Magic books do not give you the right to kill people.

Facebook is no stranger to protests. But the protest that ripped through Facebook today may be the strangest – and the most pitched – to date. Here's a primer: Last month, under fire from Muslim groups in the US and abroad, the television network Comedy Central agreed to censor an episode of South Park that showed the Prophet Mohammad in a bear suit.

That didn't sit well with the Seattle-based artist Molly Hill, who created a cartoon lampooning Comedy Central's decision. Hill's cartoon features a fake poster declaring May 20th "Everybody Draw Mohammad Day." Hill insists she was not actually calling for a "Draw Mohammad Day," but within a few days, a few folks had taken up the cause, and created a Facebook group called – you guessed it – "Everybody Draw Mohammad Day."

The blowback was quick and furious. Hill was bombarded with angry messages; eventually, she posted a disclaimer on her personal site. "I am horrified! My one-off cartoon that was specifically about Comedy Central's behavior.... is not good for a long-term plan," she wrote. "The results have shown to be vitriolic and worse, offensive to Muslims who had nothing to do with the censorship issue I was inspired to draw about in the first place."

Hill encouraged the founders of the Facebook group to cancel the competition immediately.

Her words did little to quell anger. According to the Associated Press, a group of Islamic lawyers today won a court order requiring officials in Pakistan to block access to Facebook until May 31. Meanwhile, thousands of protesters flocked to the streets of Karachi, carrying placards denouncing both Facebook and the proposed "Everybody Draw Mohammad Day."

Of course, this being 2010, much of the fighting over the proposed event has been conducted on the Web – and more specifically, on Facebook. Two groups – one entitled "Everybody Draw Mohammad Day" and other called "Protest Against Draw Mohammad Day" – each have attracted thousands of fans.

By Wednesday afternoon, the tone of the comments on both group pages had grown so acidic that many users called for Facebook to take action. "Let us all unite against these elements that spread hatred and disrespect in the world. Let's report such pages and groups as abuse, that’s the least we can do to promote love and peace," one user wrote on the "Protest Against Draw Mohammad Day" page.

  • Facebook? Who cares? I lived the first 37 years of my life without the internet and could happily go on without the whole fucking shabang. It seems to me like you islamic pigs only started spreading your radical bullshit since the advent of the internet.

  • I must mention the irony of a Muslim calling other a pedophile. Please read the following:

    Bacha Bazi

    Bacha Bazi is an Farsi term meaning child play. It is recognized as sexual slavery and child prostitution[2]. Prepubescent children are sold to wealthy or powerful men for entertainment and sexual activities. This business thrives in northern Afghanistan, where many men keep them as status symbols[3]. Some of the individuals involved report being forced into sex, while others report strong More..

  • South Park can show Buddha and Jesus arguing about who's addiction is worse, Buddha snorting cocaine or Jesus watching internet porn, and there's no significant reaction. But, they didn't even show the space-pedophile, and suddenly a bomb is planted outside Viacom (owns South Park) to hopefully murder as many random innocent people as possible.

    You can insult any religion on Earth. Only insulting Islam can get you killed.

  • I actually took my sweet time to draw mohammed today. Though the pic was removed an hour later. I don't know why, cause it's not a fraction as offensive as some other pics on that site.
