Submission: Part 2

At last! The news we long waited to hear: next year, Hirsi Ali will start filming Submission Part 2 – with the support of the American Enterprise Institute.

The identities of her collaborators on Submission: Part 2 will remain anonymous.

"After Van Gogh's death, I've learned a lesson, and that is, you have to make a film without putting the identity of the people out there. You have to be smarter than the killers."

I am certain Muhammad hopefuls are swamping her. I wonder if any of Hollywood’s actors would have the gall to play the part…
