Muslim threats close a Berlin gallery.....

Muslims are learning that censorship works...
A Berlin gallery has temporarily closed an exhibition of satirical works by a group of Danish artists after six Muslim youths threatened violence unless one of the posters depicting the Kaaba shrine in Mecca was removed, it said on Thursday. The Galerie Nord in central Berlin said it had closed its "Zionist Occupied Government" show of works by Surrend, a group of artists who say they poke fun at powerful people and ideological conflicts.

On Tuesday, four days after the exhibition opened, a group of angry Muslims stormed into the gallery, shouting demands that one of the 21 posters should be removed, said the gallery.

"They were very agrressive and shouted at an employee that the poster should be taken down otherwise they would throw stones and use violence," the gallery's artistic director Ralf Hartmann told Reuters.

The Muslims objected to a depiction of the Kaaba -- the ancient shrine in Mecca's Grand Mosque which Muslims face to say their prayers -- which gave a "bitingly satirical commentary against radicalism," said the gallery in a statement.

Does the gallery have surveillance cameras? They should have told the thugs to eff off, and turned pictures of them over to police to press charges.

Ah yes, the religion of overwrought outrage doing it again. If Muslims don't like freedom of expression, they are more than welcome to move to any shithole islamic dictatorship of their choice. As for the dhimmis backing down in front of muslim barbarism - shame on you and please, do follow the barbarians to the nearest islamic shithole. You obviously don't hold our freedoms in any sort of respect.
