In solidarity against death threats made to artists who have drawn an image of an Arab man and called it Mohammed, a group on Facebook was
created called “Everybody
Draw Mohammed Day”. What started as a little idea, has grown into a
huge event, with coverage on major networks such as CNN and MSNBC.
At first, I was against the idea for a couple of reasons… because Muslims believe it offensive, it makes it offensive, and I don’t see
that being offensive solves anything, and I truly do not wish to offend
my Muslim friends or the many good Muslims - who outnumber the crazies
by far. But the insanity of not only death threats but actual murders of
artists, filmmakers and writers changes that…
So in solidarity with all artists everywhere, and in a call for reason and to
stop the insanity, I am posting some of the many thousands of images
which are being uploaded today. These are some of my favorites.
