Muhammad Bobbleheads Brought to You by...

NY Daily News: A ceramic bobblehead doll of the Prophet Muhammed - created to resemble the infamous caricature published by a Danish newspaper - is being hawked online for $22.99 a pop by an ex-Marine.

The unapologetic creator, Timothy Ames, 28, said the bobblehead is similar to "dashboard Jesus" figurines that can be stuck with adhesive to flat surfaces. "I thought, 'If they flipped out over some cartoons what will they do with a dashboard Muhammed?'" Ames said from his home in Hawaii.

But Islamic experts are not amused, saying the bobbleheads could anger Muslims, whose religion strictly prohibits depictions of the prophet.

"No depiction of the prophet, even if it is positive, should be made ever - and certainly not one as ridiculous as the bobblehead Muhammed," said Zvi Ben-Dor Benite, an assistant professor at New York University. "I don't think it's about freedom of speech. This is the freedom to insult, which he shouldn't be doing."

Get yer bobblehead Muhammads here!!!!! Just in time for this Christmas Season! The perfect gift for the infidel in your life!

Yes we here at the Jawa are happy to help out. I hope he gets rich. Fatwa?

Related sort of. Rusty really wants to call attention to this:

I think this article is huge. It reveals the mindset of the Danish Islamist "cleric" who helped stir the ruckus over the cartoons of Mohammed. Please take a look at this article from the Guardian.
