Theo Van Gogh, a Dutch filmmaker and relative of the Van Gogh, was killed today. He had made a film about Islamic violence against women which was declared blasphemy by Muslims. His next film was about anti-immigration politician Pim Fortuyn. Some reports say the attacker tried to cut off his head after he had been shot several times. This assassination was similar to some of the training I saw in the al Qaeda training tapes. The perp was caught after a shoot-out with the police.
College Republicans with a table in front of a student union building were attacked:
Derek Wray, President of the SFSU College Republicans, told Front Page Magazine that an angry mob of Palestinian students attacked the club’s table, as well as individual members of the Republican club who were handing out pro-Bush/Cheney campaign materials. According to Wray, campus police were nearby, but “just stood around watching and, instead of protecting the College Republican students from the mob that was pouring drinks on our table and materials, and even physically assaulting our members, only suggested that the campus Republicans leave rather than arrest those responsible for the violence.”
