Submission, Part I - Film Clip from short Submission

Posted on: February 2, 2005 | Views: 364 | Comment

On November 2 2004, Theo van Gogh was brutally murdered on the street in reaction to his film, "Submission," which criticizes the treatment of women under Islam. The slain filmmaker, a descendent of Dutch painter Vincent van Gogh, was a provocative media trickster, courting controversy during his entire career. Some called him a champion of free speech. Others, referencing inflammatory terms such as "goat-fuckers" (his preferred moniker for Muslim immigrants), found his irreverence for all things religious to be utterly repellent.

Van Gogh's killer was in that camp. Islamic Extremist Mohamed Bouyeri, a Dutch National of Moroccan descent, shot and stabbed van Gogh repeatedly, even as van Gogh pleaded for mercy. He pinned a note to his body addressed to writer Ayaan Hirsi Ali. It said that she would be destroyed, along with Holland and the United States.

Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a Somali-born member of the Dutch parliament, is a self-proclaimed ex-Muslim. She escaped to the Netherlands in 1992 to avoid an arranged marriage. At age five she had undergone the ordeal of female genital mutilation, a custom still practiced in many Muslim communities. This and other grievances with Islamic practice lead her to reject her faith and seek to aid other women oppressed by outmoded tradition. Despite the threat to her own life, Ms. Hirsi Ali refuses to back down on what she calls her Islam Reform Project (IRP). "I am on a mission. And it has only just begun."
