amina and her friend Jane after the Mumbai attacks

a middle of the pack books But which one Nomad claimed my intention as a middle of the pack Ntradictions of Islam with Western values In these pages Hirsi Ali recounts the many turns her life took

movingly of her reconciliation on his Sex Work Activism in Canada deathbed with herevout father who had BWWM (Interracial Romance BWWM African American Multicultural Romance) disowned her when she
