    As reported by Deutschlandfunk, a private person had registered the event. He intended to hold a meeting in memory of the recently deceased Kurt Westergaard and Samuel Paty for the Friday prayer opposite the DITIB mosque in Cologne-Ehrenfeld.

    The caricaturist Westergaard is the author of the Mohammed cartoons, which led to violent unrest around the world at the time. Westergaard was under constant Muslim threat and barely escaped an ax attack by a Somali Muslim on January 2, 2010. The teacher Samuel Paty was beheaded by a Chechen Muslim for having discussed the Mohammed cartoons in class last year.

    The police in Cologne banned the “massive provocation in the direction of the Islamic world” even though it is not illegal to show these cartoons in Germany.

    Meanwhile, the activist group PixelHELPER, which campaigns for the freedom of art in Islam, carried out a courageous action. They projected a Mohammed caricature onto the DITIB Sehitlik mosque in Berlin.

      We need more guerilla-speech like that of
      PixelHELPER. Leaflets and stickers can be dumped on windy streets in Muslim neighborhoods at 2:00 AM. Black Muslim neighborhoods are particularly interesting, since the stickers can point out Mohamed’s racist behavior (eg. Q-ron 3:106). Separating Muslims from each other and from their apologists should be the goal.
