Our contributor Paul Belien notes in his Brussels Journal that Chokri Ben Chikha, a Tunisian-descended artist in Flanders, is receiving a subsidy from the Belgian Ministry of Culture for his play "Our Lady of Flanders", which attacks anti-immigrant discrimination and is being advertized with a poster featuring a bare-breasted Madonna. Last year, as Belien reported for us, Theo van Gogh was murdered by a Muslim "Dutchman" for making a film featuring abused Muslim women with Koranic verses on their naked backs. (Fairly discreetly, judging by Belien's picture).

Money vs. murder - that's an incentive structure that sends a message!
