Who the hell confused Somalia with Israel?

scream

During Siad Barre (Somali dictator from 1969 to 1991), there was an Arabization program in Somalia that entailed the hatred of Jews as part of a standardized process of Arabization of our formerly non-Arab country

6 hidden Google Maps tricks you want to know

Don't plan your trip without checking out these tips first.

Mapping out a long trip, or even your daily commute to avoid traffic, is super stressful -- but it becomes even more frustrating when you can't find a parking spot or you lose signal just when a turn is coming up.

Ayaan Hirsi Ali is a Somali-born Dutch-American activist, feminist, author, scholar and former politician.

Ayaan Hirsi Ali was embraced by the uber-tolerant people of the Netherlands - until it was noticed what poison she was spreading eg:

"Violence is inherent in Islam - it's a destructive, nihilistic cult of death. It legitimates murder".

The discussion you want in your society? Be honest - you might want faith-hatred in your country!

The Dutch asked her to leave.

The fact that she'd lied about "fleeing" and claiming asylum didn't help - especially when it was discovered she'd even lied about her name and her date of birth and her origins!

In May 2006 the TV programme Zembla reported that Hirsi Ali had given false information about her name, her age, and her country of residence when originally applying for asylum.[51] In her asylum application, she had claimed to be fleeing a forced marriage, but the Zembla coverage featured interviews with her family, who denied that claim.[52] The program alleged that, contrary to Hirsi Ali's claims of having fled a Somali war zone, the MP had been living comfortably in upper middle-class conditions safely in Kenya with her family for at least 12 years before she sought refugee status in the Netherlands in 1992.

In her version of events, she had fled civil war in Somalia, was forced into an arranged marriage with a man whom she had never met, and was not present at her own wedding. Upon escaping she was forced into hiding in the Netherlands, for her ex-husband and father's brothers would have been by Somali custom, required to perform an honor killing.

The accounts of various witnesses varied greatly from hers. According to them, she left Somalia prior to any mass violence, and led a ####, upper-middle class life in neighboring Kenya, where she attended a Muslim Girls' school and received a full western-style education with focus on the Humanities and Science, her brother attended a Christian school, she lied to the Dutch immigration service about coming from Somalia in order not to be sent back to Kenya, and they allege she met her husband a few days before her wedding.

After several meetings with him, they allege she agreed to the marriage, even though her mother said Ayaan should finish her education so she could afford to leave him if the marriage should have been unsuccessful. They also allege that Hirsi Ali was present at the wedding, something her brother later denied, and according to several witnesses appeared to be enjoying herself.

Hirsi Ali denies all of this. On her way to Canada, she says she travelled to Holland by train during a stopover in Germany, and applied for political asylum. During her stay in Holland she regularly received letters from her father.[53] The documentary also quoted several native Somalians as saying there is no tradition of honor killing in Somalia, something that is disputed.[54] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ayaan_Hirsi_Ali#Dutch_citizenship_Controversy

I don't hate or despise Hirsi Ali - but tell me - how would we treat a Jew who so savagely attacked Judaism?

Hand them plum jobs in academia and politics and laud the books full of anti-semitic filth they'd written?

Ayaan Hirsi Ali was embraced by the uber-tolerant people of the Netherlands - until it was noticed what poison she was spreading eg:

"Violence is inherent in Islam - it's a destructive, nihilistic cult of death. It legitimates murder".

Be honest - do you want faith-hatred  much more extreme than anything from the Nazis in your society?
