Religion can't survive without censorship.

Right wing fundie christians vs. muslims who insist on the right to deny women basic human rights. Kind of like the Iran-Iraq war. Sensible people hope for a way to be found for both sides to lose.

The heroic Somali woman AyaanHirsi Ali prevented from receiving an honorary degree at Brandeis University last week. Muslim group under CAIR really messed up in the home office.
The 45-year-old Somali-born Ayaan Hirsi Ali (who WORLD profiled in 2007) would seem to have an impeccable resume: She is a member of a Dutch political party thats liberal on drugs, abortion, and homosexuality. She is an atheist, having been converted to atheism through her readings of Freud and Leiden philosopher Herman Philipses The Atheist Manifesto. She is the founder of the AHA Foundation, which speaks out for women against honor violence, forced marriage, and female genital mutilation, and in favor of womens control over their bodies, access to education, financial independence, and freedom to work outside the home.
Nevertheless, the sum total of these liberal credentials was not able to save Hirsi Ali from the Muslim police. Lobbying by the ubiquitous Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), by Muslim convert professor Joseph Lumbard, and by certain offended students, resulted in the university presidents decision to rescind the prestigious invitation because the views of Hirsi-Ali, a former Muslim, are considered Islamophobic.
