Hudson Mohawk Indymedia has produced a definitive account of the 
whirlwind of events surrounding Wafaa Bilal's controversial art exhibit, 
"Virtual Jihadi."

"Art and Terrorism" goes beyond the sound bites to find out what 
happened when an Iraqi artist came to Troy, NY only to be censored--not 
once, but twice.

First, Wafaa Bilal was chased off campus after his artwork was 
mis-characterized as terrorist propaganda by undergraduate bloggers.

When the exhibition was given refuge by The Sanctuary for Independent 
Media, the city government responded by shutting down the space.
