Good On Them

According to the Melon Farmers, the Italian television station RAI are going to show the Theo Van Gogh film Submission at eleven o'clock Italian time tonight. This was, of course, the film that got Van Gogh assassinated.

Good on them - debate about the murder has been hampered across Europe simply because so few people have seen the film. I, myself, haven't seen it, but I would love to do so. To quote the link:

'As always, the most aggressive and intolerant threats are generated by those proclaiming a tolerant religion.'

They're right - about all religions. Tolerance amongst the very religious seems to me to mostly extend to those who share the same opinions.

Ayaan Hirsi Ali, the brave woman who wrote the film, has a weblog here. The film itself is online here. Watch it.
