People still talk about the time freedom fighter Ayaan Hirsi Ali crushed insufferable leftist TV host Avi Lewis on a Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) broadcast. In case you’ve forgotten (or just want to relive the thrill), here’s a taste:

Then Lewis asked Hirsi Ali for her “critique against Islam.” Ali, the epitome of poised, calmly responded that “Islam means submission to the will of Allah. A doctrine that requires the individual to become a slave is, in my view, is bad.”

“But aren’t there different kinds of Islam, just as there are different interpretations of Christianity and Judaism?” Lewis asked.

“No,” his guest replied.

Here Lewis began to unravel. Hirsi Ali’s calm, cool demeanor actually seemed to agitate him as much as her answers.

That infamous segment more or less served as Avi Lewis’ al-Jazeera audition tape, as it turns out. Good riddance.

Unbowed, the CBC shoved another one of its employees into Hirsi Ali’s path recently, with predictable results. Jian Ghomesh  earns his living (thanks to my tax dollars) hosting something called “Q TV”. He recently sat down with Ali and lasted, barely, an admirable 40 minutes.

There’s nothing I can possibly add to this. Enjoy:
