Murder of Theo van Gogh by Muslim extremist

De Telegraaf draws a link between the murders of Pim Fortuyn and, this morning in Amsterdam, of Dutch polemicist and director, Theo van Gogh: their deaths are separated by 911 days, as were New York and Madrid. He was shot and stabbed to death by a man with double Moroccan and Dutch nationality, an associate of Samir A, who was arrested in June for planning a terrorist attack. There’s little doubt that van Gogh’s crimes were to have drawn attention to Muslim extremism in Holland and the short he recently made with Hirsi Ali, of whom more here.

Everyone seems clear that it is an attack on democracy and an attempt to cause an explosion between the Moroccan and Dutch right in the slums of places like The Hague. Worse than that, it is an attack on all men who like wearing women’s underwear on their heads: check Mr van Gogh’s site, The Healthy Smoker.

(I love the BBC front page headline:

Director mourned
Controversial career of Dutch filmmaker Theo Van Gogh.

Something missing there.)
