The film that got Van Gogh killed

Remember Theo Van Gough? He was the man murdered by a Muslim fanatic for making a film, and today is the fifth anniversary of that act.

It’s called Submission and it deals with violence against women in Islamic societies, telling the stories of four abused Muslim women. The title Submission is a translation of the word “Islam” into English.

Here’s the film that got Van Gogh murdered by a religious nutcase. Of course, it would not now be on blogs all over the place were it not for that single act. Once again, the would-be censors – seeking to censor in this case with a knife – ensure that more people see the “offending” material. It’s just a pity someone had to die for it.
