You couldn't write a movie script like this. Not that it would be overly difficult or fantastical. You'd just get your life turned upside down and possibly, your head chopped off by everyone's least-favorite terrorist organization (and I don't mean Cobra).
Seatlle-based cartoonist Molly Norris, who created this cartoon, as part of "Everybody Draw Mohammad Day", is now in hiding and fearing for her life as a "prime target" of Al Queda (shown below). Naturally, the cartoon was meant as a lighthearted way to call attention to censorship out of fear of Islamist fruitcakes, inspired by a "Mohammad in a bear costume" South Park cartoon on the same theme (also resulting in death threats), in turn inspired by the Danish cartoons controversy.
Only in a sick, twisted mind would this cartoon be considered grounds for rebuke, much less targeted assassination. That the FBI feels there is a credible threat to Norris, living in the United States, speaks volumes about the nature of the beast that has been unleashed.
The target is not limited to this...More >>
