Man do you know her?Do you know anything about Somali people....I'm getting tired of defending my culture, because someone decided to play open cards in the Netherlands....genital mutilation is a horrible act,for generations it has been practised in Somalia...its easy to look at it with a western state of mind without researching the economical/social aspects it has for women...For many mothers/grandmothers its an act of love,they dont want their (grand)daughters to be the outcast of society so they circumcise them
Ayaan Ali ( I know her personally) is JUST A FUCKING OPPORTUNIST...I dont mind that she is expressing her ideas..but she is just another well assimilated immigrant who's jumping on the 9/11 bandwagon...its sad
>She moved to the West because she didn't want to grow up in >a culture where women are treated like shit, FUCKING LIE, SHE WAS AN OPPORTUNIST REFUGEE WHO FLED FROM THE ARAB COUNTRIES TO THE NETHERLANDS...please don't repeat what the media has fed you.....
> where their >genitalia are being mutilated and are forced to marry men >they don't know. This isnt a commen practise in Somali culture and she wasnt forced to marry a man she didnt know....Her father is a well known ( socalled modern western-educated)man in the Somali community....check the Somali BBC site, they interviewed him few weeks ago...
Its funny,but her story is based on lies...a lot of Somali's living in the netherlands know that...but they all choose to stay quiet..
That's not the essence of Islam, but that >is reality in many Muslim countries. Including Somalia, >where she's from. >She doesn't like that and doesn't want to live in a place >where that happens, nor does she want any daughters she >might have to have to go through that as well, so she left.
>How the fuck does that make here an "uncle Tom"? >She doesn't critisize Islam as a whole, but the extremely >radical aspects that people added,
So what is she actually critisizing...Extremists???The headlines in the Dutch newspapers are saying something different...I dont know if you have seen her television appearance, she seemed very biased..not able to point out what her greatest concern is...she also lacks solutions..I do agree with her that there are issues in muslim families...but what is her solution...?How is she going to help those women she's referring to?
