„Ich habe den Koran studiert, aber eines Tages habe ich begonnen, selbst nachzudenken. Dabei habe ich erkannt: Es sind die Menschen, die Gott erschaffen haben, nicht umgekehrt. Dass der Koran dem Mann das Recht zugesteht, die Frau zu schlagen, das kann und darf nicht sein.“ Die Zeit, 23. Januar 2003 zeit. de


„Jedes Jahr wird an den Frauen ein Massenmord begangen - zwischen anderthalb und drei Millionen Frauen sterben jedes Jahr an den Folgen von Diskriminierung, Vernachlässigung oder Gewalt.“ Spiegel Online, 9. März 2006, spiegel. de

„Es ist für eine Frau zwischen 14 und 44 Jahren auf dieser Welt wahrscheinlicher, dass sie durch ihre eigene Familie ermordet wird, als dass sie an Malaria, an Krebs, im Krieg oder bei einem Autounfall umkommt.“ Spiegel Online, 9. März 2006, spiegel. de

„The only position that leaves me with no cognitive dissonance is atheism. It is not a creed. Death is certain, replacing both the siren-song of Paradise and the dread of Hell. Life on this earth, with all its mystery and beauty and pain, is then to be lived far more intensely: we stumble and get up, we are sad, confident, insecure, feel loneliness and joy and love. There is nothing more; but I want nothing more.“ Infidel

„Tolerance of intolerance is cowardice.“

„As a woman you are better off in life earning your own money. You couldn't prevent your husband from leaving you or taking another wife, but you could have some of your dignity if you didn't have to beg him for financial support.“ Infidel

„However, some things must be said, and there are times when silence becomes an accomplice to injustice.“


„There are times when silence becomes an accomplice to injustice.“ Infidel

„I would like to be judged on the validity of my arguments, not as a victim.“ Infidel

„Many well-meaning Dutch people have told me in all earnestness that nothing in Islamic culture incites abuse of women, that this is just a terrible misunderstanding. Men all over the world beat their women, I am constantly informed. In reality, these Westerners are the ones who misunderstand Islam. The Quaran mandates these punishments. It gives a legitimate basis for abuse, so that the perpetrators feel no shame and are not hounded by their conscience of their community. I wanted my art exhibit to make it difficult for people to look away from this problem. I wanted secular, non-Muslim people to stop kidding themselves that "Islam is peace and tolerance.“ Infidel

„Islam was like a mental cage. At first, when you open the door, the caged bird stays inside: it is frightened. It has internalized its imprisonment. It takes time for bird to escape, even after someone has opened the doors to its cage.“ Infidel


„I cannot emphasize enough how wrongheaded this is. Withholding criticism and ignoring differences are racism in its purest form. Yet these cultural experts fail to notice that, through their anxious avoidance of criticizing non-Western countries, they trap the people who represent these cultures in a state of backwardness. The experts may have the best of intentions, but as we all know, the road to hell is paved with good intentions.“ The Caged Virgin: An Emancipation Proclamation for Women and Islam

„By declaring our Prophet infallible and not permitting ourselves to question him, we Muslims had set up a static tyranny. The Prophet Muhammad attempted to legislate every aspect of life. By adhering to his rules of what is permitted and what is forbidden, we Muslims supressed the freedom to think for ourselves and to act as we chose. We froze the moral outlook of billions of people into the mind-set of the Arab desert in the seventh century. We were not just servants of Allah, we were slaves.“ Infidel

„In the real world, equal respect for all cultures doesn't translate into a rich mosaic of colorful and proud peoples interacting peacefully while maintaining a delightful diversity of food and craftwork. It translates into closed pockets of oppression, ignorance, and abuse.“ Nomad: From Islam to America: A Personal Journey Through the Clash of Civilizations

„Multiculturalism should not mean that we tolerate another culture’s intolerance. If we do in fact support diversity, women’s rights, and gay rights, then we cannot in good conscience give Islam a free pass on the grounds of multicultural sensitivity.“ Heretic: Why Islam Needs a Reformation Now
