AP Interview: Dutch firebrand wants more Muhammad cartoon shows in face of Garland shooting

The Dutch anti-Islam political leader who was guest of honor at the Prophet Muhammad cartoon show in Garland, Texas, where gunmen opened fire is calling for more such exhibitions as a show of defiance.

Geert Wilders of the Dutch PVV Freedom Party said in a telephone interview on Thursday that he wants to set up a special Prophet Muhammad cartoon show at the Dutch legislature in The Hague and said all parties who back freedom of expression should rally around the idea.

Wilders said that "the most important reaction to the attack on freedom of expression was to make sure that everybody sees this."

Wilders spoke at the show but left before the shooting that injured a security and left the two attackers dead.
