Submission: The Movie

Submission is a 10-minute film in English directed by Theo van Gogh and written by Ayaan Hirsi Ali (a former Liberal party member of the Lower House of the Netherlands Parliament); it was shown on the Dutch public broadcasting network (VPRO) on August 29, 2004. The film’s title is a direct translation of the word “Islam” (see also the etymology and meaning of the word).

On November 2, 2004, Theo van Gogh was assassinated in public by Mohammed Bouyeri. A letter[12], stabbed through and affixed to the body by a dagger, linked the murder to Van Gogh’s film and his views regarding Islam. It was addressed to Ayaan Hirsi Ali, and called for jihad against kafir (kafir is an Arabic word for unbeliever, a person who hides, denies, or covers the truth), and so, against America, Europe, the Netherlands, and Hirsi Ali herself. Following the murder of van Gogh, there were fire-bombings of mosques and Muslim schools, and counterattacks against Christian churches. Besides Bouyeri, eleven other Muslim men were arrested and charged with conspiracy to assassinate Hirsi Ali.[13]

After the murder of Theo van Gogh, Submission gained international fame. It was withdrawn from a film festival in Rotterdam, but was shown on television in a number of European countries.[14]

“Virtual Insanity”

That's not nature's way Well that's what they said yesterday There's nothing left to do but pray I think it's time I found a new religion Waoh - it's so insane To synthesize another strain There's something in these Futures that we have to be told. JAMIROQUAI
