True Muslims

A letter to the editor of the Toronto Star:

Liberated from Western shackles

I happen to be a practising Muslim woman who feels totally liberated from the shackles placed on Western women by the expectations of their societies or the "freedom" that their so-called democratic governments bestow on them. I feel no subservience to any man or his rules for I can only (as commanded by Islam) submit to my Creator — God the Almighty. Ayaan Hirsi Ali is an atheist, who in her distorted Islamic practices of the past still believes that "Muslims are locked in this mindset of submission, with women subordinate to man." What a fallacy!

Sounds like a Christian, no?
