More Free Expression Fallout

The March for Free Expression’s Peter Risdon has written an open letter to Ismaeel Hijazi of the Muslim Action Committee, available at the MfFE blog. He concludes -
This opportunity we both have to break down barriers is one of the best things to come out of the free expression campaign. I'm glad I had a chance to make a contribution first. I'm also very glad you now have a similar opportunity.
Here's the emboldened Ismaeel Hijazi's latest entry on the MAC blog:
The NYU instends to display the cartoons, please send emails asking for civility.
We have just recieved this letter from Stop Political Terror one of our supporting organisations, by our sister Yvonne Ridley.
as'salaamu alaykum,
Our brothers and sisters in New York desperately need our help and support.
On March 29th, this Wednesday, an event is being held by a student organization at New York University called the Objectivist Club. The event's purpose is to analyze the issue of free speech with an emphasis put on the vile cartoons published in Denmark that depicted the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, and Islam in a highly offensive manner.
The student group is also planning on displaying the cartoons at the event. I joined Muslim students in an emergency meeting with the university and its administration on Friday to ensure the display will not go ahead
I wonder when Peter will get it.

He's a hard man to stay angry with, isn't he?
