Here Hirsi Ali attributes the attitudes of some Muslims to Islam itself. But we can hardly credit to Islam everything that Muslims do. Yet this is a mistake Hirsi Ali makes throughout her book. For example, when in a Muslim majority nation many women were raped, Hirsi Ali blamed this on Islam (p. 146). Thus she failed to see that in a case like this the fault is not with the faith, which forbids rape, but with the rapists for failing to follow the faith.
