Muhammad and stereotypes by Marsmar Muhammad and stereotypes by Marsmar
I think one of the most interesting things about the muhammadoodle controversy is how recent it really is. While Islam has technically always been against depictions of Muhammad: [link] well...mostly against it: [link]
there were still several depictions of the prophets in Europe, many of which are ore insulting than some of the things produced today: [link]
I think the biggest reason we even have this outrage is because it's entirely impossible to be a modern civilization. Back several hundred years ago, someone would be able to draw as many muhammads as they want and there was a good chance that they wouldn't leave that person's home or that it wouldn't be seen as such great of a controversy: [link]
It seems to me only recent that there's been such a strife going on outside of purely Islamic areas. And if you ask me, I'd say it's because Islam (at least in it's absolute purest form) is having a hard time adapting to modern world.

Another interesting thing I've noticed is the various similarities between the depictions of Muhammad. The fact that he's always dressed in stereotypical arab clothing and sporting a beard (unless he's in Hell: [link]) makes him look more like his followers: [link] if anything. Hell, you probably wouldn't know that those were pictures of Muhammad unless otherwise stated. In actuality, the most recognizable picture of Muhammad I've found to have ever been made seems to have been the Danish cartoon's depiction of the prophet with a bomb on his head: [link]

Just something to think about. The website I linked you to several times has many different portrait's, statues, cartoons, etc of Muhammad. It's a pretty interesting place to visit if you want to see how Muhammad's image changes from place to place in different times.

"Islam is bad because it doesn't (adapt to modern world)" .

The thing is , many see this "modernness" as a holy thing that must never be questioned . So what's the difference between that and what you hate so much ? What if I told you your "Modern civilization" is not perfect or even a good thing ? Bottom line : Why should I take whatever you claim is right as right by default as if it's an inspired gospel ?

And keep one thing in mind : Only the image of the great beautiful is corrupted by its enemies . And since Islam is the fastest growing religion even with the ignorance among its people - thanks to the sickening secularization - it clearly means your efforts are futile just as the lord mentioned :

61:8 They want to extinguish the light of Allah with their mouths, but Allah will perfect His light, although the disbelievers dislike it.

So I boldly say it : The sand his shoes step on is worth more than his haters . Peace and prayers upon him .

108:1 
Indeed, We have granted you, [O Muhammad], al-Kawthar. 2 So pray to your Lord and sacrifice [to Him alone]. 3 Indeed, your enemy is the one cut off.

All his haters come and go to be forgotten . And his name remains .

hmm... let's see. not the first one because there wasn't any time bomb, nor the third one because fireworks weren't invented until the Chinese did decades later. Definitely not the middle one because:
1. Prophet Muhammad couldn't read or write.
2. The Qur'an wasn't compiled until at least after a decade since his death.
3. This isn't Muhammad.
4. The teachings of Islam doesn't represent this bullshit drawing.
5. Books were much larger.
That's okay if you don't give a damn about what I say. The feeling's mutual.

GOD says

""He will say, "Remain despised therein and do not speak to Me'' verse 108 Surat Al-Mu'minūn

""Indeed, there was a party of My servants who said, 'Our Lord, we have believed, so forgive us and have mercy upon us, and You are the best of the merciful.'"" verse 109 Surat Al-Mu'minūn

""But you took them in mockery to the point that they made you forget My remembrance, and you used to laugh at them"" verse 110 Surat Al-Mu'minūn

I've already read through the Quran. I think I'll stick with the Homerian Epics and the poetry of Ovid and Catullus. A lot better written and a lot more interesting.

If Allah put a seal on disbelievers hearts then in fact it is is fault that disbelievers go to Hell. Not surprisin since your religion is an evil, vile, sexist, homophobic, racist, barbaric and violent cult.

Please do not speak of other religions like this. Has a Muslim ever said anything bad about Christianity? Please respect other people's religions like they respect yours.

Yes they muslim mock christianity and christians all the time. Stating that all christian women are whores on there ''for muslim only websites like answearingchristianity.com. While they pretend to be friends of the very same women.

Because as it is written in the Quran

''We smile to them in public while our hearts curse them''.

Actually Muslims have said countless bad things about Christianity and other religions. In fact as a Pagan Islam has numerous bad things to say about us. I do not respect religions that advocate sexism, homophobia, barbarity and violence as Islam and the other Abrahamic religions do.

Hmm...I was gonna say the one on the far right since Mo did have a green coat he liked to wear. Then again, the one in the middle is using a more traditional weapon. Since dynamite and bombs had not been invented in Mo's time, I'm gonna go with number 2.

It was interesting that apparently it is not considered a taboo to draw Muhammad if drawing him in his younger years, before he became a prophet.
