Documentary maker killed for his film 'Submission' - exposing violence against women in Islamic Societies

BBC NEWS | World | Europe | Gunman kills Dutch film director

The war, the 'clash of cultures' continues around the globe. Islam versus the west. Here a dutch director who filmed an expose with political activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali - herself under death threats since escaping an arranged marriage and working with this film was assassinated. If you read the BBC article, the film, which told the truth, in nonetheless 'controversial' because apparently the truth is insulting to islamic culture. Last I heard Salman Rushdie was still condemned to death by various Ayatollah types as well. The lesson is to keep your mouth shut and for heavens sake, don't tell the truth. And don't mention heaven if it isn't the authorized version.
