Bobblehead Mohammed; Now with Rage-Ometer!

Michelle Malkin had a story on the "Bobblehead Mohammed" this weekend.
It is supposed to be a take-off of the dashboard mounted Jesus statues.

You can buy one for you car at
Tactless, yes.
Does it merit the death penalty? Depends who you ask...

"No depiction of the prophet, even if it is positive, should be made ever - and certainly not one as ridiculous as the bobblehead Muhammed," said Zvi Ben-Dor Benite, an assistant professor at New York University. "I don't think it's about freedom of speech. This is the freedom to insult, which he shouldn't be doing."

Yeah, dude! Screw free speech when someone (read Muslims) might be insulted!!
Remember the crucifix in the urine art?

Frank Peters, a professor in the Department of Middle Eastern Studies at NYU, warned that a bobblehead Muhammed was "a really bad idea."

"Jews and Christians have gotten used to this kind of thing, but Muslims haven't," he said. "This may not be his intention, but these things have consequences."

Consequences = Death. Right?
Peace on out, bro.

Wuzzadem may have to update his Rage-ometer with a bobblehead pic:

Current Rage Level of Islamic Extremists: Normal

Also a hat tip to BillR for sending me the link before I saw it on Michelles site!
