The American Muslim convert who plotted to assassinate me and slaughter everyone who attended our free speech event in Garland, Texas got 30 years today at his sentencing hearing in Texas. We were targeted for death in the first ISIS attack on American soil because we violated the free speech prohibitions under Islamic law.
This attack was a declaration of war in the homeland. Abdul Malik Abdul Kareem should have gotten a life sentence at Gitmo.
Freedom of speech is the foundation of a free society. Without it, a
tyrant can wreak havoc unopposed, while his opponents are silenced.
Islamic law forbids criticism of Islam, Quran, Muhammad. If they
cannot be criticized in the US, we are in effect accepting Islamic law
as overriding the freedom of speech. This would establish Muslims as a
protected class and prevent honest discussion of how Islamic jihadists
use the texts and teachings of Islam to justify violence and
The Muhammad cartoons are a flash point in the discussion about free
speech because according to Islamic law they are blasphemy, punishable
by death. Many have been killed over them. At issue is whether we will
protect those who draw them and exhibit them, and thereby protect free
speech and free society, or censor ourselves and others over them,
thereby in effect adopting Sharia.
