To MuhammadCPA's assertions:

". Every Civilized people & Intellectual do understand the the difference between Freedom of the writer & the slenderous attack on another Faith & Religion...Ayaan Hirsi is NO more Muslim and she must change her Name to any name of the West, where she has found a Haven. ...

Ayaan Hirsi has NO Rights to criticize my Holy Quran & my Religion- Islam. "

No, MuhammadCPA, Ms. Hirsi Ali does not have to change her name if she does not want to, even if she is no longer a Muslim. And yes, Ms. Hirsi Ali has every right to criticize the Quran and Islam, if she wants to. Yes, that is part of what freedom of religion and freedom of expression are, which we in America still have, despite those who would like to take it away, which, judging from your statements, includes you. Those of us who cherish freedom of religion and expression find your ideas (that someone must change their name because you say so, or that they have no right to criticize a particular religion or a particular book) far, far more immoral than anything Ms. Hirsi Ali has done, even if we do not agree with all her views, or approve of all her actions.
