In the words of Vittorio Arrigoni  "STAY HUMAN"

In the words of Vittorio Arrigoni

YES to the question above!

A very simple lesson indeed … there is no reason to offend! I will elaborate …

Recently a very dear friend presented me with a beautiful porcelain statue of Buddha from his native Sri Lanka. It was very similar to the one in the image below. I placed it on a shelf in my living room. To my surprise it offended some of my close relatives as it is forbidden by Jewish Law to possess graven images of ‘other gods’. They asked me to get rid of it and without making a fuss I placed it elsewhere where I alone can enjoy its serenity and beauty.

If my relatives in question were extremists they might have destroyed the statue and/or caused me bodily harm for possessing it. Neither happened.

Simple and to the point!

The above raises another question; why is it permissible for a devout Jew to enter, or even pray in a mosque but not a church?

Islam, like it’s brother religion Judaism, forbids images for the simple reason that the Prophet Mohammed Himself was aware that if people saw his face portrayed by people, they would soon start worshiping Him. He spoke against such images, saying “I’m just a man.”

Therefore, there are no images or statues of the Prophet in mosques, unlike many churches which prominently display images of their various Saints or of Jesus Himself.

A more comprehensive discussion as to Why Islam forbids images of Mohammed can be read HERE.

The Cave of Machpelah in Palestine houses the tombs of our Father Abraham and His Family. It serves both as a mosque and a synagogue.

No one but the extremists themselves benefit from extremism. We saw that after 9/11 … 

We saw it from the 'Christian' extremists

We saw it from the ‘Christian’ extremists


We saw it from the zionist extremists

… and we see it today.

Whitewashing his own crimes for the world to see

So why does Charlie continue to feed extremism, both Islamic and zionist? Satire is funny …. hatred certainly is not. Charlie has in its pages poked ‘fun’ at everyone at one time or another. That’s fine UNLESS it’s an insult and a spit in the face of millions of people throughout the world. That’s what they do when they depict images of the Prophet Mohammed in compromising or rude situations. They know it will only hurt people yet they continue to do it and plan on continuing as can be seen HERE.

Charlie Hebdo’s Next Issue to Feature Cartoon of Mohammed

The cover this week’s Charlie Hebdo shows a cartoon of the Prophet Mohammed crying and holding up a “Je suis Charlie” sign.
Surely the editors at Charlie Hebdo know that within the Muslim and zionist communities there are extremists, not as tolerant as the relatives I wrote about above. Why continue to feed them the ammunition they seem to thrive on? Was there not a lesson from the horrors of a week ago?

    What does the “All is forgiven” cartoon mean? I haven’t heard one of their cartoons translated to be funny or even to make sense,

    I believe one of the answer to the question of why a publication such as Charlie would continue publishing crude and offensive cartoons of religious figures, is for the sake of gaining maximum notoriety for the sole purpose of obtaining self gratification. Which, in and of itself, is a form of mental illness that, in many ways is as harmful as pedophilia and several other crimes caused by mental deformities. .

    But Buddha is not worshipped as a god. That’s the whole point of Buddhism – that the Buddha was simply a man who did what every human eventually has to do – achieve enlightenment, and so stop being reborn, Some versions – e.g. Tibetan – have added minor gods. But Sri Lankan Buddhism, being the Theravada tradition, and so closest to Budha’s original teaching, is an atheist religion, with no gods at all.
    Of course, you could oppose the image as strict Moslems do, on the grounds that no humans should be represented – or because representation attracts worship, as you say in a later paragraph.

    We see images of Jesus as a man with blond hair and blue eyes but a man from the Holy Land two thousand years ago would have olive skin, with brown eyes and black hair and beard. He would have looked more like Saddam Hussain than George Bush and if he ever lived they’ve denied him his racial roots. Not very respectful to any prophet, that isn’t.

    Cnn: “… In some ways, Islam was a reaction against Christianity …”
      No !
    Monotheism began from Abraham. the Jews and the Muslims are descendants of Abraham.
    Abraham was broken the statues (“idol worship”) of his parents. and so began the belief in one God.

    Jesus was a Jew. so, In fact, all three religions are the same, the same source.

    The video “Innocence of Muslims” – that was disgusting and pathetic, I saw on YouTub. and I wrote them that they need to remove it, because it is a deliberate incitement against Muslims.
    At the end, we saw what happened, as a result of this incitement.
