Dutch filmmaker Theo van Gogh, distant relative of 19th century painter Vincent van Gogh, received a belly full of Islamic peace and love yesterday when he was brutally murdered on the streets of Amsterdam. Shot and stabbed in broad daylight at the front door of the city council office, 47 year-old van Gogh managed to flee to the other side of the street, where he was shot and stabbed again, and died.

Van Gogh’s assailant, a 26-year-old man with dual Dutch and Moroccan citizenship, has been linked to an organization of Islamic terrorists recruiting youth in the Netherlands. The murder is thought to be in retaliation for van Gogh’s recent anti-Islamic film, entitled “Submission,” in which a Muslim woman is forced into a violent arranged marriage, raped by a relative, and punished for adultery.

And so, to protest the film’s depiction of Islam as a violent, cruel, anti-human religion, angry Muslims shot and stabbed the director. Point made.
