In Slate two weeks ago, Christopher Hitchens mentioned that security for Dutch Muslim activist, author, film maker, and critic of Islam, Ayaan Hirsi Ali might have to be paid for partly by private subscription.
Here are the details for all who may wish to contribute to this eminently deserving cause. Checks should be made payable to the Ayaan Hirsi Ali Security Trust and sent to the same trust in care of Bank of Georgetown, 1054 31st St., NW, Suite 18, Washington, D.C. 20007. The trust’s tax identification number is 75-6826872.
Those who prefer wire transfer should use account number 1010054748 and bank routing number 054001712. This appeal is a test of our seriousness in the face of theocracy and its assassins.
Theocrats should know that the world will NOT stand for their intolerance.
Btw, Hitchens hit a home run today in Slate.com by pointing out that the U.S. should be putting pressure on Turkey for its dismal human rights record and the fact that it hurt our war in Iraq by closing the northern front of that war.
