"One November morning in 2004, Theo van Gogh got up to go to work at his film production company in Amsterdam. He took out his old black bicycle and headed down a main road. Waiting in a doorway was a Moroccan man with a handgun and two butcher knives. "As Theo cycled down the Linneausstraat, Mohammad Bouyeri approached. He pulled out his gun and shot Theo several times. Theo fell off his bike and lurched across the road, then collapsed. Bouyeri followed. Theo begged, "Can't we talk about this?" but Bouyeri shot him four more times. Then he took out one of his butcher knives and sawed into Theo's throat. With the other knife, he stabbed a five-page letter onto Theo's chest. "The letter was addressed to me." Thus begins "Infidel", the autobiography of activist, film-maker, politician, and atheist Ayaan Hirsi Ali. In her book, Ayaan chronicles the remarkable saga of her childhood in Somalia, her fall away from Islamic beliefs, her emigration to Europe and then to the United States, and her entry into the dangerous business of speaking out against the extremist elements within Islam. Not for the squeamish, this book is an authentic rendition of a truly authentic life--a life on the cutting edge of the social, economic, and geopolitical issues of our times.
