Muhammad Cartoons Shown on Dutch TV

As we reported last weekend, Geert Wilders’ video of the Garland Mohammed cartoons was scheduled to be broadcast on Dutch state TV last Saturday, but an alleged mistake caused the tapes to be switched and prevented the Motoons from being aired.

The second broadcast of them was scheduled for today, and went off as planned. The PVV just sent out the following notice:

Today, a selection of Muhammad cartoons were shown on Dutch public television.

The cartoons were originally shown at an exhibition of Muhammad cartoons in Garland, Texas, last May, where PVV leader Geert Wilders gave a speech, and which was attacked by terrorists.

Geert Wilders: “The only way to show terrorists that they are not going to win is to do exactly what they do not want us to do. I do not broadcast the cartoons to provoke; I do it because we have to show that we stand for freedom of speech and that we will never surrender to violence. Freedom of speech must always prevail over violence and terror.”

So is it time for mobs representing the Tiny Minority of Extremists to start torching embassies in Amman and Jakarta? Stay tuned.

Once again, here is the video that was broadcast on Dutch TV:

The Wall Street Journal has posted an article (requires subscription) about the broadcast of the Motoons.

  1. I’m very pleasantly surprised that Mr. Wilder’s was able to accomplish this.

  2. Thank you, GoV, very much for showing us the other contest entries. It’s difficult to call them “cartoons,” since they are so serious and devoid of humor, but “drawings” they certainly are.

    Dank U wel.

  3. My only question is: Did PVV have to send observers to the station to look over the shoulders of the broadcast engineers to make sure it was broadcast?

    • I don’t think that people in the MENA even learn about these things unless someone there decides to intentionally try to start a riot to serve their own purposes by publicizing the video, drawing, or whatever. So the rioting won’t get started until some action is taken by someone, probably locally somewhere.
