Mantilla-twitch to CounterJihad for letting us know that Dhimmi Yale is having the Mohammed Cartoonist speak on campus. It’s too bad they chose not to include the cartoons in the book; it would be much better to include them. I’m excited about International Free Speech Day. Of course it will likely be viewed as anti-Islam propaganda since free speech isn’t an option in Muslim countries.
Mohammed cartoonist to speak at Yale
Free speech will be on the agenda when Kurt Westergaard and Lars Hedegaard visit students at Yale
The artist behind the infamous Mohammed cartoon, Kurt Westergaard, and the president of the International Free Press Society, Lars Hedegaard, will speak to Yale University students as a new book about the cartoon crisis is set to be published.
Yale University Press, an autonomous publishing house associated with the university, is releasing Danish author Jytte Clausen’s book ‘The Cartoons That Shook The World’ on Monday. The publisher has removed images of the cartoons from the book, reasoning that they might incite violence.
Westergaard’s cartoons, one of which depicts the prophet Mohammed with a bomb in his turban, were first published by Jyllands-Posten newspaper in 2005.
He and Hedegaard have been invited by a student organisation to speak at the university campus on 1 October, just three days after the book’s scheduled release.
Hedegaard told The Copenhagen Post that he would talk about the background of the crisis and the situation today. He expected Westergaard to talk about his art and what he wanted to express through his drawings.
The timing of the talk was appropriate, he said.
‘The decision of Yale University Press is of course despicable and a sign of censorship and fear. It’s a sad comment of our times that a well-respected company should bow to fear of threats,’ Hedegaard said.
Hedegaard also noted that 30 September is the fourth anniversary of the original publication of the drawings and announced plans to establish an annual event promoting free speech.
When asked if creating an International Free Speech Day on the cartoon anniversary would stir up negative feelings, Hedegaard said that it was not his intention to offend people.
‘We are simply making a statement that we have free speech in our country so that any ideology, or group or political party can be exposed to ridicule,’ said Hedegaard. ‘We can’t control people’s feelings’

From Jihad Watch: Babies for Jihad!
ISLAMABAD (Reuters) – About 2,000 Islamist women gathered at the radical Red Mosque in the Pakistani capital on Wednesday and vowed to raise their children for holy war, days after a suicide bomber killed 18 people after a similar rally.
Chanting slogans of “jihad is our way”, burqa-clad women, some with babies, listened to fiery speeches from the daughter of the mosque’s jailed cleric on the eve of the anniversary of a commando raid on the complex in which more than 100 people died. (READ ALL)
Ultimately, this is how they WILL win if they do.
They have children, we have utterly rejected our fertility in favor of comfort.
The next time you see a large family rather than make some smart alec comment about “You know what causes that, don’t you?” or “Get cable already!”…
THANK THEM and pray for them.

Mother who defied the killers is gunned down
Leila Hussein lived her last few weeks in terror. Moving constantly from safe house to safe house, she dared to stay no longer than four days at each. It was the price she was forced to pay after denouncing and divorcing her husband – the man she witnessed suffocate, stamp on, then stab their young daughter Rand in a brutal ‘honour’ killing for which he has shown no remorse.
