Ayaan Hirsi Ali with Avi Lewis

(found at Cynical-C)

I loved Ali's parting comment to Avi:

"I have lived in countries with no democracy, I don't find myself with the same luxuries as you. You grew up in freedom and you can spit on freedom because you don't know what it is not to have freedom. I haven't. I know there are many things wrong with America, and many things wrong with Americans, but I still think it's the best nation in the world."
