Honored

Ayan Hirsi Ali is one of my favorite people. I think she's darn brave for taking the fight to the Islamists and fanatics who wouldn't mind putting an end to her life and I do realize that it takes a lot of guts, courage and patience to stay in the fight against these radicals. I think our world is a better place due to her existence.

Any how, a few months ago, I asked through a very good friend of mine at AEI to get her autograph for me. And yesterday afternoon, I received a parcel which contained her recent biography "Infidel" signed by her. I couldn't believe my eyes though...

She has signed it and written this : "To (....), Live In Liberty!"

I am really honored, grateful and surprised. Thank you Ayan!

Wow!! Winston, don't every lose that book or damage it in any way. With her signature on it, it could be very valuable some day. Not that it doesn't have great value to you personally, of course.

Not that I want to bring you down, but have you ever seen this interview of her by the asshole, Avi Lewis.

I posted that before

HOW NICE,
SHE IS INDEED ONE OF THE BRAVEST MUSLIM WOMEN IN THE WORLD! MORE POWER TO HER. A FRIEND OF MINE HAS MET HER AND SHE SAYS THAT SHE IS MUCH MORE ELEGANT, SOFT SPOKEN AND IMPRESSIVE IN PERSON.

She's also quite the looker as well. If she's a sample of what's hiding under all those burqas, then I'm beginning to understand the concept. You don't put on display what you don't want stolen.

Do you know that Ayaan had to go back to the Netherlands, as the dutch government refused to keep paying for security while she is in the States? It seems the american government, or her current employer aren't prepared to take over the expenses, so she had to come back here..Reactions in the Netherlands are shameful - people say she brought the threats on herself for speaking out against islamism and for women, and so they think she has to face the threat to her life alone, unless she stays here (in Holland, that is)
So you have lost her again - over money!
