An engrossing look at women and Islam finds parallels between a bestselling author and a convicted terrorist

Ayaan%20Hirsi%20Ali%20and%20Aafia%20Siddiqui

Ayaan Hirsi Ali and Aafia Siddiqui  

Deborah Scroggins’ engrossing new book, http://click.linksynergy.com/deeplink?mid=36889&id=FYUtulI7nw4&murl=http%3A%2F%2Fsearch.barnesandnoble.com%2Fbooksearch%2FISBNInquiry.asp%3FEAN%3D9780060898977%26 - “Wanted Women: Faith, Lies, and the War on Terror: The Lives of Ayaan Hirsi Ali and Aafia Siddiqui,” is the story of a martyr and a she-devil. Or the story of a she-devil and a martyr, depending on your perspective. However, the author (a prizewinning international journalist) subscribes to neither view. By juxtaposing the lives of two (in)famous women involved with the so-called War on Terror — a celebrated critic of Islam and the only woman included on the FBI’s most-wanted list of al Qaida-linked international terrorists — Scroggins aims to show how “women like Ayaan and Aafia became symbols in battles that were really about other things.”
