Geert Wilders revives contest for cartoons that mock Muhammad (PBUH)
“Freedom of speech must prevail over violence and Islamic fatwas,” the leader of the largest opposition party in the Dutch parliament wrote.

Wilders cancelled a similar contest in August last year after police arrested a man who had threatened to kill him over his plan.

At the time, plans to hold the contest prompted large demonstrations in Pakistan, organised by Islamist party Tehreek-e-Labbaik, which called on Islamist countries to sever all ties with the   Netherlands .

Images of the Prophet Muhammad are traditionally forbidden in Islam as idolatrous.

In 2005, Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten published cartoons of Muhammad that sparked demonstrations across the Muslim world as well as several attempts to kill either its editor or cartoonist Kurt Westergaard.

Ten years later, in Paris, a pair of  Islamist gunmen killed 12 people at the offices of the magazine   Charlie Hebdo , also known for publishing satirical cartoons of Muhammad.

Yet they have no problem with their false prophet wedding and bedding a nine year old.  Drawing a picture of him is easy.  Just draw a big *which stands for asshole.

Krishna!!!  Do you have 24/7 armed guard protection?  Are you in hiding like Salmann Rushdie?  Do you not realize that your life is now endangered?  The savages could be looking for you right now.

Images of the Prophet Muhammad are traditionally forbidden in Islam as idolatrous.

For example:

Illustration showing Mohammed (on the right) preaching his final sermon to his earliest converts, on Mount Arafat near Mecca; taken from a medieval-era manuscript of the astronomical treatise  The Remaining Signs of Past Centuries  by the Persian scholar  al-Biruni ; currently housed in the collection of  the Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris  ( Manuscrits Arabe 1489 fol. 5v ). '

This scene was popular among medieval Islamic artists, and several nearly identical versions of this drawing (such as this one  [shown in detail below] and  this one ) were made in the Middle Ages.

Yes, images of Mohammed (PBUH) are totally forbidden by Islam!

TOTALLY!

As well, Jews do not have images of God in their synagogues, but if a person were to do a cartoon of God's image, they would not be hunted and murdered.  Judaism is so much older than Islam, yet more civilized - no fatwas for drawing images, no honour killings, no death sentences for blasphemy or apostates, etc.

Not to worry-- Islam is the Religion of Peace!

The savages are always looking for me! (It seems like almost every time I seed an article here, one or more of them will direct some sort of nasty personal attack at me!)

I suppose its at least partially my fault--- my generally dignified bearing, as well as the fact that I am quite cultured and sophisticated compared to the majority of the hoi-polloi, leave me open to personal attacks! 

Oh... poor me.

But, even in the face of outlandish criticism..I shall survuve!

23.   Fomosexual

That's an interesting word-- I never heard it before.

Was wondering..why "fomo"?

Than I realized..."FOMO" is currently a popular slang term on Wall Street. (Wall St folks love all sorts of trite terms, cliches, aphorisms, etc).Its relatively recent.

It stands for "Fear of Missing Out".. (Its the reason why many inexperienced traders still buy a stock after its been going up a long time and has really gotten too expensive. But some people chase these overbought stocks due to "fear of missing out").

So then what's a "Fomoxexual" you ask?

Here's a link.

(Actually I kina knew you wouldn't ask-- but I was just trying to make conversation...)

Now that I've got this new avatar, I thought it might be fun to engage in some "Shaggy Dog Stories".

Heh :-)
