Some People Don't Get the Idea

Three men were arrested in a plot to kill the artist of a Danish cartoon that portrayed Mohammad. The point of the cartoon is that radical fundamentalism can be a dangerous thing. Clearly these men didn't appreciate the irony.

When the cartoon was first printed, it caused an international uproar. American newspapers, out of either fear or perceived respect for Muslims, wouldn't reprint the cartoon, but only describe it.

Well, here it is:

















If the cartoon itself didn't make the point, the actions of these men did.

Hello,
..." The point of the cartoon is that radical fundamentalism can be a dangerous thing" ... i seriously think that they made a wrong point by portraying Prophet Muhammad instead of a terrorist.

its like portraying Jesus for Medieval atrocities committed by the Church in Europe. Does that sound a good point?

I say, put Jesus next to him killing people with a cross and make them a team of action heroes.

Regardless of your religion, if your God is all-powerful, It can take a few shots or crude cartoons.
