But... the tone of the article! ..."some call her a sel-promoting traitor"... This woman has been chased from two countries with multiple, credible death threats - including the threat jabbed by a dagger into the bloody torso of filmmaker Theo Van Gogh . Let's contrast this rather mocking, cynical tone of the writer to the MS media adulation provided to the Dixie Chicks, who are not at all courageous, not serving the interests other than their own. They are held up as heroic and given (meaningless) grammy trophies by the left. What's your definition of a hero? Hirsi Ali fits my profile of courage.
Pray that this brave, bold, beautiful woman will find the peace of Jesus.

When a true hero comes along, the sophisticated people can't do anything but sneer and jeer. But they will take seriously any second-rate political hack and they will worship any third-rate artist who profanes Christian symbols.
