The great day has arrived at last.
A day to resound down the corridors of history. A day to thrill the blood of the young and warm the aching bones of the old.
I speak, of course, of the First Annual Everybody Draw Mohammed Day. The occasion was first announced a few weeks ago, and then experienced an unprecedented viral explosion. As of this writing, there are more than 68,000 members of the Everybody Draw Mohammed Day Facebook page. Pakistan has shut down access to Facebook to make sure that the tender sensibilities of its citizens will not be assaulted by all this vile kuffar blasphemy.
The fatwa-printing machines will be overheating tonight in Mecca and Al-Azhar.
Below is my modest contribution to this momentous occasion:
And, for further inspiration and with apologies to Shakespeare, here is a slightly revised version of Henry’s speech before Agincourt in The Life of King Henry the Fifth (Act 4, Scene 3) :
But we in it shall be remembered —
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne’er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition;
And gentlemen in England now-a-bed
Shall think themselves accurs’d they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us on Draw Mohammed Day.
