Cartoonish Muslims protest free speech

Have you been following this? According to NPR, a German man was kidnapped (and then released), and riots have been erupting worldwide -- all because a Danish newspaper published images of Allah and Mohammed. Any depiction of these two characters is forbidden by Islam.

The BBC has several stories on the Muslim problem: 1, 2, 3.

It's not a terrible shock that a perceived insult to Islam has Muslims calling for death and making murderous threats. It is a pattern repeated since the diseased "caliphate" blighted the world nigh on 12 centuries ago. The current emulation of the Dark Agers going nuts is because they don't understand free speech, they don't have it, and they don't even want it.

Note that when Monty Python made "The Life of Brian," and after it was deemed blasphemous by the Vatican, no Christians set fire to anything, nor threatened anyone's life nor kidnapped a single human being. (I'm atheist, but the comparison is quite meaningful).

Likewise when the notorious "Piss Christ" debuted some years back in the United States, Christians didn't call for the blood of infidels.

Oh how the world tires of Dark Age fundamentalists. The West is not at war with Islam, we're just getting extremely bored with it.

In the name of art and free speech, I present the following:

There are some Muslims in the world who do not like all this protesting. It is just getting so much attention to the acrtoons, which would have otherwise gone un-noticed. Further, I feel that a lot of people, e.g IRAN are using this whole thing to take advantage in world politics.

the NEMTU http://nemtu.wordpress.com a small organisation of Tamil speaking Muslims in Sri Lanka have called for an end to all protests.

Hola,es una verguenza que en el nombre de la libertad, aquella misma que mucha gente sacrifico su vida para que nosotros podamos disfrutar de ella, se permitan estos tipos de dibujos.
Vuestra libertad de expresión no es mas que una tapadera para poder insultar a vuestras anchas y es una verguenza puesto que no teneis limites en nada ni respeto a nada empezando por vosotros mismos.GRACIAS

Dear Mr. Anonymous,

You say our freedom is being used to insult people? I say this: being incensed by the slightest, perceived provocation is indicative of a total lack of power and self esteem. Muslims who commit murder and vandalism after somebody publishes some cartoons in a backwater newspaper tips their hand -- they have no political clout and no respect around the world. And torching cars and beheading people is only making the situation worse.

Huh. I clicked on Timo0o0o0o0o link to his blog. His profile says he's been online as a blogger since Nov. 2006. Yet he hasn't written a word.

Way to go Timo0o0o0o0o. Keep up the great work, you magnificent communicator!

It's quite telling, by your crude drawings, and others like it, just how fanatical they are. I know your true artistic ability is deliberately not on display to illustrate this point.
