A New Mohammed Cartoon

Well, more of a sketch, but it is enough to set the Muslims off, ya know

(By Lars Vilks)

From The Local (Sweden may be known for hot blondes, but, geez, let’s work on the paper’s title, folks)

Pakistan has added its voice to that of Iran in condemning the publication of a cartoon of the Prophet Muhammad in newspaper Nerikes Allehanda. Sweden has told Pakistan it is sorry if the publication hurt Muslim feelings.

The protest concerned a cartoon by artist Lars Vilks, which showed the head of Muhammad on the body of a dog. In a statement, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Islamabad said Pakistan condemned the publication “in the strongest terms.”

“Regrettably, the tendency among some Europeans to mix the freedom of expression with an outright and deliberate insult to 1.3 billion Muslims in the world is on the rise,” the statement said.

According to the Pakistani statement, Holst said the Swedish government “fully shared the views of the Muslim community” and called the publication on August 18th “unfortunate.”

Swedish Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Anna Björkander told The Local it had been a “misunderstanding” on the part of the Pakistanis to conclude that the government fully shared the views of the Muslim community.

Björkander added, however: “The Chargé d’Affaires said he was sorry if the publication had hurt Muslim feelings.”

But, you know it is OK to do all sorts of things to offend Christians, like the cross in a jar of urine, and hey, how about an exhibit that “features a statue of the Virgin Mary in a burqa and a holographic image of Jesus that transforms into … Osama bin Laden.” (via Captain’s Quarters)

But, wait, it gets better!

(Björkander) also said that Holst had told the Pakistani official that freedom of the press is strongly protected in the Swedish constitution.

“Otherwise the Swedish government has no opinion on the matter,” she said.

The government has no opinion (except that the government fully shared the views of the Muslim community)

There are supposed to be three sketches. I cannot read Mr. Vilks website (Swedish?), but it looks like the others are here and here. This one is amusing, too. He also features a hook-nosed pig, supposed to represent a modern jew sow.

Moving over to CNS News, they refer to the Danish cartoons, linked in with this one

The ripple effects of the episode are still being felt, with the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC), a 57-member bloc of Islamic states, working to have international institutions outlaw the “defamation of prophets” and combat “Islamophobia.”

But there is no “Christianaphobia” in the Muslim world, right? I mean, just because churches are burned, Bibles are destroyed, Christian converts face the death penalty, Christians must pretty much hide themselves in Muslim countries, no, there is no Christianaphobia.

Dr. Rusty has some more.

Others on the case: Michelle Malkin and Snapped Shot (who has some excellent rage pictures. Will Islamic Rage Boy show up?)

I believe that insulting others does not show the freedom of speech and neither it shows the modernisation in a society. I believe the cartoonist and the government of Sweden are totally crazy. It shows how wild they are.

And how does this show the Muslims, who become violent and burn things over a simple cartoon?

Scandinavia is the epicentre of Hedonistic lifestyle, they are the torch bearers of spineless Christians of the world, they have insulted the prophet of Islam (PBUH) time & again. Christians have always stood 4 endless humiliation & Insult of their Prophet Jesus (PBUH) & his Mother (PBUH) by the Jews. Hence their enmity with Muslims who always respect & revere their prophet Jesus (PBUH) & His mother (PBUH) is unexplainable. Cursed are they who expect Muslims to become spineless like them. Let us not forget the deeds of these immoral shameless, pork eating drunkards.

yeah.. i’m a free speech pro !
it’s not just about Mohammed Cartoon, there’re also lots of Jesus Cartoon and others.
if you’re talking about blasphemy, what about those who are religious that always curse, say something bad about non-believer, something like going to hell, evil, kafir, etc.
that’s a blasphemy too !

The World has been a host to a number of plagues.
But the deadliest plague of all is the cult of islam.
Islam is not a religion, it is a cult of murder, and invasion of other Countries.
When Muhammad was born, an evil darkness has invaded the world.
Muhammad was the viper in the Garden of Eden.

Until the so-called moderate Muslims stand up around the world and say “no more!”, Islam will be nothing more then a religion of violence and intolerance.

Nobody takes these insane “muslims” seriously. I know of not a single person who thinks of anything but the lowest possible form of human when the word Muslim is mentioned. Look at what they are doing to their people. They are making their religion and beliefs a four letter word the wolrd over. Keep it up! Soon you will be the largest group of completely alienated people on the planet.

As Assyrian christian, born in iraq, i do find muslims hypocites. They anger over a stupid cartoon, yet they are killing the christians in Iraq and majority of islamic countries just for being christians and given 3 options.

1 – Convert to islam.
2 – Or Pay taxes according to islamic laws for being a none muslim.
3 – Leave the country.

800,000 Iraqi Assyrian Chrisitans have left Iraq. Depciting any religious icon is better than butchering children, women, and men. they can protest all they want, a christian or a jew wasn’t allowed to display their cross or any religious icon.

I was against this insulting Muslims with cartoons until I read the meaning behind it. In the USA, our news usually doesn’t sugar-coat and/or try to hide what groups of Muslims do/say. In many parts of Europe, it’s totally different. For instance, in certain places in France, women/girls could not even walk out their doors without being gang raped by Muslim immigrants. They felt any women/girls wearing any kind of makeup, who had ever gone out on a date with a man/boy, or was not wearing a veil, was okay to rape. The French newspapers would either not report these rapes or report them without stating it was only Muslim immigrants who were gang raping these girls. I knew about this, by the way, before most French people knew about it. It was only a few years ago when two of the girls living in some of these places had gotten out of them and wrote books about it that the french public found out about it.

I used to think it was just because the Europeans are politically correct extremists, but I think that many are also intimidated by Muslim agression. Many journalists will not write the true stories because of being intimidated by these Muslim agressive immigrants and that is why they are making these cartoons. It makes all of the sense in the world to me. Sweden is really hit hard with these Muslim agressive immigrants, who have taken over Sweden’s 3rd largest city, Malbo. It because Swedes have tried to be so appeasing to Muslims and because they have not printed all of the things that go on with their Muslim immigrants that they are moving out of their home country “in droves” and just letting Muslims take Sweden over according to a Swedish Newspaper.

Osama bin Laden declared WAR on Jews, Crusaders and our allies in February 1998 – period. READ his declaration! He calls for the murder of all military AND civilians. His islamomaniacs are living in the 7th century and want to establish their world-wide caliphate!
WAKE UP NOW!

Someone should find a video of 2 dogs humping, and superimpose His Holiness the Child Molestor’s face on one of them. That would get the barbarian degenerates riled up for sure!

Why the Messenger of God. Is this weapons. Even this is the insolence and reprimand religions is not freedom of expression but a lack of respect for others feelings. Only Allah is the greatest creature with the face of the earth. Carp and I do not blame you, but your government and your fathers who did not informing how to coexist with others and peace to you in end
