Hypocrisy: February 2006 Archives

February 10, 2006

Make your bets, folks.

Egypt: Pagan Prattle Sweep time! How long will it be before Islamist loons start burning Egyptian flags and embassies, and demanding a boycott of Egyptian produce? You see, Egyptian blogger Sandmonkey felt the cartoons of Mohammed looked very familiar, and has found something very, very interesting.

...they were actually printed in the Egyptian Newspaper Al Fagr back in October 2005. I repeat, October 2005, during Ramadan, for all the egyptian muslim population to see, and not a single squeak of outrage was present. Al Fagr isn't a small newspaper either: it has respectable circulation in Egypt, since it's helmed by known Journalist Adel Hamoudah.

And to prove it, he's scanned the relevant pages.

I've already placed my bet on 'never'.

Mohammed through the ages

[An Islamic depiction of Mohammed]The Mohammed Image Archive at Zombietime, is a response to the Islamist loons who have reacted violently to a Danish newspaper publishing cartoons (several of which take the piss out of the paper itself) depicting Mohammed. They claim it's blasphemous, which is why the first block of images are of depictions of Mohammed in the Islamic world. The site also reprints the cartoons, along with other satirical Western cartoons depicting Mohammed which caused absolutely no fuss whatosever.

In addition, Val reminded me of Jesus and Mo, a web comic which should annoy the Christian fundies too.
