"Nor is it quite the same as the fate of Ayaan Hirsi Ali, who scripted that film and was forced to escape the Netherlands. She has since moved to the United States, where, of course, she travels with bodyguards"
A bit off the subject - but related in terms of the pervasiveness of political correctness. I was doing a book signing recently and was looking around the bookstore. Now keep in mind that Ayaan Hirsi Ali was born in Somalia and has lived in Saudi Arabia, Ethiopia, Kenya, and the Netherlands. In the bookstore, her work is grouped under "African-American" authors.

That’s a stretch, guess they didn’t have a section for African-Dutch authors and as you note a section on jihad wouldn’t be pc.
