Why Ayaan Hirsi Ali gets up so many people’s noses.

No longer the property of the writers festival crowd, the former Dutch parliamentarian, author of four books, campaigner for women’s rights, survivor of female genital mutilation and butcher of political orthodoxies has gone mainstream. It is where she deserves to be. And by far the most compelling moral justification for Ali’s celebrity, the reason I keep writing about her, is the illiberal impulses of the two groups united in hating her: the jihadists and the regressive leftists.

    It always amazes me that such a smart person as Ali came out of Somalia.
