Infidel...a book recommendation

Infidel, by Ayaan Hirsi Ali is an incredible book--a combination of personal memoir and political statement.  Read it and weep.  Read it and be astounded, engaged, fascinated, repelled...above all, read it and learn.  

For those of you who don't already know, Ali was the originator of the idea that became the short movie Submission...which she and Theo van Gogh made...and for which he was killed by an Islamic fanatic.  

If you care about human rights, about women's rights, about individual freedom, and the governments that flow from them...read this book.
