Prophet Muhammad cartoons

Muslims are so touchy. Islam is probably the strictest and most idiotic dogma ever allowed to fester in the history of manking. An example being how they consider any printed version of their holy text, the Kuran to be the literal body of their silly god, Allah. Another being their radical insistence that their "prophet", Muhammed not be portrayed by any drawings, which is a pure misconception of their own holy text.

According to the BBC, "There is no specific, or explicit ban on images of Allah or the Prophet Muhammad - be they carved, painted or drawn. However, chapter 42, verse 11 of the Koran does say: "[Allah is] the originator of the heavens and the earth... [there is] nothing like a likeness of Him."

Now the fanatics (and yes, they even more fanatical than even southern Baptists here in the US) are freaking out over some cartoon depictions from a Danish Publisher of mohammed, not only boycotting Danish goods, but having violent protests, and worse, threatening violence against Europeans for reprinting it.

Evil must be opposed, and organized religion is dangerous. As a proud member of the free world, I hereby give you, the prophet they speak of in all his glory.
