On Saturday’s “Huckabee” on the Fox News Channel, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a Somali-born activist that crusades against the brutalities of Islam, explained to host Mike Huckabee why stopping radical Islam is imperative, particularly to the United States and for the security Israel.
Hirsi Ali also weighed in on the current Hamas-Israel conflict and explained why she thought it was important to side with Israel.
“I support Israel primarily because it is not only a democratic and free government in that region where there is a lack of that but Israel is based on a creed of life – life before death,” she said. “And they are facing enemies that want to annihilate not only Israel but eliminate all Jews. And the enemies of Israel believe in a creed of death. For them, life is transitional. And so the life of their own children, the life of their own mother and wives, the life of their fellow civilians – it doesn’t matter that much because they are looking forward to death so that after death something wonderful is going to happen. And people don’t see this basic difference. It is so important to see this. If you don’t see that, then you don’t understand the conflict. I vote for life, so I vote for Israel.”
Hirsi Ali also suggested that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu should be considered for the Nobel Peace Prize.
