Once Local Publications Now Global

From the Mohammed Image Archive:

While the debate rages, an important point has been overlooked: despite the Islamic prohibition against depicting Mohammed under any circumstances, hundreds of paintings, drawings and other images of Mohammed have been created over the centuries, with nary a word of complaint from the Muslim world. The recent cartoons in Jyllands-Posten are nothing new; it’s just that no other images of Mohammed have ever been so widely publicized.

With this site, which is being widely linked to on the Web, that is changing. Fast.

    It’s not ignorance that causes Muslims to demand for punishment for our liberties. There’s a philosophical difference of opinion.

    Meanwhile, Wikipedia evolves, as ever.
