Mohammed Comic Strip 6: Taking a Hammer to a Lake

You know, I hadn’t really planned a sixth installation (1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5) in our series of Prophet Mohammed Cartoons, but in the last few days we learned that Jihad Jane and some people in Ireland tried to kill someone who drew a nasty sketch of Mohammed, while the multinational law firm of Ahmed Zaki Yamani has been threatening defamation lawsuits against newspapers unless they not only remove all traces of images of Mohammed, but also promise never “to make public any defamatory drawings or materials concerning the Prophet Mohammed…peace be upon him” ever again.

When religious fundamentalists use threats and intimidation to enforce censorship of ideas contrary to their strain of religious thought, I feel it’s important to demonstrate that their threats not only won’t work, but actually will backfire, leading to more of the comics they aspire to stamp out. That’s why Irregular Times features Mohammed Comic Strip #6 today.
