Cartoons of Muhammad from 100 years ago

What an interesting article!

It tells the story of a satirical magazine published in Tbilisi a century ago, using satirical cartoons to promote women’s equality, individual rights and secularism…


How Muslim Azerbaijan had satire years before Charlie Hebdo

An Azeri woman points to a building with windows, which is a prison, while on their right is a house of Muslim women with none. Picture: Courtesy of the Azerbaijan National Library. In this cartoon, the magazine depicts a prison with windows and a house of Muslim women with none
This cartoon from 1909 had a pretty short explanation: “Pilgrimage to Hajj”. This 1909 cartoon, Pilgrimage to Hajj, had a pretty clear message
He also depicted Muhammad.
Very interesting read indeed…

PEGIDA-like demonstration against Islam in Brno, Czech Republic

Translation is below the video:

According to estimates, several hundred people gathered at the Moravian Square in Brno for a demonstration against Islam.

Nearby, representatives of tolerance and religious freedom had their own gathering.  Only about 200 of them showed up.

The action was commenced by an ecumenical religious service. The police did not have to solve any problems in the first few ‘ten-minutes’.  (Aside ‘ten-minute’ is a frequently used time unit in Czech)

Participants move freely between both gatherings.

Some argue about what is a greater threat to the society:  Islam or intolerance.

“No, you will not get to speak, you don’t have the right to stand up here.  Certainly no, you will not get it. You have no place here:  this is our event.”

Today’s date, the holiday of St. Valentine, was intentionally selected by the organizers.  They insist that celebrating the holiday of love is forbidden in Islam.

According to public information, there are several hundred Muslims in Brno.  Since the year 1998, the first functioning  Mosque in Czech has operated here.

At least one person is dead at a Freedom of Speech event:

OK – at this point, we don’t know the identity of the murderers, but, does anyone seriously think this is anything other than jihad?
