  • BOOK REVIEW: 'Marked for Death'

    Dutch parliamentarian Geert Wilders has strong views on Islam and its growing influence in the West. In "Marked for Death," he has penned a powerful book about his political odyssey in the Netherlands, where his Party for Freedom is the third-largest. His book places his personal saga in the context of broader events involving the political ideology of Islam.

    WILDERS: Resisting threat of fanatical Islam

    As I write these lines, there are police bodyguards at the door. No visitor can enter my office without passing through several security checks and metal detectors. I have been marked for death. I am forced to live in a heavily protected safe house.


  • BOOK REVIEW: 'Wanted Women'

    "Wanted Women: Faith, Lies, and the War on Terror: The Lives of Ayaan Hirsi Ali and Aafia Siddiqui" is a good book. Or rather, two. Deborah Scroggins takes Ayaan Hirsi Ali, the critic of Islam and former Dutch parliamentarian, down a few pegs.


  • BOOK REVIEW: 'Leaving Van Gogh'

    While Carol Wallace was researching her masters thesis in art history in 2005, she came across the name of Dr. Paul Gachet, a French physician who specialized in diseases of the nerves and mental illnesses at the end of the 19th century. One of his patients was the painter, Vincent Van Gogh.


  • Support free speech in the Netherlands

    I was surprised to see your Friday article "Free speech on trial in the Netherlands" (Commentary) appearing in an American newspaper. After all, the Netherlands is a small country, even though the Dutch don't think that of themselves. Holland gave birth to at least five international concerns, such as Royal Dutch Shell and Unilever, once ruled the seas and managed large colonial possessions.


  • Islamofascism in the Netherlands

    Last week, the Dutch police raided the home of Gregorius Nekschot (a pseudonym meaning "Gregory Deathblow"). Mr. Nekschot makes rude and often sexually explicit cartoons that poke fun at the multicultural society and at religious people, especially Muslims. The police confiscated his computer and a number of drawings. The cartoonist was also arrested and jailed for 36 hours but has been released until his court case is due.

    Conducting an interview with an iconic celebrity can be unnerving at the best of times.
