CA: CRITIC OF ISLAM TO SHARE STORY OF HER JOURNEY
In the wake of Sept. 11, 2001, Ayaan Hirsi Ali began studying her Muslim faith, digging deep into the Quran to understand why 19 zealots would turn airplanes into missiles.
Quickly convinced the Quran was diametrically opposed to peace, she renounced Islam and, with Theo van Gogh, co-produced a film criticizing the religion’s treatment of women. . .
And tonight in Century City, she will share her story with about 200 Jews from the American Jewish Committee’s young professionals group, Access.
