Produced by Persons of Interest, an upcoming News and media platform dedicated to conversations about social justice, Six Muslim Women speak directly to Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a star of the global Islamophobia Industry.
In this powerful video, the women say “Ayaan Hirsi Ali, you do not speak for us. You are not our ally. You’re not interested in our lives or our freedom. You’ve described Muslim women as being irrational, docile, having no minds of our own. You’ve called us slaves.
How can you claim to stand for our liberation when you simply repeat the language of our oppressors?
This is not the language of solidarity, or understanding, or freedom. This is the language of patriarchy and misogyny. This is the language of white supremacy.
This is the language used to justify wars, invasion and genocide. You’re not here to help us or stand with us. You’re here to profit from an industry that exists to dehumanise us.
An industry built on selling hatred, misinformation and stereotypes. This hatred you feed puts us in danger every day.
It encourages fear, persecution and violence.
This is not brave. This is not progressive. This is propaganda.”
