3. Ayaan Hirsi Ali
Ali is an author, politician and activist, most famous for her book “Infidel,” which criticizes, among other things, the practice of female genital mutilation and Islam, in her native Somalia.
In light of the difficulties she’s had with the religion into which she was born, it is perhaps no wonder that since her immigration to the Netherlands, and then the United States, she has become a confirmed atheist.
However many people have noted that she has perhaps taken her atheism too far, calling for violent action against Islam, and supporting the violation of First Amendment rights to those who practice it.
