Muslim Texas Q&A Geller Yackee

A group called the American Freedom Defensive Initiative, in the U-S state of Texas, recently sponsored a cartoon contest offering a ten-thousand dollar prize for a selected drawing of Islam’s prophet Muhammad. Two gunmen arrived on the scene and had a shootout with police, wounding one security guard before being shot dead themselves. Pamela Geller is President of the group that sponsored the event...and V-O-A’s Susan Yackee asked her why she held the contest.
