UK: London "Draw Mohammed" exhibition cancelled; Scotland Yard "can't guarantee safety"

Rebel Staff
 

A Draw Mohammed contest scheduled for London, England has been cancelled. I talked to Simon Kent of Breitbart UK about what happened.

Scotland Yard told the organizers they couldn't guarantee their safety.

Of course, earlier this year, terrorists targeted a similar event in Garland, Texas hosted by Pamela Geller.

Is this really the spirit of John Milton, Margaret Thatcher and Winston Churchill?

Well it appears now that it is quite certain.
If Scotland Yard can supress free speech in regards to the Mohamed Cartoon contest Scotland yard will next move to supress books written by Salmon Rushdie. The British home office directs Scotland yard and it is clear that appeasement of Islam is HRH Prince Charles desire – after all – insofar as Royalty is concerned "what are minions for ? "
(Writer Martin Amis noted in Vanity Fair Magazine in 1989

(In regards to Iran’s Ayatollah issuing a fatwa on Solomon Rushdie.
Prince Charles “said ’I’m sorry, but if someone insults someone Else’s deepest convictions, well then,’ blah blah blah”…
Prince Charles was not alone in expressing criticism of The Satanic Verses; John le Carré wrote in the Guardian at the time that nobody had “a God-given right to insult a great world religion and be published with impunity”, while Roald Dahl called Rushdie “a dangerous opportunist” who “must have been totally aware of the deep and violent feelings his book would stir up among devout Muslims”.)

When we swear an oath to become a Canadian or British citizen. We swear to obey their laws. Freedom of speech or expression part of these laws we must obey. When someone portrays Jesus in a negative way. I do not enjoy it but I know I am a Canadian citizen and tolerate it.

Anybody who has issues with freedom of speech or expression is in violation of the oath we swear to and should be deported immediately. If they feel so strongly about Mohammed’s images. Why are they in our country?

Instead of mocking Mohammed, why not expose him with facts of who he actually was? His wives said he was not a prophet. He was a bloodthirsty warmonger, a pedophile rapist, a polygamist, and more

Something going on in Australia right now……as pasted………..

A WARNING FROM DICK SMITH:
You may be aware that " Dick Smith " chain franchise stores are being pressured by the Islamic Council of
Australia to gain ‘Halal Certification’ otherwise they will be proscribed and banned from Muslim custom.

This is their response:

A MESSAGE FROM DICK SMITH.
“We at Dick Smith ‘s have received a number of letters from people asking if we will be putting the Muslim
Halal logo on our food.
To acquire Halal certification, payment is required to the endorsing body (the Islamic Council) and involves a
number of site inspections of both our growers and processors in order to ensure that our practices comply
with the conditions of Halal certification.
It is important to note that this does not reflect the quality of the food being processed or sold – it only
means that the products are approved as being prepared in accordance with the traditions of the Muslim
faith.
We are aware of an increasing number of large companies both in Australia and overseas, such as Kraft and
Cadbury, who have obtained accreditation to use the Halal logo. We don’t believe they have done this because
of any religious commitment but rather for purely commercial reasons. Perhaps these large organisations
can afford to do this.
While we have a choice however, we would prefer to avoid unnecessarily increasing the cost of our products
in order to pay for Halal accreditation when this money would be better spent continuing to support important
charitable causes where assistance is greatly needed.
We point out that we have never been asked to put a Christian symbol (or any other religious symbol) on our
food requiring that we send money to a Christian organisation for the right to do so.
Others would add that money paid to ANY Muslim ’organisation’ (and you had better believe it: these people
ARE ‘organised’) can easily find its way into the hands of Islamic extremist-fanatics and murderers,
irrespective of assurances to the contrary.
What other assurances do we accept from Muslims?
Oh, that’s right,
‘Islam is a religion of PEACE’!
How less Australian can companies get, than to place money into the hands of those who seek to exploit us?”
This is an example of how the leaders of Muslims in Aus/NZ are bullying large commercial organisations
(especially in the food industry) into paying what is no more than blatant extortion money. The amazing part
is that these weak-kneed organisations (Cadbury/ Schweppes/ Nestles/ Kraft etc.) actually pay the large
sums demanded by these self-appointed religious bureaucrats. Of course, the manufacturers promptly pass this levy
on to unwitting consumers as cost increases. Next time you buy a block of Cadbury’s chocolate,
look for the Halal Certification seal on the wrapper. So, regardless of your own
religious faith, you end up subsidizing Islam.
The Council also controls the Muslim voter bloc which, as yet, does not have sufficient critical mass to
make a difference – but give them time.
Several state jurisdictions are under pressure to adopt or permit Sharia Law in Marriage, Family and Property
matters and some, under the delusion that they are being progressively liberal, are permitting this. This has
already happened in some local authorities in the U.K.
Google the U.K. Education Department’s current investigation into the conduct of Muslim-run schools in the
Birmingham area of England .

How many more warnings do people need?

JOAN ABERNETHY said: “The law is all that’s left to save British freedoms.” It will not be enough. The British Courts may be as compromised as ours. Violence is inevitable one thinks.

The only ones allowed the luxury of freedom of speech in the UK are the Muslims. They can go around chanting ‘Death to all non Muslims’ ‘Kill Christians and Jews’ and so on. The police just stand around taking Vids. If a Christian responds to these Idiots, they are arrested for trying to provoke violence. Not to long ago, a Muslim punched a Christian in the face, the Christian was arrested because he had insulted a Muslim. The police and Government do nothing, less they be accused of being Islamophobic.
What follows is, to the best of my memory, from Vox News; 1700 young girls, aged between eight and fifteen, have been Kidnapped and Raped by Pakistani Muslims and then farmed out as Prostitutes.
The most common way that these Girls are, for want of a better phrase, ‘Broken In’ is to strip them and then bend them over a table, next, their TONGUES ARE NAILED TO THE TABLE and a lineup of PAKISTANI MUSLIM (I WILL CALL A SPADE A SPADE) youths forms up to engage in Anal Sex. These girls then end up on the street as Prostitutes, controlled by Isamic Pimps. As yet, the police have done very little to help these poor kids. It would be politically incorrect.
The best sign, carried by a Muslim, that I have seen, says, “KILL ALL THOSE WHO SAY ISLAM IS NOT A RELIGION OF PEACE

Erin – Indeed. Gangs of spray-paint-armed counter-jihadi Muhammad cartoonists imaging London’s bridges and bricks weekly during Friday prayers. If only Scotland Yard could be detailed elsewhere to give art a chance, what a weapon the pen could prove.

I hear fb removed Britain First’s post advertising a toilet paper each square of which is an ISIS flag.
commented 2015-08-21 12:58:34 -0400
Rick – Sure Muslims would protest, but I say let them and give the issue to the courts where the law can be argued. The law is all that’s left to save British freedoms.

VLAD what you cry spamming I call FREEDOM OF SPEECH and FREEDOM OF THE PRESS – I think Ezra Levant might agree with me on this … Again I want to thank the staff and all The Rebels stopping by my small news service in Edmonton to see some of the outdated Satire Cartoons I sketched featuring The Rebel Media’s Ezra Levant http://www.ciactivist.org/FREENEWSARRCHIVES.html

Today I published one highly controversal FREE NEWS SHARING YouTube and more editorial cartoons including a recent (All For Fun) cartoon of Ezra Levant…

ENJOY REBELS & As-salamu alaykum !

There is an art exhibit in Milwaukee of pope Benedict XVI made of coloured prophylactics. A complete irreverence. Who’s going to protest that? These people are stupid, proven by their lust for vengeance. Silence, I kill you. Killing is easy, political correctness is a pain in the ass

Thank you Rebels for dropping by and checking out my Political & Media Satire Cartoons featuring Rebel Media’s Ezra Levant http://www.ciactivist.org/FREENEWSARRCHIVES.html

It’s just for fun… I am not Charlie Hebdo!

I’ll take these cartoons of Ezra down later tomorrow because it’s really old news and I actually like Ezra – I cant say I agree with all this making fun of Mohammed. Not a Muslim myself, I have learned that Islam is a religion of peace, made a lot a great Muslim friends over the years and I think WE non Muslims should just try to be respectful of other people’s religions.

I already know I wont get a lot of support here on this forum but I think most Canadians are respectful… As-salamu alaykum !

Freedom of speech except if you upset muslims. How long before Britain stages its own Kosovo (Bosnia etc). Canada should be watching
commented 2015-08-20 21:03:52 -0400
Is that because “Islam is the Religion of Peace” ? or—Are just
Afraid that they might KILL you?

Britain has the option of laying Private Charges same as Canada. The organizer should charge the Chief with Breach of Trust for failing in his Duty. They take the path of least resistance, so put up more resistance on our side, FORCE them to do their job or pay the price!!!

JOAN ABERNETHY said: “Charles – Indeed. I was thinking of Pamela Geller’s campaign in the US. She has won all her cases in the courts. British law is not that different. If some individual took it on in London, s/he might succeed.” In an unbiased situation perhaps. I fear we in the Western Democracies are far past that. Any challenge would be fiercely contested by the Muzzies and the Socialists, supported by the Socialist Media. Obama is not yet in full control of the U.S. judiciary hence Pamela’s successes. This will not last. It seems inevitable that WWIII is to play out. Are we strong enough in our convictions to resist this tyranny?

Nice to see Simon Kent again. Congrats, Simon. Breitbart rocks.

Scotland Yard is likely taking direction from London’s wealthy Muslim Brotherhood. I am so disappointed in them and in everyone for cancelling this event. It gives the enemies of freedom of expression the upper hand.

Someone should make big posters of the Muhammed art and post them in London subways.

What kind of security would be needed at a “draw the pope” exhibition ?
Would there be death threats ? would there be riots ? would there be violence ?
commented 2015-08-20 18:38:06 -0400
The sad thing is, writing as a son of a proud RCMP vet, the police services are now politically correct social welfare workers, not enforcers of law for the common man. I think this is why we are seeing so many unnecessary killings by police officers and of police officers; they no longer have a raison d’etre to exist so are not properly trained. Another institution that should have been included in the “trust poll” of a few days back.
commented 2015-08-20 18:15:08 -0400
Doesn’t surprise me whatsoever. Shows the power of demographics – during the time of Salman Rushdie controversy, there were 90% fewer Muslims in the UK than there are today…..and look what has changed: A LOT. Just one example, the UK are now offering Sharia compliant state student loans. At this rate, the UK will be a failed state within 20 years. Don’t believe me?
