Remember How The moslems Reacted Over A Cartoon Drawing Of That Baby-Rapist mohammed?
More moslem hypocrisy

Here's some of the article from the Sydney Morning Herald;

That's Osama art controversy

The head of Australia's Islamic Council believes a statue of the Virgin Mary shrouded in a burqa is not offensive, because it shows a key female figure of Islam in the modest fashion required of all Muslim women.

Prime Minister John Howard yesterday described as "gratuitously offensive" the statue and another artwork depicting a holographic image of Osama bin Laden that morphed into an image of Jesus Christ. The artworks were entries into the Blake Prize for religious art.

But Australian Federation of Islamic Councils president Ikebal Patel said the statue was "not at all offensive", because both the Virgin Mary and Jesus were revered figures in Islam.

The Archbishop of Sydney, Cardinal George Pell, said: "As a person of faith and religious background I think it's important to reflect on the icons of our faiths. Unfortunately, some contemporary art is tedious and trivial. These couple of works demonstrate this."

"Regrettably, attempts to insult Jesus and Mary have become common in recent years, even predictable. Too often it seems that the only quality which makes something art is the adolescent desire to shock. If this is the best the Blake Prize can do, it has probably outlived its usefulness."

People get away with this because, unlike the Muslims, the Vatican does not issue fatwas.

A veil, yes. A burka, NO. And wtf is the matter with that artist, depicting bin Ladin as Jesus?!??!

I know Jesus and the Blessed Virgin are revered in Islam. But is that Muslim leader actually admitting that bin Ladin is too?! There's some unprecedented honesty!

Man, if there is one thing I REALLY hate, it is the Bambi-eyed visage of Osama bin Laden. Shallow and frivolous people, I am sure, probably think it makes him look thougtful and sensitive. To me, it is the cold, cruel expression of a hate-filled murderer, the kind of man who would say "Ahala Akbar" as he coldly slices your head off.

And our Lady in a burka? Utterly blasphemous. As I said above, people get away with this only because the Vatican does not issue fatwas.

It's interesting that the media didn't use the angle of the Ausie artist portraying the muslim bin Laden as a Christian. Besides the certain insult of showing an allegedly staunch muslim as a Christian, there is also the no-pictures-of-a-prophet rule in islam.

Present this news item just a little differently in the media, and all of a sudden you would have the hajis rioting.

Please don't allow yourself to believe that muslims "respect" OUR SAVIOUR. He IS One with THE FATHER and THE HOLY SPIRIT.

muslims only regard Jesus as "a prophet". They claim that their mohammed was the last prophet while Jesus warned that NO OTHER prophets would come after HIM. Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the LIFE.

islam is a cult of Death and its false prophet would have you believe that evil is good.

It seems to be that a can of spraypaint and a baseball bat are in order here.
