Murder Over Book

The murder of Theo Van Gogh (a distant relative of the Master) by a Dutch-Moroccan youth yesterday made headlines, and most cited the controversial movie the victim had made last year. But the reason (if there can ever be one for such a disgusting, gruesome act) may be a book, titled Allah Knows Better, in which Van Gogh accused clerics of hating women. Until people learn to respect other people’s opinions, however incendiary they may seem, there is no hope for peace.
