Ayaan Hirsi Ali returns to Netherlands

Ayaan Hirsi Ali is in the Netherlands this week to promote the release of her book Nomad. This marks her first substantive vision to the country since leaving Dutch parliament four years ago. During her visit, Ali commented on controversial politician Geert Wilders, suggesting that he is preventing violence by allowing a segment of the population to channel their anger through voting as opposed to rioting, though she also criticized him for raising false expectations with proposals that “cannot be translated into policy.”
