ISLAM NEWS: List of Incidents that caused outrage in the Muslims world

Danish cartoons In 2006, cartoons published in the Danish daily Jyllands-Posten, and reprinted in the Norwegian paper Magazinet, depicted Mohammed in an unflattering light, including one that showed him wearing a bomb in his turban. The cartoons sparked outrage among Muslims and resulted in protests across the Middle East, as well as threats of retaliation against those involved in the drawings. Saudi Arabia recalled its ambassador from Denmark; Libya closed its embassy in Copenhagen. Mozart Opera in Berlin pulled After the Danish cartoon uproar, a leading Berlin opera house pulled Mozart’s ‘‘Idomeneo’’ because of fears that it could lead to dangerous reactions. In one scene, King Idomeneo ‘‘presents the severed heads not only of the Greek god of the sea, Poseidon, but also of Mohammed, Jesus, and Buddha.’’ Swedish drawings About 18 months later, Swedish artist Lars Vilks displayed a rough sketch at a Stockholm seminar that showed Mohammed’s head on a pig’s body. The leader of Al Qaeda in Iraq announced a reward for the killing of Vilks as well as another Swedish newspaper editor who published the cartoon. The Met pulls three paintings In a precautionary move, the Metropolitan Museum of Art pulled three early paintings of the prophet before the images were unveiled in its Islamic collection, according to the New York Post. ‘South Park’ censorship ‘‘South Park,’’ known for its brazen depictions of Jesus, Scientologists, Catholics, and Jews, attempted to feature Mohammed in 2010. The show had done this two times before, but this attempt was stalled. After receiving threats from extremist groups, Comedy Central bleeped out all references to Mohammed, and all images of the prophet were censored. Molly Norris and ‘Everybody Draw Mohammed Day’ In 2010, Seattle-based cartoonist Molly Norris proposed that everybody create a drawing depicting Mohammed, as a response to death threats against those involved in the ‘‘South Park’’ segment that attempted to depict the prophet. Norris drew a variety of objects, including a box of pasta and coffee cup, likening those to the prophet. After her announcement of ‘‘Everybody Draw Mohammed Day,’’ the then-leader of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, Anwar al-Awlaki, said Norris has been put on an execution hit list. ‘Innocence of Muslims’ A 14-minute, low-budget YouTube video released in 2012 led to protests across the Muslim world. This video depicted Mohammed as a womanizer, child molester, homosexual, and a thug. The demonstrations led to dozens of deaths and hundreds of injuries, and there were some reports that the clip provoked the 2012 terrorist attack in the Libyan city of Benghazi that left a US ambassador dead.
