Ayaan Hirsi Ali Security Trust

Posted on November 26, 2007. Filed under: Atheism | Tags: , , , , , , |

I received an email from Sam Harris today urging everybody to pledge money to help support Ayaan Hirsi Ali’s security detail. Due to the threat on her life, she has 24 hour a day guards and the cost is financially prohibitive. This is an important project to support in order to ensure the protection of the world’s most prominent opponent of Islamic fundamentalism. If you are unaware of her work, here is a video playlist of many of her public appearances.

Kudos to Sam Harris for setting this up and spreading the word about this inspiring woman. We’ll be making our donation soon. The important details are below as reposted from this page of Sam’s website:

URGENT APPEAL: Please Help Protect Ayaan Hirsi Ali

Thank you for your interest in helping Ayaan Hirsi Ali. If you would like more information about her, you can find it here. All contributions made below go directly to the Ayaan Hirsi Ali Security Trust. This private trust is dedicated to financing Ms. Hirsi Ali’s security and can accept donations both from within the United States and internationally. In the event that money remains after the costs of her security have been met, it will be used to encourage and protect other dissidents in the Muslim world. While one-time donations will be deeply appreciated, please consider setting up a monthly subscription on your credit card. A monthly subscription can allow anyone to make a meaningful contribution toward Ms. Hirsi Ali’s security without incurring great expense up front. Unfortunately, donations to the Ayaan Hirsi Ali Security Trust are not tax-deductible, as U.S. law does not currently allow for charitable contributions to be directed toward a single individual…click here to contribute
