Since I found out that ScienceBlogs has a very cool feature built in for uploading images, I thought I’d go ahead and post all of the caricatures of Mohammed that were published in the Danish newspaper. Keep in mind what prompted the newspaper to publish them. A scholar was writing a book on Mohammed and could not find an illustrator who was willing to do the drawings for the book for fear of reprisal because Muslims believe that any drawing of Mohammed is forbidden. So the newspaper invited a bunch of artists to submit illustrations on the subject to test the extent of self-censorship going on regarding Islam. You will notice, in fact, that some of the illustrations make fun not of Mohammed but of the newspaper itself. Here’s my favorite. The rest are below the fold.
