New drawing of Mohammed


"How can we advance in this crusade
with Their lack of solidarity?!!"


Remember you saw it first here! The picture that really got the Islamist fundamentalists going. This cartoon was published today in Visão(*) a Portuguese weekly magazine. And boy is it politically incorrect. I love it.

Just look at this drawing. Allah/God and Mohammed sitting on a cloud, symbolizing heaven, reading Jyllandsposten (the Danish newspaper starting the whole thing) together and laughing their hearts out. Presumably they are looking at the cartoons. One of the cartoons is actually on the frontpage and can be seen. Also notice God is wearing a medallion with Arab writings. I do believe it is Mohammed and God. Though it could be Allah and God, but the common understanding is that God and Allah is the same deity.

Underneath the cloud fires are burning symbolizing hell and maybe also our mundane earth. In hell we have a fanatical Islamist suicide bomber - notice the bombs around his waist - holding a sword and looking to heaven complaining he gets no solidarity in this crusade. Crusade at least a double entendre of course. The terrorist, for that he seems to be, is nearly completely cowered with only his hands, eyes and mouth showing. He wears a green headband, green being considered by Muslims the most pure color - and also the color of terror organizations such as Hamas.

This is the most wonderful blasphemy – no piety here. Allah and Mohammed both drawn with their faces fully visible and laughing hard to tears, no less, in spite of their Muslim subject's trouble on Earth. The fanatical obviously on route to hell. Why are they laughing? Because the situation, the Islamists, and the cartoons are all ridiculous? Maybe all of those or more.

I wonder what will happen now? Portugal is now obviously also a country involved having a drawing of its own. Only 4 of the original 12 cartoons have been published in Portugal by a newspaper, Público, the 1st of February I just found out. But those were the Danish cartoons. Now Portugal has one by itself. The government can not be happy. I wonder, if the Iranians still think, Portugal is the country in Europe with the most correct reaction?
(*) I read this magazine, which is rather left wing, to get a broad coverage. But once again I get surprised in this crisis of freedom. Some people I never would have thought would battle for freedom, do. And others I admired and were sure would do battle for freedom, don't, some even favor censorship and submission. In the time of crisis you always learn who you can count on, I suppose.

BTW. I got to wonder. Are Muslims allowed to draw Allah?

He us the same as our god...

Are we allowed to draw our God then, if you are not allowed to draw Allah.

And what about Jesus?

I think that the saying on Allah is 'No God but Allah'. It's too short to include "His Final Messenger is Mo".

After reading that appalling report on Norway's groveling at jihadwatch.org, I'm glad to find a European who is not part of that choir of fools.

von,
"BTW. I got to wonder. Are Muslims allowed to draw Allah? He us the same as our god..Are we allowed to draw our God then, if you are not allowed to draw Allah. And what about Jesus?"

I know exactly what you are saying. I have been asking the same questions to many muslims. The following is from a Pakistani Muslim Harvard PhD guy from Boston, Mass.

I will specifically check with a few scholars, but here is my tentative assessment:

1. Koran is a book of principles and guidance - and it never claims to embody all specific instructions on all religious issues. On this issue (of Prophet's caricatures), it is easy to deduce from some basics notions mentioned in Koran. For instance, there are specific verses telling Muslims to respect and revere the Prophet more than anything else - more than parents, family and kids. So it can be inferred that anything (expressions, writings, pictures) through which the Prophet is disrespected is forbidden for Muslims.

In case of Allah (God), Koran clearly forbids adherents of Islam from even deliberating on the shape and form of Allah. I will be able to find the verse in this regard soon.

As mentioned earlier, I will check with a Islamic scholar and respond to you in detail. You may also find the following article relevant to your query:

Best,
Hassan
*****************

Just today, one week later, I asked again about any feedback on the scholarly opinion but nothing yet.

You can see the many obvioous large holes in the above "preliminary" comments.

BTW, I posed my questions as "respectful" depictions. I am going to keep asking until his scholar responds.
