More on Theo Van Gogh

"An interesting report has just been translated into English (from Dutch) and published on the Web. It gives a very detailed account about the way in which Dutch Muslim fundamentalists discussed and planned actions on the Internet, before, during and after November 2, 2004, the day that Dutch film maker Theo van Gogh was killed in Amsterdam. The report is written by Albert Benschop, an Internet sociologist who is teaching new media at the Unversity of Amsterdam (UvA) and the Hogeschool van Amsterdam (HvA).
