The left’s strange hostility to Hirsi Ali

Ayaan Hirsi Ali lives under armed guard and was forced to abandon the Netherlands because quite a lot of people want to kill her.And not in the desultory behead-the-enemies-of-Islam you-will-die-infidel pro forma death-threats-R-us way that many of us have perforce gotten used to in recent years: her great friend and professional collaborator was murdered in the streets of Amsterdam by a man who shot him eight times, attempted to decapitate him, and then drove into his chest two knives, pinning to what was left of him a five-page note pledging to do the same to her. – Mark Steyn
