More about:

A furore over Danish cartoons depicting the Prophet Muhammad in 2005 sparked the idea of a counter-offensive by cartoonists around the world.

The international video journalist and cartoonists platform, VJ Movement, asked cartoonists in Islamic and other countries how they saw the increasing criticism of Islam in Europe.

The call produced 30 satirical drawings, most of them featuring Dutch rightwing anti-Islam MP Geert Wilders. Six are shown in the slideshow below.

According to spokesman Tjeerd Rooyaards of The Hague-based VJ Movement, "Mr Wilders' face is well-suited to being caricatured". Next month, VJ movement will launch a separate platform, Cartoon Movement.

Does any more proof needed to compare Mad Islam to tolerant Geert Wilders? Has any one heard any threats from him or his followers over these tasteless cartoons? How many people were killed by Muslims, when they have encounters -according to their tastes"-tasteless cartoons?
About Islamic racist cartoons- has anyone seen the mirror image of Nazi racist anti Jewish propaganda in the description of Jews in Islamic Cartoons, or it's only in my imagination?

White westerners are full of it. Look at what they are doing to Wikileaks...that's their definition of "freedom of speech." As long as you agree with them, their retarded and degenerate culture, politics, racism etc you're ok. Westerners have committing violence for centuries so it's high time their feet be held to the fire.
Wilders is simply doing what white westerners have done for centuries : spread hatred, racism and violence.

Anonymous 7 December 2010 - 4:08am

"White westerners, white westerners, white westerners....blah, blah blah." Such inane chatter IS racism. Get the chip off your shoulder, knucklehead. You're an embarrassment to your compatriots.

Does anyone really care what Muslims think? I don't. has hundreds of cartoons protesting Islamaphobia and ironically enough most of them are as hateful as any Nazi propoganda that ever existed. Typical Islam- they respond to criticizism by acting like Nazis. If Muslims ever got out and protested homophobia, anti-atheist, anti-christian, and anti-jewish hate speech by THEIR media I could take them seriously. But they never do.

Pretty feeble attempts at 'thrashing' Geert. The phrase 'water off a ducks back' comes to mind. Waiting for rioting by Dutch people showing their outrage. I think I'll be in for a long wait. Nobody does outrage as well as sleighted Islamists. Watching them foaming at the mouth like rabid dogs, now that is funny.

Geert Wilders cartoons are not news. He's a politician. There have been plenty better than these, both pro and con, as a simple google image search (geert wilders cartoon) shows:
Any of these cartoonists taking a potshot at Islam, now THAT would be news.
