Yvonne Ridley is a British journalist and author. She was captured by the Taliban in 2001, and after 11 days in captivity in Afghanistan she converted to Islam after having promised her captors that she would study Islam if they agreed to release her. She is a vocal supporter of the Palestinian cause, which she took up as a schoolgirl. She is an avid critic of Zionism and of Western media portrayals and foreign policy in the War on Terror, and has undertaken speaking tours throughout the Muslim world as well as America, Europe and Australia. She has been called «something close to a celebrity in the Islamic world» by the journalist Rachel Cooke, and in 2008 was voted the «most recognisable woman in the Islamic world» by Islam Online.
