LONDON, Nov. 2 — A Dutch filmmaker who outraged members of the Muslim community
with his attacks on the treatment of women in Islamic society was gunned down and stabbed
to death on an Amsterdam street Tuesday morning…”

    Yeah, I saw that article too. What was interesting to me is the filmmaker was characterized as right-wing. I mean, I would think if anyone would be outraged over the murder of someone critical of islam’s treatment of women, it would be the Left. Admittedly I don’t know enough about Dutch politics to draw any sort of conclusive opinion on what Left and Right means there.

    I’m always saying what the world needs is more people being gunned down.

    Anti-Islamists talking about women’s rights generally strikes me as a means to an end… I mean, I never heard anyone on the right who gave two shits about Afghan women under the Taliban until 9/11… but I guess that’s my cynicism showing.
