In 21st century European news, Anti-immigration Dutch politician Pim Fortuyn has been shot dead.

In National Review’s “The Corner” Weblog, Rod Dreher writes:

this will be a bombshell to the Netherlands’ political world, which is benignly socialist. No word yet on who the attacker might have been, but if it turns out to have been one of Holland’s peace-loving Muslims, Fortuyn’s point about the need to stop accepting all these unassimilable immigrants will have been made far more forcefully than he ever could have hoped.
