The problem of Pim Fortuyn

Reader comment on item: Ban Islam?

Submitted by Harrak (Canada), Aug 29, 2007 at 18:56

"Pim Fortuyn was assassinated during the 2002 Dutch national election campaign by animal rights activist Volkert van der Graaf, who confessed in court to murdering Fortuyn to stop him from targeting "the weak parts of society to score points in seeking political power."

So he was not killed by Muslims.

He had a maturity and identity problem and lived in all kind s of contradictions. "one day describing himself as Catholic, sometimes openly gay, some times comaring his political thoughts with Berluscuni's centre right and other times to Joop den Uyl in the left."

If one does can not identify himself correctly in the society he lives in, how can he identify the problem of others? Too bad he was killed, but flip flop people like him would not surprise me if at the end of their career decide to convert to Islam.
