More Muhammad Cartoon and Drawing Exhibitions Planned
A freedom movement is underway. I am glad of it. Muhammad Cartoon exhibits are now being planned for Denmark and Holland.
Geert Wilders, our keynote speaker at the AFDI free speech event in Garland, Texas, has asked his parliament to stage an exhibition of the Mohammed cartoons from the event.
And Anders Gravers, our colleague and SION board member, plans on showing the Mohammed drawings at the political festival on the island of Bornholm next month.
There are many of us who won’t be cowed, won’t submit and won’t abridge our freedoms so as not to offend savages. Freedom of speech is not negotiable in a free society.
We will not adhere to the sharia (Islamic law). Ever.

Next month’s political festival on the island of Bornholm has already attracted Islam critics and nationalists – now it will also include the Mohammed drawings that were the target of a shooting in the US earlier this month.
After the uproar surrounding the invitation to Dutch politician and prominent Islam critic Geert Wilders, it was announced that a host of European nationalists will attend at the invitation of the far-right Danes’ Party (Danskernes Parti).
On Tuesday, the anti-Islam groups Stop the Islamization of Denmark (Stop Islamiseringen af Danmark – SIAD) and Frit Danmark said that they would also be at Folkemødet next month and that they would be bringing drawings of the prophet Mohammed with them.
“We are doing it for free speech, which is under attack by jihadists and because you cannot have degrees of free speech,” SIAD’s chairman, Anders Gravers Pedersen, said in a press release. More
