If I had the opportunity, I’d recommend the following book to Rosie O’Donnell. It probably wouldn’t change her mind, but it just MIGHT make her think a little differently.
by Ayaan Hirsi Ali
This is the autobiography of the Somali-born woman who became a member of the Dutch parliament, and collaborated on a film about domestic violence against Muslim women with controversial director Theo van Gogh. He was assassinated, and she has a price on her head now. Her narration on Islamic culture is shocking; the way the women are treated is beyond disgusting. She was subjected to genital mutilation and later forced into an unwanted marriage. She is about 37 years old now, is a strong woman, and gives a real picture of the so-called religion of peace.
No American woman would stand for the treatment that these women of the Muslim world have to endure!
“No American woman would stand for the treatment that these women of the Muslim world have to endure!”
This is what is so incredibly baffling about the left in the US. They are choosing not to respond to the known human rights issues that permeate Muslim society. Ther sole focus is on demonizing Bush. Classic example of “forrest and trees”.
