A leading Dutch Muslim politician [Ayaan Hirsi Ali], who received death threats after criticising Islamic attitudes to women, took her seat in parliament again yesterday after more than two months in hiding.
She said yesterday she intended to publish a second volume of her controversial book Submission, which was the basis of the film.
She arrived at parliament in an armoured Mercedes limousine and was followed by police bodyguards to the doors of the parliamentary chamber as MPs banged their desks in support and onlookers applauded.
Later she called on 2_kommentarstream Muslims to speak out against violence.
“I’m not out to offend people who hold different opinions but that’s difficult to avoid sometimes because the debate over Islam concerns ancient texts and deep convictions,” she said.
