The Rise and Fall of Ayaan Hirsi Ali

In the Guardian:

A Somali-born Dutch MP who came to symbolise the Netherlands’ troubled relations with Islam is planning to leave her adopted country and settle in the United States.

Ayaan Hirsi Ali is expected to announce today that she will resign as an MP, days after a television programme accused her of lying in 1992 in order to secure Dutch nationality.

Ms Hirsi Ali, a fierce critic of radical Islam who lives under armed guard, wants to pre-empt any move by the Netherlands’ tough immigration minister to strip her of Dutch citizenship.

She will be going to the American Enterprise Institute. More reactions here.
