South Park is the least of Islam’s problems: The Mohammed Image Archive displays every Mohammed portrait ever created · zomblog

New, at Pajamas Media:

South Park is the least of Islam’s problems: The Mohammed Image Archive displays every Mohammed portrait ever created

The existence of the Mohammed Image Archive is old news to long-standing zombietime readers, but the recent South Park brouhaha reminded me that many people are still not aware of it, and continue to think Mohammed depictions are taboo or hard to find. This new essay is a reminder that Mohammed pictures are commonplace, at least on the Internet. And it’s also the first time I’ve ever blogged about the Mohammed Image Archive, because I first created it back in 2005, before zomblog was added to this site!

A sample, to whet your appetite:


In 1928, Liebig’s Extract of Meat Company (a German firm which had developed concentrated beef extract and bouillon cubes) issued a series of advertising trading cards to promote its canned beef extract products. The 1928 card set (one of hundreds of different designs issued by the company over the years, on various themes) illustrated six different pivotal points in Mohammed’s life. The most beautiful of the cards was the second one, seen here, which showed the Archangel Gabriel escorting Mohammed up to the presence of Allah in Paradise — the climax of his legendary “Night Journey.” (The full set of all six cards are visible on the Archive’s Miscellaneous Mohammed page.)

    Its website in the blogosphere
    Brings hope to some; to others, fear.
    Depictions of Muhammad’s face,
    Although haraam, still “grace” the place.

    The sons of Allah whine and seethe,
    But zombie still does live and breathe.
    It’s zombietime, for e’er shall dwell
    The timeless zombie infidel.

    Apparently, righteous Islamists sure do use the f-word a lot.

    Now that I think about it, doesn’t the Bible say something pretty specific about “graven images” being a no-no? I wonder if any of the righteous citizens of Italy told Raphael they were going to fuck his sister if he didn’t stop painting Jesus. Somehow, I doubt it.

    I try to be tolerant and understanding. I do. But every now and then I get a peek into the mind of Muslims, and I am revolted. I mean a raw unedited peek, not something that has been dolled up for me by the MSM.

    I scanned the Mohammed pictures in the archive, all the pages. Some are very nice, very respectful, very attractive. MOST are pro-Mohammed, if you bother to add them all up. And then I get to the email page.

    What.
    The.
    FUCK???????

    Instead of thanking zombietime for basically making a museum honoring their prophet, they threaten to kill, rape, destroy, etc.

    My only conclusion, and I hate to have to say this, but it has been confirmed over and over again, is that Islam is a form of mental illness. I won’t even grant Islam the legitimacy of a standard diagnostic term, such as psychosis, narcissistic personality disorder, malignant paranoia, although all would apply. It’s simply raw madness, a serious thought disorder. Or more accurately a noxious primitive tribal worldview that has been generalized.

    One of the emails in the right column (the Pleased category) says “This cartoon thing has left me with a very dim view of the muslim religion.” I have to agree. I no longer think of it as a religion, but institutionalized bullying imposed by millions of very bad and not sane men. In that way, it is no different from fascism. Worse than fascism, more likely, because it is fascism combined with dementia, and is therefore more unpredictable.

    Don’t fall into the same sort of psycho-babble trap as the Left. (Remember — Conservatism is the mental illness. Totally unbiased long hair Liberal academics said so, therefore, it must be.) Ideology isn’t mental illness. Mental illness is mental illness. All of the big time monotheistic religions have gone through a phase where they took “kill the infidel” literally. Islam just hasn’t gotten over itself enough to realize that that philosophy is unworkable. That’s a poorly formed world view and zealotry, not mental illness.

    “Liebig’s”! That company name doesn’t work very well in English.

    I’ve always enjoyed the MIA, there are some very beautiful, inspiring images in there. The 1928 trading card depicted here is actually quite pretty IMHO.

    (if I may add just one more comment here) Now that I’ve finished reading through most of the emails you’ve received re: the MIA, I think my favorite it the following from “Bekir U” of Germany:

    ey motherfucker, i’ll fuck your generation, if you do not delete this site.

    what do you think who you are?

    i’ll show this site to my lawyer, an he can say me, if it is legal or not

    I see that you’ve gotten threats against your “mother,” “sister,” and “wife” in the past…but your entire generation?!?! Wow, that must include at least millions of Muslims, not mention…you know…hundreds of millions of other people.

    Is it wrong of me to have respect for someone awesome enough to fuck an entire generation of people?

    Not at all. The dedication and effort involved in that much sexual assault requires a respectable work ethic.

    Eric the Red didn’t have any particular rep as a rapist, at least not in the Greenlander Sagas. You’re thinking Vikings in general?

    If you have red hair and are of western European ancestry, supposedly there’s a good chance that it came from Eric the Red.

    Huh. Considering that red hair was fairly common among the Celts and the Norse, I find that surprising.

    Whatever!

    I’m not suggesting all red hair in Europe came from Eric the Red and I don’t know how “true” it is, but it’s what a friend who was an Old English/Old Norse scholar told me.

    Backlash! (subtitle: “Oh, FFS”)

    Someone remind — how many acts of outright racism and/or violence were commited against Arab-Americans after 9/11? Less than a dozen? Less than half a dozen?

    Chris Matthews et al should probably take a look at Zombie’s Mohammed Image e-mail archive.

    Starless, I’m confused about your comment above. Zombie receiving threatening emails is bad, yes, but so is racist violence against innocent people. It doesn’t matter who receives more of it, one racist incident or one threatening email is still one too many IMHO. One doesn’t excuse the other.

    I’m not excusing any sort of racism or violence, but at a time in American history when racism and violence against Arab-Americans would have been most expected, there was very, very little. Compare 9/12/01 and following to WWII and the treatment of German- and Japanese-Americans. Instead of pointing out these sorts of facts, people like Chris Matthews will first raise scary alarms about white militia-types and then when they are proven wrong, instead of admitting they jumped to the wrong conclusion, they’ll throw out the specter of potential violence, threats, and racism. This at a time when the American population has shown that it is less likely than ever to live up to that particular unsavory potential.

    The legacy liberal media has created this biased narrative — presumed potential violence, threats, and racism from one segment of the political spectrum (the segment they don’t sympathize with) is a bigger problem than actual violence, threats and racism from another (the segment they do sympathize with). They’ve got these prejudices and expectations and when people don’t conform to those prejudices and expectations, they do their best to create a fantasy world and persuade everyone to buy into it.
