As of this morning, I have voluntarily removed the images of Mohammed comics I have drawn and posted over the past three years — not because of threats, but because of the recent lack of them. As of late, there have not been riots regarding Mohammed Comics or death threats directed at me or any other public creator of Mohammed Comics. As a gesture in recognition of this return to some state of non-violence on the issue, I am taking my drawn images of Mohammed down. After all, the point of the comic was not to anger Muslims, but to pointedly engage in free speech at a time when free speech on the subject of Islam was threatened. This is a freely-made decision on my part, responding to no suggestion or argument or demand or threat that I must remove the Mohammed comics. Should the threat to free speech on the issue of religion arise again, you may expect to see my Mohammed Comics appear again as well.
