7/18/07: Infidel

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – In 2004, Ayaan Hirsi Ali and the Dutch filmmaker Theo van Gogh began a documentary that Ali has said was about defiance - "about Muslim women who shift from total submission to God to a dialogue with their deity." They knew it was dangerous, and in November of that year, van Gogh was killed for it. Ali was raised in Somalia and fled to Europe to escape what she saw as the brutality of Islamic culture. Her memoir Infidel chronicles her journey. Wednesday she joins Doug to talk about her relationship to her own culture, and about the transformative moments when she chose to live a life that wasn't traditional.
