I delivered a brief lecture at Ayaan Hirsi Ali's annual conference where I met some of my favorite people. Daniel Pipes dropped in on his way to the airport. My dear friend, Raquel Evita Saraswati, was there as well. The Canadian Prosecutor in the high profile Shafia case, Gerard Laarhuis, spoke at length about the case and shared many compelling details with us all. I was very happy to finally meet Detective Chris Boughey from Arizona who had already shared important information with me about the Noor Al-Maleki case. Det. Boughey and Jeffrey Balson of Arizona's Violent Crimes Unit, as well as Professor Ric Curtis of John Jay, all addressed the issue of forced marriage. Archana Pyati addressed the issue of Female Genital Mutilation in the U.S.A. and confirmed that the largest number of cases in the States are right here in New York.
