How many of you have actually seen them?

If more than 1% of the Muslim population has actually seen these cartoons I would be amazed.

Some might argue that this is irrelevant as the idea of a depiction of Mohammad, in and of itself, is prohibited. Not so. Nobody thus far has been able to identify where this is prohibited in the Qu'ran. MANY depictions of Mohammad have been made over the centuries by both Muslim and non-Muslim sources. Don't believe me?


And you can even see the pictures that caused such outrage...
