Where's Mohammed?

The Washington Post declined to publish the October 3rd, 2010 Non-Sequitur cartoon. The reason given by the editor, “It seemed a deliberate provocation without a clear message.” He added that “the point of the joke was not immediately clear.”

At best, this reveals that editor "doesn't get it" when the joke is painfully obvious to anyone who has read the news over the last nine years.

At worst, he's lying.

Michelle Malkin, and CDR Salamander cover it, but Greg Gutfeld, as reported by NewsBusters, nails it

"...why is it that the media keeps reminding us that we shouldn’t exaggerate the threat of a small group of radicals, but then completely changes tact when it comes to their own personal safety?

...if the average Joe expresses anxiety over Islamic fundamentalism, they’re called Islamophobes. But if an editor removes a comic in which Mohammed isn’t even present, that’s not honest to Allah Islamophobia?

Look, the media can’t have it both ways. They cannot criticize the public for concerns over Islam and then pull this stunt over a fear they may get stabbed in front of a Starbucks. If their governing principle in the newsroom is fear, then they should admit it and get the hell off our backs for feeling pretty much the same way."

Here's the comic in Question and a link to the Non-Sequitur site

Facebook shuts down "Everybody Draw Mohammed"

According to AP
"In response to our protest, Facebook has tendered their apology and informed us that all the sacrilegious material has been removed from the URL," said Najibullah Malik, secretary of Pakistan's information technology ministry, referring to the technical term for a Web page.

Facebook assured the Pakistani government that "nothing of this sort will happen in the future," Malik said.

Officials from the website could not immediately be reached for comment. They said earlier the contents of the "Everybody Draw Mohammed Day!" page did not violate Facebook's terms.


Oranous Young Mohammed

According to the godweb site, "An Iranian woman artist Oranous (who is a Muslim and lives in Tehran) created this iconic painting of a young Muhammed and is selling it online. Though this would seem to violate Islamic and Iranian law, some suggest that this particular painting is not forbidden because it depicts a young Muhammed before he was visited by the Angel Gabriel, which means that at this stage in his life he is not yet the Prophet." is down at the time of this posting. A victim of censorship or just forgot to update her credit card on file with godaddy?

Alien Travel Guide Mohammed

According to the Alien Travel Guide, "Mohammed can be compared to the Christian figure of Jesus Christ. This painting, found in Turkey, depicts the prophet Mohammed. Like Christ, Mohammed was sent by God, as a messenger to the people of the world. This is the story of Mohammed and his struggles to relieve his land from evil practices and suffering. As Mohammed grew up he had the opportunity to hear much about the Jewish and Christian faith."
