In what seems to be the last straw for courageous Ayaan Hirsi Ali, the Dutch Immigration Minister has now revoked her passport, following which Ali has resigned her seat in parliament and suggested it's time to move to the States.
US Assistant Secretary of State Robert Zoellick said she's welcome any time. As Andrei says at Sir Humphrey's, "Holland's loss will be America's gain." Sure will.
Which raises two questions, the first both asked and answered by the Washington Post: "Is it possible to condemn Muslim extremism and still live among the Dutch? Maybe not."
And here's my question for Americans: Why doesn't the US treat all prospective immigrants with such warmth?
