Ayaan Hirsi Ali Quotes

4 Jun , 2015  

The 10 best Ayaan Hirsi Ali Quotes :

1)”Of course, the overwhelming majority of Muslims are not terrorists or sympathetic to terrorists. Equating all Muslims with terrorism is stupid and wrong. But acknowledging that there is a link between Islam and terror is appropriate and necessary.”

There is nothing more; but I want nothing more.”

3)”Avoiding offense means that we don’t accept each other as equals.”

3)”A race cannot be purified from without.”
