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.

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
Wow, Quran quotes! Can you read me some Ron L. Hubbard next?
you can search Google my friend as u can see i put the name of the chapter which we call surat and its number
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.
i hope my friend your not from those who AllAH said about them
""Allah has set a seal upon their hearts and upon their hearing, and over their vision is a veil. And for them is a great punishment""

Surat Al-Baqarah verse 7
