Ask an expert

When Joe Biden met Ayaan Hirsi Ali:
In her speech to the dinner guests in Washington, Hirsi Ali recalled meeting Vice President Joe Biden. He informed her that “ISIS had nothing to do with Islam.” When she disagreed with him, Biden actually responded: “Let me tell you one or two things about Islam.”

“I politely left the conversation at that,” Hirsi Ali said, to laughter. “I wasn’t used to arguing with vice presidents.”
No word on what Neil Kinnock thinks.

I would not have been so polite, and suffice it to say that if I had gone through what Ms. Ali went through, the beeper would have been used on the evening news if they'd chosen to carry it.

I try not to use Anglo-Saxon verbiage, but if some....recti had chosen to mutilate my private parts, and someone was trying to pretend it had nothing to do with Islam, I think it's healthy to let them know they're inundated with excrement in no uncertain terms.

(if Congress would start chanting "male bovine scat" during SOTU speeches, it would be wonderful for the same reason)

Hate to break this to you, but if you are circumcised, and most post WW2 U.S. males are, then some...recti? did choose to mutilate your private parts.

Just saying;)

gentital mutilation for girls has nothing to do with islam. it is a cultural aspect in many parts of the world where islam dominates, but is also a practice where islam does not, as well.

its about as islamic as the shotgun wedding is to Christianity, or honor killings that used to take place in south euro cultures.

Ayaan Hirsi Ali's brief against Islam goes beyond whatever happened to her nether regions. The point of the anecdote is that Joe Biden is in no position to lecture her on the meaning of her own experiences.

Anon, let's just say that what Ms. Ali went through--common throughout Africa--removes a lot more nerve endings than what most Americans go through.

And if the bulk of Islam stood up against this--just as if the bulk of Islam stood up against terrorism--it would end. And quickly. Which is another reason Biden, like most Democrats, gets a virtual colonoscopy. The prep for the real thing would leave nothing left over.
