Dedicated to Molly Norris, creator of Everybody Draw Mohammed Day, who had to go into hiding and change her identity because of the death threats she got.

Fanatic: "If you mock my beliefs, I will kill you!"

Moderate: "If you mock my beliefs, he will kill you."


  1. That's incredibly misleading. The people who told that pastor in Florida he was endangering troops were members of the government who have to worry about inflaming prejudice in the Middle East and Afghanistan.

    I'd like to see some evidence of moderate Muslims in this country saying this.

  2. In retrospect, I should have included evidence to support my point that this comic is unfair because of all the shit muslims are already dealing with in America. And I should have elaborated on my point:

    Moderate Muslims are already being treated like they're all latent terrorists or, at best, supporters of terrorism abroad. Of course, the primary targets and victims of Muslim extremism are other Muslims.

    When Robert Gates says, "Hey, that's perfect propaganda material for our enemies to show poor people in the desert to get them to take up arms against our soldiers, maybe don't do it?" That's not the same as the Park51 Imam saying, "If you do that, fanatics in this country are going to target Americans!"

    But go on! I mean, Muslims are such a hard target, right? Everyone loves them! We need to show people that they can't be trusted!

    It's one thing to poke fun at the tenets of their faith (I'm an Atheist, too), but this comic is a good example of exactly what most Americans think about non-terrorist Muslims. I'm sick and tired of going to family get togethers and having to listen to how bad and evil Muslims are, and how we should make it harder for them to live in this country. Like they aren't even people.

    Lest anyone think I just stumbled on this comic, I come here at least three times a week. It's in my webcomic roll, right between Dresden Codak and Gunnerkrigg Court. I've commented here, before. Also, I made this.

    So if I'm trolling, it's because I love your comic. Otherwise, I wouldn't give a shit.
