Facebook pulls “Everybody Draw Mohammed” page?

posted at 10:21 pm on May 20, 2010 by Allahpundit

Via Ed Driscoll, here’s the cached page and here’s the live URL. What’s different?

It’s possible, I suppose, that the guy who created the page simply took it down himself, but why he’d do that before the day is over and without any sort of farewell post escapes me. We got a bunch of e-mails this morning claiming that the page had been removed briefly and put back online shortly thereafter, so maybe this is FB’s version of a compromise: Leave it up for most of the day, then censor it a few hours early as a sop to the nuts who are freaking out in Pakistan. If so, it’s a neat illustration of Matt Welch’s point that the more urgent threat to free speech comes not from bomb-toting jihadis but from western media that’s overly eager to avoid giving offense. And indeed, according to NBC, reaction to EDMD has been low key in most Muslim enclaves. Most — but not all:

Khalid al-Maeena, editor-in-chief of the Arab News, worries that reactions could escalate.

“It is a series of provocations to incite people and could get idiots to issue statements calling for violence,” he said. “It is a determined effort to create a wedge between Muslims and other people. I hope they will rise to the occasion and be sane in dealing with it.”

If violence erupts, Maeena says he will lay blame at the feet of the cartoonist who introduced the Facebook idea in the first place.

“Sensibilities are being attacked for no reason but to create mischief. If anyone dies on one side or the other, [they] should be charged with murder,” said Maenna. “I am a secular person, I am a liberal, but enough is enough!”

Newsflash: If you’re willing to blame a cartoonist for the body count incurred in a fit of rage over his/her drawings, you’re neither a secularist nor a liberal. But good news: Molly Norris, the artist who kicked this whole idea off, is in full walkback mode, declaring, “I apologize to people of Muslim faith and ask that this ‘day’ be called off.” So, hopefully they’ll let her off the hook. For now.

Update: Do note: The Facebook page opposed to Everybody Draw Mohammed Day is still online.

jimmy2shoes on May 20, 2010 at 10:28 PM

What a strange world where a cartoon can reach off of the page and force someone’s trigger finger down against their will. With such great power, I don’t think the cartoonist could NOT draw them. I mean, even before the cartoons are fully formed they exert their independent will and mysterious power to force the catoonist fingers against their will.

My status is still up, and will be until tomorrow:

Today is “Everybody Draw Muhammad Day”. Why? Because the ‘religion of peace’ has proven to be everything but. When a Catholic church is built in Mecca, or any Christian church, maybe I’ll be a bit more understanding. Until then, until they are tolerant, I will ‘go there’, often and unapologetically.

I’m not going to let anyone shove down my throat the notion that drawing Mohammed is blasphemous — nor the concept of blasphemy, period. Sure, if it’s a vulgar, prurient picture in its own right — fine, that’s universal poor taste. But the Islamofascists are inflamed by tame pictures, too — and I am not going to be intimidated by that B.S. mentality one bit.

As someone said above — “Mohammed sucks.” Now, come and find me, you fascist a-holes.

There are good muslims doing what they are instructed by their religion to do.

You need to get into the Koran, you need to understand their precepts, you need to read the Sura, you need to read the hadiths, and then you can really understand that it’s not a perversion [or a bunch of "nuts"], they are doing exactly what this book says.

I’ve been saying this “draw Mohammed” thing was juvenile and unproductive. But nay, I was wrong a bit it seems. Not only was not productive – it seems now it was completely counterproductive because it only highlighted how perfectly impotent we in the west are to anything about the radical Mohammedans.

You are a nincompoop and a schlamiel and, if you really believe half the things your say, you are depraved.

Nothing gets the Hot Air Neo-Cons in a lather like the cancellation of a bombing run on innocent Arab civilians! Drawing Mohammed Day comes in a distant second.

I’m wondering if the Neo-Cons here would be so supportive of “artistic expression” if Hot Air sponsored a “Draw A Kike” Day?

Don’t answer that. It’s rhetorical.

They have, fool. It’s called “everybody draw the holocaust” and it has NOT been removed and nobody is making death threats

I suppose “Draw a Jew” day (I don’t deign to repeat racial slurs) would fall under artistic expression.

After all, it’s just a picture of a Jew, not a Jew in and of itself.

You don’t even know what the word clarity means, Hot Aryan who probably believes talking snakes, big fish dwellers, and old men building arks to save the human and animal species.

Dude, it’s Facebook.

Europe is basically already in submission to the Muzzies. We’re the last stand, and so far, we’re getting a big fat F Minus.

You are confused. “Neo-Cons” believe in Islamic Nation Building.

i think its mostly teenagers and perverts and these stories just support my original thoughts about it.

You’d be wrong. Facebook is used heavily by activists, many of whom are here on Hot Air.

Not rhetorical, just stupid.

As a Jew, such a day wouldn’t bother me at all, and neither does your ethnic slur. Happen to know where the word “kike” comes from, Davey?

Choot!

Fine, we can’t draw Mohammed. How’s about we “Channel Christ?” (Or God, or St. Buffy or the prophet Erkel…I don’t care….whomever you worship).

Instead of “drawing Mohammed,” How about we state, unequivaquibly what our own personal diety means to us?
I’ll respect yours if you can respect mine.

Here goes:
I accept Jesus Christ as my personal savior. I believe he sacrificed his life so that I may have eternal life. I try (and fail)each and every day to live up to this honor.
I pray for my country multiple times a day. I pray for my president multiple times a day. Though I disagree with him on almost every single issue, the last thing I want is for harm to come to him, he is my president, but more importantly, from my religious perspective, he’s a human being. Life is sacred. So, even though he has little or no regard for unborn life, I have every regard for his life.
I also believe we need to accept responsibility and gain control–through traditional channels (the ballot box, and our inalienable right to free speech)–of our country.
If we are the majority, we can make it happen as long as we keep God in our hearts. If we’re wrong, well, then, there’s a much bigger power that’s fighting against us, and in that case, we be toast.
I prefer to believe the former, not the latter. I also believe that if this country wasn’t divinely ordained, it was a great, big, giant accident. It’s either one or the other. Can’t have it both ways…it’s one or the other.

I know which side I’m on…any other thoughts?

God bless the United States of America.

There are no such things.
