If Charlie Hebdo Won’t Draw Muhammed, Who Will?

A short while after the Islamist terrorist attack in Chattanooga, it came out that the French magazine Charlie Hebdo—its staff members the victim of an Islamist terrorist attack in France—will no longer draw cartoons of Islam’s prophet, Muhammad. “We have drawn Muhammad to defend the principle that one can draw whatever they want,” Laurent Sourisseau, the magazine’s editor, said. “We’ve done our job. We have defended the right to caricature.”

    When only a handful of individuals or organisations are willing to caricature Islam’s Prophet then groups like ISIS can pick them off and close them done 1 by 1. It needs a major action by large numbers of individuals and organisations to resist successfully.
    How about a deal – stop murderous terrorism and we’ll stop the caricatures.

      With all due respect, I think we have enough examples (arguably, over the course of 1400 years) to realize that compromise is impossible with these “people”, however much we might wish that it was possible. I’ve come to the point where my position is, accept western laws, values and customs, or get out (or be forced out).

    Who is in charged of the Magazine now, could be a Muslim I guess that decides what to do and what not to do.

  • Islam is nothing more than an odd ball distributed type of warfare. Islam incites countless Muslims to commit random violence in the name of Islam.

    We need the reversal of this process to deal with Islam. We need countless cartoonists to publish thousands of “Hebdo” like cartoons on a daily basis. Muslims need to see these daily.

    Molly Norris in Seattle tried to get this going by creating “everyone draw Mohammed day”.

    Draw Muhammad cartoons, speak up, Islam cannot stand the heat.

    If I were going to work as a Mohammed cartoonist, I would require a loaded handgun on the desk next to the pencil. That scenario is not possible in France and other locales.

    Cartoonist Lars Vilks sleeps with an axe next to his bed. That’s pathetic. The man needs some firepower, not some dinky hatchet.
