Subject: fuck you drower

fuck you dont drow muhammeds pictures. if i can see you I will kill you son of bitch.



From: S. Saeed
Subject: you are Anti-Christ

After looking at all the 'art' you collected, I don't even like to think about you bastards as humans.
You never see any disrespect of any prophet by Muslims.
Why you pagan bastards don't understand the respect of a monotheist Prophet?

Yours mothers are whores and your fathers are pimps. How can you understand what reality is? You guys can fuck even your own sisters and mothers.

You are irrelevant and we all are waiting for the time of your complete destruction and annihilation along with your mentor the Satan.

You don't deserve any attention or notice.

Wait for your painful end, which will come soon.



From: Khalid M. (Pakistan)

I am extremely disappointed and displeased after visiting your website.

What you people are up to. It is offensive and disrespectful and even unbearable.

You have no idea how deeply we muslim love our Holy Prophet Muahammad (PBUH).
No muslim can ever permit this act.
May he/she be non practicing or remotely religious - it is unacceptable for one, leaving aside a small percentage of hypocrates.

I demand that all this stuff depicting Holy Prophet Muahammad (PBUH) be removed from this web site and as well from all mirror sites.

I hope you will understand and you will save yourself from the deepest place in hell.

As you want to spread your democracy over the world

can you start talking about the jews religion and all it's sublime teaching have you ever had a look what the jews are beleiving, you will not have the courage sun of bitch!!!!!!!!!!

Can you start talking about the jews holocauste and how the jews refused to get out from german after a hitler proposal and accepted to be killed in order to make the whole world guilty and give them palestine

Show all this the world your democracy and free speech you are enjoying, the jews will kick your ass son of pig

The jews are known by their hypocracy and hate towards all faith and they use their monopoly in europe and the world to transmit these stupidities

Can you show to your reader why the american (sorry) (the masons controlling america) in the world war 2 selected NAGAZAKI in japan to kill hundred of thousand of innocent people, it's not because they have gun factories there, but IT'S THE BIGGEST AND BOOMING CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY IN ASIA ...this what the jews wanted

From: m. moustafa (Detroit, Michigan)

i mean why you guys gotaa make fun of prophits all of them and mohammed included. prophits are gifted people from god and you should not make fun of them even if you dont believe them because if you do that means you make fun of god and thats not good. would you like anyone to make fun of your beliefs and your prophits. so all im asking you guys is to stop making fun of any prophits and show some respect and just think about god and about hell.

i'm a muslim and you jews know that muslims are right and you guys are wrong and you that we have a Qran and that holly book is true and the prophit mohammed is true. and you know guys that we will beat you in the last battle before the judgment day and thats why you guys are cutting the trees but you guys are losing and going to hell.

Subject: go to hell mother fuckers

actually u r those motherfuckers who dont know the names
of your fathers so you all r jeoloused of muslims because
they have values and strong religous background and your
generations even dont know the name of their prophet,
ALLAH send all of you to the terriblest part of the hell very soon.

do what ever you like but you even can not touch the shit of a muslim
as it is more cleaner then you people.

even JESUS AND MOSES both feel ashamed to call
christians and jews as their belivers,because all prophets
sent by allmighty God have same preachings and we
muslims respect all the prophets and even cant imagine
to do any thing against them,and we r extreamly
proud to have the superiorest prophet (p.b.u.h)
for whom GOD made this whole universe.
all the motherfuckers done in this side God led
them to hell soon.

just wait and watch one day the 9/11 will be repeated.

Subject: All the best

Hi!!
This is Murtaza and I wish luck for all of those who have created this webpage. Please don't take me wrong you will need all the luck from all your friend and family members as they see you burning in Hell for your acts.

I understand you have your rights and you can display and show what you want however what is displayed on your website will affect on a millions of people around the world as this is an act of coward ness you people were not able to do anything when your own President Mr. Bush whose house is run by our people in Saudi knew everything about 9/11 and still allowed you people to die as it was in his interest of making money from the Muslims.

You culture allows you to see your daughter and your wife naked and having sex with some one else in front of you and you say that it is Democracy to hell with this kind of freedom

I will certainly pray that all the people who have worked on this website goes to hell for good and also let other people learn about you so that very soon the complete of America is faced with situations like 9/11 in each and every state and city that you have.

From: J. Svendsen (Norway)

Dear crusaders of nihilism,

I do not wish to oppose your philosophical principles, as they are obcured to me. I will how ever, comment your means of expressing them.

Freedom of speech is one thing, and its good. Acting like an idiot is another. Having the right to express doesn't mean its the wisest. Freedom of speech not should be opposed to reason and understanding, but always compliment it.

I am a peaceful person, but reading your page with Muhammed (PBUH) depictions filled me with stronger emotions that I would like. Reading your page made me feel more and more... hoping that you die a silent death so that your filth dies silently. I am very unconfortable with these feelings.

The point about the caricatirures isnt that its a neccisarily unchangable principle amongst all moslems through all time -- many moslems will disagree -- but that we are fully aware that this are a provocation which is totally unconstructive. Waking your freedom of speech in the face of the poor and oppressed helps little.

These are poor countries. Historically, the west colinialized them, subjugated them. In the end the west forced the nation states on them... and did not most of these states become rouge states?

Please, this is not good enough. Grow up. Freedom of speech is imperative, do not waste it. By this, I do hope that you moderate this page somewhat, so that your abilities and rescourses -- which you obviously inhabit -- may be used for reconiciliation and understanding. The problems of the middle east and of terrorism and oppression in the name of Islam are many and obvious, but you are not contributing constructivly.



From: Firas Al H. (Egypt)

Because we have high morals and respect to evey other religion.
It is not allowed for us to mock on any prophet or respectfull man in any way.
The issue is that what you posted on your site will not solve any problem.
In contrary it will increase the hate and violance.
And moslims will stay moslims and will not change.
Offending others will not make us change our mind.
Any way people like you are mentioned in the Quran.
So we are not expecting Less than that.
But in our religion, at the end of the world The Lord Jesus Christ will come to support the Mohamad's Grandson and together They will rule the world waitng for the judgement day.
till that date comes, we have a date. And GOD will be the judge and we will see.
And don't blame Moslems if they bobmed you or your town or anyone else bcz you made them Hate you.



I aint muslim but the person responsible for this site must be so fuckin sick. fancy searching for depicting pictures of the prophet. He must have such a sad life or was most probably abused as a child by his father. Maybe he's gay or just impotent and see's this as way way of reassuring himself. O and fancy then having a column of responses for and against the cartoons. This is obviously the real devil, could even be one of bush's cabinet members. I see that such person does not give out his or her contact details just a email address. what a coward, why dont you stand in the middle of the hyde park in london and practice your so called democratic free speech rights, I would love to see how long you'd last...ye i've read that muslims are warned about people like this that do such devilish things to stir up trouble and then call the response terrorism. This my fellow western friends is the real meaning of incitement. If muslims started to make cartoons of this nature about 9/11 how would we feel. Muslims cant even walk onto airplanes these days without being suspects and we talk about freedom of speech. The truth is there isnt any, so stop this nonsense, people making these depicting cartoons are not practicing freedom of speech that is just a smoke screen. The real agenda is to offend muslims into having hatred towards the west so we can label them as extremists. Which person in there right mind is going to practice freedom of speech only to offend others? a dam sick one of course cos it can be used for much better causes.

The person responsible for this website is guaranteed to be a jew. Another interpretation for a jew = very very sick and cowardly.

From: Dr. Arbuthnot

I am not sure if this site is supposed to celebrate freedom of speech or simply provide a forum for angry, self-righteous people -- be they for or against the beliefs of Islam.

All freedom has limits once it infringes on the physical or mental state of a group; none more so than those that attack existential beliefs. The rational goal of anyone who defends such groups should be to focus on solutions rather than the easier repetition of what is wrong under the guise of simply creating a document archive -- which could just as easily be done in a vault.

In either case, it is a shame that people who have the intelligence and skills to create such a site would do so to widen division.

There are certainly as many childish Muslims as there are Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Atheists and so on. While offended by the imagery depicted here, I only hope the authors and artists who so vehemently practice the prejudices they want to correct will one day spend a little more time searching their own souls; and a little less being as reactionary as the unwitting few who helped infantile illustrations get far more press than they deserved.

Finally, a simple request to the site owners: please tone down the vulgarity of the comments since it is just as easy for a child to view the site as an adult.

because you dont deserve this word, any way in our relegion we respect all the prophets and this is essential and I cant say a word on jesus because we beleive him as we beleive in our prophet mohammed and any one who dont beleive in all prophets , he is considered as being out of islam.

I say this because we have the ethics that prevent us from say a shit like you have in this poor web site, our relegion is great and whatever you saw it here or there (11th of september or boombing here or there ) is just a react of what you do against us.

you kill us in palestine and in Iraq in lebanon, afganistan . you fight moslems in all over the world!! and imagine you dont want us to defend our self's .

From: Zahed M. (South Africa)

As you are well aware it is forbidden to have pictures of the prophet (pbuh), for one very simple reason. His (pbuh) greatest fear was that people would worship him by erecting a tomb and worshipping at his tomb. This would turn the worship away from the only one true God. If indeed there were true pictures of the prophet (pbuh) every Muslim home would have a portrait hanging up in the lounge of their homes, just as every Christian, Hindu, Buddhist, etc (the ones I know anyway) have pictures of their prophets and saints hanging in their homes. I have seen homes were there are claims of "ashes and tears" from pictures attracting herds of people to pray at these pictures offering milk and honey and fruit, money, etc, etc, to a picture. Who are they praying for? The pictures, or the person in the picture, or are they praying to God, a strange way to pray to God in a picture of some human being. How can the creator suddenly become the created in a picture?

Anyway back to the pictures of the Prophet (pbuh) on the web, I have seen the picture with an open mind. Your view of the depiction of the prophet in no way changes my Love, honor and respect for him, nor does it any way affect my belief in him as the final messenger. Moreover, it does not change my believing that there is only one God.

However, I must add that any derogatory pictures of the Prophet (pbuh) will result in me or any Muslim voicing our anger.

We as Muslims know that the pictures are not a true depiction of the prophet (pbuh) just as we don't believe that the pictures of Jesus (pbuh) are a true reflection of him either.

We as humans should learn to live and respect each other, so that we can give generations after us an opportunity to live on this planet, instead of us trying to destroy it by bombing and killing each other.

From: Youssef C.

In the name of God the most beneficient, the most Merciful

I saw these horrible drawings that you are displaying in your website.

In fact without any doubt you know the gravity of your act and the insult that you are uttering against this great personality which is Muhammad (Peace and Blessings of God upon Him), and you know how much this is vexing the Muslim community.

This act is pure attack against Islam, against Muslim, against faith, against believes, against the best of the human race, pure demagogy, a filthy act.

In fact you are just defaming and blaspheming our prophet (May Peace and Blessings of God be upon Him).

The cartoons that you are putting on this web page are neither freedom of expression nor sign of democracy or truthful nor funny, or even intellectual, but just another horrible sign of racism, hatred, and injustice.

While the Muslim community, and his right are disregarded and their land and property stolen and destructed, their women raped, their children and elders abused and killed, and their men killed, imprisoned and called terrorist for the only reason of defending themselves their family, country, or sometimes even just for proclaiming being people who just worship one God.

The attack of these journalist and others ignorant people continue to rise, and astonishing things are said and published.

I urge you to think better of what you are doing and to be truthful with you own selves.

What you are doing is wrong and if you have a spark of reason in your head you should stop this evil act.

I would like to remind you what non-Muslim personalities have to say about Muhammad:

[20 pages' worth of quotes deleted for brevity's sake -- ed.]

I hope that these citations of diverse personalities will remind you of your inferiority compared to our beloved Muhammad (May Peace and Blessings of God be upon Him), and will cut your furious ardour to insult this man which is a mercy for the Humanity.

If you continue I will deduct that above ignorance, its pure hatred and/or jealousy which motivate your act. And if you stop it will be better for your self degradation, knowing that anything you do, you will not arrive to touch or lower the great statue of the master of the creation of God Muhammad (May Peace and Blessings of God be upon Him), not even arm Islam as God the Supreme, the Al Mighty said :

[9.32] "They desire to put out the light of Allah with their mouths, and Allah will not consent save to perfect His light, though the unbelievers are averse."

And indeed this new attack against the prophet only united the Muslim re-strengthen them and also bright to the light of Islam new happy re-convert to Islam.

From: Abdul J.
Subject: Blasphemous Activity

On this day of the holy Ramadhan I pray that Allah will open your up mind and heart to be a sensible person and stop doing things like a perverted person devoid of high human values.

It clearly shows that such an activity comes from person/s so sick in the mind and heart. Person/s of high intellectual perspective will never dwell in such wasteful and non-beneficial work. I know that your religion forbids such doings but certainly you're one of those bad followers of your religion.

Our religion, Islam, does not allow us Muslims to do like what you are doing right now. You, being a white man whom many consider as having high moral values, are doing a foolish and despicable piece work befitting only to a barbaric frame of mind.

It is such a waste having such a high academic qualification and yet set to doing such immoral activities which goes to show that you are totally devoid of true human and divine values.

Please sit down and think hard that what you are doing does not in anyway benefit you and your race. Putting aside your religion you would only bring yourself and your race down to a level fit to be cursed for the things you are now actively indulging. There are many other worthwhile activities that you can think of doing for you to be able to contribute for the good of your own race in particular and humankind in general.

Have you, being an intellectual person, in anyway tried to read the holy Quran and search for the hidden secrets to see what makes the universe and all the things in it is set in such harmony that shows the greatness of Allah. It was Allah who brought down the holy Al Quran to Muhammad (peace be upon him) through the angel Gabriel.

The whole contents of the Quran are not only meant for the Arabs but to the whole of mankind as well. Those who are able to see the truth in the Al Quran would be able to appreciate what is actually happening around us and the universe. No other books describe the divine truth as perfect as the Al Quran. If you have not read and studied the holy Quran and understood it then you are not at all qualified to pass any comments let alone condemn it and its teaching and the holy Prophet Mohammad s.a.w. who was bestowed with the holy book.

For your information the holy Quran was brought down to complete that of other books like the Torah, Zabur and Bible. All of the other books had indicated the advent of the great prophet after Jesus Christ but unfortunately the information was purposely misconstrued by clergymen of each previous religion. The contents of other books are being manipulated to such an extent that the books of other divine religions come in various version often in contradictory with each other. But it is not so with the holy Quran. You can just pick up any Quran and compare it with another and you can never find anything different even to the very last letter.

Please be more rational in what you are going to do when you wish to really read and study the holy Quran, if you have not set your mind to do so, then do not waste your time. May Allah open up mind to do so.



Subject: I would like to tell you our side of the story...

I am a Muslim, and I saw your website, and I would like to point out something. First of all, what us Muslims are mainly upset about; is NOT that they drew the Prophet Peace Be Upon Him, but that they protrayed him as a terrorist,which is a TOTAL LIE! If you read the biography of the Prophet Peace Be Upon Him, you might better understand that those comic strips were Extremely Offensive. You say that there are other pictures of the Prophet, and I am sure that the Muslims of that age showed their anger about the offensive ones especially.Not all of the pictures you have in your archive are offensive to the Prophet,though. So I am writing to you just to clear this up.

I am sending you some information about the prophet,so you will have a better idea of who he was, what kind of man he was, his morals and character. At the bottom are also some names of some biographies. If you want, I can find some titles of biographies in English, just let me know.Thank you for reading what I have to say, and I hope you at least put our point of view in your site.

From: Beduino Loco (Morocco)

Let me state I am a born-again Christian. I came upon your web page looking for historical depictions of Islam's Prophet, Mohamed. Though I found many of the depictions interesting and even enlightening I could not say the same about your Extreme Mohamed category. A cursory view of a couple of the images was enough to see they had no value and I could not find a valid purpose to include them. They have no artistic value, no educational value and no redeeming factor that I could perceive. I was too revolted to see them all. The flames of bigotry and extremism have no need for fuel. I ask you in the name of human decency to delete this category. Or if you won't then please explain why you must include such filth and how you believe they will further the cause of free speech.

(These are not meant to be rhetorical questions)

To all true Muslims I urge, do not enter into the Extreme Mohamed category, it is only seeking to provoke and offend, not only you but all people who have any values.

Although your work did not offend me, simply because I dont give your openion much importance, I have to say that I tried hard to find any possible benefit to your work for anyone, easterner or westerner, but i could not establish that.

However, I tried searching for a reason why someone would go through so much trouble to offend others the way you did, and the only explanation I could come up with was that you are a person with a grudge against Islam, a grudge that is influencing your ability to think with reason. It is so blinding your vision to the point that makes you see a low life act to be what you are calling " freedom of speach".

I would like to leave you with a thought of which I am sure that you not only know, but also believe in "your freedom stops when someone elses starts".

May god who ever he is " Allah " or else show you the way to live and love.



From: Salm7Kh@....com

It is ashame how people tend to abuse "freedom of speech". This is a form of prejudicy and these cartoons just created more hatred in this world. Our loving and last Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), gave his entire life for humanity. He only preached peace, and exhibiting false images of terrorism about him is absolutely not accepible. But when the day of judgement arrives, it will be too late for all the cartoonists and supporters of these false images to repent. This is very uncivillized and barbaric of the cartoonist. I know there are good Danish people out there also, and they don't deserve to be put down. But everyone has to understand that a nation has been severely hurt. Just picture this...if someone were to make these same cartoons, but were to use your mother's face in each one, how would you feel? It's worse for us, because we love our Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), and to see such degrading images...

Please remove these false images because an uproar has just been created.....and we will continue to boycott until a decent apology and the removal of all degrading and predjudice pictures have been removed. And if they're not...there will be no oil for you, so get in touch with the Amish people.

Well, the first thing you have to know is that if there are some people that kill and spread teror around the world in the name of Islam, a thing that even Muslims are against, certainly there is a reason behind that. just make your brains work a bit and think about it, Muslims have skills of making caricatures, drawing pics and also making some annimations, but they never dare and will ever dare to show indignity towards christian's or Jewish prophets, or what ever, just have a while and read some of the Quora translated to the language you can understand, and you will see how that book, and how Islam thinks about Jesus, Moses and all the prophets. We love all of them, you don't believe in Islam, you don't believe in Mohammed, you don't believe is his sacred book the Quoran, it's cool you are free, no one will blame you, the land is wide and enough for all of us to live in peace, each with his thoughts and beliefes, but without insulting what is not sacred, holly and sensitive, you can creticise the Muslims or even Islam, but before you do it try to know about it, cause when we criticise something we ignore we are not fair, we are even so cruel.

Firstly Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is not the founder of Islam, It's not a social group that u join.

You're laughing and joking about beliefs and a way of life.
What about Islam and Muslims scare u???? Why try and make people angry????
Why laugh at a man who was noble, kind and tolerant???
Muslims dislike, on a whole any images to be made of the prophets for no other reason other then respect. We don't portray images because we don't want people praying to them and confusing it like people do with Jesus (pbuh) ie jesus was born in the middle east and he is portrayed like a white man. People pray to his image etc.

Information is a good thing but if you're hurting people and offending them, regardless of your religion decency should prevail.

Subject: This is what you call democracy ?

People have right to say and express them self, it is democracy what you are all believe. But in this case im not hate you because of you made caricatur but i hate you cos you made my prophet muhammad as a subject in caricatur, you can make every one in this world to be your subject but why you make prophet as your subject, as muslim we respect all religion why you can not respect our religion and our believing and our prophet.

You was wrong explain about prophet muhammad, and you was made a big mistake, muslim people love to die for defend of the holy prophet muhammad and al-quran, and their believing.

I believe theres other people who want to destroyed a muslim people, we also believe there is a lot of devil who want to take human to hell to company them, because of this is what the devil promise and people who said bad things about my prophet muhammad is a devil but like human who will be stay in hell forever.

you all think that muslim people who was made bomb in wtc 9/11, and think all muslim as terorism, but when one of your people kill muslim people and he is christian, muslim people not blame all christian people in this world but we blame the person, this is that you have to realize first. as a muslim we also hate terorism cos we love peace.

for me my religion mine and your religion is yours , why you can not respect that.

Allah SWT know what you did and you can not hide, Allah not sleep and not blind, Allah not she or he, .......................................Someday i believe you will find what is the right about Prophet Muhammad, theres still time for you to ask forgiveness before it is to late.

If you learn more about muslim and learn history and open your mind you will find the true and the light, but i wish it not to late for you..........................

muslim people can not accept this atitute cos we love and believe our faith not like you who also humiliate your own believe and your own prophet, but i know it because you dont have faith.

learn and find the true first before you talk, respect people first and people will respect on you.

one advice for you all :
Use you chances when you still have it, so you will not regret
remember this 5 before other 5
healthy before sick, young before old, large before narrow, rich before poor and live before die.

From: D. Mendoza

While I don't agree with the overall intentions of this site, I do agree that we all have a responsibility to stand up and let the world know that we will not allow dictators and oppressors to threaten us into submission. I do, however, believe that this could have been accomplished in a much more productive manner.

I would appreciate it very much if you would let the people know that indeed you are not a Biblical Christian, to at least clear up that misunderstanding. Provoking people to anger is sin according to the Bible.

I've just one question though for the muslims...

For such self-professing holy people, from what I've read here anyway, you certainly do have filthy mouths. I doubt that a holy God would encourage such language, and threats of rape. Please forgive me if I sound condescending, that's not my intent, but this irony stands out. The truth is that while you condemn other people to hell, you condemn yourself because we are ALL sinners, and you've made that clear....

Do you honestly think any objective observer would be persuaded to convert to Islam after seeing the fruits it has apparently brought forth?
...
Both sides here are to blame. One for provoking, the other for being immature enough to viciously retaliate. (Let's be honest though. Islam's mission is indeed to force people into submission, or severely punish them if they don't submit. It can't then take much to provoke, can it? Perhaps being an infidel would do it?)

Which is why we all need to wake up and see the facts. If we don't step up, we will later on regret our permissiveness. Everything we have come to value, that which was passed down from our forefathers, is at stake. Fundamental muslims are on a mission to conquer the world, and force their own values on everyone. This is really no joke, and no amount of passivity and kindness will eradicate this problem.

Subject: opinion of a simple muslim and follower of prophet muhammad

what do u think freedom is? it is exercising your rights to the extent that it doesnt harm others. now what do u think "freedom of expression" is? if someone pictures your mother doing lewd acts in your wall, will you feel offended or will you call it freedom of expression? ask yourself honestly and you will get the answer.

muhammad was undoubtably the most influential man in human history. from a simple background he rose, but when he died, he established a religion. a religion which almost surely is the best one available . he rose a fire, it was not the fire of sword, but fire of knowledge, truthfulness and judgement. islam rein supreme in middleages not by accident, but verymuch by the ideal of muhammad. still today it is the best system available, it develops you in a personal level, make u diciplined and concentrated, a family man as well as in the society.

if you are an atheist, it doesnt matt er, you can keep on shouting freedom of expression etc etc. but if u r a theist, u got to remember that this muhammad changed the human history, had the most success, surely god allowed him to be and he was just not like any other guy.

thanks for your patience.

Subject: say what u want to say

first of all ....many of the historical events about prophet mohhamed u have talked about r wrong
there were never been a messecar in mohhamed's life or in his 4 kalifas after him...and there is no word in the qur'an can say that u can kill innocent people or old's/child/women.

the muslims if they wanna offend about somebody they will be offend about a jew or a chiristian ora buddist they don't offend there prophets or there gods u dumm ass..thats something so sensitive to be ofended

second of all there is a saying in the arabic world says '' let the dogs parks and the caravan travels ''
it means u can say what u wanna say and do what u wanna do but u will stands still as muslims and i dare u to get to me a muslim have insulted a prophet of any religion

the free speech is to insult somebody unnone not to insult somebody dearful to Bilions



From: Hassan E.
Subject: May God guide you to the right path

First I would like to say that I am against all the cartoons that you have featured on your site. The second thing is that I think that Muslims these days do not portray a good image of Islam and that is why people think that the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) teachings are not correct.

So the reason for my message is twofold, for the Muslims who emailed in and to Muslims in general, do you not know that swearing and shouting abuse to others whatever there faith is against the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and that when he was alive when someone who swear at him he would not answer back.

Secondly to who owns this site and to the people who have responded supporting the cartoons I say this, look into the true teachings of Islam and do not take what you read or see on TV or in Newspapers as the ultimate truth. Read about Islam the true Islam and if you still have the same views then fine but please before you generalise Muslims look into ISLAM and forget about what the Muslims do in this day and age as most of what they do is against ISLAM and the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

Finally I would like to pray to God to guide me and all of you to the right path and make you see ISLAM as it should be seen the religion of truth and peace.



From: Bader

I would like to greet you for all the efforts you have put to come up with this site.

I believe that if you had half of that effort into something beneficial to human beings (as Humans NOT animals) you would have been rich in many ways!

I am not gonna go into democracy and your right of expression and all these terms that are misinterpreted by many ignorant aggregates. I just wanted you to know, that where ever you are from north or south, and what educational level you have reached...I bet you have no sense of the world around you, you only know what you wanna know from smoke head friends, controlling mass media.

Here is the thing, Give your self 15 minutes a day, I want you to look for anything genuine about Islam(not mockeries though :) ) I guess what I am trying to say is, know Islam better, you are attacking a religion that u know nothing about! and I know that for sure. you might be driven by the terrorist attacks or others who try to distort the peaceful image of Islam, and I don't blame you for that, although I would blame u for not getting your facts straights. look at this example ;if two of your friends are mad at each other, you would listen for both right? then do the same thing but on a bigger scale this time. Listen man or women, the world has enough greed and hatred why would anyone simple as us add on to that. I like to smile,be safe and help people and be Muslim everyday, is that bad! do i deserve to see someone I respect and love be mocked and be covered with lies?. I guess no, we as Muslims never made fun or belittle any figure of other religions and would never do that.



From: aisha r. (UK)

Do you think it is right to mock people and their religion? What have you got against Islam? It is a profound religion, which encourages peace and harmony. The media makes Islam to be some Terrorism religion, which is out to kill. THAT IS WRONG AND INACCURATE. I do agree that there are some barbaric Muslims out there who are terrorists. All Muslims aren't like that, most Muslims are against terrorism. People who carry out acts of terrorism and call them selves Muslim are not. To be a Muslim you cant hurt innocent people and you have to lead a good life. It is sick that people do these things and call them selves Muslim.

I agree with you that every one has freedom of speech, but sometimes...it can be offensive and hurting to the other person. These cartoons are all wrong and it is unjust to say mean things about a man you don't even know about in full detail. I have know idea who influenced and made you against Islam but please just do research properly before making cartoons like this and don't judge a person so easily. Inshah-allah you will be guided to the right path and truly out of the bottom of my heart I wish you stop this.

Other people who have objected of this on the reader's page are not behaving like proper Muslims (only some of them). They have written harsh and mean things about you. I apologise on their behalf, as I am Muslim to. I do not wish you any harm at all and if I have been the slightest bit harsh I am sorry, Extremley Sorry. I am just conveying my thoughts in a gentle way.



From: nadal a.

All praise is due to Allah alone. May Allah's peace and blessings be unto His slave-servant Mohammed and unto all his brethren prophets and messengers of Allah, and unto all their followers to the Day of Judgment, amen.

Mohammed is the purest of the mankind breed.

Danish people, as well as all other peoples on the face of earth, are reminded that such ridiculing acts are mere lies and nonsense.

Mohammed is truly the purest of the mankind breed. Any ridiculing acts, no matter how many in volume and number they are, they would not change this fact that billions of people believe in. Allah, the Almighty reported this in the Glorious Quran. The face of Allah's Messenger SAAW represents purity, holiness and glory. His face is more lit than the full-moon itself. His face beams generosity, glory, happiness, optimism and attraction to all those who saw him. Everyone who looked at the face of Mohammed was attracted to his glory, even his enemies. Symbolically, Mohammed was never reported to be a frowner or with fierce facial features. He had never beaten a person throughout his honorable life; a woman, a child a man or else.

It is rather extremely disappointing and depressing for the Danish newspaper itself and its' editors and editor-in-chief, for the entire Danish government and every one wants to redicule the prophet peace be upon him, that the only information they have about Mohammed is the bit they ridiculed him for. Allah, the Almighty told the truth saying in the Glorious Quran 36:30, 'Woe be to mankind! Never a messenger was sent to them except they ridiculed him I call upon these ridiculing people, who ridiculed Allah's Messenger SAAW, and I call upon the non-Muslims to do-themselves-a-favor, to read the noble biography of the honorable Prophet and Messenger of Allah, the Almighty. They will be doing themselves a favor by reading the best biography of a man on-the-face-of-earth ever. He is the perfect man, the perfect leader, the perfect teacher, the perfect human being, the perfect father and the perfect all-in-all man.



From: Ahmed S.

As Muslims we believe any depiction of Prophets, let it be Ibrahim (Abraham), Musa (Moses), Isa (Jesus), Daud (David), Muhammad (PBUH) and God to be utterly blasphemous. What we do not understand is the phobic attitude towards our belief system. This attitude towards Islam's right to defend its religious purity has manifested itself as a belief, accurate or not, assumes that by depicting images of Muhammad (PBUH) is merely freedom of expression. Such actions of religious intolerance may be interpreted as "Xenophobia". My question is, since when hurting a particular religious belief have become "Freedom of Expression"? If it is true, concepts such as "Nazism" or "Antisemitism" are also "Freedom of Expression"?



From: John H.

If Persians, particularly shi'ites, depict muhammad with a face (I have seen Jesus-like pictures of Muhammad on walls in public throughout Iran), that doesn't mean such depictions are permitted among Sunnis or generally within Islam. Your site showing Muslim depictions of Muhammad all hail from Iran and environs. [Not true. -- ed.] That is not any excuse for intentionally vile depictions by Europeans of Muhammad for consumption by westerners. Is the point that Arabs don't riot over Irani pictures of the prophet? Because Iranis don't generally show Muhammad in a disparaging manner, so that really would not be a rational comparison. Just what is the point? So Muhammad's been painted before. Was it done before as a provocative test of Muslim "tolerance" for western abuses of freedom of the press?

I do not think that anyone should make fun or do blastomas pictures of any Religion, we should all have our choice. No one was made is responsible for what Religion they are! it is what is chosen at the time of your birth. There for, it is shameful to see any Prophet Jesus the Prophet or Buda made fun of. And as far as some of the Muslims here on this offended site, you should be ashamed of your selves telling this website that you are going to murder them.

And Yes! my ancestors would be ashamed of you also!for saying these things. The web is a very interesting place , you do not have to look at these pictures if they offend you in any way.



From: shaikh e.

I consider myself as a devout muslim . Looking at your site has been a real eye opener for me. i cannot believe how much hatred especially from the christian world there is against Islam and mohamed (pbuh). Christians promote forgiveness and to turn the other cheek, i can understand the uneducated peoples reaction to islam but to learn that the churches around the world have foul and offensive images, paintings and carvings hidden within the churches makes me realise that when people cannot intellectually debate with the islamic world they reduce them self to such unsophisticated juvenile exhibitions.

I have no excuse for the offensive responses from my fellow muslim brothers as this is also unacceptable and against the true teachings of Islam. To all my muslim brothers i feel your pain but dont let your emotions get the better of you, i pray for all man kind. I know Islam is the true religion, i have seen many debates among very educated scholars from there respected religions and islam always prevails (search for Dr zakir naik) Even scientically ( professor harun yahya) i am not trying to preach, but look at the real issue, all this hatred comes from ignorance, dont hide behind your freedom of speech. If you want to know muhamed then why not listen to former christian preacher Yusef estess, but no, your not concerned with the truth.



From: Majdi

This is a tremendous work collecting these images.

I don't really understand the real purpose of your collected info and images.

Every body must express their free believe and opinion, it is every body's right to do so. But I don't understand why should any body insults other's believe in order to practice " his free opinion".

The other point is when any one wants to express an opinion it should be made clear that it is their own opinion and not a fact. This is one of the fundamental of the freedom of speech.



From: isma k.

i just want to say every one will be held accountable for their own deeds. i am very hurt by such an abbhorent act. You people have no right to do such. As you say its FREEDOM of speech. what freedom do u call this? All you people who arent muslims, and are for this, where in your religion does it say mock other relgions? Surely u have transgressed. i stronlgy recommend you to go out there and do research on islam. open minded and realise, it is nothing what you non-muslims claim. it is a religion of peace.. do u actually even know what ISLAM means? there are different sects of muslims out ther. just like there are in judaism and christianity. The religion cannot be blamed, but the people who follow. many dont follw properly. therefore, solely religion cannot be balmed. The prophet Muhammad peace and blessings be upon Him, was and is the last messenger of God. he was from the family of Abraham, as Moses and Jesus peace be upon them. he unlike any other man, was a trustworthy, kind, gentle and the best of creation.!! hw can he command muslims to do such? and as you have stated he used God's name to get everything he wanted. that is a false and invalid statemnt. sorry, but u r ignorant, becus u dont know much about this prophet do u??? he was offered by his own unlce, who didnt accept this religion that he would giv the prophet wealth of saudi/mecca, and give him women etc, if he would stop preaching this message, but NO, the prophet, said he would carry on with this message, he had no worldy means...



From: Rasit O. (Turkey)
Subject: Shame on you

We muslims even don't think about enjoying with your prophets.
Is this ethic in your religion? Annoying somebody innocent?

Is it admissible to generalize some people's fault in presenting our religion?
Look how we muslims get angry with your pictures, look how we respect our prophet.

Do you think we wouldn't get angry when your prophet caricatured?
I don't want to say bad words, I only want you to try to understand the difference of islam, but ,definitely, learn it from the right sources.

How many times a day you thank to your creator?
Have you ever thanked to the creator for your eyes? ears?
How many times in a day, you show your gratefulness to the creator?
Have you ever accepted a visitor, whom you're not familiar with, to your house? That is poor and hungry?
Have you ever help somebody, "just for" pleasing the creator?

I can clearly observe your lives and ours, can catch the difference, I feel bad because I see our people are moving away from islam, in common. All deficiencies arise from this. But there are still many people that has a lifestyle that covers all of above and much more.
I assure you that only 20 years early, almost every muslim in Turkiye had these good tempers.

Don't bother with wrong presenters and followers of islam,
You can follow it right with the help of the creator,
Think with foresight, read the answers of accusations against islam from the net.

Subject: Some not necessary

Your web-site is very informative and helpful and most of the cartoons were also valid to print.

Except for the "Extreme Muhammed" part - that was not necessary and very dirty and offensive. I was shocked at that.

The others are free speech, but the extreme ones are Pornographic and very offensive.

There was no need to go that far, and who ever drew those, obviously was trying extra hard to be as offensive as possible to Muslims. That could really get the fanatical Muslims angry.

As Christians, we must be ready to give answers to Muslims for the hope within us, yet with gentleness and respect. I Peter 3:15

Including those was not gentle, nor respectful.

Sincerely,

This is important to know that we live on one planet,breathe same air,drink same water and feel some drive which is out there that controls the universe.Here are two groups which are at loggerheads/conflicts, what has gone wrong?Why instigate a peoples belief to such a creul manner?Does freedom of expression in the civilized world have to go to such an extent? if so one would have done it with Jesus or Moses why Muhammed? the answer is simple,the perpetraters of this act know that the muslims will immidiately react to such an act against their religion or religious figure. This technique has always been used in the past and will still be used in future.

For example the 9/11 the world knows what happened on this date and the events which took place there after:
1)AFGHANISTAN ATTACKED
2)IRAQ ATTACKED
3)IRAN COULD BE ATTACKED
All in the name of campaign against terrorism.!!!!!!
There are the Palestinians trying to hit back Israelies, is that not terrorism? why not clamp them down too,but ofcourse the Israelies have them under control. Think why would a palestinian strap himself with a bomb to commit suicide does he really want to die?NO NO NO!!!! He is only oppressed to such a state, some can call it freedom fighter others a rebel and others even a TERRORIST.

So my brothers and sisters this is the world today very manipulative and very uncivilised, BAD images of religious figures such as the beloved prophet muhammed of Islam have been painted side by side even Jesus's they dont mind.Can they respect their own parents?

Subject: Pictures of Mohammed (P.B.U.H)

I understand that the original artists have a right to freedom of expression. However what is gained by reprinting the cartoons? The people you published those cartoons and hate mail were well aware of the impact they would have. Understand this, just because one has a right to do something, it does not mean that should be done. What good is accomplished by the hate emails and cartoons. True muslims believe in Jesus, and would never disrespect him in any way. We simply believe that our beloved prophet was the final messenger from god. Rather inciting each other, wouldn't it be more productive to work at the differences. Historically both christian and muslims have fasely used religon as a means and a vechile to distribute violence. It turly hurts me that there is so much hate in the world. The modern world is a gobal village, if we continue to divide and hate each other, the result will be violence.

Subject: Useless powergame

I am a atheist; and I think Gods (all!) are only results of fear of primitive people (everywhere and in all times). I am not offended by the cartoons. But this publishing act leads to nothing. You were as a site a better site if you had placed Jesus cartoons.

If we want a better world we have to look at all evil things and start with ourselves. And then you see the wrongdoing of the followers of that Christian god, of the Christian mullahs (popes), Islamic god and the Islamic mullahs.

It is a comparable with the political situation; with the axe of evil (Bush). Bush should have started with looking at the wrongdoing of the USA, of Israel, and after that at the wrongdoing of Iraq, North Korea etc.

Unless of course you don't want or you don't believe in a better world.
But then you are the aggressor. A better world starts by being better yourself.

Comparing crimes without taking your own crimes into account is an old power game of the Christian world, hypocritic as hell and every action will lead to an contra-action. A lose lose situation.

This is for all those who are Muslim and who are not...

I am from Bosnia and Herzegovina and was a victim of ethnic cleansing by Orthodox Christians and Catholics. My father's family is Muslim and my mother was half Catholic and half Orthodox. My family and I were chased out because of our last name, which is Muslim, despite the fact that we are not even practicing Muslims....

Now that I am in graduate school and studying literature, I have become interested in Islam and why so many people are angry with this peaceful religion. The Muslims in Bosnia ARE NOT FANATICS AT ALL, yet were labeled so by the Serbs and Croatians, who are in fact the fanatics! There is such a thing as Christian fanaticism, let's not kid ourselves. In studying the Qur'an and Islamic art, YES it is true that Mohammed is depicted in numerous paintings, as is Abraham, Moses, and even Mary and Jesus. Islam is a religion that encompases all religions and the Ottoman empire actually allowed Christians and Jews to live amongst them, as long as they paid taxes.
...

Now, as far as your website is concerned, those cartoons are disgusting in my opinion, but I understand the need for freedom of speech. BUT WHERE DO WE DRAW THE LINE? Like someone posted on this website before, lets put naked pictures of your mother and call it freedom of speech, that is just as offensive to someone else. I understand what you are trying to do with those pictures and the ones from the 7th century with Mohammed in them, but, again, like someone else said, was he painted as grotesquely as those satirical cartoons? So what if he was depicted in Muslim art before? Does that give anyone the right to draw him with his butt out, or fucking a pig? Maybe they should read and study the Qur'an before they make such decisions. ... What is their message - "I hate Mohammed and Islam"? So, because the Bosnian Muslims were wronged by Christians, I should post my own version of what I think Jesus is really like? Should I draw Jesus fucking Mary Magdalene, because I believe that that is what really happened and who he really was and not some saintly figure?
...

As for those who posted messages such as "destroy the Qur'an and get rid of Islam", I feel sorry for your pathetic bigoted little mind. I wish that you could educate yourself more before making statements like that...whether you realize it or not you are exactly like those who you call terrorist of extremist.

He taught us to love people. ofcourse now there is different type of people and views and claims all are islamic act but try to study the life and teachings of that great man then decide this site is right or not.

Hello everyone from both sides.
here is a little teaching for all of you wether jew, christian or muslim.
We are all slaves of the same kind in chains and burdens 'believe it or not'.
We kill and slander each other without mercy or thought.
we listen to the media and the tv and read lies/fictions which screw the brains.
We are all from different races and creeds with many different colours and languages yet we dont realize the beauty in that alone.
We cannot see passed our own noses and think we are as important as 10 people each.
We have been honoured with greatnesses such as emotions, thought, feelings, ability, motivation, respect, understanding, love and finally peace.

I am not talking from religion but from reality, if you are reading this and cannot understand to agree with it then you are most definately misguided.

Without respect there is no understanding, without no understanding there is no love, without no love there cannot be peace. Look all around the world at all the governing bodies. Can you see any mercy or respect for the people they rule over...........NO! So it is very difficult in such a time to look to yourselves and smell all the badness that we all carry with our misunderstanding of our existance because it has become that way of life for us to accept badness and evils as the norm and rejecting the truth because the truth hurts but truth is reality.



From: Dina A.

Dear all,

I received a forwarded email showing a Lego advert making fun of Prophet Mohammed. The email contained words, much like the Muslim responses on this page, full of hatred for those who had created the cartoon, and full of prayers that those people would burn in hell, lose their children, and suffer from all sorts of torment in life. Would you care to know what my reaction was? The first was the innocent correction to the age of Aisha, that she was 10 and not 6. You may laugh with mockery, but do you know what the second was?

Not many years after Mohammed declared prophecy in Mecca, his followers and him were being subjected to all extremes of torture. The people of Mecca believed that scorching, whipping and beating would lead Muslims to leave their faith. I will not drone on about what Muslims had to endure, but will get straight to the point. Mohammed then went to surrounding tribes of enough strength to ask for their support: he started off by introducing them to Islam. They rejected it. He asked them for protection; that he would bring his people to live among them so that the people of Mecca would not be able to manipulate them; they rejected that, too. He asked them not to inform the people of Mecca of his requests; they said that they would. With no other option left, he asked to at least let him leave; they said he wouldn't leave until he was thrown with stones.

Injured, hurt, and worried, the prophet sat and prayed for God's aid. What would you do if you were placed in a similar situation? Swear? Think up revenge? At least that's what you think he would do, right? Do you know what he actually did? He prayed for God to bring these people to the right path. He said he would not curse them because "he was not sent as a curser, but to bring mercy to mankind."

Did you forget why I'm telling this story? That was my second thought as I read the forward. Why Muslims put so much effort into cursing others when their prophet, their idol, would never have done such a thing.

That said, I did my research on the Internet to see the story behind this cartoon. That's when I came across this website. I looked at the images, the cartoons, and I don't ever remember being so offended. The depiction itself didn't bother me, but it was the content that tore me apart, yet made me the proudest ever to be a Muslim. You know what it's like when people accuse you of something that you know is not true? You put your head high and you walk proudly because, in utmost simplicity, it shows you how much the others don't know. However, when I looked at the posts on this page I was, in all honesty, appalled! Here were the Muslims again, cursing, swearing, and trying to offend others in the same way they had been offended; only to assure them that they deserve to be portrayed the way they are.

Well, I am an Arab Muslim. I read the Quran, I pray, I fast, and I know the basics of the Prophet's life story. I read over the responses and instead of telling you to "read more about Islam," I will provide you with the evidence that will show you the reason why your image of the prophet and of Islam is a stereotyped and incorrect one. ...

[...10,000-word treatise about Islam and Mohammed...]

... A final note to all Muslims who have responded to this site: whether it is the content of the cartoons or the depictions of the prophet that bother you, please go back to the Quran and read God's words: "And insult not those whom they (disbelievers) worship besides Allah, lest they insult Allah wrongfully without knowledge. Thus We have made fair-seeming to each people its own doings; then to their Lord is their return and He shall then inform them of all that they used to do" [6-108].

Thank you for your patience in reading. Please accept my best regards.

dear sir, my name is ahmad, i am a muslim. i have browsed thru your gallery and i thoght that i should respond to you and tell u my honest to god opinion. before starting, i shold let u know that i am a canadian who is an american university in cairo graduate. i have done a great deal of research concerning the persona of the prophet muhammad(saaws); his looks, his appearance and his character traits. as a person who is deeply in love with the prophet muhammad, i browsed thru your gallery hoping to find a depiction that looked like or even somewhat similar to what i know he looks like, but i could not find any. 1400 years ago there lived a man called hind ibn abi hala who got famous among the arabs for his ability for description. this man saw the prophet and described him very carefully. he described a person who looked nothing like any of the depictions on your site. if you really seek the truth regarding this matter i suggest you search for this passage by ibn hala. it is not common and almost 90% of muslims around the world have not read it or even know about it. you may find it in a book called "the lives of the companions" or" the lives of the sahhaba", translated in arabic as "hayyat al sahhaba", vol.1, pages 67 to 80. i assume you are an educated man who is more than just fooling arund, and besides what have you got to lose?

This cartoon thing has left me with a very dim view of the muslim religion.



From: K. S. (Canada)

I'd like to thank you very much for creating this archive. Many of the depictions are realistic.

Please please please post this email somewhere in the "Reader's Email Responses" such that everybody can see because it contains a very important message.

I'd like everybody to know that there are many people like me that are Moslem born, and being called a Moslem is the greatest insult for them. I wish there were some centers, institutes, places, or whatever, that I could go and formally denounce this damn religion. For many people like me, carrying this title (Moslem) is like carrying a piece of a very bad smelling shit.

hi there!
i live in Vietnam. a free country in south east asia. i fell frightened of muslim coutries as Iran. Afghanistan.etc... why they have many terrible laws and orders. I can't understand and i can't stand of them. I vomit over my floor when i heard about muslim people and their "prophet".

From Viet Nam with love to Danish who draw cartoons of what called " prophet". we must say thank to them, because they use their voice for FREEDOM. no one can ban us thinking and saying.



From: Gnostic Dave

Brought up a Christian in Scotland, my freedoms have led me to question the "evidence" which every religion cites as their absolute. I mean everyone has their special book bleating on about "the truth". I see the truth of God's grace in nature, I feel his love and I believe organised religion has done more damage to people's quest for this truth.

The demonisation of Islam is being driven by the American imperialistic plutocracy with the help of the illegal Zionist state and Britain. However after reading the intolerant and medieval tirade from most of the Muslims posting on your site, and seeing the BBC programme "What Young Muslims Think," I suggest that we need to keep tabs on this, yet another evil and controlling religion. In the West we are going through a transition which is uncomfortable and will require people to develop self control and to search for their own spirituality. The evils of religion and crown have been beaten back to an extent over thousands of years of civic strife against a religious power base no one needs.

A warning to all Muslims! You may think we are all weak, but our freedoms were won with blood, and if you intend to force your version of "God's Law" (your version from your wee book), then you can expect tolerant and peace-loving spiritualistic people like me to fucking hunt you!!



From: A.H.

Good day.

I am an ex-muslim who has stumbled upon your site.
I am quite happy to see that you are not (and should not be) afraid of the 'love' and 'kindness' the world of Islam shows.
These pictures are very beneficial, from historical standpoint.

Keep up your good work.



From: L. Batson

Muslims think that if they see an image of Mohammed (whether good or bad) that they will not be able to help themselves and worship Mohammed instead of Allah. This perversion of thought is how we got to where we are now with the clash of cultures that will ultimately lead to the death of billions of humans in the near future. Below is a few lines from the Koran just to point out how this great work of hypocrisy has poisoned the minds of millions people worldwide.

Islam the religion of peace?

"Kill the disbelievers wherever we find them" (Koran 2:191).

"Fight and slay the Pagans, seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem" (Koran 9:5).

"Murder them and treat them harshly" (Koran 9:123).

"Strike off the heads of the disbelievers; and after making a wide slaughter among them, carefully tie up the remaining captives" (Koran 47:4).

"Instill terror into the hearts of the unbelievers"; "smite above their necks and smite all their finger-tips off them" (Koran 8:12; cp. 8:60).

"The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His apostle and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement." (Koran 5:33).

"For them (the unbelievers) garments of fire shall be cut and there shall be poured over their heads boiling water whereby whatever is in their bowels and skin shall be dissolved and they will be punished with hooked iron rods" (Koran 22:19-22)



From: Robert K.

Thank you for displaying these images and giving a forum for muslims to respond. It allows the rest of us to see just how pathological this thought process is.

Islam is spreading. With the exception of Israel, the middle east is lost. Europe and Asia are dying. And the movement is gaining strength in the Americas.

The tidal wave is coming my friends and most of the world does not even see it or, more accurately, refuses to see it. In a hundred years, our wives and daughters will be forced to wear veils; beheadings will be carried out in our public squares; and our cultural beliefs and identities will be taken from us. All while we stand by and watch, afraid to do or say anything because we might offend somebody. If we, the intelligent, peace-loving people of the world don't take some sort of stand against this maniacal ideology soon, then this will all come to pass. If anyone questions this, all they have to do is look at the "offended" section on this page. There is your proof.



From: andreas@....dk (Denmark)

I think it is brilliant that you show such a broad selection of paintings of Muhammad. As a Dane I was shocked to see burnings of Danish embassies and treats against Danes from people who clearly knows nothing about the country. We are not perfect, but we are a quite nice little country and we strongly believe in democracy and freedom of speech. I will actually claim that though I am religious, I consider these values my true religion and Muslims should know, that when they ask us to defy these values, that is pretty much like asking them to wipe their ass in the Koran.

They may be offended, but you know what offends me?
That they execute people for being homosexuals in Iran
That they execute women for committing anything that comes close to adultery
and that they send their children straight into their death and promise them virgins in heaven.
(I know I am generalizing)

I read in the Koran and I fail to see why a book that contains such pacifistic passages can be an excuse for so much violence.



From: L. S.

I'd like to comment on your archive. I think it's quite educational and informative. I enjoyed seeing the pictures of Mohammed that Muslims like to think they can prevent the world from seeing.

My beef with these cartoons is this: it is a cartoon. That's it. Where was the outrage of Muslims on 9/11 or the attacks in London? Where was the outrage of Muslims when Christian schoolgirls are murdered on their way to school? Where is the outrage with so many terrible acts done in the name of Islam? I've "advised" a few Muslims that they get mad when the West presents a stereotype of Islam yet they do nothing to change that stereotype. There is too much within the religion of Islam that they need to change and focus on before they worry about a simple cartoon.

Subject: To the decieved muslims

Your site is very well thought of, but if you really want to "insult" mohamed just tell muslims what he did.

He attacked unguarded caravans and looted them, murdered jews, took females captives and raped them. He murdered countless Jews and constantly through out the hadiths and quran, he insults Jews and Christians. He had sex with a 9 year old girl. This same "prophet" bragged about having sex with 11 of his wives in one night while having the power of 30 men.

He promised virgins in heaven to all who followed him and fought in Jihad. He constantly speaks about killing the unbelievers and that allah will torture all who don't listen to mohamed. He use allah to bring fear to his followers so he can gain wealth, power, and sex from them.

He viewed women as farmland, thought that women are just for the man's pleasure. He orders muslims to beat their wives if they disobey their husband.

He also orders muslims not to befriend Jews or Christians. So who are peaceful muslims lying to when they befriend a Jew or Christian.

And here is some logic for muslims:

Just because the quran says I'm going to hell doesn't make that so.
Just because mohamed says he was a prophet of allah doesn't make it true
Just because he thinks allah is the same God in the bible doesn't make that true
Just because you think the quran is written by allah doesn't make it true

Subject: To the great misled.

Well done for showing what other more 'politically correct' websites would not, keep it going, takes guts! Bravo! I myself had a great chuckle, even though I have a deep pity (slowly shifting to anger) for the hordes of undereducated and brainwashed Muslim masses.

One only has to read the fors & against in this column to see the different levels that Muslims, and other fundamentalists, and the rest of society operate at. Behold the majority of the Muslim responses here are typically, predictably, violent and threatening. As is their way. It is interesting to note most of them are also almost illiterate. Although it is the largest religion on the planet it is widely known that it comprises mainly the poor and undereducated, hence no shortages of radicals.

I have nothing but a deep contempt for most religion. That is in the concept itself, not the people -- each to their own I say and I judge no one on which imaginary friend he chooses to follow. Some of us need that crutch. I prefer to believe in the fundamental inner goodness, or lack thereof of 'Humankind' -- what is within each of us regardless of any 'God'. Be it Catholic, Christian, Jewish, Muslim -- religion is, and has been, the root of most evil perpetrated on this planet. The atrocities carried out in the name of the various gods will remain unmatched in the history of this planet. If religion is a control system (and it is!) then Islam is the sadistic headmaster, the oppressive jailor, the violent censor. I have a Jewish partner, a Christian mother, so am not unfamiliar with the various beliefs, and their inherent, marked differences, even if I choose not to follow them.

While I see many cartoons jokes and jibes aimed at Christians, Catholics, Jews etc, I hear little or none of the petty childish carry on associated with Islamic caricatures. Perhaps it is because most other religions have 'grown up' to some extent and realised that not everyone may share their ideals, and nor can they be forced to, and while it may be distasteful for them to see their gods poked fun at, they simply ignore it, or take it with a grain of good humour. Islam it seems has not taken this developmental step, and insecure, and threatened by cartoons, they scream violence in retribution, as is their cultural way. Interestingly they show no hesitation in poking insults at the Jews and the Christians though, but have violent hissy fits like children if anyone dares question their so called 'Prophet'.

It may be illegal for you Muslims to speak of this so called 'Prophet' in such terms. It is not for everyone else though, they can say what they like. If you don't like it -- ignore it, like other religions do. I will say and think what I please about this particular individual and the fable that surrounds him. Of all the gods & prophets available to choose from, one which has children as consummated wives (is that paedophilia?), oppresses females, oppresses anyone outside their own cultural or religious sphere, oppresses individuality and free thought, encourages Jihads & violence at the drop of a hat (or is that just his followers twisting his word to their own sick requirements? I suspect it is) is at best a dubious, and poorly chosen proposition.

Suyanto M wrote a fantastic response on this page and I take my hat off to him -- well done -- here is a mature ISLAMIC individual saying how it is MEANT to be. I know Muslims as friends, and from what i can gather it seems the vast majority of the fundamentalists have so completely missed the point, got it wrong, been misled, misinformed and wrongly educated. Why? Islam is the greatest & possibly most evil control system of all of them -- thanks to the twisted men and governments who have defiled it and made it so, for their own needs & ends. Unfortunately most Muslims can't or wont see it.

Want a world under Sharia law do you guys? Sure you do. And no doubt you will harbour and nurture your perceived injustices and self perpetuating hatred, brainwash countless future generations (instead of actually EDUCATING them), and kill untold numbers of people in pursuit of this. What is it exactly you are afraid of? What is it exactly you want? Do you even know? Why do you behave like this? Take a good long hard look at Iran, Iraq and other such countries, imagine a planetwide Sharia state with these as role models. It is the stuff of nightmares, a giant leap back into the dark ages. A bloodbath of misery and oppression. It will never happen.

While the rest of the world advances, cooperates and develops these countries slide further and further behind, due mainly to their governments and their bizarre blinkered dark ages belief system. They have oil, for the moment, which has saved them so far. But it's running out. When it does, and everyone else packs up and goes home, where will they be then?

The whole world is watching. And the whole world is getting sick of it. Keep going -- a little longer and if you haven't done it already you will successfully alienate the entire planet from those calling themselves 'Muslim'.

Want to see a world under Islamic rule? Read down the page on the left, that's just a taste. Then turn on the news. Then look around the web about life in Iran.

I apologise in advance to the many respected and moderate Muslims around, some of whom are my own friends, who unfortunately are tainted with the brush that paints their mentally disturbed brothers, but I have to say it:

My greatest contempt is held for the travesty that is the religion of Islam. It tops the list. You are a disgrace to the human race and all it stands for. Use your mind. Grow up. Get real. Get Human. Join society.



Congratulations and thanks for keeping up the right of freedom of expression and not to bow in front of stupidity, force and extremism.

It's however very sad to read some of the offended people's comments and to see what kind of intelligence and ignorance is still existing in this world. It's very scary to see that major parts of humanity are totally narrow-minded and not able to see reason. Religion is really making people monsters and totally evil beings, regrettably there seems nothing human left.

Let's hope for the best that these extremely stupid masses led by evil religious leaders don't destroy our beautiful world completely in the future.

Congratulations to you on your intelligent and objective resource for anyone interested in the Islamic world. It's sad to see that you've been bombarded almost exclusively by emails from nutters. Muslim nutters, Christian nutters, athiest nutters, everyone feels the needs to get their bizarre opinions out there. Your website is a hugely important step in opening a forum for sane discussion of social and religious taboos.

The conflict between religious rights and social rights is a fascinating ethical dilemma facing the modern world. If only more people spent their time trying to come to an understanding of why the world is divided by barriers of race and creed, and stopped picking sides with their fists up. Thank you for your work.



From: S. Bergstrom

Praise be upon you. To defend secularism and free speech these days takes balls, which you seem to have in abundance. Interesting how the Muslim world riots in the streets and shows offense over some harmless depictions of their prophet. But when some masked savage mutters "God is great" as he saws off the head of a journalist in Baghdad, or blows up a cross town bus in Jerusalem or London, or throws homosexuals from a rooftop in Kabul, the Muslim world quietly goes about its business.

Anyway, keep the site up for as long as you can. Well done.

I am a moslem, yet I am enjoying these depiction of mohammad. Nothing is wrong with art and expressing your idea in whatever forms you like. because we all men deverse that kind freedom. Those people who have reacted stupidly and claimed as moslem, there are not. Moslem believe in all aspect of freedoms. Islam also teaches that even to have faith or not is a matter of individual choice, hence your freedom. Islam is not Arab nor Arabic way of life for which has no tolerance in their dictionary. Indeed, true Islam and moslem has.

Subject: A "Pleased" email from an Iranian Agnostic

I found your archive to be very informative and fair. You have done an excellent job of archiving and studying the hypocrisies of Islam. Humanity needs free speech and open discussion to make civilized progress. Muslims around the world need to realize they can not enforce their own moralities on others or expect to be immune to critisism.

Many Westerners also need to realize they can be tolerant and critical at the same time. I was born in Iran, but I've lived in the United States since I was 5. I'm 16 years old and I attend my local highschool in Richmond, Virginia.

In my 20th Century History class, my teacher had us discuss the Danish cartoon and its harsh reaction in the Islamic World in class. I was suprised to see the majority of my white, protestant class mates state that the cartoons shouldn't have printed. Some even stated the government of Denmark should have made such printings illegal. Even in America, the tenet of free speech faces danger.

Hopefully through efforts like yours, and the continued determination of all people who fight for the freedom of the invidual, Islam's vicegrip on nations like my native nation of Iran will be released.

Thank you.

PS: One can not judge the attitudes of the Iranian people by its Government alone. Iranian people have no say in their government. Though many may fit the stereotypes, I promise you, most don't.

My greatest disappointment vis a vis this issue is the cowardice of the US media in not publishing the pictures. In the future, when I hear or read anyone in the MSM ranting about their First Amendment rights, I'll be able to gag with some enthusiasm.

If the major news sources in the US and Europe had simply refused to cave in to the intimidation, a few brave individuals would not now have to be hiding from extremists. Because of failure to meet this challenge head on, more will come; and there will be a severe price to pay in the future.

Thank you for doing the job of our so called free press.

John of Damascus was a Syrian monk who was born shortly after Mohammed's lifetime and who wrote a commentary about Mohammed's followers and the Koran just a few decades after Islam first arose.

Here's a link to an excerpt from St John of Damascus's Critique of Islam, which everyone should be aware of. (In his commentary, "Ishmaelites" is the early name for Muslims.)

I prefer the translation from Wikipedia here:
There is also the people-deceiving cult (threskeia) of the Ishmaelites, the forerunner of the Antichrist, which prevails until now. It derives from Ishmael, who was born to Abraham from Hagar, wherefore they are called Hagarenes and Ishmaelites. And they call them Saracens, inasmuch as they were [sent away] empty-handed by Sarah (ek tes Sarras kenous); for it was said to the angel by Hagar: "Sarah has sent me away empty-handed" (cf. Genesis xxi. 10, 14). These, then, were idolaters and worshippers of the morning star and Aphrodite whom in fact they called Akbar (Chabar) in their own language, which means "great". So until the times of Heraclius they were plain idolaters. From that time till now a false prophet appeared among them, surnamed Muhammad (Mamed), who, having happened upon the Old and the New Testament and apparently having conversed, in like manner, with an Arian monk, put together his own heresy. And after ingratiating himself with the people by a pretence of piety, he spread rumours of a scripture (graphe) brought down to him from heaven. So, having drafted some ludicrous doctrines in his book, he handed over to them this form of worship (to sebas).
Keep in mind that John of Damascus lived as a Christian under the Caliphate within 100 years of the death of Mohammed.

You can find more in the book The Heresy of the Ishmaelites by St. John of Damascus (judging by the price, a rare book).

From: Zdzislaw M.

Dear Zombietime,

I love your site. I love it, because it is not just a few caricatures but a fine scholarly study of the issue.

The only place where Koran says anything about images is in Chapter 21, The Prophets, verses 52, 53 and 54, which state:

21:52 When he said unto his father and his folk: What are these images unto which ye pay devotion ?

21:53 They said: We found our fathers worshippers of them.

21:54 He said: Verily ye and your fathers were in plain error.

And this is all. The "he" in these three verses is Abraham.

There is just no prohibition on drawing, painting, sculpting or photography in Koran -- generally; and in these three verses we aren't told what the actual error was: was it the act of worshiping the deities that the images represented or the images themselves? Clearly there is a difference between representation and the actual object.

And, of course, there is nothing in Koran about images of Mohammad.

So why the whole affair?

The problem is that by and large Muslims don't know their own religion. What they believe in is what they are told to believe in by their wretched power greedy clergy, and they don't check things for themselves. Few of them have ever read the Koran, because they're not allowed to read Koran in translation, and the ancient Arabic of Koran is about as comprehensible as Latin to most Muslims today, even Arabs. So they just prattle the mantras and call this piety. Some have even memorized whole passages of Koran without understanding a word. They're just sounds.

What they never ponder on either is that Mohammad was illiterate and never wrote a word of Koran himself. Some of his pronouncements were jotted down on pieces of bone, parchment or bark by occasional scribes---but there were no stenographers back then and writing anything by carving it on pieces of bone is not easy, some may have been recalled later, correctly or incorrectly, and most were probably forgotten altogether.

Some 20 years after Mohammad's death in 632, Uthman ordered that Mohammad's utterances be collected and written down. His scribes, that included a fellow named Zayd, were presented with trunks and jars full of bones, parchments, without any ordering and it was up to them how to make sense of it all. Since the stuff was incomplete, they had to help themselves with oral messages and decide which were the right ones to boot because by then many different versions existed. None of the scribes has ever met Mohammad in person!

The result was a text "strikingly lacking in overall structure, frequently obscure and inconsequential in both language and content, perfunctory in its linking of disparate materials, and given to the repetition of whole passages in variant versions." [Crone and Cook 1977]. I read the Koran myself, from cover to cover, and a very painful and boring exercise it was, and thoroughly agree with this assessment.

But then, Muslims don't read this stuff anyway. They just worship it, and this is the core of the trouble. And isn't worshiping a book idolatry for starters? And isn't attributing a poorly compiled text, full of cruelties, absurdities and contradictions, to God, downright offensive to the very God they worship? And isn't killing people, burning embassies, and throwing fatwas around offensive to the very God they worship either?



From: J. Page

The operative word in Islamic law is Islamic. To all the displeased Muslims emailing you and telling you that "You must not show pictures of Muhammed, etc", I have this to say: You may not post pictures of him. Islamic law does not apply to me, nor to anyone else who does not believe in the Islamic faith. You cannot force your religious rules on us, regardless of how important you feel them to be. If you are offended by the pictures of Mohammed, then don't look. That is a far better solution than calling the operators of this website "Pig mother fuckers".

I'm from Denmark, so I know, what it's all about.

That's why I feel so sorry for the muslims, for it seems they are the only ones who don't know anything about Muhammed (No peace on him). I see here and I read in the papers, that they think he is/was a nice man. When will they ever learn, they have been fooled for one and a half thousand years.

Muhammed (No peace on him) is the biggest catastrophe in mankind ever. As long as his believers stayed at home in the desert, he could only make a Hell for his own people, but now, where his people are spreading all over the globe, we are all suffering because of him.

We are in the West blamed for not finding the mass destruction weapons in Iraq. I have tryed to tell where to find them. They are hidden in every bookshelf, in every school, in every mosque: it is the Koran.

Destroy the Koran, and peace on earth will grow up quickly.



From: Egyptian ex-muslim

I'm really glad to see this website, I'm an Egyptian ex-muslim, and the fucking religion of peace kills those who decide they like humans, and no longer wanna butcher them and quit islam!!!!!!!!

these cartoons are nothing like what mohammed really looked liked, he is by far more fucking ugly and I am not saying this out of hate, oh no but out of study, I have studied this sick cult all my life let me share with you how that drag queen diva/ sadist / pedophile they call prophet of allah looked like.

mohammed's discription according to hadith books with proof from saudi arabia's website of the "ministry of islamic realtions of dawa and irshad" that documented his biography.

1- mohammed was a peroxide strawberry blond, he used to dye his grey hair red with henna till he died in his 60's, i want u to imagine the orange reddish color of henna on originally grey hair and its terrifying glow, isn't he a fashion victim or what? it didn't stop there he also ordered all the muslims to change their hair color to red when they grow old so they wouldn't look like the christians and the jews the sons of pigs and monkeys when they grow old!! as stupid as this sounds that's what islamic books state.

2- mohammed used to wear aisha's dresses!! oh yeah, and i wonder how he wore them! he married her when she was six, yeah that's right six, and he died when she was 18 so they must have been pretty tight showing all his curves and shit, ewwww. and here is my proof.

3- mohammed used to wear eye-liner 3 times a day!! and here is my proof from muslim's islamic biography of mohammed as well.

4- mohammed used to WAX HIS ASS! oh yeah that's what i said wax his ass, guess where is it published? in a saudi arabian website that documented his biography i wanna hear a muslim bitching about the homosexuallity in the evil west. and here's my proof.

5- mohammed had very fair skin on his thighs, how do i know? his boyfriends stated it in his biography too!!

6- also he had his 4 frontal teeth missing when he got beaten up trying to behead and steal non muslims in arabia in the war of Ohod as documented in all his arabic biography books.

i guess the muslims ought to apologize to demark and thank the cartoonists for drawing him looking like a person!! and if this isn't the discription of a flamboyant drag queen diva then what the hell is???!!

I appologize if describing mohammed as a drag queens offends any of them, i really am sorry to use the term, but he really was one.



From: S. Pool

To those who don't like the Mohammed Image Archive, I say bous tizi ("kiss my ass" in Arabic). If the muslims who take offense can't understand freedom of speech, then you are a people that have to be led like sheep, and can't live any other way but conquered.



It's funny how all the Muslims who are offended by the pictures don't realize that there is an option available to them....DON'T VISIT THE WEBSITE IF IT OFFENDS YOU.

I also wonder how many of these practitioners of the "Religion of Peace" have no problem with torture/beheading videos being hosted on the internet, yet will go ballistic over pictures of Mohammed.

After much study and review of Muslim culture around the world, I've come to the conclusion that Islam is a violent supremacist cult that is not compatible with western civilization.

From: Brian K.

I read letters from all of these stupid people defending Islam, and laugh. Only when you die, will you find out that your "religion" has been a farce ever since its beginning. Mohammed was a lawyer looking to make money starting a religion, so he used one of the "thousands of Gods" available at the time to start it. He picked Allah, who was one of many, many false gods worshipped at the time. He started this idiotic religion and it's grown over the years. Mohammed is NO prophet of God, only a false deity. This "religion" is not about peace at all, you fucking morons. It's about converting the "pagan world" to Islam by any means necessary, including acts of cowardice martyrdom. You people preach peace, but you have war in your hearts. All Islamists will find this to be true only when they die and awake in Hell. Allah is false and Mohammed was a blistering idiot.

Subject: GREAT WEBSITE!

The fact that so many islamofascists love to write hate mail to you, most in an english that even a 2nd grader could write better (comes with being a camel-riding, non-thinking follower of a dirty pedophile) - is proof enough that your website is just wonderful.



From: Mario T.

Firstly, I would like to say thank you for the site--it is of great value to people looking for various images of Muhammad (pbuh). I am a young student who has, for almost a year now, been studying Islam. I honestly see it, when I look at the Qur'an and the Hadith, for the most part, as a wonderful religion of peace, tolerance, etc. All those good things.

However, I find it sad how so many Muslims take such a small minded, conservative and sometimes quite violent view of what is, quite frankly, a very liberal text/religion for the time it was born. Many muslims seem to focus on things that are not important and I sincerely believe Muhammad (pbuh) would be saddened by how some have twisted his words--if muslims want to please Muhammad (pbuh) and God (Allah) then they should focus on bringing peace, democracy and the great values, by and large that the Qur'an promotes. I hope they can find their way.

On the other hand, I believe the West is sometimes completely insensitive and ignorant of Islam. I completely believe in freedom of speech, and hence praise your site here. But seeing some of the completely false and ridiculously negative/offensive cartoons of Muhammad (pbuh), it makes me wonder how the West can believe itself superior--it is just as childish as Muslim (not Islamic, there is a difference) countries. I'd fight for the West, and anyones right, to post completely offensive cartoons anyday, but dont Western cartoonists, scholars, etc, think it would be better to show accurate depictions of Muhammad (pbuh) rather than what they do show? What is gained from some of these awfully offensive cartoons? I cannot tell. I think the West is still very ignorant of Islam and the Qur'an and Muhammad (pbuh).

In closing, in just this short time I've been casually studying Islam, I've come to feel a great affinity for Muhammad (pbuh)--he, like Jesus or Buddha, is an example for a world that is, frankly, filled to the brim with predominantly idiotic, and ignorant, people. I think the East needs to chill out--focus on true problems: stopping violence and un-Islamic oppression in your countries; and the West needs to do some serious studying: few Westerners truly know anything about Islam and think it is this violent religion.

To Muslims who get unbelievably violent over things like toons I give this quote from Muhammad's (pbuh) farewell address before his death--"Beware of Satan for the safety of your religion. He has lost all hope that he will ever be able to lead you astray in big things, so beware of following him in small things." Wake up and start living the truth of your prophets words, stop making a mockery of your religion and wonderful culture and show everyone the true, democratic spirit that was the foundation of Islam.

And to Westerners who degrade the image of Muhammad (pbuh), I remind you that he gave women the right to vote (over a thousand years before the U.S. did), he promoted equality and peace and even in his worse moments (the massacre of the approx. 1000 Banu Qurayza Jews, which everyone loves focusing on, even though he judged them, traitors, by their own Jewish law) he was much more peaceful than many characters in the Bible. Just read the Book of Joshua--he destroys Jericho, then some 29 Kingdoms and then 12,000 at Ai and he kills not only men and kings but women and children. And that is just Joshua. Do your reading and stop ignoring the fact that Israel is just as violent, crazy as extreme muslim countries...almost all of Europe has realized this but America is still blind.

Thanks for the site, which has provided me with some glorious and beautiful images of Muhammad (pbuh), i.e. on the Miraj, receiving revelation through a flaming halo, etc. Peace to everyone and I hope we ALL see the error in our ways.

How dare you insult the religion of so many nice and peaceful people!

As you can see, Muslims are well educated and deeply committed to their teachings. They know the meanings behind their beliefs and why they must not view the image of their prophet.

They have come to your site (despite of its content) to strengthen their beliefs and you have made them corrupt!



From: Will H. (UK)

I suspect that most of the ranting we see here from people claiming to be Muslim has a lot more to do with their own pride than with any offence taken on behalf of their religion.

Anyway, surely God, and Mohammed, can look after themselves, and don't need the support of bigots.

As regards accepting restrictions to my freedom of expression to prevent offence being taken by people who are continuously on the lookout for excuses to take offence - well - thanks but no thanks.



From: dwainen@....net

The tirades coming from the viewers are as interesting as the illustrations. If anyone would take the time to read up on Mohammed and his teachings, they would realize, Allah and God are not the same. One wants us to have love and compassion for all people, the other wants hatred and death to infidels. Which would you follow?

Great work. So just when did it become taboo to show Muhammad in picture?

If it is not allowed to draw him, is it not allowed for Muslims to view him?

Without a drawing how do we know that he was not a woman?

So if I draw a dog or pig and label it Muhammad, is it truth or absurdity?



From: Bjorn (Norway)

I must say you are very brave to put these pictures on the web. I have copied some of the pics and sent them by email to all my friends, and they are sending them further on.

Reading the response on this page from (I believe) Muslims, I think it says everything about what Islam have done to many Muslim people.

The fact that pictures of Mohammed are forbidden in Islam does not go for me. I am not a Muslim (nor do I belong to any other religion) and I can't see that Islam law and commandments have anything to do with me.

The fact that people are hurt in their feelings, is not my problem. I can not be responsible for other people's feelings, as they do not have the responsibility for my feelings.

I hope you are publishing more Mohammed cartoons and pics on this website, and I promise I will send them further on.



From: Stilgar F. (Bulgaria)

It is really nice you collected those pictures. It is
not about the insult. It is about the right to insult.
It is about values and our value is the right to
insult. If the muslins don't like it they are free to
leave Denmark (and the rest of the Western world) it
is their right to boycott Danish goods but they can't
take away our right to insult.

To all those muslins who will read the e-mails on the
website and pretend Mohhamed is holly and so on... Why
don't you protest terrorism in his name? Why don't you
demonstrate against September 11th? Isn't killing so
many people more blasphemous than some pictures?

Subject: Iranians

It's good to have different cartoons from different opinions here.

As an Iranian I'd like to ask you please do not mix the origin of Persia with Islam (no offence to any body). Iranians where the only nation that didn't start a war for religion. The first declaration of human right was declared by Cyrus the great the king of Persia. Iranians build the Suez Canal. Iranians were the only nation that were under the conquest of Arabs but after 300 hundred years they restore their language and culture (the same thing for Alexander and Mongols). For us Alexander, Mongols, and Arabs are the same. Iran was unlucky that the revolution (1979) happened (although it would have happened because of the big difference between the poor and rich). Iranians serve the humanity more than any other nation. Unfortunately these days because of the political situation there is nobody that supports this great nation. They have been crushed between the West and Islamic world. But God knows that the reality is different. Persian girls are the most beautiful women on the earth.

Let's forget about all these things.

There is no reason that people fight each other. With all the resources that we have on earth any single individual on earth can live happily with no problem. Let's forget all the hates. Let's get together. Let's be friend. Let's respect science and engineering. I'm crying now. Why we should fight for bullshit. It's enough.

But I have problems with the comments from the so called moslems, they swear and curse at you using obscene words for being profesionals. Is this what Islam teaches? Is this what their so called prophet muhammad taught them? You can agree with me that, their (moslems) approach to religious issue is quite different to the approach taken by christians. Christians are understanding and do not condone violence, terrorism and murder of innocent people. This then speaks volume of these two religions.

How many wives did prophet muhammad marry? So many wives because of his insatiable lust.

Reading some of the reactions of people to your site is very interesting, even made me laugh. How can people be so intolerable? Why do they care of what we laugh about? Why do they want to control our ideas and mind. Why do they try to hide the truth?

Your pictures clearly shows that the claim: "Pictures of the prophet are forbidden" is incorrect. This must of course be a difficult message to some fanatics.

When religious leaders start to control politics terrible things happen. People should learn to be critical to their leaders as well as to their religion.

To the fanatics I have really one question: Why young kids are blowing themselves up? Don't you love your children? Can't you stop them? Why your religious leaders don't show some more courage and make some good examples in blowing up themselves. After all they will be martyrs and go straight to Allah. It is easy to control the mind of a kid, so easy to let them do your dirty jobs. But what if your kids went straight to hell because of the innocent people they killed?

Dear sir,

I truly hope the free press of Europe will not be afraid of the reaction of the Muslims. The Muslims have said and written more vile things about the Christian faith and Jews than we can ever draw. I live in a Muslim majority country and they can say anything under the sky about the Christians but we cannot utter anything negative about their 'Holy' prophet who married an underage girl.

I think you have to let the people of Europe stand up in unity and if it is necessary send those muslim in Europe back to their homeland if they cannot understand the freedom you have.

Thank you.

Subject: cartoon in the mind

Do we Muslems condem our self when we picture Muhamed in the mind?



From: S. Prakash (India)

Respected Sir,

Please publish this message so that the world can analyse the problem haunting Islam.

The reaction of the muslim community to the cartoons of Prophet Mohammad clearly shows their gross intolerance to criticism and the freedom of the press. It is needless to say that this is the reason for many muslim dominated nations to be under military rule (dictatorship). Even though Islam doesn't preach violence or terrorism when the freedom of speech, freedom of press and freedom to women is curbed all minute crimes in the society grows and grows until it explodes like a volcano creating widespread violence within the muslim community and also with the other religious groups. It's basically the inability to accept criticism in the pretext of it as unislamic is the cause for terrorism and violence eventhough islam may not preach it.

The muslims has to accept criticism for their own good and only then can other religious groups respect Islam or else it will be perceived as a dictatorship religion with the muslims being slaves to their religion. There has to be freedom to criticise and scrutinize everything including the government and the religion and not just accepting it blindly or rather accepting by fear of hardcore muslim fundamentalists. For those who doesn't beleive that many muslims follow Islam because of fear there are many instances to cite as examples of these including the threatening of the muslim women in hardcore Islamic countries (Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, etc) to wear 'purdah' (the black cloth covering head to toe), warning against Sania Mirza in India, threatening to Pakistani actress Mira, threats to many authors in Pakistan who expose the reality, in India a kerala muslim girl warned because she was learning Bharatanatyam (a form of dance linked to Hinduism), the practise of honour killing in Pakistan's country side (husband killing his wife if she were to get attracted to other men), etc. The above said instances were the one that I can recollect at this moment but there are innumerable such instances. Once the freedom is given to the muslims from the clutches of Islamic laws only then the muslims can really understand what Islam is and they will respect and love their religion and not accept it by fear.

Even though the cartooning of Prophet Mohammad can be regarded as blasphemous those who knows Islam and respects it will not just consider the cartooning of Prophet Mohammad and will neglect it. Violent agitation will generate still more criticism against the Islam and it's followers. There has been instances of insult and blasphemous act to other religion also like reciting Bhagvad Gita (the most sacred scripture in Hinduism) in the Hollywood movie 'Eyes Wide Shut' during a group sex scene and the destruction of Lord Buddha statue in Afghanistan which was a world heritage site. What else can be more blasphemous than reciting the holy Bhagvad Gita during a group sex act and the destruction of the Lord Budda's Statue and yet the protests were insignificant. In Christianity, everybody has the right to question and criticise anybody and anything including the Bible.

The time is not far away when muslim community starts recognising all other religion and it's people as unislamic and starts a jihad. This fact is not an exaggeration when people can realise for themself that many muslim dominated countries identifies itself as an islamic country rather than a secular one. The nonmuslim world has been very tolerant to their muslim citizens while nonmuslims in muslim dominated nations are neglected and they don't have the right even to practise or profess their religion in public. In India, muslims have their own islamic courts which gives judgement to not only cases relating to islam but all cases and in general gives judgement according to Quran and the laws enforced by many of the muslim board. I was surprised to know that many muslims in India don't sing or honour the National Song because it is related to Hinduism and so is unislamic. They neither honour the Supreme Court nor the Constitution of India or it's National Song. The time is not far away when the Muslim citizens of America or the Europe disrespect their country's law and it's Flag or the Anthem saying it as unislamic.

I am writing this so that everybody understands the problem (both muslims and nonmuslims). Muslims who reads this has to, if not accept my criticism, at least consider the criticism or try to analyse the problem and not to get violent or get raged and protest. It is for the betterment of Islam and to gain respect for the religion that I think does deserve but not it's people who applies Quran in such a way and to create such islamic laws that it becomes incompatible with other religion.

Thank you for this site, and for not "fearing" the irrational threats listed on this page.

Here's a wake up call for any muslim who reads this: Everyone on this earth has their god given freedom, and if they don't do what you want them to, then TOO FREAKING BAD!!!!!!!!!! You may be fine with abusing your women, filling your children's minds with hate, and doing all you can to fight the advance of peace and prosperity in the Holy Land and worldwide, but guess what? The rest of us want PEACE, and it will happen, with or without your help. Your intolerance and vitriolic hatred will alienate the rest of the world, and soon you will learn that the rest of us do not seek violence, but we will answer in kind. You claim to be the "religion of peace", but so far, you haven't done anything to justify that far-fetched claim. Last I checked, deliberately targeting innocent civilians, women, and children in horrific terrorist attacks isn't considered peaceful. And as for being offended, so what? Quit being so touchy.

From: Marat M.

Just wanted to say I appreciate someone who does their research. The reactions you got from many Muslims are startling, they really speak of a hatred and intolerance to anyone who opposed their views. Orthodox Jews don't approve of people saying the full name of God, and in fact Judaism never fully writes out the name of God in English or Hebrew, but NO Jew is asking all others to stop writing God. The other fact is, Muslims historically (more recently) have not respected other religions as they say. The Taleban knocked down ancient Buddha statues in Afghanistan because they wanted to purge the nation of Buddhism. Islam "tolerates" other religions as long as they are viewed as subordinate to their own.

Reading these reactions to any sort of presumed disrespect really shows how some Muslims do not believe in any tolerance, only the subordination of others.



From: JerDal

Muslims cannot tell us not to print cartoons or illustrations depicting Mohammed. As one writer put this: There is nothing in the Koran in banning images of Mohammed. Apparently, this custom had stemmed over hundreds of years, from mullahs in the Islamic world.

Also, as for myself, I am sick and tired of the violence, and arrogance, from the Muslim world. Personally, I think in that the cartoons and illustrations were very appropriate, and printable. The root of the problem is the extent of Muslim violence. This is the time in that we stand up, as our own individual persons, not to be pushed off by people with their violence and arrogance.



From: Russell B.

Just a little bit of reality for all of you muslims.

Allah, the god that you pray to is really Satan. That is why you are all so hateful. He is the father of lies and a murderer. That sounds like the little g god that you serve. That would make Mohammed a prophet of the devil. He is sitting in the pits of hell awaiting judgment from the God of this universe. Your god (Satan) has no power and will be judged by God. Your paradise will quickly be turned to ruin after you die.

Subject: Finally they reveal their true selves and hate

Thank you for allowing us Westerners to get a good look at how evil Muhammad was. I found the works very telling, i.e. women hanging from their breasts in hell because they left the husband's house and showed their hair. Great respect the muslims have for their women. And the muslim man is very secure in himself, so much so that his wife cannot show her hair because she might end up having sex. Very masculine and very virile.

It is simply astounding when these poor freaks think they are going to get 72 virgins for being murderers in the name of this cult leader. My question is: what happens to the wives of these freaked out suicidal maniacs when they die -- and will their husband really want them if he has 72 new virgins? Seriously -- muslims really value women. It appears to me women in the muslim world are treated like cattle or horses with no life of their own and certainly no value once they have had sex.

The best part of this site was to see the harsh, hateful and sinful reactions of these poor muslims. The nasty words, the hate, the mouth -- real issues. They go on about how wonderful thir religion is, but all I see is women suffering, children not allowed to be children, hateful words, shouting in the streets, murder, mayhem.



Love the site. Muslims need to start living in the 21st century. Stop being offended by trivial matters that modern man would let go over their heads. Deal with the things that matter. Deal with the murdering scum within your midst. Start helping the refugees from Muslim countries that you expect the west to help when there's trouble. You live in the middle ages; even your calendar is six hundred years behind us. Westerners know there is no supreme being watching over us, it's all bullshit designed to keep backwards people in their place. The sooner you realise this the sooner you can catch up with the rest of the world.

From: M. M.

We have entered the Cartoon Wars. This is a propaganda war in which fascist Islam is proclaiming that whatever they don't like, or find offensive, is punishable by death.

The reactions to the cartoons printed in the Danish newspaper, the Jyllands-Posten, range from hundreds of thousands of angry Muslims rioting, murdering and burning down buildings, to some commentators in the United States who deplore the Islamic reaction yet proclaim that it was "stupid,"unwise" or simply "wrong" for the newspaper to publish these cartoons of Mohammad, considering the violent reactions throughout the Islamic world.

We are at war with fascist Islam.

Those who believe that it was "stupid" to publish the cartoons and "stupid" to continue publishing such inflammatory material are wrong. They are dead wrong.

They are surrendering to fascism.


The Jyllands-Posten was doing what newspapers do all over the world. They published a controversial article. This article was about whether or not Danish cartoonists were intimidated by fear of retribution by fascists, who claim to be Muslims, if they were to depict the Muslim prophet, Mohammad.

We, who claim to live in the Free World, are fighting a war against these particular fascists who claim the religion of Islam as their primary weapon. These fascists use extreme violence and murder to propagate their goal of making everyone in the world, "a slave, a Muslim or dead."

Islamic Fascists daily proclaim that their goal is to make the entire world "a slave, a Muslim or dead," and they proclaim that it is a holy mission. Those that cherish free speech and believe that they should have the right to insult murderers and terrorists acquiesce to this self-proclaimed mission of Islamic world domination when they chastise the Jyllands-Posten for being "stupid" because they printed cartoons that inflame the Muslim world, or when they remove funny websites because they are offensive to Muslim fascists.

This is a serious mistake.

We are currently at war with two particularly virulent forms of Islam that believe in total world domination through murder and violence. The largest and most successful of these two forms of fascist Islam is Wahhabi Islam, which is a cultic form of Sunni Islam begun 250 years ago in the sands of the Najd of Saudi Arabia. Using this fanatical and intolerant form of Islam, the House of Saud managed to subjugate and conquer the entire Arabian peninsula, murdering hundreds of thousands and destroying whole cities, including all of the holy shrines of Mecca and Basra in Iraq, where Shia Islam originated. Saudi Arabia today exports this cult of fascist Islam to every country in the world and has been doing so for over fifty years. This latest Cartoon Jihad was planned and agreed upon by 57 Muslim countries that met in Mecca, Saudi Arabia, in December.

It is this extreme, cultic form of Wahhabi Islam that prohibits their prophet from being depicted in pictures. As it prohibits any form of adulation to anything other than what Wahhabists decree is holy. These fascist Islamists destroyed all of the holy Muslim shrines all over the Middle East which were sources of pilgrimage for over 1,000 years. It was these fascist Wahhabist Taliban that destroyed the statues of Buddha in Afghanistan. These cultists believe that all people, including non-Wahhabist Muslims, are liable for death and destruction if they do not accept this fascist, Saudi Arabian, theocratic cult of death and destruction.

These same fascist Muslims are at war with the United States of America and attacked us on 9/11. Osama bin Laden is a Saudi Arabian Wahhabi. And now, through their acts of war, specifically the burning down of sovereign Danish embassies, they have declared war on Denmark and anyone else that would insult them for their murderous ways.

When the cult of "Wilayat Al-Faqih," the Rule of the Jurist, which is the fascist Shia cult practiced by the mullahs in Iran and hated by most Iranians, is added into this savage war, the result is two fascist powers vying for dominance in this war against the West and, against each other. Who can burn down more embassies? The Iranian backed Shia or the Saudi Arabian backed Wahhabis? Who can cause more destruction? Who can generate more fear?

Because that is their aim: to generate fear and sow terror amongst their enemies -- which is anyone who refuses to believe what they believe.

The goal of our enemy is to make it illegal and immoral to offend the fascist forms of Saudi Arabian and Iranian Islam.

Their goal is to enforce the belief that when fascist Muslims are insulted, it is legitimate to murder people, burn down buildings and riot.


In ordinary Western countries, when people commit these kinds of crimes, they are labeled for what they are: criminals.

In ordinary Western countries, when people blame their criminal actions on others because "they made me feel bad" or because "I am offended," we call these kinds of people psychotic.

The claims and the behaviors of Muslims who support this kind of fascist violence is criminal and psychotic. The behavior of the Danish newspaper that printed these cartoons is ordinary and mundane. They behaved as newspapers have always behaved. They published material that some people find offensive. That's all they did.

It is not their fault or responsibility that psychotic, criminally insane, fascist, Muslims were offended and therefore burned down buildings and murdered people.

The Jyllands-Posten should have published the story; should continue publishing stories like this, and so should everyone else. Every television newscast; every magazine; every newspaper, should show these cartoons over and over again to simply prove the point that we will not surrender to the whims and psychosis of criminal, Muslim fascists.

We are in a war where the religious fascists are proclaiming that if we print things they don't like; that if we dress in ways that they disapprove of; that if we live our lives in ways that are prohibited by their beliefs, then they will destroy us. And they back up their threats by sending out their Islamic shock troops out in an orgy of destruction and murder.

Every cartoon not published; every word censored for fear of offense; every website removed out of fear, is giving aid and comfort to our avowed enemy.

We are at war with fascist Islam. And every time we allow ourselves to be censored or to change what is ordinary and mundane out of fear of offending Muslims, we are surrendering to their way of life -- which is a way of life that is barbaric, hateful, and violent.

We must not surrender. We must publish.

Well I think that site is very educational, as it may give people who don't know an idea of what Muhammed actually looked like. Those are significant historical pieces of art work, which the whole world should be able to view.

People don't have to look at them if it offends their religious beliefs

Do you honestly think that muhammed would want all muslims to hide his face, if he was a prophet of god, he should want to be seen and remembered not hidden by a shroud of secrecy.

It was only after the 16th 17th century that the religious laws banned the depiction of muhammeds face.

So who gets to decide that then, is it up to someone less holy and prophetic than mohammed to decide not to show his face in art work? I think that its wrong to change the word of a prophet.

Much like christian faiths change the word of god in the bible! To form their new spin off religions.

The whole violence between the shias and the sunnis, is just as pathetic as catholic/protestant. The whole world needs to realise extremist religions and sects that practice this extremism are wrong and they change and manipulate the word of their prophets or gods to control the minds of the weak and willing to do wrongful acts of sectarianist violence, that even god would send you all to hell for.

Where in any religion does it teach us to kill each other because we don't share the same beliefs.

I don't believe in any religion as such, but according to god we are all his creatures and we are all equal. No one set of beliefs is the truth.

And to that idiot who was going on about the jews controlling the world, you have been reading the Protocols too much my friend, don't you know that is called propaganda, and is one of the most famous of its kind?

Had you bothered to read into the Protocols more you would find that it was all just a lot of political propaganda.

Well done to this website, it's a good historical and educational reference and should remain available to all who want to view it.



Thanks for the cartoon input. Just wanted to see what the Muslim uproar was all about.

The Muslim world owes Denmark an apology and the US Newspapers that scream about "freedom of the press" owe the US Public an apology.

Thank God we have the Internet.

Subject: Islamic Fundamentalist Fascists

Thank you Islam for waking up a "Sleeping Giant" in the rest of the cultures other than Islam.

We now are aware of the depraved terrorist murderers that used to hide within the confines of the Islamic "moderate" culture. We are now aware of the Koran and the level of filth it elicits. We are now aware of the fact Mohammed is a pedophile who should be shunned and mocked for that crime alone.

Without web sites that are prepared to show the Islamic Fundamentalist fascist for what they are, murdering thugs, we would still be stumbling along listening to the dhimmis of the left and liberal elite, and being colonised by a culture that wishes to take us back to the 4th Century.

Islam, you have been sussed, and will NEVER be accepted whilst the moronic Islamic Fundamentalist Fascist is part of you.

IS IT TIME FOR AN ECONOMIC FATWAH AGAINST ISLAM AND ALL ITS BUSINESSES. WITHOUT THE SUCCOUR AND REVENUE FROM OTHER CULTURES PURCHASING FROM IT, IT WOULD NOT SURVIVE.

From: Prasad B. (Norway)

guyz,

It indeed is an important archive. I can imagine the hard work behind it. I praise the efforts. Islam is no good a religion for the human race and Mohammad I guess was the biggest fool.



You host a very interesting web site, well organized and to the point. I respect you for doing this and its very helpful in light of the controversy still brewing over the Danish cartoons.

Personally, I find it hard to believe that a depiction of a long dead prophet can instill such anger - causing death and destruction in many cities, but I am also not a religion zealot.

From: K. Nielsen (Denmark)

Thanks a lot for presenting these pictures to the world. A much needed moment of comic relief in these days of religious lunacy here in Europe.

I don't know who is the most loony, these religious submissives, or the politically correct ('halal hippies' is a term sometimes used here, it was coined by a Syrian born Danish MP who himself is a pet hate of the submissive community here) who cannot bring themselves to utter a negative word about the oh so 'noble savages'.



From: Matty Boy

Many of your cartoons depicting Muhammad are absolutely humourous but as a Christian I quickly skipped over the cartoons that contained Yahshua in them. Friend, there are some lessons to be learned. You see although the cartons that contained the Messiah were extremely offensive to me, I did not want to issue death threats and blow you all up because I love you guys. While Muslims respond with hate and murderous intent, I respond with kindness and love. I don't hate anyone at all. I absolutely HATE Islam and that is why I love your Muhammad cartoons so much but obviously the ones that do not contain Yahshua the Messiah.

My reaction and the reactions of Muslims are completely different and are but a mere reflection of what our leaders are truly like and how they teach us how to act and moreover, how to respond to those who offend us. This therefore proves that while Muhammad was the most evil man to have ever lived and is a perfect reflection of Satan as evidenced by the immoral behaviour of almost every Muslim in your "offended" archive, Yahshua the Messiah is a perfect reflection of Yahweh God because He is Yahweh God's physically manifested self and He commands us to "love our enemies" and "pray for those who persecute us" and such is evident in my reaction to some of the cartoons that severely blaspheme my God. Muhammad on the other hand advocated vengence, hate, murder, terrorism and genocide and such is evident in the reactions of Muslims to those cartoons who have the same hatred in their hearts as the 9/11 terrorists. Keeping this in mind, I implore you to judge for yourselves who is more of a representation of the One true and living God -- is it Muhammad or Yahshua the Messiah?

This brings me to my next point. While some of your cartoons are extremely blasphemous because they contain Yahshua the Messiah, Muhammad committed the most heinous blasphemy of the highest order which is by far the worst blasphemy EVER committed by any known man to have ever lived. By claiming that Yahshua - the physical manifestation of Yahweh God - was only a prophet that was second to Muhammad, Muhammad ultimately claimed to be greater than God.
...
Islam is the world's cancerous evil and Allah is the Devil incarnate just as your cartoons so accurately portray.

In the West, we are nothing but ostriches as we have our heads buried deep in the sand regarding our ignorance of Islam and are sitting ducks when it comes to its devastating effects. Alas, how foolish our founding fathers were in their drafting of our constitutions by permitting the infectious spread of that evil cancer of Islam into what are amongst the most civilised societies in the world.

No one in their right mind would ever allow identified gangrene in their foot to spread and infect other parts of the body, especially those parts which are absolutely necessary for its functioning. Nay, the victim contains it by having the gangrenous limb amputated and thereby having separated it successfully, its poisonous spread and fatal destruction are thus prevented.

Likewise, that evil cancer of Islam should have been cut off from the rest of the civilised world and contained in the very dregs of the earth from which it sprang forth, before its egregious filth had the chance to ultimately destroy what it has already destroyed along its perilous path of mayhem, in what were civilised countries - peace, prosperity and liberty.

Verily, Islam is certainly not compatible with democracy by any stretch of one's imagination. It never has and never will be. Remaining blinded by political correctness which in turn is their foolishness and ultimately their downfall, our leaders have sought nothing but the very demise of our society in the Islamic cancer which befell it. Therefore I tell you, never cease nor desist in making more Muhammad cartoons.

Humor, Sarcastic Tones, Cartoons, Religion, and Races are honored by the right of opinion and the freedom of speech and the freedom of the press.

Others who demonstrate against these certain unalienable human rights and freedoms with violence and destructive behaviors are:

1. Against God/Allah

2. They showcase their mental illness

3. They abhor human dignity through a public display of their ignorance while propagating evil in the worst way through the hypocrisy and horrific deeds of their religious beliefs.

The Muslims depict Roman Catholic, Christ, and Jews as infidel pigs in their own cartoons, therefore, all other religions have an inherent right to depict Allah as they see fit!

Sirs,

I am reading such angry responses to a few cartoon images.
The cartoons I believe can be offensive to some...but to the degree you wish to riot or harm others? I have seen television programming...state sponsored....in the mideast, nothing could compare to the way chrisians and jews are depicted! Where are the slayings and riots?
When a Mosque is bombed...what happens to sacred books and literature inside?...possibly burned or destroyed.....but no reaction! A phony story of mishandling the Quran by a gaurd...and screams,riots,death! The murder and dismemberment of young girls is much more serious, than a questionable cartoon...Muslims around the world should ask what is more important and offensive!!

From: Chris B.

Subject: Thanks for informing us.

You know what, this is the first time I have seen all of the 12 now infamous pictures. Thanks for putting that up, without you and others like you I would never have even known what the conflict was about. The press used to believe in freedom of speech, and having all the available information before making decisions, but they won't give me the information in this case.

Now that I can see how only a few of them are insulting at all, and half of them are completely benign, it just underscores how important it is to ensure our freedoms are not compromised.



A few weeks ago, I tried to google to find the pictures from Denmark that had been the center of the cartoon row. I was unsuccessful. Then, a friend wrote in his blog about what is going on, and included a link to your site. Upon arriving at your site, I was quite pleased to not only find the recent cartoons, but many examples of depictions of Mohammed from throughout history. As a historian, I found these to be quite interesting.

I appreciate that you have put all of the various images on display. There is nothing worse than misinformation to get people riled up. Whether or not Muslims are happy about your page should be irrelevant to you if you are not a Muslim. Why should laws from a religion not your own matter to you? I don't go about trying to force people of other faiths to follow Christian beliefs, and I don't think that Muslims should try to dictate to non-Muslims how they should behave. If Muslims are offended by the images you have on display, then they should avoid looking at them.

It seems to me that the most unfortunate thing about this entire controversy is that a few fundamentalists are stirring up emotions in the majority of Muslims. I have a hunch that the vast majority of Muslims, including those involved in demonstrations are genuinely peace loving folks who have been incited to rioting and violence by wicked people who are seeking to instigate a clash of civilizations. I can only pray that cooler heads will prevail, and I think that being able to look at these images is a step in the right direction.

From: Glenn B. (UK)

Imagine if someone (maybe in China) had drawn a picture of the Dalai Lama holding a bomb, and it was published on this site. Can we imagine so many abusive and threatening emails from Buddhists? Burning embassies? Death threats? A good Buddhist would express their opinion whilst wishing only love for the artist and the publishers. If a Buddhist expressed hatred and insults, it would immediately stand out as deeply unspiritual.

By contrast, it is interesting to see how many posts there are here from people who call themselves Muslims, but who just express hatred, as opposed to love.

I notice not a single email from a Muslim condemning all this violent, abusive and threatening language from their fellow Muslims. What does that say to the readers of these emails?

No cartoon can make me think differently about a world religion. But the reaction to this episode from thousands of Muslims is self-defeating, and does little to convince non-Muslims that Islam is widely practiced in a peaceful and tolerant way, rather than mostly in a dangerous and potentially violent way.

If compassionate and peaceful Muslims wish their religion to be perceived as such, then I think it would be a good idea for them to loudly condemn those Muslims who pour out hatred and threats. The compassionate version of Islam needs to be heard above the roars of hate.

It is a very good collection of pics but i think that ALL the hatefull pics that arbian papers and TV stations shows and have shown should be put in here too in a seperate section to kick back on their immoral viws on non muslems, we have major problems in this country and we have about 10-12 pct. of arabs here and they are not respecting the danish people NOR do they respect our cultur or the way we live ( danish lifestyle). so what are they doing in our country ??

From: M. Khan ...@kent.ac.uk

Hi there, I stumbled upon your site today and thought I'd just give you a brief opinion of some of the things you have put on your website. (Don't worry I'm not going to waste your and my time by just putting a whole load of swear words into an email). I found your collection of images of the Prophet Muhammad interesting, although I am a practicing Muslim, I think it's important to realise what history has made of the Prophet and how he has been depicted. I can see you are trying to make a non biased viewpoint by putting up the photos submitted into the Iranian holocaust competition as well as the Jyllands Posten images. You have shown many images, trying to, I believe, put across the message that the Prophet has been depicted in images many times in the past, and that the controversy surrounding the Danish cartoons was ill founded. But the true reason people became upset at the images was not because they just depicted his image, but mocked the Prophet, and by doing so insulted the basis and foundation of what my faith stands upon. Now I am a supporter of freedom of speech, but I believe that with freedom comes responsibility, and I don't believe freedom of speech gives room to let people insult other peoples' culture, creed, race or colour. If the images were just showing the Prophet plainly, then I believe we would have not seen the unnecessary violence across the world as a result of the newspaper's actions.

You have also stated that Muslims themselves are making images of the Prophet, I guarantee you all the images you have on your website that are of the Prophet that are made by Muslims, are done by Shia [Not true -- many are from the Ottoman empire and other Sunni regimes. --ed.], and these people only account for around 10% of the global Muslim population. Many scholars have argued that these images are not permitted, but Shias have their own way of interpreting Islamic texts and to a certain extent still carry out this practice, although today they mostly make images of the Prophet's companions and family, which is disliked, but not forbidden, rather than the Prophet himself.

You also have an image of the Prophet in Microsoft's Age of Empires II game, I assure you that is a fake picture, I am an avid fan of that game and played it many times, and have never seen that picture whilst playing it. [Not true -- the Mohammed image is directly on the Microsoft site itself. --ed.]

I hope you take into account what I have said, on an end note I have to thank you for one thing, your website has shown me that ill feelings towards Muslims and the Prophet Muhammad has been around in Europe for a long time, as can be seen in the medieval images done by Europeans, I think it's a lesson to be learned that uneducated opinions of Muslims in the west have been around for a long time and that it may take a while before people become educated about respect of other peoples' faith and actually bother to find out and understand Islam before they decide to criticize it.

From: Red River

I do not see anything wrong with the depiction of Mohammed cartoons. People draw Rama Krishna, Buddha, Mahavira, Confucius, Tao and many others. No one complains about that. Why are they (Muslims) so much angry with cartoons? Because they feel they are insulted. On the other hand, other religious people have better lives and peace in minds. Muslims always call for all Muslims around the world to be united to fight against other religions. That is something they do not have peace in minds....

You do not have to apologize to any one. This is free world and people have rights to express their feeling. In the United States, people depict any kind of drawings? During World War II, Japanese occupied Southeast Asia and they burned Bible, Koran and many other religious scriptures. Sometimes they cooked pigs at the mosque and they used Koran as toilet papers. ... History repeats itself always. Now the whole world knows what Mohammed is looklike. I really appreciate your newspaper that depicts Mohammed cartoons. In fact, in Asia, two questions for Mohammed remain always that why Mohammed ran away from Mecca to Medina because he claimed he was a prophet, and why Muslims worship the gound instead of sky-where Mohammed and Allah live: why, why, why?

From: Monte G.
Subject: The irony of Violence

Here's what I find so perfectly ironic about the situation. Look at the message of the original Danish cartoon. It's a picture of Mohammed with a bomb for a turban. The message being "Islam=violence". So, in protest of depicting Islam as violent, a whole lot of Muslims get together and burn down embassies and chant "Death to _____". In America, the typical purpose of a protest is to get people to think differently or to show an opposing viewpoint. Somehow, I don't think this particular protest will be very effective in proving the peaceful nature of Islam.



From: Jonathan B. (U.K.)

Thank you for publishing all of these. I wish publications in the UK had had the courage to print the original Danish cartoons but, I suppose understandably, they were scared. All the more reason that we should refuse to bow to Islamic fascism. Note: my problem is with Islamic fascists -- those who wish me, an atheist, to submit to Islamic law and to be compelled, by violence if necessary, to do so. This must be aggressively resisted. I'm not attacking progressive Muslims. I support total religious freedom, freedom to worship any god or none. I'm content for any religion to exist and thrive in the UK. But freedom of expression and equality are articles of faith. They cannot be negotiated.

Much that is inherent to Islam offends and outrages me -- but I do not have the right to prevent its dissemination or publication, and nor should I have. Freedom belongs to us all.



From: Gachophil

I find this "Mohammed Image Archive" is very interesting and educational tool. I thanks to them who ever maintaining it. Many of us have lot to learn from it.

I see few coment about respect, I want to ask them do they have any respect for others (non-Muslim), have some honesty, please.

Here is few thing world should know!

Muslims are the biggest racists in the world. If you say any thing against islam or muslims they come out and protest, vandalize, or kill non-Muslims, so you are not allowed to say anything, but muslims can do whatever they want.

If you are a non-Muslim living in a Muslim country your life will become hell, for example you are not allowed to practice your religion openly, you will not be given opportunities for jobs, education, facilty you name it, you get harrased as a daily rotinly, your woman get raped, in pakistan you are not allow to keep anything but a Muslim name, hence you will be safe if you convert to Islam. These formulas are commonly practised from young to old. I do not belive if you say there is a liberal Muslim or good Muslim because it is very hard to find one, who can think out side of the Koran.

Yet Saudi Arabia finances terrorists and the build of masques over the world. Muslims practice their religion in non-Muslim country without any interfearence but Saudi Arabia does not allow others (Jews, Christans, Buddhists, Hindu, Mormon, sun, tree, caterpiller, etc) to practice or build any church or tample inside Saudi Arabia.

Muslims are allowed to kill but if you resist it they will protest, when Hezbullah kills Jews or Muslims kill Hindus in India or genocide continues in Sudan and Bangladesh, I dont see any Muslims caming out of closet saying, "Stop it, it is wrong". But i find them cheer when they kill or harrass a non-Muslim. The question is, are there any good Muslims ? Who understand human value? What a shame!

If there are any, than they should come out and speak against wrong doing; disregard their faith and beliefs.

What this website has done is brought forth the truth, and what is that truth? That although not all muslims are crazy enough to kill for differences in religious belief; undeniably, as proven by the huge mass of e-mails many rather most of them are. The world is coming to the point where all cultures and religions find a place where they can live as they please worship as they please, and find places in the same society to work and live together, that is the future, and the place where it exists now is called the United States of America, if good always triumphs over evil, then I say we have nothing to fear, for as long as corruption and evil is kept out of the US and its honest message is kept pure, freedom, we can never lose.

From: S. Feinbaum

While I do find the recent illustrations of Mohammed offensive and in ill faith, I find the demands of many Muslims to remove all images of Mohammed everywhere to be an incredible over-extension of their religious philosophy. In our western nations, we respect the religions of others but we cannot adapt our fundamental principals of freedom of expression in order to appease ONE religion. If you do not appreciate our freedoms, then you are welcome to not visit our websites, read our magazines, or visit our countries. I don't intend to go to Mecca and complain that they do not allow non-Muslims there, because I respect the cultures and faiths of other countries.

Most other popular religions do not try and force their beliefs on others. Many religious Jews (orthodox) feel that God's name should never be written in full. They write G-D instead for example. HOWEVER they are not trying to force every person in the world to not write "GOD". That would be ludicrous and impossible. I respect other religions but I do not have to bow down to their principals. DO NOT FORCE YOUR RELIGIOUS BELEIFS ON OTHERS IT WILL BACKFIRE. That goes for ANY religion. The threats of violence attributed to this do more damage to the representation of your religion than good. I know there are many good, peaceful Muslims out there but the ones who threaten violence or encourage over this matter are causing the Islamic faith to be viewed in a bad light to many non-Muslims.

This page is excellent because it proves that Islam has not always banned all depictions of Mohammed! Religions adapt and change and it would be better for their religion to adapt to FREEDOM in the western world than to try to take it away. What you do in your own fundamentalist countries is not my business however, and I will not try and force my own beliefs on you.



From: D. S. W.

First, I thank you for showing the cartoons and even more of the hypocritical ways of some Muslims by showing the historical pictures. At first, I thought publishing the cartoons just wasn't a very nice thing to do and didn't get the point. However, after seeing the reaction of Muslims, I can definitely see why they were published. But, please, do not put down the US for not publishing them. Most of us here in the US have realized what a threat Islam and many Muslims are to our freedoms for a long time now. Our news has published this many times in many different ways. So, there was no real need for us to publish these pictures. I think it's way past time for all of the free world to quit arguing and realize how serious this threat truly is, and the only way we can fight it and win is to unite. I mean, how many more riots and killings do we have to see to realize there are many more than a handful of Muslims who think their religion tells them to fight the infidels until they rule the world? Can we really think that it is just a handful of Muslims that think this way when we see almost the entire Muslim world, according to the Pew polls, have taken bin Laden as one of their highest heroes? And what really should tell us that many Muslims believe exactly as the terrorists do is we never see thousands of them acting as they did over this cartoons when Muslims cut the heads off innocent people they kidnap constantly; or when Muslims purposely kill many men, women and children in Iraq on a daily basis; or when Muslims crash airplanes into buildings in the US, killing thousands of innocent people...and you know I could go on about this all day with so much of it happening for over 40 years. If a bunch of Christians were killing in the name of Christianity, you would see every other Christian in the world protesting to the tops of their lungs against these people that were ruining the name of their religion and God. But Muslims will not even take the blame for ruining the name of their own religion, prophet, and god when it is no one else's fault but their own; yet, as usual, they have to blame it on the west/Israel.

AND THAT IS WHAT YOU TRULY CALL BLASPHEMY - RUINING THE NAME OF YOUR OWN RELIGION, PROPHET AND GOD BECAUSE YOU SUPPORT THE BARBARIC MUSLIM TERRORISTS WHO KILL IN THE NAME OF YOUR RELIGION EVERY SINGLE DAY!!!

The Muslim world lives in a fantasy world filled with nothing but lies, simply because they do not have FREEDOM OF SPEECH. And because they live in a fantasy world and can never face the truth, they blame everyone and anyone but themselves for anything and everything that goes wrong; when in truth, it is no one else's fault but their own. If you can never accept that you are to blame for anything, how do you expect to ever figure out how to fix anything that is wrong in your lives? You can't change anything in your world because you have lied to yourselves for so long, blaming the US/Israel/the west for all your problems that you are totally blind to your own many mistakes/wrongdoings/faults. Until Muslims have freedom of speech, the Muslim terrorists will continue to be able to brainwash many Muslims into thinking anything they want them to think. How Muslims can even begin to think they are such self-righteous, holier-than-thou people, I will never, ever understand. Your world is in such a mess because your priorities are so screwed up that even if you began today, it would take years before you could even begin to become important players in this world, let alone try to rule over it. Wake up!!!

And they aren't the only ones that need to wake up. Hopefully, these cartoons have helped to wake up many others in the world that keep making up excuses for these very real and dangerous people. I know it's hard for all of us in the free world to believe there are actually people that think this way in today's world, but how many people are going to have to be killed to make us all wake up? Muslims are involved in at least 19 of the armed conflicts in the world. Do you think that's just a coincidence?

It is truly a shame that fundamentalist Muslims allow themselves to be outraged over the depictions of Mohammad. However, it is typical of fundamentalists of most, if not all, religions to be outraged over anything their leaders tell them is outrageous. Fundamentalists act like automatons (robots), totally devoid of independent thought or action, and the common thread throughout all religions, is that fundamentalists tend to be less well educated, and often abysmally ignorant.

Moslems object to cartoons of Mohammed because to them he is sacred. I take the word sacred to mean "beyond criticism or ridicule." We commonly use the word in this sense - as when people complain "Is nothing sacred?"

Should some things be beyond criticism and ridicule?

I am not religious. However, I do believe firmly in some things: democracy, tolerance, freedom of expression, the rule of law. Do I consider these things beyond criticism or ridicule? No, definitely not - and for a very profound reason. It is essential to the successful operation of a free society that everything that affects public life is open to criticism. Without that, we are not able to decide whether our current arrangements need changing.

Since most religions - and especially Christianity and Islam - make strong claims to affect public life, it is essential that they are not immune to criticism.

In so far as Moslems (or Christians) believe that their religious symbols are immune to the normal hurly-burly of political life, it is a reflection of the fact that, on some level, they do not believe in the ability of humans to govern their own lives.

To ehsan e., who wrote asking, "what do you know about Mohammad? What do you know about Islam? Or Muslims?" I offer this response. Prior to 9/11, I believed all religions had value and deserved respect. All offered a path to God/Allah/Jehovah, in whatever form, for whatever path an individual choose. The basic tenants of most religions are much the same. Treat others as you wish to be treated. Love one another as you love yourself. It's interesting and oddly comforting to learn that all 3 major world religions -- Jews, Christians and Muslims -- consider themselves to be decedents of Abraham, all consider Jerusalem a Holy City, all believe in one God. It seemed to me that we had much in common.

After 9/11, I've learned to fear Muslims/Islam, or at least radical Muslims. And I learned that I don't know how to tell the difference between peaceful Muslims and radical Muslims, many who live here in the US. I've seen the images of Muslims, happy and proud, as they sawed off the head of Nicholas Berg, 26, an American civilian in Iraq, there to help with the reconstruction of Iraq. I have seen horrific pictures of Muslims dancing with glee in front of the burnt corpses of American civilians strung over a bridge outside of Bagdad. Those images are more horrifying than any cartoon could ever be. Those images are real.

In the searchable Quran on-line is the following scripture; "[5.51] O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people."

This is only merely one example of scriptures relating to Jews and/or Christians in the Quran. There are many. Jews are repeatedly condemned in the Quran. The Christian bible makes no mention of Muslims, good or bad. Christians are not taught to exclude Jews, or members of any other faith, from their circle of friends. Or to celebrate another's destruction, as the Quran teaches.

I was just wondering, shouldn't all muslims punish those Imams who made up such dirty pictures of Muhammad themselves (the last three pics which are most offending)??? Where is their respect for GOD?? OR are you all muslims just blinded by hate against other religion and people that you refuse to accept what your common sense says that its the Imams who made up most dirty pics and that they should be punished??

I have wondered what all the hysteria was about. I see it is just a bunch of fools acting out because they only apply freedom of speech when it is what they want to hear. Example the women who "deserved to be gang raped in Australia" because they had the nerve to leave their homes without veils.



From: musicfreak

id just like to say, i find the responses to this website hipocritical and sad...to think that practitioners of a religion such as islam would be so unintelligent and non thinking in there response is enough on its own to discredit there opinions, but first you must look at there own misunderstandings...

islam, in itself, believes that God is ultimately forgiving, and that the depths of hell are reserved only for the most evil of evil men and women to walk the earth. even so, it is written that even the most evil soul will eventually pay his debt owed to god in hell, and finally join god in heaven. there is no way someone would go to hell for posting a webpage...



Hey man! Thanks for putting all of this in one place. It was pretty difficult finding it anywhere else. We know why none of the major news outlets carry this stuff. Funny how that works- Government censorship is bad; voluntary, pollitically correct censorship is good.

As a Muslim myself, I won't lie to you about how these depictions made me feel. It did hurt viewing your archives, and seeing some of the repugnant images that displayed my Prophet. I found a lot of it hurtful because it doesn't take into account Muhammed's character or his attributes. For that, the pictures lacked substance. They were simply insults; they didn't really glorify free speech or any kind of "stand" against Islam, they were merely perversion.

I think it's important for Muslims to voice their opinions on this matter - on hurtful depictions of all our prophets, not just Muhammed - but some of the responses have been pretty pathetic. For one, Muslims should stop mixing Arabic and English when responding in English. Comments like, "May Allah curse you all," is rather embarrassing. If Muslims want people to understand the faith, speak of it properly. Don't insinuate our God as being someone wholly contrary to that of Christians, Jews, etc.

Some of these Muslims who have responded are rather embarrassing, and people shouldn't take their views as having any more substance than those depictions. I think it's important to let the Danes be the Danes; if they are going to allow artists to depict such drawings, then so be it. Muslims should express their displeasure without resorting to mass protests and outbreaks of violence. Simply understand that secular people, those who either don't practice or simply don't believe, have the right to voice their opinions, no matter how repugnant they might be to us. But coming out here and disgracing the faith with, "May Allah curse you all," is absurd.

My biggest problem with the Danish Muhammed cartoons was that he was depicted as a stereotype - one that has hijacked and polluted the faith - that of a terrorist. Perpetuating such a stereotype makes me realize that newspapers simply want to sell, and cartoonists (or what have you) want to transgress the current standard. Possibly for money, possibly for outrage. But perpetuating stereotypes proves that the individual does not fully understand the topic at hand. Terrorism is an ideology, not a body, not a book, not a message dictated over 1400 years ago. Terrorism, at the end of the day, is a political cause using religion as its medium. An inherently evil faith would not have been able to withstand 1400 years of existence, 1.79 billion adherents, and the title of largest religion in the world within 20 years. Inherent evil existed with Nazi Germany, for example, and it was brought down. Islam's message is clear to those who want to understand it.

No god but God and Muhammed is the Messenger of God. Those who choose to defile Muhammed with images is not something any of us can "fix," or "fight." What we can do is try to understand why such stereotypes continue to advance, and try to educate people about our faith and about the monotheism we preach. But this website isn't so bad, because it considers all of the depictions of Muhammed throughout time. It wasn't clear that this site was inherently biased one way or another, just trying to prove a point that depictions of the Prophet have existed throughout history.

That's it for me. Peace.

Thank you for showing these pictures. As a Born Again Christian in today's society, it's great to learn about other faiths and see how the different people over the centuries saw islam and the muslim prophet Mohammed.

What I have noticed from reading the 'offended' list, is that these people are very aggressive, rude, spiteful and very hurtful in making such judgemental comments about non-muslims. Its understandable to be offended, but these people are going over the top, most of these pictures were done by muslims themselves!



I came across your website shortly after all of the uproar started. I want to thank you for providing a place where I could see exactly what all of the brou-ha-ha was about.

I also found the pictures of Mohammed which had a historical context informative. Some of them painted in earlier times had beautiful detail of architecture and style.

Thank you for providing the information I wanted in order to make my own determination about the cartoons. I'm a moderator on a board which mainly focuses on [...]. One of our members is a Muslim in the UAE and in her post about this topic she made the statement about how Mohammed was not to be depicted in any manner other than the written word. I was able to use your older pictures to show her the paintings done in the 1400's.

Excellent site. It's obvious that the rioters are just using this as an excuse to spew their vitriol. More, they show that they themselves are guilty of idolatry, as they would not be reacting in this fashion if they didn't idolize Mohammed. Reminds me a bit of Christians who spout the 10 commandments before kneeling in front of a cross with a plaster jesus attached or a statue of the virgin mary and praying to it....sheer hypocrasy.

I thank you for this archive.

The negative reaction from muslim belivers only confirm the true face of Islam.

The is no peace in Islam, the true signature on Muhammeed should be Muhammed (DFWD)
DFWD = Death Fear War Destruction.

To all muslim's, The mighty hand of Allah hasn't struck down the unbelivers.
You should be worried.

Maybe Allah dosn't exist!!!



From: Don

While I don't find these cartoons an education in themselves, I do find the reactions to them very much so. Those who have issue with them don't care to notice that the cartoons are NOT making fun of, or belittling, Muhammad himself. They are simply depicting (sometimes exaggerated) the behaviors of those professing to honor him.

It appears to me, from what I've read in these responses, the majority of those that claim to honor he and his teachings of love and peace, are so quick to wish harm and death upon those that truly do want peace and love.
