.

Everybody Draw Mohammed Day was an event held on May 20, 2010 in support of free speech and freedom of artistic expression of those threatened by violence for drawing representations of the Islamic Prophet Muhammad. It began as a protest against censorship of an American television show, South Park, “201” by its distributor, Comedy Central, in response to death threats against some of those responsible for two segments broadcast in April 2010. Observance of the day began with a drawing posted on the Internet on April 20, 2010, accompanied by text suggesting that “everybody” create a drawing representing Muhammad, on May 20, 2010, as a protest against efforts to limit freedom of speech. A second “Everybody Draw Mohammed Day” took place on May 20, 2011, and a third on May 20, 2012, this time specifically on Twitter, in protest to the near-execution of Hamza Kashgari over three tweets that were said to be “insulting the prophet”.

U.S. cartoonist Molly Norris of Seattle, Washington, created the artwork in reaction to Internet death threats that had been made against cartoonists Trey Parker and Matt Stone for depicting Muhammad in an episode of South Park. Depictions of Muhammad are explicitly forbidden by a few hadiths (sayings of and about Muhammad), though not by the Qur’an.[1] Postings on RevolutionMuslim.com (under the pen name Abu Talha al-Amrikee; later identified as Zachary Adam Chesser) had said that Parker and Stone could wind up like Theo van Gogh, a Dutch filmmaker who was shot to death.[citation needed]

Norris said that if people draw pictures of Muhammad, Islamic terrorists would not be able to murder them all, and threats to do so would become unrealistic. Within a week, Norris’ idea became popular on Facebook, was supported by numerous bloggers, and generated coverage on the blog websites of major U.S. newspapers. As the publicity mounted, Norris and the man who created the first Facebook page promoting the May 20 event disassociated themselves from it. Nonetheless, planning for the protest continued with others “taking up the cause”.[2] Facebook had an “Everybody Draw Mohammed Day” page, which grew to over 100,000 participants (101,870 members by May 20). A protest page on Facebook against the initiative, named “Against ‘Everybody Draw Mohammed Day'”, attracted slightly more supporters (106,000 by May 20).[3] Subsequently, Facebook was temporarily blocked by Pakistan; the ban was lifted after Facebook agreed to block the page for users in India and Pakistan.

In the media, Everybody Draw Mohammed Day attracted both support from commentators who felt that the campaign represented important issues of freedom of speech, and the need to stand up for this freedom, as well as criticism from other commentators who found the initiative crass, juvenile, and needlessly offensive.

    It was very telling that organs like the NY Times
    condemned any unflattering depictions of Mohammad.
    This is the sanme media that sniffed that blasphemous
    depicions of Christ like Piss Jesus is ‘Art” &
    therefore protected & why don’t you rubes get it?
    See Christians will not put out a hit & them , but
    the RoP will. Craven bastards.

    Today also happens to be Yom Yerushalayim (Jerusalem Day), the anniversary (on the Hebrew calendar) of the day when Jerusalem was re-united during the Six-Day War, after nineteen years of illegal Jordanian occupation.

    As always, I like to remind people that the world which danced with delirious joy when Hitler’s capital of Berlin was re-united has been trying to re-divide Jerusalem, the capital of Hitler’s primary target, ever since re-unification occurred.

    In honor of the day, I have dusted off The Mosque Upon the Mount over at the PJ Tatler.

    It’s yet another glorious day in the beautiful Sonoran Desert. Just a little smoke in The Valley of The Sun from the fires today. Lucky me, I may have a torn meniscus, I had to order a new air conditioner, and I have to go to Chicago again. I hope all those freeloading, trouble making, hippie freaks and weirdos are gone before I get there.

    U.S. Leads Effort to Criminalize Free Speech

    The Human Rights Council concluded its nineteenth session on March 23, 2012 and adopted, without a vote, yet another resolution aimed at restricting freedom of speech throughout the world. While its title[1], as usual, suggests it is about combating intolerance based on religion, its plain language shows that, once again, speech is the real target.

    (…)

    Our Secretary of State applauded the OIC and described efforts leading to Resolution 16/18 as beginning “to overcome the false divide that pits religious sensitivities against freedom of expression.” Far from demanding a “reservations clause” of any kind, the United States, instead, sponsored a three-day, closed-door meeting in Washington, DC last December on implementing 16/18 —a meeting in a series called the “Istanbul Process.” Taking its lead from the US, the European Union then offered to host the next session, an initiative the OIC hailedas a “a qualitative shift in action against the phenomenon of Islamophobia.”

    (…)

    Search ends for crewman who jumped from ship

    Authorities have called off a search in and around the Port of Galveston after being unable to find a Lebanese crewman who disappeared after jumping from a ship. Ahmad Faras, 36, jumped from the Heidi Plus on Friday morning. Workers aboard the Beirut-registered ship, docked at a pier in the harbor, were scheduled to load cattle Monday for transport to Russia. Police said Faras landed in the water, but there was no immediate news on whether he made it ashore. No further details are currently available.

    Suspects wielding hammers and batons attack diners at Tinley Park restaurant

    It was the middle of the lunch rush Saturday, and Mike Winston was working in the kitchen of his Tinley Park restaurant, the Ashford House, when a waitress screamed a fight had broken out in the dining room.

    Police call the melee at the restaurant a targeted assault by a mob that Winston said wielded metal batons and hammers. Ten diners were hurt in the attack, and three of those were hospitalized.

    they will scrub dishes and the toilets and other hard work then return to jail during off hours for a period of no less than one year. the person who normally does that job will become the supervisor and get an extra stipend from the fine they will pay.

    they will also apologize to those they assaulted and after their stint in the restaurant, they will work for free for those patrons for a period of no less than one year.

    the following is unconfirmed ienterwebs chatter…On Saturday, May 19th a group of 30 anti-fascists descended upon Ashford House restaurant in the Chicago suburb of Tinley Park where the 5th annual White Nationalist Economic Summit and Illinois White Nationalist Meet-and-Greet was taking place.

    As much as I enjoy the idea of racists being beaten, right now we only have the groups word on it.

    Besides, they also attacked an employee and caused massive damage to the restaurant. The fact is: this may have been a group of racists, but they had the right to peacefully assemble, this group decided they were allowed to commit illegal actions to violate their free speech.

    Also, who gave them the right to decide who are fascists? I’ve noticed the term fascist is very flexible for liberals, ranging from racists to people who disagree with them and they want to shut up.

    Yeah did they have a *banner* to indicate they were facists? Or were they simply *conservatives*…hey they got it wrong on the Rush Limbaugh protest in Chicago. They seem to be numbnuts.

    Yeah, there’s something going on here. These people were well organized. All that I can see so far is that there was one group, possible bad people, possibly not, attacked by a second group that had no respect for rules or law. The second group then chose to attack innocent employees and a wedding party.

    What I find more interesting is that in the article about the wedding that got caught in the march, was that apparently earlier in the week police arrested a group of OWS preparing to attack O and Rahms homes with firebombs.

    the defense claims it was a set up and the cops actually were the ones who brought the cocktails… who knows? it smells bad.

    @ The Osprey:
    Actually it’s more likely the ANtifa group had a Celtic Cross banner. Apparently according to the blog post, they travel to Irish festivals.

    The woman who made the reservation said the group tours Irish festivals around the country, according to the employee.

    That was the woman who made the reservation for the masked thugs. The thing that makes this look like BS is that according to staff, the people who showed up for the reservation did not seem to know each other.

    (I’m thinking flash mob type event, which I mentioned a year or so ago, was used to get the attackers in one place).

    I’m good with all pizza, but if left to my preference, NY is too floppy, and Chicago is too much crust. The perfect pizza has a crust that is wafer thin and crunches when you bite into it. It’s a carrying vessel for the toppings and thick cheese.
