How cartoons of prophet turned into "a volcano"

Full story: Seattle Times

The global furor over cartoons of the prophet Muhammad started one day last September, when newspaper editor Flemming Rose smelled a good story.

As an American-Muslim, I am very saddened and deeply troubled by the senseless violence that has stemmed in parts of the Middle East and Asia following peaceful demonstrations. The Qu'ran teaches Muslims to use wisdom and respectful arguments when being confronted with those who disrespect the faith. The death threats, burning of property, and killing are extreme unwarranted reactions that go against the teachings of Islam. Unfortunately, this whole situation gives more fuel to the extremists on all sides to make divisions of the nations even further.

There is an issue of insensitivity regarding showing an image of the Holy Prophet, but it goes beyond that. Muslims are offended and highly insulted at the depiction of Prophet Muhammad as a terrorist. Time and time again, several Muslim leaders have condemned terrorism and Al-Qaeda and have tried to show the world that Bin Laden and his followers have twisted and perverted the message of Islam. Yet, many in the media around the world try to portray all Muslims and Islam as anti-west and pro-terrorism. This outrageous cartoon and blatant disregard for the sanctity and holiness of Prophet Muhammad serves as a slap in the face to 1.5 billion Muslims worldwide.

This is a case of slander in the highest degree. What does Prophet Mohammed (peace be upon him) have to do with the un-Islamic acts of Al-Qaeda or terrorism? If a newspaper published slanderous and malicious analogies of Jesus, Mary, Moses, Ghandi, Mother Theresa or the Pope, there would be world wide outrage. People need to understand that this goes beyond merely a right of freedom of press or freedom of speech.

All praises are due to Allah, and may Allah exalt the status of the Messenger of Allah, and that of his family and his companions, and may He grant them peace.

As for what follows:

Some newspapers and other forms of media have spread hurtful, vicious information that could only emanate from the jealous, arrogant enemies of Islam and its Prophet (may Allah raise his rank and grant him peace).

That conduct comprises a calumniation of Muhammad, the Messenger of Allah and a distortion of his message by jealous individuals and Christian organizations, as well as envious and irresponsible columnists, like those who write for the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten.

Its writers mocked the best of Mankind and the most distinguished of the Messengers, Muhammad (may Allah raise his rank and grant him peace), the likes of whose nobility, honor, justice, and manners the earth has never known of. Neither has it known of a more complete and comprehensive message than his, nor a more just and merciful one.

It is a message that embraces belief in all of the prophets and messengers, honoring them and defending them from calumniation and defamation. It has also preserved an accurate history of the prophets, including Jesus and Moses. So whoever disbelieves in Muhammad and speaks of him in a derogatory manner has disbelieved in all of the prophets and disparaged all of them.

Recently, some uncivilized miscreants made fun of the Prophet, drawing various pictures of him. Twelve despicable pictures, one of them portrayed him (may Allah raise his rank and grant him peace) wearing a turban resembling a bomb on his head.

We say to these criminals and their envious supporters in Europe and America: You are blaming others for your very own crimes!

Let it be known that never did Muhammad (may Allah raise his rank and grant him peace), nor his righteous successors or any of his honorable companions, ever establish factories for even the most primitive of weapons, like swords and spears, let alone atomic bombs, long-range missiles, or any other weapon of mass destruction.

Never did Muhammad (may Allah raise his rank and grant him peace) build a single weapon factory. Rather, he was sent as a mercy for the entire creation, to guide all Mankind towards happiness in their worldly lives and in their hereafter, such that they fulfill their Creator’s right upon them, for it is He who created them to worship Him alone. Whoever rejects this is truly a criminal deserving punishment in this life and the next, by the Lord of all that exists, the Creator of this universe and its Master.

As for you O Westerners, claimants of civilization, you have constitutions and statutes that destroy upright moral character and permit all kinds of forbidden acts, the likes of fornication and homosexuality, as well as usury which destroys the economies of entire nations, and the eating of improperly slaughtered animals (dead meats) and pork, something that causes the loss of concern for women's values, and thus a man does not feel protective of his wife, sister, or daughter, and thus she fornicates with or intimately befriends whomever she pleases. These are some of the means which lead to ruin, and they have been prohibited in all of the prophetic messages.

Well, once again we see multiple violent tantrums from the Religion of Permanent Offence. Some things never change, do they?
Once again we see Islam self-detonate (if you'll pardon the expression) and show once again why it's about as welcome on this planet as an asteroid. Once again we see thousands of Islamic nutcases take time out from beating up their wives to show their sensitive side. How? By smashing up the towns they live in, egged on by clerical ignoramuses whose motives are even lower than the literacy level of their followers. And once again we in the civilised world are being urged to censor ourselves out of respect for a religion that violates the human rights of half the people on the planet and that doubles as a political ideology indistinguishable from Nazism. It would be funny if it wasn't so obscene.
Or should that be the other way round? To call these riots infantile and imbecilic is to give them a dignity they don't deserve. They can only be described as Islamic. Let me get this straight. We're supposed to show tolerance and respect for a religion that doesn't know the meaning of either word and goes out of its way to prove it every day? We're supposed to amend our values to accommodate a religion that accommodates nothing and nobody? Dream on, people. It's not going to happen because with Islam it's always a one way street. We've learned that lesson the hard way. We can't afford any more tolerance and respect. We've been sucked dry.
And we've become weary of manufactured Islamic grievance. It's such a bore that now when we hear some bearded buffoon or some bag-headed bimbo telling us how offended they are we can't even be bothered to laugh any more. Not even when the Turkish prime minister hilariously demands that "Islamophobia" now be made a crime against humanity, when, given the evidence, there's a much stronger case for making Islam a crime against humanity. Besides, Turkey is already hypocritically guilty of one of the worst crimes against humanity in history, the Armenian Genocide, a crime it doesn't even have the balls to admit to.
When Muslims start showing the same level of outrage about things that are genuinely offensive, like the thousands of women and girls who are murdered, mutilated and raped every year in their countries then we might take them a bit more seriously. As it is, there is nothing on this planet less deserving of sympathy or respect than Muslim outrage. Indeed, there's something deeply comical about it. It's so contrived and so cringeingly un-self-aware it's impossible to take seriously, even if we wanted to, and nobody in their right mind wants to any more.
There was a time when Islam was given the benefit of the doubt by many people in the West. Now we think it's poison and we wish we had never heard of it because twenty years of baseless grievance mongering and kneejerk offence have shown us this religion for what it really is, and now we don't like it, we don't trust it, and we are never going to respect it. And we don't care how Muslims feel about that. Everything is an insult to this religion. Everything causes offence. Well, nobody gives a damn any more, people. You've done it to death. You've killed the goose that laid the golden egg. So now, if you're an offended Muslim, go stick your head in the oven for all we care. And if you think that if you keep up the violence the West will eventually cave in, it's not going to happen.

Should we ban free speech then?

Pat Condell is spot on. The hypocrisy that comes from perpetually offended Muslims (more than one by a long shot but definitely less than all - there are quite a few Muslims out there who can see past the hate, try their best to fit in outside their ghettoes and campaign against the hatred that many Muslim communities are saturated with and are therefore widely hated in their communities) is quite insane. You only have to look at the hate that comes out of numerous Arab countries - it really does speak for itself. Muslims in Arab countries are taught from childhood to hate Jews - not Israelis, not Zionists, Jews.

Holocaust denial, for example, is mainstream on Arab television networks and anti-Semitism is enormously popular in almost all Arab countries. I suggest you go to MEMRI TV and educate yourself.

We've allowed to let a monster settle in Europe and, unless Islam seriously reforms to fit in with Western society (I suspect that many Muslims actually are nominally religious at best, especially in the West, but would be in danger if they publicly questioned or announced their disagreement with Islam, even with their own families), things aren't going to end well.

I do hope there are far, far more "offensive" cartoons, movies, articles, the lot. If we give up this battle for free speech, we'll end up with a Saudi-style society and God help us then.

Exemplary and very truthfully expressed. Freedom of expression has in many cases been twisted by religious fanatics to promote their ideology in such a way it breeds contempt, not only by us but by the good Muslims who want to distance themselves from it. Religion must never be abused in such a way that it infests the mind for the wrong purpose, to gain dominance whereby the roots spread out to strangle the purest forms of life.

The majority of Muslim's are unquestionably decent law abiding people who mix well, share their love openly and make wonderful neighbours, my own experience would back that up any day of the week.

'How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men. Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities - but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world....

Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilisation of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilisation of ancient Rome.'

You barking up the wrong tree my wee murhumna its the other guy the devil your backing he loves what islam is doing to people everyday.

Nice Churchillian flair in describing indelibly the main effects of a political ideology which masquerades as a religion and expands through war, violence and coercion. It was self evident to men like Samuel Adams, de Tocqueville, C.S. Lewis, Churchill and others, that Islam as a political movement was anti-civilizational. The basic tenets of the Koran and Hadiths stand for nothing more than the establishment of a world-wide caliphate ruled by the dictums of 7th century Arab paganism and indeed ‘no stronger retrograde force exists in the world.' Islam is not peaceful, it is not spiritual, and it is not modern. It is the pagan evocation of fascism.

They did on quite a number of times offensive films and programs some calling Jesus a homosexial some deneying his exsistance. The diffeance is that we used the off button on the TV or dont buy the publication thus depriving the company of advertising revenue. The islamic reponce was somewhat differant. muslims dont need a slap in the face by non muslims the do it to themselves every day.
There is more than ample evidence in the koran that it is not a religion of peace especialy the hadiths relating to the non believer . It is at its worst a political idiology with a striking simularity to the nazis. When the spotlight is turned on mohamed it reviels a historicaly dubious charicter.
You are fortunate you live in a country that tolerates religous minorities ask the Copts in egypt about the relidgion of perment offence islam.
