Map of Pakistan, now a Facebook-free zone (CIA Factbook, 2008)Cartoons of Muhammad have drawn the ire of Pakistan’s courts, so that country — packed to the rafters as it is with childish, raging lunatic Islamist extremists — has blocked access to Facebook within its borders. The Los Angeles Times reports on this juvenile reaction (WebCite cached article):

It was a Facebook campaign meant to make a stand for free speech. But in Pakistan, a contest encouraging users of the social-networking site to submit caricatures of the prophet Muhammad has been viewed as blasphemous, prompting a court-ordered nationwide ban on the website Wednesday. …

The ruling was triggered by a campaign on Facebook asking users to post images of Islam’s founder on a page called “Everybody Draw Muhammad Day!”

The campaign was aimed at expressing solidarity with the creators of the Comedy Central television show “South Park,” which recently drew the ire of a radical Muslim group for depicting Muhammad in a bear suit during an episode earlier this year.

I blogged about this particular event back when it happened. 'Bombhead' cartoon by K. WestergaardThis contest also follows attacks on Lars Vilks, which I’ve blogged about more than once, and on the heels of continued Muslim outrage over the 2005 Jyllands-Posten cartoons.

Image by Lars Vilks published in Nerkes AllehandaI will, of course, continue my policy of posting some of the cartoons that have so enraged Muslims, as my own act of defiance against them, and to show my own support for free speech around the world. Muslims’ demand that everyone else in the world — Muslim and non-Muslim alike — obey their own metaphysical prohibition against depicting Muhammad, is not only unreasonable, it’s irrational and childish.

There is no amount of reasoning with them on the matter … so I have no intention of trying to reason with them about it. I will simply continue posting the cartoons they find offensive, as long as they keep stamping and fuming over their existence. There is a way to make these cartoons go away … and that’s to stop raging and fuming over their existence. I wonder if Muslims will ever find the fortitude and maturity to follow that strategem?

Image by Lars Vilks published in Nerkes AllehandaIf anyone is unsure of the the immaturity of Islam and the inability and unwillingness of its adherents to accept there are non-Muslims in the world, we have another example, in an attack on a cartoonist over his depiction of Mohammad, as reported by the (UK) Telegraph (WebCite cached article):

Lars Vilks, who depicted the Prophet Mohammad with the body of a dog in 2007, said he was headbutted by a man sitting on the front row as he spoke at the University of Uppsala, about 44 miles from Stockholm.

“He head-butted me and I fell into the wall and lost my glasses,” Mr Vilks said. He added he was unharmed.

A spokesman for Uppsala police said about 20 people tried to attack Mr Vilks after interrupting his lecture, adding that the police had to intervene to stop them. Two people were detained.

Yes, folks — this is the “Religion of Peace” in action!

Vilks’s cartoons were not directly connected with the the Jyllands-Posten Muhammad cartoon controversy, but in the minds of some, they have fused. 'Bombhead' cartoon by K. WestergaardAnd as I blogged just a few months ago, there are lots of Muslims who are still hung up on those, too.

Isn’t it time for Muslims worldwide to finally just grow up, already, and get over this notion that they get to control what other people say and do?

In defiance of these violent hyperreligionists, I’ve included one of Vilk’s cartoons in this post, above, as well as the “Bombhead” cartoon by Danish cartoonist Kurt Westergaard. I plan to post these cartoons every time I have to address this controversy, in protest against the violence perpetrated by Muslims against others, because of them. The more you guys rage, fume, attack and destroy, the more these cartoons get posted. See how that works?
