MONITORING AND COMBATING ISLAMOPHOBIA

A Project of the Council on American-Islamic Relations

Ayaan Hirsi Ali

Ayaan Hirsi Ali is a former Dutch politician and a current anti-Islam figure residing in the United States. She founded the Ayaan Hirsi Ali Foundation in 2007.

According to the AHA Foundation’s website, the organization fights “the continued oppression of women and girls in the US committed in the name of religion and culture”. CAIR wholeheartedly condemns any disparity of equal protection of rights, wherever and whenever it occurs. However, Hirsi Ali’s path to defend women from human rights abuses falsely, and viciously, attempts to incriminate all Muslims for the atrocities.

Hirsi Ali has a reputation for anti-Muslim and anti-Constitutional rhetoric.

For example, during the course of a single 2007 interview with Reason Magazine Ali said, “I think that we are at war with Islam” and called for Islam to be “defeated.” Later in the interview, Ali suggested that the U.S. Constitution should be amended to allow for discrimination against Muslims saying, “There were no Muslim schools when the constitution was written. There were no jihadists.”

Hirsi Ali has also referenced Islam as “a nihilistic cult of death” and that it “legitimizes murder”.

In 2014, Brandeis University withdrew its invitation to Hirsi Ali to receive an honorary degree at commencement ceremonies after being informed of her rhetoric. In its statement announcing the withdrawal of Ali’s invitation, the university said: “We cannot overlook that certain of her past statements are inconsistent with Brandeis University’s core values.”
