Dutch police erase "inflammatory" mural

I can't quite believe this: a Dutch artist decided to memorialise filmmaker Theo Van Gogh, murdered by an Islamic fundamentalist, with a mural on the wall outside his studio, depicting an angel and the words "Thou shalt not kill". It seems that someone connected with a nearby mosque deemed the work "inflammatory" and called the police.

The police erased the mural!

Words just fail me.

I'm possibly the most cynical man on the planet, but even I'm amazed by that.
