I object to this. I appreciate that it is a protest in favour of free speech, and I agree with its motives. I would be hugely upset if the 200th South Park episode hadn't been broadcast. It made the point about censorship of Mohammed's image and stupid over-reaction to it very well. If you've not seen it, the general gist is that all the celebrities who've been ridiculed by South Park get together and demand to meet Mohammed because he's the only person invulnerable to satire. There's then huge hysteria amongst the regular cast that the world will end when Mohammed appears. The episode was broadcast, and Stone/Parker received a few death threats, but didn't really care, and that was the end of it. It was funny, it made a good point, and it didn't offend anyone unnecessarily. On the other hand, I view the 'draw Mohammed day' protest as childish. It'd be like wearing the Cradle of Filth 'Jesus is a c**t' t-shirt (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:BGCTCF15.jpg) as a protest against the Pope's AIDS denialism. It just provokes offense and alienates people without really making a sensible point. My other objection to it is the fear of mis-interpretation that Stewart Lee talks about for the first three minutes of this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jGAOCVwLrXo As far as I can make out, the Mohammed cartoons were mostly drawn by racist old people who don't have a valid point to make. In a lot of the cartoons, he's wearing a Sikh turban, which demonstrates the ignorance of the people involved. There are a lot of things in Islam that people should object to and protest against, but drawing unfunny cartoons to be provocative isn't a good way to go about it. The freedom to draw those cartoons should be defended, but through genuinely amusing/insightful things like the South Park episode above. There's enough mistrust of muslims in this country without idiots making it worse. What does everyone else think?
