    • 7. How the U.S. general public views Muslims and Islam July 26, 2017
      In general, Americans continue to express mixed views of both Muslims and Islam. But on some measures, opinions about Muslims and Islam have become more positive in recent years. More Americans express “warmer” feelings toward Muslims on a thermometer scale than they have in the past, while there has been a decline in the share […]

    • 6. Religious beliefs and practices July 26, 2017
      While Americans overall have become somewhat less religious in recent years, measures of various beliefs and practices have been relatively stable among those who identify with a religion (e.g., Protestants, Catholics). The current survey shows a similar pattern among U.S. Muslims. About four-in-ten Muslims say they attend religious services at least weekly, […]

    • 5. Terrorism and concerns about extremism July 26, 2017
      Since 2011, U.S. Muslims have become more concerned about extremism in the name of Islam around the world. At the same time, most believe there is little support for extremism within their own community, even as the general public disagrees. Indeed, Muslims are conflicted about the arrests of Muslims in the U.S. who are suspected […]

    • 4. Political and social views July 26, 2017
      The political profile of Muslim Americans is much the same today as it was when Pew Research Center first comprehensively surveyed this population a decade ago: Muslims constitute a strongly Democratic constituency. Three-quarters of Muslim voters say they cast a ballot for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election, and two-thirds of U.S. Muslims ove […]

    • 3. The Muslim American experience in the Trump era July 26, 2017
      U.S. Muslims clearly express concerns and worries about the future of the country and their place in American society in the wake of Donald Trump’s election as president. Most Muslims are dissatisfied with the direction the country is going, which is a reversal of opinion from 2011. Majorities of U.S. Muslims view the Republican Party […]

    • 2. Identity, assimilation and community July 26, 2017
      Muslim Americans overwhelmingly embrace both the “Muslim” and “American” parts of their identity. For instance, the vast majority of U.S. Muslims say they are proud to be American (92%), while nearly all say they are proud to be Muslim (97%). Indeed, about nine-in-ten (89%) say they are proud to be both Muslim and American. Muslim […]

Danish Cartoon Of Mohammad Reprinted…

After police revealed a plot to kill the creator of the caricature that sparked deadly riots in the Muslim world. some Danish newspapers reprinted the cartoon. So in solidarity with them I will post one here.

Oh and if anyone decides to post a threatening message I will post them here for all the world to see because unlike them I don’t believe in censorship and I do  believe in Free Speech.  Peace to you all.

  1. The simple faith is the most dangerous thing in this world.

  2. I feel saddened by this post. I believe in freedom of speech as well but that isn’t a green card to insult someone else’s faith. There is such a thing as respect in the world.

    With that said, I find the response of certain members of the Muslim world disappointing to say the least. It was an immature response and unjustified. People around the world have got to calm down and relax, regardless of faith.

    Still, I have many atheist friends, many of them are very close to me. We speak about our differences in opinion all the time in a calm and respectful manner. These caricatures are hateful, immature, and unjustified as well and your solidarity with the newspapers that printed them marks you as such as well.

  3. What i feel sad about is the fact that non Muslims who printed this cartoon got their lives threatned by people with hurt feelings. You should be secure in your “faith” as to not let this kind of cartoon affect you. And what i consider hateful is the violence that all relgions use against each other and people of different or no faith. So, quite frankly, I don’t give a damm about what names you call me., in my book that makes YOU the immature one.

  4. What makes me immature? I fail to understand your point.

  5. If you know our dearest prophet quite well , you will feel ashamed for these cartoons.

  6. omg.. good work, dude

  7. Why to make fun of other people believes what if i grab photo of you or your mother or one you like and keep make fun of it and post it every where. would you like it ?

  8. thanks I am a muslim and this image does not have any impact on me

  9. This extremists are ridiculous. What kind of religion promotes going out and killing people that do not agree with you?!!! Last I checked none do. these extremists have the wrong ideas. As far as the cartoon goes i too believe in free speech; however, this cartoon just antagonizes those that are out to kill. Also it gives the wrong idea of the real Islam.

    PEACE AND LOVE THATS WHAT ITS ALL ABOUT PEOPLE.

  10. yeah this comic basically means that islam is a bomb thats going to explode. with no respect to the followers of islam this is true. you guys are a death cult and dont belong in this world. how many times do we have to kick the shit out of you before you stop breeding like cockroaches in the sandbox? as soon as you guys run out of oil , no country will be interested in you because thats all you guys retain. hey i mean why not, its just a rotting shithole in the middle of no where. lets see how far you guys get, if you dont blow eachother up befor eyou run out of it. islam is a total joke. when you guys are ready to stop acting like 2 year olds and grow up, please feel free to convert to christianity. oh i almost forgot, muhammad is a goat fucking pervert. see you all later 🙂

  11. This isn’t a simple attack on Islam, it’s an attack of Islamic Extremism, which I think is a more apparent concept than Islam itself. I think it’s rightly so to attack Islamic Extremism, because it needs to be banged on the head before it causes anymore damage than it already has.
    If people are so unsecured by “faith” than doesn’t that defeat the object of faith? I also believed faith was to do with absolute belief, and that no physical integer could affect it. – Looking at the way Muslims act in such ways, I’m beginning to disagree.
    I know and appreciate that there are a few (And I mean a few) Muslims that don’t have similar beliefs, or act in the same way.. But just look at Muslim Capitals (such as Iraq, Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia), where Women and Freedom of Speech are incarcirated and oppressed. I read an article about woman who was inprisoned because she went to a rivalling family to ask for forgivenness due to her brothers affections for one of their daughters, where she was then denied and gang-raped by 6 men; the conviction was sex before marriage.. I think this type of Mentality is reflected in the response to these cartoons.

  12. Anonymous – I’m not sure how well you know our dearest prophet. You realise that after his expulsion from Mecca our dearest prophet spent eight years fighting the Meccan tribes before eventually conquering Mecca. And of course many of the revelations our prophet had over this time were quite clearly focused on uniting the tribes of Medina against the Meccans. Our dearest prophet was obviously a fighting man and I suspect would be quite pleased to depicted as he is in these cartoons (except in the 620s he wouldn’t have understood what a bomb was).
    And Osama – there should be no reason why the beliefs of any faith, or the acts they inspire, should not be questioned. There is currently a clear link between Islam and a number of terrorist acts. If this is an affront to Islam then it is the perpetrators, who openly say they are acting in the name of Islam, who are insulting your faith.

  14. i will say only that,,what ever he makes a picture or cartoon or any image of our holy prophet in what ever intentions,will get the reward on the day of judgment,,we his believers may be quite or may be weak will not retaliate as what it needs to,,but he is a most loving and pious prophet of god ,,so wait for the day of judgment and inshallah u will get ur reward from the great great allah,,
