Nov 2, 2004: Dutch filmmaker Theo van Gogh killed by Muslim over film (video)

November 2, 2004.

And the short-film Submission .

The screenplay Submission, written by Ayaan Hirsi Ali and produced by Theo van Gogh, includes quotes from the Quran written in Arabic on a womans body. For his part in Submission, van Gogh was slaughtered by a Muslim in broad daylight on an Amsterdam street, his throat slit with a butchers knife, and a five-page letter stabbed to his chest with another knife. He was also shot. The letter warned Ali that she would be next. More here.

  1. Thank you for this tribute to Theo van Gogh.

    Thank you for stating that islam is the problem, and sharia is the problem and muslims who commit acts of violence in the name of allah and the koran are the problem.

    Self-defense is granted to us, do not squander it. Learn more. Act Now.

    Wake Up to the Threat of Islam.

  2. […] DARE NOT FORGET 5 YEARS AGO, Dutch filmmaker Theo van Gogh killed by Muslim over film …. […]

  3. Writers, filmmakers, cartoonists, bloggers… is any free speaker safe?

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
