$10K prize for best Muhammad cartoon at ‘Stand with the Prophet’ conference

Following the jihad attacks in Paris at the Charlie Hebdo headquarters, which were “avenging” the non-prophet Muhammad, a conference took place in which there is no doubt that Islamic Shariah laws were talked about.

Across the way, Pamela Geller‘s American Freedom Defense Initiative hosted a freedom of speech rally that drew thousands in opposition to the conference.
