AMSTERDAM  - What should a Muslim do to someone who insults Islam? Behead them. What should he do to someone who insults the prophet? Mohammed B.: "Off with their head. Slaughter them." Two and a half years in a high security prison has done little to make the convictions of Theo van Gogh's killer any less extreme.

B. appeared in court again today as a witness in the appeal case against seven members of the Hofstad group. The court questioned B. extensively about his faith. B. reiterated the radical views he voiced while on trial for Van Gogh's killing.

B. continues to justify his actions calling himself a warrior for Allah. B. says Van Gogh insulted the prophet and therefore had to die. B. did not wish to repeat how the filmmaker had insulted Mohammed. When asked whether there were other motives, B. hesitated. "That is a difficult question. At a moment like that different thoughts run through your head. Which ones are yours and which aren't? Only Allah knows that. Only Allah knows what goes on in your heart."

B. said he has found support for his radical ideas in books he borrows from the library at the high security prison in Vught. By making such books available the justice department is partially responsible for prisoners becoming radical Muslims, B. suggested.
