"Face the Facts. Tell the Truth. Take Responsibility. Do What He Would Have Done"

Ten years after the assassination of Pim Fortuyn (where did the decade go?), Bruce Bawer, a former resident of the Netherlands (he now lives in Norway) pays tribute to dead politician, and advises the Dutch on the proper way to behave.

Update: Don't miss Jerry Gordon writing about Geert Wilders' new book in the New English Review:
Wilders' book has a foreword by Canadian-born commentator Mark Steyn, a kindred fighter for free speech, subjected to prosecution brought by Muslim complaints against Steyn by human rights councils in Canada. Both authors are leaders of a burgeoning movement in the West, in the courts and the public square, defending the right to criticize Islam. Wilders’ book is both a primer on the underlying totalitarian doctrine of Islam and a personal chronicle. It illustrates his endeavors over the past decade to alert the West to the tsunami of Islamic hatred of freedom and liberty. A tsunami on the verge of engulfing his native Holland and other European countries, turning them into what Bat Ye’or has called Eurabia.
