You might recall we wrote about the “Stand with the Prophet” Islamic conference held last month in Garland, Texas. One of the featured speakers was an unindicted co-conspirator of the 1993 WTC bombing. Imam Siraj Wahhaj has preached in favor of Sharia, as recently as 2007, saying, “Islam is better than democracy. Allah will cause his deen [Islam as a complete way of life], Islam to prevail over every kind of system, and you know what? It will happen.”
He may be getting his wish, but more on that a few paragraphs down.
In any event, Texans will be staging their own conference in support of free speech, on the same location where the January conference was held. Pamela Geller and her American Freedom Defense Initiative is planning a “Draw the Prophet” art and cartoon contest in Garland on May 3rd.
