iSlam Muhammad App Pulled from iTunes, BibleThumper Not

Yogi over at RedPlanetCartoons.com hits the nail right on the head on this one. Apple recently pulled an app called iSlam Muhammad from their iTunes store. The app, by developer Emery Emery, depicted images of the prophet Muhammad and outlined disturbing passages from the Qur’an. Apple has allowed a similar app, BibleThumper, to be listed in its store.

When the app’s developer Emery Emery called Apple to find out why his app was removed, the associate told him, “that’s not a conversation I can have with you right now.”

This is definitely a conversation we need to be having right now. Cowardice and bowing before an enemy that wants to kill you never works out very well in the end. All of us, Apple included, may want to rethink the strategy here for dealing with the “religion of peace.”

  1. I’m very glad to see that this is getting some press. Apple needs to be held to account for this, as do all content providers who are cowed by these threats. Congrats to Emery Emery for standing up to the insanity.
