Illustrations of the prophet Mohammad are appearing across the country. To many this isn’t much of a big deal…to Muslims it’s a VERY big deal.
We’ve seen terror attacks in Europe due to illustrations of Mohammad and Americans are starting to speak out by making their own and defending free speech.
Whether you think its insensitive or not – free speech is free speech.
The human rights advocacy group the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) has announced a new billboard campaign to defend freedom of speech and stand up to violent intimidation.
AFDI President Pamela Geller said in a statement: “Because the media and the cultural and political elites continue to self-enforce the Sharia without the consent of the American people by refusing to show any depictions of Muhammad or showing what it was in Texas that had jihadists opening fire, we are running a billboard ad featuring the winning cartoon by former Muslim Bosch Fawstin from our Muhammad Art Exhibit and Cartoon Contest in Garland, Texas.”
