al-Awlaki calls for execution of Everybody Draw Mohammed Day cartoonist

From the New York Daily News:

A charismatic terror leader linked to the botched Times Square car bomb has placed the Seattle cartoonist who launched “Everybody Draw Mohammed Day” on an execution hitlist.

The Yemeni-American cleric Anwar al-Awlaki – the radical who’s also been cited as inspiring the Fort Hood, Tex., massacre and the plot by two New Jersey men to kill U.S. soldiers – singled out artist Molly Norris as a “prime target,” saying her “proper abode is Hellfire.

Well guess what?  The U.S. government has authorized the targeted killing of Awlaki.  Now would be nice.

Backstory here.

Muslim Clerics React To Everybody Draw Mohammed Day

Really, I don’t think there’s any more to add to that.

Facebook responds to Pakistan

It’s the equivalent of “I’ll see your fifty and raise you a hundred.”

A company spokeswoman told FoxNews.com on Wednesday that Facebook was “disappointed” by a Pakistani court’s decision to block some of the pages.

“We are very disappointed with the Pakistani Courts’ decision to block Facebook without warning, and suspect our users there feel the same way,” the statement read. “We are analyzing the situation and the legal considerations, and will take appropriate action, which may include making this content inaccessible to users in Pakistan.”

Game, set, match? Is Facebook really thinking about blocking themselves from Pakistan?  That’s how I read it at first, but I think it means that Facebook is considering a way to make their product palatable to the whiner radicals.

Good grief!  The people in Pakistan who want to look at Facebook are GROWNUPS.  Can they not make a decision to look at or not look at material on their own?  Must they be herded like so many stupid sheep and “protected” for their own good?  Muslim or not, if I lived in Pakistan I would be raising a ruckus about wanting to make decisions for myself.

Which brings me to another point…

This “protection” of the people by eliminating their free choice is what sharia law is all about.  That’s what they want here, in our country.  Bowing and scraping and bending over  backwards not to offend them only aids them in removing freedoms from the people.

WAKE UP!

Celebrating Freedom of Speech and Expression

Yep.  I do — I believe that the Constitution gives me the right to free speech — even if that speech is offensive — unless it crosses the line into threatening speech.  So, here’s to Free Speech!

Draw Mohammed Day RevolutionMuslim Zachary Chesser So yeah, I know, I’m a terrible artist.  But here are some other fun things passed on to me by my friend the bartender….

Urban Infidel’s got a GREAT one

Andrea at Quoth The Raven can’t draw, apparently, but she’s joining in where she can….

And The Jawa Report has several free speech posts today!

It’s time to celebrate America and the freedom for which she stands.

Let’s roll….

Update:  From Brad Thor — why every freedom loving American should participate.

Back in 2005 the Muslim world went off the deep end over half a dozen cartoons.

The rampaging mobs had a distinct chilling effect on free speech.

However since then there has been a growing dissent at the abysmal precedent this sets in self censoring yourself simply because some psychos issue a few death threats.

This recently came to a head with the South Park incident where again some Muslims tried the same old game of issuing death threats. This time however it wasn’t going to happen. This time people had had enough. Draw Muhammad (Mohammad?) day was born.

To do my part to support this I did my best to defiantly show that if they wanted to take away my free speech it was going to take more than death threats.

Yet no backlash came. The youtube videos chalked up the best part of a million hits…. and no backlash. The facebook site gains some 40k members, who have already some 2000 images on the draw mohammad site, and still no angry mobs.

Yeah its clear what the score is here. Death threats are only played when they think they can get away with it. Of all the cheap opportunistic cowards.

Well fine… the original schedule goes ahead.
20th May 2010…. The first Annual Draw Muhammad Day.

The bottom line is that if Islam cannot learn to coexist with free speech, then it cannot coexist with the West.

Paki bans Facebook over “Everybody Draw Mo” Day

No kidding.

Facebook could be banned in Pakistan any time now, After they have not taken down the controversial Facebook Fan Page ‘ Everybody Draw Muhammad Day (20th may) ‘.  Ministry of Technology and Telecom has issued the directive to PTA (Pakistan Telecommunication Authority) to ban the access to Facebook reported by ProPakistani.

And then there’s this update:

[ Update: 19-May-2010 4:00 pm PST ]

Alright I am using PTCL DSL and I can confirm that access to entire facebook is blocked. Even the widgets we have on this blog are not showing any facebook share link.

That might just put a kink in the plans of the Anti-Draw-Mo-Day crowd who was hoping to DDOS anyone who posted images of Mo.

Update 2:  Looks like YouTube is banned too.
