Folks, amid all the news of the destruction of unsuspecting (and surprised) Scandinavians' consulates and threats of mayhem to be unleashed upon the kuffar (the non-Muslim rest of us) I offer the opinion that the notion that Muhammad's likeness can not be made is baloney.
To the left you may observe a Persian (therefore Shia) painting dated 1550 AD (CE if you prefer) which depicts the Prophet himself mounted on Burak (magical beast) en route to Paradise for a one night visit. This visit is reputed to have begun in Jerusalem at the site of the Dome of the Rock. This is the same rock on which various other events took place in the Old Testament and from which Gabriel will sound his trumpet at THE END, or at least that is what Cole Porter wrote.
Outrage is a sometimes thing.
