The Fleeing Dutchmen

It appears the Dutch government (and I use the term "government" loosely here), rather than bolstering support for Dutch MP Ayaan Hirsi Ali, is running in fear of Muslim criminals threatening to murder Ms. Hirsi Ali.

If you're unfamiliar with the case, Ayaan Hirsi Ali is a Somali-born Dutch immigrant who's living in virtual seclusion after being marked for death by Dutch imams for speaking out against Islam's treatment of women. She worked with the late Theo Van Gogh on the movie Submission, which was highly critical of Islam. Van Gogh (yes, he was related to Vincent) was brutally murdered by a Muslim man who took offense to the film.

Now, Ms. Hirsi Ali has been evicted from her home, if you can believe it, because her neighbors felt inconvenienced by the security measures taken around her home for her protection.

Hot Air has all the details.
