In one of the most ridiculous acts I have seen in a long time, A British teacher, Gillian Gibbons, in Sudan, allowed her students to name a teddy bear Muhammad and she ended up receiving a jail sentence of two weeks in Sudan.
After some public relations damage control by two two Muslim members of Britain's House of Lords, Nazir Ahmed and Sayeeda Warsi, who had traveled to the predominantly Muslim African nation to lobby for her release, the President of Sudan, Omar al-Bashir issued a pardon and she is being released.
The first sign that this type of ridiculousness was getting out of control was when a Danish Cartoonist decided to use 12 editorial cartoons depicting muhammad in the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten on 30 September 2005.
The outrage began, signs calling for the beheading of anyone that insults Islam were held up at protest.
The outrage continued with violent protests when the cartoons were reprinted in 50 different papers in countries around the world:
This led to protests across the Muslim world, some of which escalated into violence with police firing on the crowds (resulting in more than 100 deaths, altogether), including setting fire to the Norwegian and Danish Embassies in Syria, storming European buildings, and desecrating the Danish, Norwegian and German flags in Gaza City. While a number of Muslim leaders called for protesters to remain peaceful, other Muslim leaders across the globe, including Mahmoud al-Zahar of Hamas, issued death threats.Various groups, primarily in the Western world, responded by endorsing the Danish policies, including "Buy Danish" campaigns and other displays of support for free speech in Denmark.
A piece of advice for Radical Muslims: Get over yourselves.
You can go to any search engine and type in Jesus cartoons, or any religious name then cartoon and up will pop dozens or hundreds because even though it is rude to insult another persons religion, free speech and freedom of press allow humans to be rude when they want to be.
Learn what the freaking word "tolerant" means and move on.
Now I see The Hague is pulling art because they are scared it may "offend" some Muslims.
The city museum of The Hague has decided not to include in an exhibition a work of art that may offend Muslims, it was reported on Monday.
The picture, made by Iranian artist Sooreh Hera, is entitled Adam and Ewald and shows two gay men wearing masks of the Muslim prophet Mohammed and his son-in-law Ali.
It is part of a photoseries the Gemeentemuseum has included in the 7up exhibition due to open on December 15.
The Gemeentemuseum's director Wim van Krimpen told reporters the museum is interested in purchasing Hera's complete series, which he called "high quality works of art".
However, he added he will not exhibit Adam and Ewald in the next few years because "certain people in our society might perceive it as offensive".
Hera responded she was "disappointed" and added "apparently a Muslim minority decides what will be on display in the museum".
A British childrens author is renaming a character in a book because they are scared that the mole they named muhammad will offend Muslims.
Kes Gray said the case of British teacher Gillian Gibbons, who has been jailed in Sudan for allowing her class of primary school children to name a teddy bear Mohammed, had prompted him to postpone a reprint of his book, Who's Poorly Too, and change the name.
“I had no idea at all of the sensitivities of the name Mohammed until seeing this case in Sudan,” Gray told The Sunday Times.
“As soon as I saw the news I thought, 'Oh gosh, I've got a mole called Mohammed - this is not good'.”
Of all the idiotic decisions, that takes the cake.
When are people going to get a backbone and a spine and say ENOUGH of this nonsense?
I, for one, have had enough, so without further ado, I found a photo of a stuffed Toy Yorkie that looks like my two I got at Victorias Secret.
Meet muhammad, my puppies sleep partner.
One of these days folks are going to learn that they cannot dictate what other people do and say and many of us are sick and tired of seeing a world kowtow to idiocy.
If you don't like it, there is an X in the top right hand corner, CLICK IT, but don't bother complaining because some of us do not care what offends you just as you do not care about offending us.
