After last week’s bloody and violent protests across the Middle East Ayaan Hirsi Ali writes our cover story on her optimism in the wake of religious chaos; “Yes…this is a setback for the Arab Spring. Yes, it is bloody, dangerous, and chaotic on the streets. But this too shall pass.”
In glorious print at the newsstand Monday or with bells and whistles in the app store today; http://bit.ly/b4mv6q

You cannot be serious, Newsweek. After this inaccurate, exaggerated article which was thoroughly decimated by Anthony Alessandrini here who summed up her entire career:

Hirsi Ali, like Ferguson and the rest of the neo-con forces, is eager to wrap herself in the mantle of “Western” virtues such as skepticism and secularism, against the forces of sectarianism and fundamentalism that they see as constitutive of the “Muslim world.” But what could possibly be more sectarian and fundamentalist than Hirsi Ali’s vision of the world, with its terrifying simplifications and generalizations, and its reduction of genuine situations of violence and suffering to data whose only purpose is to power her relentless Islamophobia machine?

Yet you continue to give her the cover story?

This is awkward, Newsweek.
