Demand That Southern Poverty Law Center Remove Ayaan Hirsi Ali From Their List of Anti-Muslim Extremists

Here is the petition.

Ayaan Hirsi Ali is a Somali-born human rights activist and former Dutch MP. Ali, an ex-Muslim atheist, is a vocal critic of such hardline and fundamentalist Islamic practices as female genital mutilation, –– which she herself has had to endure –– and honor killings, and is a strong advocate for women’s rights in the Islamic world, who she maintains are among the most oppressed women in the world.

I use her videos on my classes on Islam. She is reasoned, deliberate and empathetic. A large number of her speeches are on university campuses. It is hard for me to believe anyone would consider her an extremist. But then again for a time they put Dr. Ben Carson on their list. What’s with these people?
