It is necessary to mock Mohammad, the prophet of Islam, because

  1. Islam is at war with the civilized world
  2. Mocking the prophet demoralizes the jihadists as it reveals pockets of resistance boldly defying the dictates of Islam.

It can be argued that mocking the Prophet will increase some jihadists numbers. This may be possible. However the Islamic middle--and the non-"libertine" fraction of the West--can see the Islamic psychological madness that demands that non-Muslims revere Mohammad.

Thus mocking the prophet can increase the internal tensions within Islam and remove moral support for the enraged jihadists.
