Hope for Islam

Very well informed. Both ladies start with similar backrounds take different paths and end up in similar positions. Pleasant and exciting speakers. Also humorous. Shows how politics and agendas have tainted a religion. HIGHLY RECCOMEND!

Commendable Women!

If more Muslims and ex-Muslims communicated with these women's verve and urgency, it would be a better world. I particularly like the intimate confession of Ayaan Hirsi Ali's moral support of Irshad Manji as a Muslim, though she herself cannot place a faith in Islam.
