In this visit to New York's 92nd Street Y, Irshad Manji and Ayaan Hirsi Ali discuss the trouble with Islam.
Irshad Manji is the best-selling author of The Trouble with Islam Today: A Muslim's Call for Reform in Her Faith. Manji has been called by The New York Times "Osama bin Laden's worst nightmare". The winner of Oprah Winfrey's first annual 'Chutzpah Award', Manji is currently a visiting fellow at Yale University and is producing a feature film about what there is to love within Islam.
Ayaan Hirsi Ali, the author of The Caged Virgin: An Emancipation Proclamation for Women and Islam, advocates the need for democratic governments to commit to defending the human rights of women in the Islamic world. Ali is a Dutch feminist and politician. She is a prominent (and often controversial) author, film maker, and critic of Islam.

Inteligent and Informative
Excellent read with two intelligent free willed human beings challenging faith with reason and intellect. They are true hero's in the fight against extremism wrapped in faith.
I just finished reading Ayaan's new book, Infidel, which was the most awe inspiring book I have read in recent memory. Her story is simply amazing and her mind is truly beautiful. This interview was from before the release of the book, and made a nice supplement to the book once I was done reading, yet left still wanting more.
An awful read and waste of money.
