The above picture is my all-time favorite Draw Muhammed Day entry. It shows something that most Islamophobes would never consider: a smiley, down-to-Earth, friendly image of the Arabian prophet.
Many people use DMD as a chance to depict Muhammad as a blood-drenched terrorist. I like that this image not only challenges the Islamo-fascist attempts to extend to us infidels their prohibition against depicting their prophet, but also challenges the vilification of Muslims by some militant atheists. Not all Muslims take their religion that seriously: many Muslims are down-to-Earth, genuinely whomesome, good people.
Smiling Muhammad saying “Peace to You” (Salamo Alaykum) is a stereotype-shattering image, plus the Masters of my own Epicurean tradition teach that religious figures must always be depicted smiling and reflecting ataraxia and the other virtues of philosophy. On this 20th of May, I wish you all Peace and Imperturbability.
