Houston imam calls for censorship after Garland jihad attempt

Only at the very end of the article do we hear this imam call for restrictions on free speech.  Do you wonder why it is at the end of the article?  Because the MSM continues to carry water for Islamic apologists and reinforce the idea that any criticism of Islam, no matter its form must be censored.  In order not to offend Muslims, doncha know.

Group that hosted Prophet Muhammad Cartoon Contest has Houston supporters

HOUSTON -The group that hosted the "Prophet Muhammad Cartoon Contest" that ended with the death of two suspected terrorists in Garland, has loyal followers in Houston, Channel 2 Investigates has learned.

The American Freedom Defense Initiative, AFDI, which collected more than $950,000 in donations in 2013, according to a public filing, did not disclose an exact number of members in the Houston area.

But Channel 2 Investigates has learned a handful of local members attended the Garland event.

"We are in a battle to stand for our First Amendment and to me that's a battle worth fighting," a Houston AFDI member, said.

That member, who wanted to be identified as Alexander, attended the cartoon contest event, along with approximately 250 others.?

"I think they were hoping to, possibly, as the crowd was streaming out, they could just wipe us all out," Alexander said.

None of the event's attendees were injured.

In a recent interview with Channel 2's Joel Eisenbaum, Alexander said he does not advocate violence.

The group, AFDI, was founded by Pamela Geller, a New Yorker, who is Jewish.

She has been labeled as anti-Muslim by some groups....

(.) But other Houstonians, including a Houston area Muslim imam, who condemned the Garland attack, but supports restrictions on free speech, believes incendiary language should be restricted by law.

"I think there needs to be a change to the law where people do not disrespect especially high people," Imam Mobasher Ahmed said.
