This is a follow up to the video "Draw Muhammad Day", posted on May 20th 2010. In this video I address a few points I kept seeing being made in the comment section of the original post. Unfortunately, this video was a little rushed and I didn't have time to go back and fix a couple glitches in the audio/video, as well as correct some grammatical errors. But hopefully the arguments are sound and you enjoy the production. Thank you!

Note:
I am already anticipating there will be some comments about my use of the word "monolith" to describe the Ka'aba in Mecca. Yes, I know it is not technically a monolith, but the Ka'aba always reminded me of that scene in "2001 A Space Odyssey" when the monkeys are gathered around the giant, singing monolith as they appear to worship and bow to it.

I am not trying to imply that I think Muslims resemble monkeys, I'm just saying thats what it reminds me of. :) Anyway, I just used this term to drive home the point that the Ka'aba appears to be an object of worship. But even if Muslims aren't technically worshiping the Ka'aba it still presents a problem to their world-view. Why does their so-called desire to prevent all possible objects of idolatry only extent to depictions of Muhammad? Furthermore, why do Muslims feel the Ka'aba is not at risk of being an object of worship but cartoon images are?
