    Muslims are pissed about these cartoons:

    I came across this article from MSNBC...apparently some Danish newspaper published some cartoons that insulted those of the muslim faith.



    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/11097877/


    Could you imagine what it would be like if the politicians in the US were as sensitive to humor? I'd be arrested for having Bill Maher's audiobook on my iPod.




    Edit: it looks like some of the original cartoons were edited. Post em' if you find them.


    I like the virgins one. It made me giggle.


    Oh, and death threats: http://www.brusselsjournal.com/node/540

      Didn't they threaten to kill Salmon Rushdie too?

        I'd be pissed too. The artwork is pathetic!

            Ok...well then sure, that would be offensive to me. Not because I think sacrilege isn't funny, but because I would suspect the intent of the cartoonist was strictly to piss off Muslims.

            That said, the only remotely funny one is "Stop we ran out of virgins".

              They're threatening to boycott both Norway and Denmark over this because the governments won't censor it.

              So far, Denmark has essentially told them to fuck off but I think Norway backed down. So much for the days of the Vikings.

                  Well in Islam, drawing the prophet is considered blasphemy. So i can understand it kind of.

                      Yeah but the particular malice seen in some of these drawings is kind of creepy.

                      Ive had people talk to me on the net saying im evil because im muslim.

                        I have about as much sympathy for people who would put a bounty on thsoe cartoonists' heads as I do for neo-nazis. Europe really needs to let these people know that death and bomb threats as a response to political cartoons are unacceptable.

                        Albert Brooks recently made a movie called "Looking for humor in the Muslim world", critics don't seem to like it because apparently he didn't find any.

                        Ahmed, maybe it's just because I'm used to American style political comics, but those are really tame pieces. I understand it's blasphemous to depict the prophet or alah- there was this one movie made in the 70's or 80's about the history of Islam where Mohammad was played from the camera's POV to avoid depicting him at all-, but some people need to understand that blasphemy is not a crime in a society that values freedom of speech and religion; in this controversy I only see one thing that is utterly unacceptable and that is that cartoonists are having their lives threatened. These comics would not be all over the internet if the response from certain groups wasn't "die infidel".

                          Tell me you dont find this offensive, saying an entire group of people are evil:

                          And look at how this black guy is drawn, doesnt it bug you?

                          http://www.superdickery.com/propaganda/15.html


                          EDIT: I agree with the above though. People who make bomb threats are stupid.


                          Though, neo nazis stereo type groups of people into generalizations. What are these artists doing?

                            There is absolutely no comparison between WWII propaganda and current political satire.

                            Furthermore while that old stuff is distasteful it hardly warrants putting a bounty on the artists' heads.

                              Thats not the point, the point is that, if a black guy saw that, he would be offended.

                              If a japanese man saw what Dr.Suess was drawing, he would nto be happy.



                              While some of the comics arn't offensive, some are essentially saying that muslims are all fucking nuts.

                              Some of us are, do doubt, but so are neo-nazis and others.
