Jesus and Mo have a few things to say regarding the lunacy in Saudi Arabia …
I love satire, it is often the most powerful and effective way to communicate criticism.
If you have never encountered Jesus & Mo before the I guess you have a few questions … there is an About that explains …
Is that really the Prophet Mohammed?
No, it’s a body double. Mohammed couldn’t make it, as he has been dead for centuries.
Is that really Jesus?
Yes, that is really Jesus. I don’t know how he does it, but he always finds time in his busy schedule to appear in the comic whenever someone loads a J&M page in their browser.
Why is the Barmaid never drawn?
It is forbidden. Plus, I can’t draw barmaids.
Why is the art so bad?
Because I’m such a bad artist.
I find the comic very offensive. Can you take it down?
Ah but perhaps the most important bit for me is the next point there …
Can I use one of your strips in my blog/website/newsletter/dissertation etc?
Please do. J&M is published under a Creative Commons 3.0 license, which means you can reprint, edit, translate the strips for non-commercial purposes provided you link back to jesusandmo.net.
Oh and least you not get the above cartoon, the original Saudi flag has a sword. The criticism here is that we have a national flag that sends a rather offensive message
- Arabic text that says “There is no God but Allah and Muhammad is his Prophet.”
- And a sword under it as a hint regarding what happens if you don’t agree
