The Lars Vilks Cartoon...

Vilks has no regrets...
The point of a caricature depicting the Prophet Muhammad as a dog was to show that artistic freedom allows mockery of all religions, including the most sacred symbols of Islam, the Swedish artist who created it said Wednesday.

Lars Vilks - the target of an alleged murder plot involving an American woman who dubbed herself "Jihad Jane" - told The Associated Press he has no regrets about the drawing, which is considered deeply offensive by many Muslims.

"I'm actually not interested in offending the prophet. The point is actually to show that you can," Vilks said in an interview in Stockholm. "There is nothing so holy you can't offend it."

From the cartoon, how are we supposed to know that is a dog? And, how are we supposed to know that is Muhammad?

Not meaning to disparage the artist, but it could be any kids drawing using their imaginations.

I guess that's the artists point, the whole debate is ridiculous!
