from kozmo Why are you all not able to accept the fact that mainstream Islam has become this fanatical? How come some people are unable to accep that the xenophobia exists only within the Mulsim community?
I for one laugh at the very notion that Islam prohibits the likeness of Mohammed from being portrayed for fear of idolotry.

Im honestly going to make up some custom shirts with these Cartoons on them. If not these cartoons, I will depict "Ahalla" or how ever you spell it in some other way relating to this story.
This is retarded and at this point I just feel like pissing these pull-starts off. I hope it some ways that the assasination takes place and this leads to the extinction of the middle east via Nuke, or gasoline filled bombs, or something else hellish.

The Holy War Against Salman Rushdie
Turning on the basic meaning of the Arabic word Islam, which is "submission," he suggests that its followers have been terrorized into belief. Worse still, a subversive reading of the life of Mohammed underlies Rushdie's novel. The very title recalls a set of suras, or scriptural verses, that Mohammed is believed to have deleted from the Qur'an, Islam's holy book, after deciding that he had composed them under Satan's influence.
In early 2005, Khomeini's fatwa against Rushdie was reaffirmed by Iran's spiritual leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, in a message to Muslim pilgrims making the annual pilgrimage to Mecca. Iran has rejected requests to withdraw the fatwa on the basis that only the person who issued it may withdraw it.
