Dutch Islamic theocracy?

The man who murdered Theo van Gogh had a frightening dream for the future of the Netherlands:

The man accused of murdering filmmaker Theo van Gogh on Nov. 2 dreamed of replacing the Dutch government with an Islamic theocracy, and was supported by a network of like-minded fanatics, prosecutors said yesterday at his first public hearing.

The suspect, Amsterdam native Mohammed Bouyeri, 26, did not appear at the pretrial hearing, but his lawyer said Mr. Bouyeri wants to "be held accountable for his actions" and sees them as part of a religious war.
