A Dutch court on Tuesday rejected a bid by a Muslim association to prevent the making of a sequel to the film "Submission," which led to its maker Theo van Gogh being murdered in Amsterdam by an alleged Islamic extremist. The court ruled that member of parliament Ayaan Hirsi Ali, who is proposing to make the sequel, could go ahead, and it also refused to bar her from making further statements deemed offensive to Muslims.
Hirsi Ali, who wrote the scenario for "Submission," had to go into hiding after the killing of van Gogh last November, and she then announced that she was working on a sequel. The ANP news agency said the court judge ruled that although Hirsi Ali "went to the limits of what is tolerable," there were not for the moment sufficient reasons to prevent her making a sequel to the film. Van Gogh was shot and stabbed while cycling in Amsterdam last November. Police allege the suspect is an Islamic extremist who killed the director because of his strongly critical stance on Islam and women.
However, according to Dutch Report, the judge also recommended Hirsi Ali not to call Muhammad a pedophile:
But amazingly the judge also warned Hirsi Ali to be careful when she does statements about the prophet. Hirsi Ali had in a newspaper interview said that according to our current norms and values the prophet was a "perverse tyrant" and a "pedophile". Judge Paris questions, "if it was needed to use these words".
"It looks like if [Hirsi Ali] with the use of these words has sought the limits of the permissible. The term pedophile has been chosen unfortunate because for that there would be the need of a pattern, although it is in the story a one time event". Judge Paris said that she did not break the law when she said it, but that would be questionable if she would repeat saying it. The lawyer of the Muslims says that she has been warned and that she received a red ticket. But Hirsi Ali, later said on Radio 1 that the Dutch language is a rich language and she will find other words.
Not a pedophile, eh? What else do you call a 54 year old man who has sex with a 9 year old child?
Aisha the Child Wife of Muhammad
Sahih Bukhari Volume 7, Book 62, Number 64
that the Prophet married her when she was six years old and he consummated his marriage when she was nine years old, and then she remained with him for nine years (i.e., till his death).
