Those Mohammed cartoons

Apparently, it is a capital crime to make fun of Islam. To question it or suggest that the Koran might be interpreted differently earns you years in prison. When some Danish artists challenged that “you can’t tease me” attitude, they invoked a murderous rage, fuelled by demagogues who added unrelated images and made-up statements to the mix. These are all of the original cartoons.

CONTENT WARNING: Do not worship these images.

Those are all the cartoons. Anything else, such as the picture of the man in an unrelated hog-calling contest in another country, were added by Muslims hoping to inflame their co-religionists.
