You know how Jesus is uncritically dragged through the sh*t by South Park, SNL or any number of bands? Ok. Doesn't happen here at all. There's no Muhammed vs Frosty cartoon floating around by Moroccan cartoonists and no band with song titles like "Muhammed Hitler". In the words of Geetz, no one is gonna be parading under the banner "ALLAH is dead" any time soon. And they don't laugh at Jesus taking it over a barrel, either. All the prophets are revered in Islam.

SO - Don't assume inside every Muslim you like there is a wisecracking religious iconoclast waiting to break free and crap on his religion for laughs. If you do, your likelihood of being very, very wrong is very, very high.
