Caricatures of Muhammad : Does Islam Prohibit Drawing Mohammed?

The soldiers of Allah have struck again. On Monday, Elton Simpson, a convert to Islam and his Pakistani-American partner, Nadir Soofi, attacked a convention centre in Garland, Texas, where 200 people were attending a contest to draw cartoons of Prophet Mohammed.
Thanks to a quick-thinking traffic police officer, both men, carrying assault rifles, were shot dead in a 15-second exchange of gunfire that left an unarmed security officer injured.
Islamic clerics in Texas denounced the terror attack, but also called on Muslims "not to be baited" into anger. 
The hint behind this message was that contest organizer Pamela Geller had provoked Muslims into acting violently.
