Day Late

I forgot about "Draw Mohammed Day" yesterday, but I had recently posted an image from the earliest known manuscripts of Dante's Inferno showing Mohammed (with his entrails hanging out) as my response to the outrage over South Park. Michelle Malkin linked to my source for the image on her site yesterday, the Mohammed Image Archive.

Looking through the images, I wish that I had used the one below, a detail from a larger illustration by Botticelli.

Mohammed with entrails, Ali with his head cut in half. I like this one because the guts are actually dragging on the ground. (Image from DanteWorlds, via Mohammed Image Archive)
