Ahh, hell no

This isn't happening: An Indian Court has issued a Fatwa condemning to death the 12 artists who drew the controversial images of the prophet Mohammed. Marie Le Pen, the leader of France's extreemist party the National Front, is amazingly forming an alliance with the Muslim Majority there. Well, they both hate Jews, so they got that in common. I want off of this planet!

It is a pity they did not accuse the Frenchman joining the pig squalling contest as he obviously gave the impression he was presenting Mohammed as a pig :P

Huh? Indian court?? Indian muslims are mostly out of the spotlight & rarely behave like Pakistanis, what happened? damn, its a virus spreading i tell you.

It's a joke, isn't it? One of the cartoons does not even show the Prophet at all but a schoolboy 'Mohammed' instead scolding at the paper. Death threads to cartoonists who do not draw the prophet as well? What's next? Fatwas against people named Mohammed?

THIS is so incredibly offensive that I cannot find words. Now the Muslim community has some explainin' to do. If a Danish newspaper represents Denmark, an Islamic court certainly must represent all Muslims?

The french connection... I just don't get it. I am actually utterly confused. Can someone explain?

A fatwa against anyone called Mohammed? Well, there are those (or were?) who considered it inappropriate to name a son after Mohammed, but their view does not seem to have prevailed. Mohammed is the single most popular name, as far as I can tell. In Dubai I once had to introduce a friend to a group of people. It went as follows: Mohammed, this is Mohammed and Mohammed and Mohammed.

‚Mohammed’ might be an adequate name for a male, but do not risk to name a horse ‘Mohammed’.
Three years ago, the following had happened nearby a small German town:
A local newspaper wrote a report over a birthday party of a 32 year old horse named Mohammed: ‘Beloved Mohammed – A Horse-Granddad celebrates his birthday’
This report set of an avalanche: Local Muslims and several Muslim organisations ran hot, they inundated the editorial office with emaild, signature lists, mail, faxes and phone calls. Death threads were outspoken. The affair became an political issue: It’s ‘distasteful and ethically unallowable’ to give a horse the name of the Prophet, an ‘exorbitant offence’ to all Muslims. And it’s even a bigger crime to report about it.
‘It’s a riddle how an intelligent person can be so empty-headed against the sensibility of an denomination such as the Islam’. An ‘immediate clarification’ was demanded, and an ‘apology to the whole Muslim community’.
Because of the threads against the horse, the owner of the horse and the editorial staff of the paper the state security service interfered: They declared that they are not able to protect the life of the horse and its owner and recommended to rename the aged horse.
The owner agreed, a local broadcast-station showed how the name-plate at the horses box was changed to ‘Mohmi’. The local newspaper published an apology about the article.

just checked it out...

Scary dude!

I have heard about they were against muslims and generel immigration (seems like sometimes it´s the same same bla bla bla that all political xenophobs talks - sad to say) but these guys are really out there...

Which remind me - saw a BBC program not long ago about PEN and the interviewer had found some evidence that representatives from PEN had visited KKK in USA and some neonazies in UK. Can't remember the programs name though.

Scary...! :(

By the way - Im glad not all the crap that the danish pendant have said have been translated...
Talk about increase of an already bad situation.

What can I say "Jerks are all over - it first when somebody starts listening to them that it goes wrong"

Better not mention flying saucers. The scientologists might feel offended and run wild (((:~{>

Well, you don't know what we can find
Why don't you come with me little girl
On a magic carpet ride
You don't know what we can see
Why don't you tell your dreams to me
Fantasy will set you free
Close your eyes girl
Look inside girl
Let the sound take you away

I love this planet but this planet's killin' me
Sitting here in all this grass man I don't get no weed
The sweat comin' from my pores take me away piece by piece
Gonna leave everything I know gonna head to the galaxy
Gonna leave this planet man, gonna head to the galaxy

What you really need is a TARDIS (or Mr. Peabody's Wayback Machine). Why limit your escape to just space, when all of time could be open to you. (Of course, think about kidnapping a dozen each imams and Christian preachers and showing them the real Jesus and the real Mohammed. My evil thought for the night.)

And, speaking of time travel, thanks, Elengil. STEPPENWOLF was the first group I ever heard live, back at the Fillmore East -- now you know how ancient I am. They opened the bill. The closing act was the BUDDY MILES EXPRESS, a forgotten and forgettable drummer-led group, except that night a friend of Buddy's came out of the audience and jammed with them, a pretty good guitarist, Now what was his name? I remember his first name was Jimi.

(And the next weekend was the second American appearance of the original JEFF BECK GROUP, with Jack Bruce on bass and a singer named Rod Stewart.)
