“Mohammed cartoons don’t inspire Islamic violence. Islamic violence inspires Mohammed cartoons.” – Bosch Fawstin
This is not an attempt to purposely enflame American Muslims against non-Muslims. I worry sometimes that perhaps it seems that we, at Eagle Rising, are against every practitioner and follower of Islam. It’s not so, but I can see why this perception exists. It’s very hard to separate Islam from radical Islam; in fact, as many of our readers have pointed out in the past, there is fundamentally ‘no difference’ between the two. However, there is a practical difference between moderate, non-violent Muslims (like Raheel Raza) and what seems to be the vast majority of the violence-supporting Muslim world.
So with that, let’s discuss a recent interview published in the National Review Online with the talented artist (and former Muslim) Bosch Fawstin. Fawstin sat down with NRO’s Andrew McCarthy to discuss one prevailing idea – “Why Draw Mohammed?”
Fawstin recently won a contest that was intended to be provocative, to prove a point, and a point was indeed proven. Fawstin won a “draw Mohammed” contest held during a free speech summit in Garland, Texas. Two Muslim men dressed in body armor and carrying rifles and handguns and armed with over a thousand rounds of ammunition approached the Curtis Culwell Center where the event was taking place. The men had plans to kill as many people at the event as they could, however, they chose to first attack police officers stationed outside the event. and in so doing. sealed their fate. During the firefight the officer was able to kill both terrorists keeping the mayhem to a minimum.
