Anti-Islam campaigner Ayaan Hirsi Ali, who now works for a US think-tank, would consider returning to the Netherlands if she could continue with her international career, the former MP tells Monday’s Pers newspaper.
The Dutch government has stopped funding Hirsi Ali’s security now she has permanent residence in the US and she is now trying to raise the money privately.
On Saturday Labour party MP Jeroen Dijsselbloem called on Hirsi Ali to return to the Netherlands, because her security bill will be paid.
Hirsi Ali told De Pers his proposal was ‘fantastic’. If the MP is serious, he should ask justice minister Ernst Hirsch Ballin if he is prepared to pay for her housing and ‘the expensive and complicated’ procedures allowing her to travel abroad, she said.
