Gunman kills Dutch film director
Dutch film maker Theo van Gogh, who made a controversial film about Islamic culture, has been stabbed and shot dead in Amsterdam, Dutch police say.
Police arrested a man in a nearby park after an exchange of gunfire.

Van Gogh, 47, had received death threats after his film Submission, on violence against women in Islamic societies, was shown on Dutch TV.

The film was made with liberal Dutch politician Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a Somali refugee who fled an arranged marriage.

Ayaan Hirsi Ali has been under police protection since the film was aired. She has also received death threats and has renounced the Islamic faith.


Van Gogh's production company told the Dutch news agency ANP that he had been shot dead.
Both the suspect and a policeman suffered bullet wounds and are now in hospital.

The file downloads as something called "streams.ram". How do you play it?

If it's a .ram file, you need RealPlayer.

It also says that the file size is only 101 bytes, when I save it, almost like it's only a link even though "save" was an option when I clicked it.

Apparently it's a streaming video. You can't save it, you can only view. (To save, you would have to do a video capture while viewing it)

Q, regarding all those Arabs that have been arrested, make sure you guys don't violate their civil rights or violate the Geneva Convention or put panties on their heads.

If you do, we will try you in the World Court.

Well, you can put panties on their heads. Just don't try anything else, OR ELSE!
