Subject:  so sad
Message:  I'm sad because a couple of days back a very well known Dutch artist, film director and producer, Theo van Gogh was murderded by a Moslim extremist.
Theo van Gogh (yes he was related to Vincent) was shot several time while riding his bike. When staggering through the street he was shot a couple of times more. The extremist then cut his throat and pinning a letter to the body he stabbed a knife through Theo's cheast.
Theo van Gogh was a man who critizised and insulted a lot of people. But he always could get away with it.
Recently he'd made a picture about the oppression and ill-treatment of moslim-women in their culture. In the film he showed naked bodies of beaten women, their bodies covered with lyrics from the Koran.
Last tuesday he was killed for that. The letter on his cheast accused him of blasphemy and called for a Jihad.
I'm so afraid of the world my little girls grow up in.
