Newsweek's 'Muslim Rage' cover sparks controversy
http://english.ahram.org.eg ^ | 09-18-2012 | Ayaan Hirsi Ali

Posted on 09/18/2012 3:55:53 PM PDT by bronxville

The cover story is written by Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a well-known Somali-born rights activist and former Dutch lawmaker whose criticism of Islam has earned her death threats.

In it, she describes her own experience of renouncing Islam as well as making a short film with Theo van Gogh about Muslim women that saw the Dutch filmmaker shot and stabbed to death.

The article comes as Muslims in at least 20 countries have staged angry demonstrations outside US embassies and other American symbols in protest against an anti-Islam film called "Innocence of Muslims."

what happened to the Newsweek cover, ‘Hit the road, Obama?’
Never did see it on the news stands.
Was that a hoax?

The leftist elites trying to make it into an “uproar” (CBS) and some are mocking it (Gayle King...) probably because Ayaan wrote it. Remember she helped make a movie with Theo Van Gogh about Mo. I do know I’ll be buying it. Good for Newsweek...they seem to be getting some spine of late.

Why they hate us... and what we can do about it

We've already turned over our government to them. What more do they want?

They would have a bigger impact on the distribution of the news if they kidnapped a paper boy in a small town.

The "secret" to perpetuating an insane death cult.
Actually, the prerequisite.

Lol. My concern is that we should have a zero-tolerance policy towards islam. And have NO imported islamics anywhere. Strict quarantine, keep them behind an iron curtain.

Excellent point. I kept looking for it to score a copy, but never saw a copy.

“Good for Newsweek...they seem to be getting some spine of late.”

It seems that just possibly Newsweek found a niche that was being (wilfully??)ignored, and needed to be filled.

The news is total garbage. I’m flipping around waiting for jeopardy, and happen to stop on Brian Williams reporting on some nude photo scandal in England. Obviously tailored to Obama voters.

Absolutely not.
Took the Q-Tip (mom) to the eye doctor,and,lo and behold,FoxNews was on the big-screen TV in the lobby (refreshing not to see CNN or MSLSD!) and that issue of Newsweak-with that article-was lying on the table in plain view! It was actually a good article,since it was in Newsweak,and well worth the read.

I wonder if Newsweek is making some last gasp effort to become objective, letting Ayaan Hirsi Ali author an article on Moslem rage? She's definitely one who'll tell it like it is.

But what I want to know is: Why isn't Moslem Rage Boy on the cover?

Yes, the controversy is over whether Muslims can threaten us.

Not a hoax. We have a copy at work. I have seen it with my own two eyes.
