Bosch Fawstin's winning Muhammad cartoon removed by eBay on 'technicality'
by Jessica Chasmar
The artist who won the "draw Mohammed" cartoon contest attacked by terrorists last May in Garland, Texas, said his drawing was removed from eBay Wednesday on a "technicality."
Bosch Fawstin, a former Muslim, won $12,500 in prize money at the May 3, 2015, event, sponsored by Pamela Geller's American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), for a drawing that showed a sword-wielding prophet in a turban shouting, "You can't draw me." In reply, a cartoon bubble portrayed the artist as writing, "That's why I draw you."
Two terrorists opened fire on officers outside the event before they were fatally shot by police.
