Muslim when they’re not Muslim

Paul Berman writes in an op-ed for the New York Times:

[In] Western countries, quite a few Muslim liberals, the outspoken ones, live today under a threat of assassination, not to mention a reality of character assassination. Ayaan Hirsi Ali, the Somali-Dutch legislator and writer, is merely an exceptionally valiant example.

Silly me. Here I was thinking Hirsi Ali had been quite open about saying she was “not a Muslim anymore”.

    I’m posting this not to blow my own trumpet but rather to show through my own experiences how feeble much of her reasoning is.
