New Yorker mocks Muhammad drawing contest in Texas
by Dylan Baddour
Amani Alkhat read online that a notorious pundit would soon host a Muhammad drawing contest in Texas. But she wondered which Muhammad they would draw since there are more than 150 million.
Muhammad is, after all, the world's most common name.
Of course she knew the self-proclaimed activists meant to draw the prophet of Islam, and the chosen prophet of about one quarter of the world. The event's leader, Pamela Geller, is an infamous New York blogger and full-time anti-Islam activist. She's banned from entering Britain for her role in hate groups, and on Wednesday she forced New York Mass Transit Authority to outright ban political speech on public transportation after she claimed free speech protections allowed her buy advertisements on public buses saying "killing Jews is worship."
