The Islamic world does not believe in putting their prophet of Allah in any form except spiritual and in words. No illustration statues etc. This would lead to idol worship. But since the Muslim religion is so private, a danish journalist, decided to hire 12 artists to depict Muhammed in cartoon form. This was extremely controversial. An out break of threats came about, and the artists were in danger.
I think this is completely wrong. Why cant people depict Muhammed? They Depict Jesus all the time. I think that Muslims over reacted to this situation and needed to just get over it. If you cant handle ridicule but can ridicule others' religion that is not right .
