What would Muhammad do? WMD

Last year the Danish writer Kaare Bluitgen was putting the last touches on a book about the prophet Muhammad aimed at children. In spite of the prohibition on portraying the prophet in Islam, Bluitgen decided that he would like his book to be illustrated. In the wake of the murder on Theo van Gogh, and an attack on a professor in history at the University of Copenhagen, Bluitgen felt that it was wisest to keep the illustrators anonymous because of fear of reprisals from crazy fundamentalists.

The Danish newspaper "Jyllandsposten" picked up the story about Bluitgens choice to keep the names of the illustrators secret, and to demonstrate that Denmark has freedom of speech, the newspaper commissions cartoonists to make a series of satirical drawings of the prophet Muhammad. 12 of the numerous cartoons appeared in print September 30 2005. They were not immediately met with outrage from Muslims in Denmark, the outrage by the muslim population only started after several radical clerics from Europe traveled around the Middle East distributing the cartoons, and giving fiery speeches.

This is crazy how muslims are protesting these cartoons when Jews are shown in islamic newspaper cartoons over and over with hook noses, jew gold around their necks with the star of David, and greedily stashing money. And what about all the caricatures depicting Christ and god, you do not see Christians taking to the streets and shooting rifles into the air like they have smoked to much dope in thier parlors. I think muslims need to take a serious look at themselves, and realize what they are turning into.

I never knew about these cartoons of Christ and David.
Anyways why the copies of cartoons were distributed in the Middle East?
It is obviously a tension-rising action.
