Sakset/Fra hofta

Ayaan Hirsi Ali er kommet tilbake til Nederland fordi den nederlandske staten ikke ville betale for mer enn ett års vakthold overseas. Hun er heller ikke USAs ansvar siden hun ikke er amerikansk borger.

Derfor er hun nå tilbake, uten livvakter. Hvor mye er Ayaans liv verdt, spør Leon de Winter i spiegel.online. Han syntes det er skammelig at man skal behøve å krangle om det. For at hennes liv er i fare uten livvakter, synes ubestridelig.

There are exactly five people that the Dutch government has to protect against death threats from radical Islamists.

This sort of protection is expensive. Society bears the costs because freedom of opinion, a cornerstone of our culture, is on the line. The extremists, for their part, are prepared to risk their own lives to kill those under government protection.

The costs of protection are completely disproportionate to the outcome: the continued existence of our values and norms.
