I wrote earlier this year:
Ayaan Hirsi Ali applied for asylum in the Netherlands in 1992. Hirsi Ali couldn't have possibly imagined that fourteen years later, she would, in effect, apply for asylum in another nation.
The boundary of the Free West is shrinking.
This serves as a dark warning for the Americans. They are witnessing the slow obliteration of liberal values in Europe, thanks to Islamism and multiculturalism. America must continue to fight the Islamists and not allow herself to be intimidated by the evil of our age.
For where would Hirsi Ali go if the US were to give in?
Today Dutch prime minister Jan Peter Balkenende has Dutch citizen Ayaan Hirsi Ali advised to leave the country and go back to the United States. He said that she shouldn’t come back to The Netherlands for protection.
Leaving her to the wolves won't buy the Netherlands any protection. In fact, the Dutch have earned the contempt of Islamists, for showing such weakness, and reduced their standing in the eyes of every sound Westerner.
