This is the cartoon that got Jordanian writer, Nahed Hattar, killed today.

It illustrates an Arab Muslim man in paradise ordering god around like a servant while he lays in bed with two women demanding more wine.

The cartoon represents the twisted views of Islamic extremists who dream of the virgins & rivers of wine they believe are promised to them in paradise. In Nahed’s own words, “it mocks terrorists & their concept of god & heaven, it does not infringe god’s divinity in any way”, but outraged Muslims decided it was offensive & an insult to Islam.

In his memory & as a fuck you to those who were outraged, the cartoon should be shared everywhere.
