95,000 descendants of Mohammed looking for big bucks, sue over cartoons

mohammed cartoons

If you can’t blow ‘em up, sue ‘em. That seems to be the philosophy of 95,000 direct descendants of Mohammed.

News.com.au has the details of the sordid suit:

NEARLY 95,000 descendants of Mohammed are going to sue 10 newspapers for publishing “blasphemous” cartoons of the prophet.

Faisal Yamani, a Saudi lawyer acting for the descendants, claims that the cartoons – which first appeared in 2005 and caused violent protests by Muslims around the world – are defamatory.

One of the 12 cartoons depicts Mohammed wearing a bomb-shaped turban.

The Sunday Times said that although the cartoons were published by Danish newspapers, Mr Yamani plans to pursue legal action in England, where libel laws are weighted towards the plaintiff.

English lawyers expect that he will argue that the cartoons were published in Britain via the internet and are a direct slur on his clients, who live in the Middle East, north Africa and even Australia.

Mark Stephens, a British lawyer who saw Mr Yamani’s missive to the newspapers, told The Sunday Times: “Direct descendants of the prophet have a particular place within Muslim society … By effectively criticising and making fun of the prophet you are, by implication, holding them up to scandal, contempt and public ridicule.

Just a little unsolicited advice from the legal wizards at IHateTheMedia.com: If the dynamite vest fits, you must acquit.

Lame.. They know the jig is up if they slack on enforcement. I work with muslims who drink because that have nothing to fear in terms of reprisals (some just don’t want their wives to know). Islam would lose half its flock if they put down their swords for a generation.

Blowing up the Buddhas in Afghanistan was a good example of Islamic respect of other religions.

I pity you, because there are still people who believe what you feel through the screen of news lies
And believe what you hear without thinking, but we Muslims do not like you do not insult one of your symbol does not make fun of them religious, because each one has a belief in your

But remember one thing: that the style cynicism and insulting others is always the style of weakness, not strength
Also, remember the important thing: that my words that bear right and wrong and you think you are right ..

Until muslims can get their house in order with regards to respecting other cultures and religions, people such as you have no business telling anyone about anything you may view as a “high road”.

Maybe we need Biden to inform them that it’s no “big effin’ deal”.
Or how about just a plain old fashioned “Eff off!!!”?
I’m proud to be an infidel.

You know… if I actually had the time to sue every atheist organization and every anti christian organization or any newspaper or periodical, internet sites, whatever that makes fun or shows blasphemous pictures of Christ (which are many like David LaChapelle ewwwww), I will not be able to work and live my life. Jesus doesn’t need my help to defend His honor, not in this way anyway. These people are ridiculous and they need to calm down.

I believe these idiots are holding themselves up to scandal, contempt and public ridicule. Face it folks, this dude assumed room temperature some 1500 years ago. So eat, drink, and make merry the imaginary image of good ‘ole Mo!

Hmmm… You only published a small portion of the cartoons. Does that mean you can only be sued for 3 goats or just 1 chicken?
