Theo Van Gogh was a Dutch film maker. He was the great grand son of Theo Van Gogh, the famous Paris art-dealer and the brother of painter Vincent Van Gogh. He made the news, for making a movie critical of some elements in the Islamic faith. The film"Submission" caused a lot of anger and frustration in the Muslim community in both Holland and overseas. The screenplay was penned by Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a member of the Dutch parliament and a former Muslim. She was under police protection.
Now, Ayaan Hirsi Ali moved to the U.S. because of death threats sent by Muslim extremists who can't stand freedom of speech. Theo Van Gogh was murdered by a Muslim extremist in November 2nd 2004. He was 47. This just shows that Islam is a religion that promotes violence and it cannot stant criticism. Theo Van Gogh was brutally murdered by Muhammad Bouyeri because he made a movie called "Submission". He said that Theo Van Gogh had to be killed for insulting Islam.
