Filmmakers murdered In Holland

From Reuters:
"A controversial Dutch filmmaker who outraged Muslims by branding imams women-haters has been stabbed and shot dead in Amsterdam, shocking the Netherlands where the killing was denounced as an attack on free speech.

Theo van Gogh, a distant relative of 19th century Dutch painter Vincent van Gogh, sparked controversy with newspaper articles, books and films dealing with Islam after the September 11 attacks on the United States"
From some reason, which I can't put my finger, "denounced as an attack on free speech" doesn't quite do this justice. May van Gogh rest in peace. The one murderer caught so far will not get the justice he deserves in the Netherlands.
