Ayaan Hirsi Ali on Islam in the West

August 24, 2008

Ayaan Hirsi Ali is a famous critic of Islam. Born in Somalia, Hirsi Ali emigrated to the Netherlands where she served in the Dutch Parliament. She and Dutch film-maker Theo Van Gogh made a film called "Submission" which so offended some Muslims that a fanatic killed Van Gogh and called for the death of Hirsi Ali, who now lives in the United States. She talks with Steve Paulson about why she believes Islam is inherently incompatible with Western values.
