"SUBMISSION"
The note left by Bouyeri also threatened Western countries and Jews.
For a translated text of the note, visit: http://www.militantislammonitor.org/article/id/312
"Submission: PArt 1" portrays a Muslim woman Who is forced into an arranged marriage, abused by her husband, raped by her uncle and then brutally punished for adultery. Her body, visible through transparent garments, shows painted verses from the Koran. Some argue that these are four different characters performed by the same actress.

Bouyeri had been seen following van Gogh on his route to work for many weeks before the murder.
The Hofstad Network is a militant Islamic group that targeted van Gogh, Hirsi Ali, and many other critics of Islam. Mohammed Bouyeri was a member of this group who would go on to assassinate van Gogh.
