Submission - Ayaan Hirsi Ali and The van Gogh

"Submission, Part I," a short critical film about the treatment of women in Islamic culture, was the product of a collaboration between the provocative Dutch film-maker Theo van Gogh and the Somali-born ex-Muslim, feminist activist, and Dutch Member of Parliament Ayaan Hirsi Ali. (Literally, "Islam" means "Submission.") Both received death threats for making the movie, and on November 2, 2004 van Gogh was murdered by a Dutch Muslim fanatic who then used the knife to pin a note with a manifesto and further death threats to van Gogh's body.
