Draw-Mohammed-Day Cartoonist Changes Identity
Never mind that Molly Norris had backtracked and disavowed the idea of draw Mohammed day as she never meant to insult Moslems.
Well, Moslems don't accept apologies for insulting their so-called prophet.
From Weasel Zippers, citing the Seattle Times (hat tip to Infidel Bloggers Alliance):
You may have noticed that Molly Norris’ comic is not in the paper this week. That’s because there is no more Molly.Another cartoonifada!
The gifted artist is alive and well, thankfully. But on the insistence of top security specialists at the FBI, she is, as they put it, “going ghost”: moving, changing her name, and essentially wiping away her identity.
She will no longer be publishing cartoons in our paper or in City Arts magazine, where she has been a regular contributor.
She is, in effect, being put into a witness-protection program—except, as she notes, without the government picking up the tab.
It’s all because of the appalling fatwa issued against her this summer, following her infamous “Everybody Draw Mohammed Day” cartoon....
Once again, the religion of peace proves that it is not peaceful, nor does Islam allow for freedom of expression, particularly if that freedom of expression is perceived as insulting Islam, Mohammed, the Koran, Moslems. Etcetera, etcetera, etcetera, to the point of all things Islamic, including naming a nightclub "La Meca"; read the information about the night club at Tea and Politics.
Remember these words of Pastor Martin Niemöller (1892–1984):
They came first for the Communists,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew.
Then they came for me
and by that time no one was left to speak up.
