"The Koran Does Not Forbid Images of the Prophet"



The Charlie Hebdo killers were operating under a misapprehension. Topkapı Palace Library 

"In the wake of the massacre that took place in the Paris offices of Charlie Hebdo, I have been called upon as a scholar specializing in Islamic paintings of the Prophet to explain whether images of Muhammad are banned in Islam.

"The short and simple answer is no. The Koran does not prohibit figural imagery. Rather, it castigates the worship of idols, which are understood as concrete embodiments of the polytheistic beliefs that Islam supplanted when it emerged as a purely monotheistic faith in the Arabian Peninsula during the seventh century."

The idiots don't even know their own religion.  Thousands die because of their ignorance..

Muslims by the millions migrate out of their holylands because of their religion. and bring their problems with them wherever they go. France is full of muslim ghettos because they fail to assimilate into the host culture., the same goes for the rest of the world. You can write books about this stuff and things still will not change because the public is STUPID. And we all know you can't fix STUPID
