Americans need to take a cue from Geert Wilders in standing up against Islam.
The UK Telegraph reports that Dutch politician Geert Wilders, a guest of honor at the Mohammed Art Exhibit in Garland, Texas, has asked his parliament to stage an exhibition of the Mohammed cartoons from the event.
The original display in Garland was attacked by Islamist terrorists based in Phoenix, Arizona, who were killed by one security officer after wounding another. Counter-terrorism agencies are investigating possible links to international organizations such as Somalia’s al-Shabaab and ISIS, which has claimed responsibility for the attack.
Wilders delivered his presentation and had departed the conference center when the attack occurred. He is evidently eager to express his defiance of the terrorists, and encourages the Dutch government to do likewise.
“I am going to request parliament to exhibit the same cartoons as those that were displayed in Garland,” Wilders said. “I want to send a message that if you use violence to suppress free speech the only effect is that we’ll do it even more. We must show we’ll not be intimidated.”
