In Memoriam: Theo Van Gogh
Robert Spencer's latest piece
at FrontPage Magazine tells the tale of the death of Theo Van Gogh:
Theo van Gogh was shot dead on an Amsterdam street on Tuesday morning. His assailant was a Dutch Moroccan who was wearing traditional Islamic clothing. After shooting van Gogh several times, he stabbed him repeatedly, slit his throat with a butcher knife, and left a note containing verses from the Qur’an on the body.
What crime did this man commit? What warranted such a bloody death?
Eight weeks ago, van Gogh’s film Submission aired on Dutch TV. The brainchild of an ex-Muslim member of the Dutch Parliament, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Submission decried the mistreatment of Muslim women — and even featured images of battered women wearing see-through robes that exposed their breasts, with verses from the Qur’an written on their bodies.
This makes me sick. It underscores the danger Islam represents to all civilized people.
