February 2006 will go down in the records as a month of international Islamic furore, anger and violence. On September 30, 2005, Denmark’s leading daily newspaper, Jyllands-Posten, published 12 caricatures/cartoons of the Muslim Prophet, Muhammed. It seems that some frustration had been expressed about the lack of graphic artists willing to illustrate books on Islam in fear of offending Muslim extremists. In response, the newspaper asked for submissions of illustrations of Muhammed. Twelve of the result were published.
