You can watch the segment here: Ayaan Hirsi Ali on The Colbert Report. I’m having trouble embedding it using the code the site provides. I loved her remark at the end of the segment: “The freedom of the individual goes above anything that any god can say.“
(h/t: Isaac Schrödinger).
Typical Muslim remark:
Some of the things she said, it’s like she was quoting Shaytaan verbatim! [Astaghfirullah! --ed.] That is the only way I can think of to describe it. She says outright that she has a problem submitting to God!! It’s one thing to fall short in following what Allah (swt) has commanded, but subhanAllah it is a completely different story to have this extreme level of arrogance in your approach to your relationship with your Creator and Sustainer!
Her “extreme level of arrogance” differs from that of Iblees [Satan --ed.] because she’s an atheist. To a certain degree, Iblees somewhat recognized the existence of Allaah. Ayaan Hirsi Ali, on the other hand, doesn’t subscribe to the Judeo-Christian-Islamic understanding of evil.
Another Muslim correctly explains why Muslims should fight Ayaan. He quotes the holy book of the Religion of PeaceTM:
Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and those who are with him are severe against disbelievers, and merciful among themselves. [Surat Al-Fath 48:29]
O you who believe! fight those of the unbelievers who are near to you and let them find in you hardness; and know that Allah is with those who guard (against evil).
