They were upset over drawings.
This is one of those drawings.
Actually, the artist is lying to you.
That is Muhammad.
Well, OK, not literally Muhammad. If so, that would be a rather neat trick for a painter to perform.
From the article:
Authorities were investigating whether the shooting was a terrorist attack.In the Age of Obama I am just happy that it even occurred to them.
The Obama administration does not actually believe in terrorism, merely random acts of something-or-other by no one in particular.
Two prominent Muslim imams in the Dallas area on Monday denounced the violence in Garland and called on community members "not to be baited" into anger by events like the "Muhammad Art Exhibit."They simply do not get it.
“As a Muslim community we need to acknowledge hate groups and not get baited,” said Imam Zia ul-Haque Sheikh, the leader of one of North Texas’ largest mosques. “They are trying to provoke the Muslims into doing something wrong.”
No one is trying to provoke anyone. There is a very long tradition among westerners for standing up for freedom of speech. The reason that they draw Muhammad and not, say, Moses or Jesus, is because neither Jews nor Christians chop off heads when they feel insulted.
