There is much that is wrong with Islam - be it radical or otherwise. There is little doubt that Islam is infected with a strain of intolerance and violence that is unparalleled in human history. When Theo Van Gogh was butchered by a Muslim, I knew we were in trouble, and that the West had better respond robustly.
Unfortunately we are burdened with Political Correctness and Multiculturalism - both of which are enervating and deserve no place in our culture. But, we have to play the hand we're dealt and right now we're starting to succumb to the New Left's simultaneous tactics of appeasement of our enemies, and demonization of all that is American.
In that vein, May 20th is Everybody Draw Mohammed Day. It is a day to express and celebrate Freedom. It is a day to relish our long history of Art and culture and to send a message that Mohammed should be treated NO DIFFERENT than any other major world figure.
