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.Advertisements 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...

So when I saw those kids, it’s a true reflection of myself and who I used to be.” Ibn Ali is a lifelong resident of Atlantic City and knows many of the kids. “The main thing that I was trying to convey to them was to respect themselves” said Miller. His actions attracted celebrity praise and he was honoured by the city’s...
