Muslims to World: “Insult Anything Muslim and You Will Be Killed”

That’s right folks, it’s not just cartoons and images of Muhammad that will get one killed by the so-called “religion of peace and tolerance”, aka Islam. Now it’s something as simple as showing an image of the Kaaba at Mecca under the title “Dumb Stone.”
I wonder how many people they’ll kill worldwide this time? How many business will be destroyed this time? How many people’s lives will be forever changed for daring to express their right of free speech?

A Berlin gallery has closed an exhibition of satirical art by the controversial Danish group Surrend after receiving threats from a group of Muslims. The men were objecting to a picture of the Kaaba at Mecca under the title “Dumb Stone.”

Eighteen months ago, the severed head of Muhammad was enough to get an opera temporarily cancelled (more…) in Berlin. This time around, it’s an irreverent image of the Kaaba in Mecca that has caused an exhibition in the German capital to shut its doors.

But there is one major difference between the two incidents: Whereas the mere spectre of possible attacks was enough to get the Deutsche Oper to put the kibosh on a Mozart opera in 2006, Berlin’s Galerie Nord closed its doors this week after a group of Muslims walked into the gallery and threatened staff with violence.

“It was a very explosive situation,” Jan Egesborg, whose satirical art group Surrend created the Galerie Nord exhibition, told SPIEGEL ONLINE. “We don’t want to be part of the current Islamophobic tendency in Europe. We weren’t trying to provoke Muslims.”

The exhibition, called “ZOG — Surrend,” opened last Friday and was scheduled to run until the end of March. Conceived by the controversial Danish satirical art group, it included a picture of the black, cube-shaped Kaaba in the Muslim holy city of Mecca. Above the image, a headline read “Dumb Stone.” Gallery manager Ralf Hartmann decided on Tuesday to shut down the show after six men believed to have been Muslims turned up demanding that the image be removed. The men reportedly threatened the staff with violence should they not comply.

The president of Berlin’s influential Academy of Arts, Klaus Staeck, who opened the exhibition last week, expressed his support for the Danish group Friday. “I extend my solidarity to all artists … whose work is threatened by violent people who hold different beliefs,” Staeck said, adding that he hoped the exhibition could re-open soon.

    Terrorist threatsagainst art! Thugs, mafia, criminals, racists, and misguided muslim fanatics making any form of “terrorist” threats is prosecuted as a crime in the USA. These type of “threats” is an activity condemned throughout the world by all civilized nations and should not be tolerated. Fight for your own right of expression and freedom! The German gallery with a controversal exhibit should not have been closed. Instead, armed police should have been called to provide security, etc… Once you give in to intolerence and hatred of others, soon you are relieved or persecuted for these same freedoms or beliefs, or artistic actions in this case. Please remember: “…Those who are ignorant of the past are condemned to repeat it..” The Holocaust started out by these same types of threats, which soon gave more power to the ones making the threats. Do not tolerate Muslim facists threats, do something – remove their power, hunt them down, have them prosecuted, exhibit more art! Protect your freedom and exercise your right to express youself in your art! Thee Art Gallery at by Monty Ousley Weddell TX, USA
