Ayaan Hirsi AliAnother plug for the provocateur Ayaan Hirsi Ali, currently pursuing her career in a right-wing US think-tank. She offers the following helpful contribution to the “debate” over the veil:

“… what increasingly alarms me is the emergence of a post 9/11 generation of young women in the West who are out to make a statement by wearing the niqab. They enjoy all the western freedoms but choose to flaunt the veil. They are the female equivalent of the radical young men who travel to Pakistan and come back wanting to blow up trains.”
