Sanity in Texas: "Muhammad Art Contest"

It seems that the followers of the "religion of peace" aren't making much progress in their efforts to enforce worldwide reverence for their demon-possessed "prophet" Muhammad.  In 2006, after worldwide riots followed the publication of some cartoons in a Danish newspaper, sensible people around the world scoffed, and continued to satirize Muhammad whenever they felt like it, sometimes being killed in the process.  ("Sensible people," of course, did not and do not include the members of the mainstream media, which continued to censor images of the bedraggled pedophile, out of simple cowardice.) By 2010, an enterprising woman in Seattle, Washington started the yearly celebration "Everybody Draw Muhammad Day."  And now, in the wake of the Muslim attack on the Charlie Hebdo offices in Paris, something even better is happening.

Pamela Gellar, who is internationally known as one of the fiercest and most serious opponents of Mohammedanism, having founded the American Freedom Defense Initiative, is planning the 2015 "Muhammad Art Exhibit and Contest." This event is delicious for two reasons.  First of all, Pamela Gellar, contrary to the claims of her enemies, is not an ignorant, hate-filled Muslim-basher.  In point of fact, the editor of Atlas Shrugs is a very sophisticated, cosmopolitan New Yorker, Jewish by background, whose main concern is liberty: she simply perceives, rightly, that Islam is the greatest threat to liberty in the world today.  (If the Boy Scouts were the greatest threat to liberty, she'd be going after them.)  Secondly, the event will be held at the Curtis Culwell Center in Garland, Texas: the same venue that recently witnessed a Muslim-held "anti-Islamophobia" rally, after the French massacre. The Mohammedans sought to attack their enemies (in a legal manner, for once) in Texas; and Ms. Gellar is striking back, on the very same ground.

“This event will stand for free speech and show that Americans will not be cowed by violent Islamic intimidation,” Ms. Gellar says. “That is a crucial stand to take as Islamic assaults on the freedom of speech, our most fundamental freedom, are growing more insistent ... Of course, this event will require massive security. But this exhibit has to be staged. If we don’t show the jihadis that they will not frighten us into silence, the jihad against freedom will only grow more virulent.” Amen.

For those too young to recognize it, the poster advertising the exhibition is a brilliant parody of the famous self-portrait of the American artist Norman Rockwell, seen below.  This event isn't a fundamentalist Christian burning a Koran in a trash bin: this is a classy operation!
