Mohammed and Jesus by Phostex Mohammed and Jesus by Phostex
According to the highest authority (Wikipedia), there are very few people, even Muslims who should find this offensive. Muhammed, the Muslim prophet, is sharing a cookie with Jesus, the Christian Savior.

Sunnis are the largest group of Muslims to be concerned with portrayals of the prophet Muhammed, mainly because they fear that it would cause idolatry, the worship of an image over the idea behind it. That is completely rational, and I respect that. But it is not a written in Qu'ran, and bans against it are only ever found in supplemental texts, and resemble the Jewish traditional ban on "graven images".

Persian and Ottoman Muslims over the centuries have created many beautiful works of art depicting Muhammed in a historical light. The Supreme Court Building in Washington DC depicts Muhammed along with Hammurabi and Moses as a Judge and Rule-maker. Devotional and historical films have been made about Muhammed. And in my opinion, yeah, the Dutch cartoons of Muhammed were kind of insensitive, and in my opinion, kind of not funny either. Maybe that's what passes for humor in the Netherlands.

So to anyone who threatens me with violence over a heavily stylized depiction of Muhammed with a cookie: Fuck you.

I don't know where you got the second one, especially since that sentence contradicts itself...

But okay, I'll take it.

This is wrong, focusing on the religious messages telling us to be nice to other people and respect each other. We shouldn't concern ourselves with trivial matter like that. What truly matters is whether or not you follow my beliefs and if not then I have to criticize you for it.

On a more serious note, this is adorabu and I love it. Friendship between two holy figures is just a great idea in general.

Muhammad was actually a bit of a war lord. He wasn't exactly much of a preacher of peace, well, at least part of his life.
Reply

As much of a warlord as Napoleon or Teddy Roosevelt or Emperor Chin.

All of whom were sort of expansionist assholes.

I don't know if he was as violent as those guys, but he was certainly more violent than Jesus (in Teddy's defense, he was just the general. He didn't cause the Spanish-American war)

Still, you make a valid point. Religious groups should learn to get along with each other despite having different views (I'd argue the same thing with political groups myself)

Jesus was more like an MLK or a Ghandi: he didn't kill anyone and he didn't conquer anything, but when it comes to upsetting the balance of power and making some social revolution, he completely knew what he was doing.
I agree, but I'm not holding my breath.

I am a Muslim and I am not offended with this. Some people get to damn butthurt over the drawing of the Prophet. While the Quran does say the Prophet's aren't supposed to be drawn, you never see Muslims getting mad over the portrayal of Jesus.
