In Green: In paradise…
Allah: “May your evening be joyous, Abu Saleh, do you need anything?”
Jihadist: “Yes Lord, bring me the glass of wine from other there and tell Jibril [the Angel Gabriel] to bring me some cashews. After that send me an eternal servant to clean the floor and take the empty plates with you.”
Jihadist continues: “Don’t forget to put a door on the tent so that you knock before you enter next time, your gloriousness.”Nahed Hattar was a well-known and successful agnostic of Christian origin. Jordan is one of the few majority Muslim countries where that's okay. Or at least sort of okay, as long as you don't push things too far. Apparently, he did.
The cartoon was posted on Hattar's anti-ISIS Facebook page, and then later taken down. The idea is that Jihadists see themselves as above Allah and would try to order even him around in heaven.
But many Muslims saw the cartoon as blasphemous in and of itself - his Allah, parting the curtains of a heavenly harem, looks a bit like that famous Monty Python version parting the clouds. And how dare anyone joke about Allah being ordered around - even if the point of the joke was to make fun not of Allah, but of those committing murder in his name.
After the government authorities announced an "investigation" into his cartoon and then charged him with "instigating strife," Hattar turned himself in.
A few weeks later he was assassinated in broad daylight in front of the Jordanian Supreme Court.
Security forces arrested the gunman, who was apparently an imam.
This is Nahed Hattar before he "blasphemed" Allah.

And here's a charming video of people frantically trying to revive Hattar as his blood drenches everything - on the steps of the Palace of Justice in one of Islam's most "moderate" countries.
