Mohammed in textbooks

By

The potential seeds of a Moslem victory in Europe have been sown; a Swedish publishing company has withdrawn a decade old textbook because of two pictures of yep...Mohammed.

And just who drew these pictures?  Danish cartoonists?  Crusader descendants?  Jews?

The pictures were taken from a 14th century Persian (now known as Iran, ECF) manuscript and a 13th century Iraqi manuscript.

Well whaddaya know; over 700 years ago the ancestors of the inflamed mobs of today drew pictures of the founder of their religion.  What would they think of their descendants' behavior?
