Cartoons for Allah

The Religion of Peace™ shows, once again, that its first course of action is always violence.

The controversy over Danish caricatures of Prophet Muhammad escalated Monday as gunmen seized an EU office in Gaza and Muslims appealed for a trade boycott of Danish products. Denmark called for its citizens in the Middle East to exercise vigilance.

Denmark-based Arla Foods, which has been the target of a widespread boycott in the Middle East, reported that two of its employees in Saudi Arabia were beaten by angry customers. Aid groups, meanwhile, pulled workers out of Gaza, citing the threat of hostilities.

The 12 drawings — published in a Danish paper in September and in a Norwegian paper this month — included an image of the prophet wearing a turban shaped as a bomb with a burning fuse. Islamic tradition bars any depiction of the prophet, even respectful ones, out of concern that such images could lead to idolatry.

Danish government officials have expressed regret over the furor but have refused to get involved, citing freedom of expression. The Jyllands-Posten newspaper has refused to apologize for publishing the drawings and has said it did not mean to insult Islam.

Okay, it’s time for action.  Everyone break out your favorite drawing program.  Draw me the most offensive picture of Muhammad you can think of and email it to me.  It doesn’t have to be a good picture, it just has to clearly show Muhammad in the most degrading, insulting situation you can think of.  Send it to me, and I’ll post all of them.  I’m at work right now, I’ll get mine up later tonight.

If Muslims want to get pissed off, let’s give them something to be pissed off about.

Update: I had originally written “Allah” instead of “Muhammad.” My mistake.  Who the hell can keep track of all these different names?  Just be offensive.
