Attack on Freedom
Fanatical jihadists have once again attacked free speech. This time the terrorists targeted Denmark. They tried to kill a cartoonist who had the temerity to draw a physical depiction of Mohammad. While the intended victim survived, another attendee of the "free speech" event was murdered and three policemen were wounded. Like the Paris assault on Charlie Hebdo, this outrage was not aimed only at individuals, but at the very concept of Western freedom, the bedrock of which is our right to say controversial things. We must resist those who seek to steal our liberty.
