Aggregating Skeptical Thought

The true meaning of Islam, Submission Part 1

Since I just posted on Ayaan Hirsi Ali’s book Infidel I thought I would provide a link to the short film that her and Theo van Gogh created, called Submission, Part I. It is a damning commentary on muslim attitudes towards women. The video was so inflammatory that it ended up getting Theo van Gogh killed.

If you read Infidel this short film will have so much more power for you. You will also have a better understanding why this film pissed off so many muslims (the truth hurts).

    How did Abraham get to heaven, since he lived and died before Jesus? What’s that? Direct revelation gives him a free ticket? Ok fine, how did Abe’s descendants get to heaven with Jebus? I assume you can’t use the direct revelation excuse for them?

    By they way, do I know you? Your picture looks familiar? I’ve probably come across your blog before I guess.

  6. […] to reinforce the point, but still. As a film, it’s more like a PowerPoint presentation. The Hirsi Ali/Van Gogh film, Submission Part 1, was much more artisticly […]
