A Sharia Victory in the Netherlands
This November was meant to be the month for MP Geert Wilders' second "Draw Muhammad" contest, but Islamic law won a de facto victory over Dutch law mere weeks ago as Wilders announced the contest's cancellation. When a 19-year-old Afghan stabbed two American tourists in Amsterdam, citing the planned contest as motive, Wilders canceled the event out of concern about further violence. The Islamists had made their point: "Having the law on your side makes no difference. Do what we want, or somebody is going to get hurt."
