Ayaan Hirsi Ali, the ex-Muslim author of Infidel, may not have security for much longer.
She constantly faces threats on her life and is in danger without the protection.
There is an online petition for this matter, but those things are usually ineffective…
Better yet, there are two ways you can directly help Ms. Ali through the American Enterprise Institute, where she serves as a fellow (via email):
(1) The Ayaan Hirsi Ali Security Trust––a private trust fund that will be entirely dedicated to financing Ayaan’s security. This fund is able to begin accepting donations immediately. Check donations can be made out to the name of the trust, and sent to my attention at the American Enterprise Institute, 1150 Seventeenth St., N.W., Washington, DC. (Please note that this fund can only accept money from within the United States, and that donations to this fund will not be tax deductible.)
(2) A public U.S. charity (501(c)(3)) that will support Muslim dissidents around the world and, among other things, provide financial support for their security––including Ayaan’s. As we are still in the process of establishing this charity, tax deductible donations to it can, for the time being, be made out to American Enterprise Institute and mailed to the attention of Christopher DeMuth, president of AEI, with a cover letter stating the purpose of the donation. (Please note that this fund can also only accept money from within the United States.)
Thank you again for your support. Please don’t hesitate to email or call if you have any questions.

You can watch a video of Ms. Ali speaking here and decide if this is a cause worth contributing to… I think you’ll find it an easy decision to make.
