Roofus: your cartoon sucks...
Trying to portray the poor Muslims as "victims" of a
hateful mob.
Why don't you invite the mosque to build on your
block where you live?

I appreciate the critique, Rob, but I'm quite sure I'd have no more problem with that than I would have inviting a Christian church, Jewish temple or any other place of worship. If you'd like to read further about my position I invite you to read the entry for this cartoon on my own website:

Muslims have always claimed victim status right from the days Mo/allah. ... Anyway there is nothing new here..Not one Muslim group has come up against and declared that a collective boycott of an entire nation such as Denmark in 2006 is wrong..The world has 1.2 billions Muslims. They must take sides. They must take to the streets shouting not in our name. They must take action to spit out the villians, SAY NO TO TERRORIST.Muslims in this country are not widely discriminated against,Muslims are not being lynched, or persecuted, or discriminated against in the USA. SO STAND UP AND BLESS AMERICA THE LAND OF THE FREE. SAY IT OUT LOUD I LOVE THE USA

I like that your cartoon depicts the radical islamist as married to a Christian nun. Those loonies belong together.
It's about time someone raised the issue of traffic congestion. We've all been too concerned with their hatred of freedom to think about their poor driving skills and inability to parallel park.
Nuns and men in white dresses - it's all very madonaa if you ask me - but I hate when they are like a virgin. It's time to dance, for inspiration - just get into our groove or papa's gonna preach.
But remeber Music makes the different people come together - it makes the muslims go buy records.
