Dutch lawmaker Hirsi-Ali in hiding again after new death threat

Right-leaning Dutch politician Ayaan Hirsi-Ali is in hiding once again, after a threatening five-page letter was found with a knife stuck in the body of dead filmmaker Theo Van Gogh (great-grand nephew of Vincent Van Gogh) in Amsterdam last week.

"This is an open letter to the unbeliever fundamentalist Hirshi [sic] Ali, of the People's Party for Freedom and Democracy. Dear Ms. Hirshi [sic] Ali, Since your arrival in the political arena in the Netherlands you have been constantly busy terrorising Muslims and Islam with your statements. You are not the first and not the last who has joined the crusade against Islam."

"Death, Ms. Hirshi [sic] Ali, is the common theme of all that exists. You and the rest of the cosmos cannot escape this truth."

"There will come a day when one soul cannot help another soul. A day that goes paired with terrible tortures,…when the unjust will press horrible screams from their lungs. Screams, Ms. Hirshi [sic] Ali, that will cause chills to run down a person's back, and make the hairs on their heads stand straight up. People will be drunk with fear, while they are not drunken. Fear will fill the air on the Great Day."

"Ms. Hirshi [sic] Ali and the rest of the extremist unbelievers: Islam has withstood many enemies and repressions throughout history. Ayaan Hirshi [sic] Ali, you will break yourself to pieces on Islam!"

Hirsi-Ali, a former Muslim herself, has written a book critical of Islam. Her outspoken stance on Islam has caused a number of death threats against her over the past few years.
