One of the moderators from the Facebook group Cartoonist's Cafe reached out to me to see why I was no longer in the group. He pulled some strings and got me unblocked. Below chronicles my first encounter upon my return. Notice there is still a very strong anti-Islam presence encouraged in the group, and any pro-Muslim (or even fair) pushback is immediately attacked.

Muhammad Rasheed - An FBI study looking at terrorism committed on U.S. soil between 1980 and 2005 found that 94 percent of the terror attacks were committed by non-Muslims. Check it out:
FBI.gov - Chronological Summary of Terrorist Incidents in the United States 1980-2005
Ruchit Pathak - ^u forgot ur pinch of salt.
plus fbi study is restricted to USA.
Muhammad Rasheed - Ah. Sorry. Your cartoon didn't make such a distinction.
Speaking of which, did you know that the Tamil Tigers were the world's first (and largest group of) suicide bomber terrorists? They weren't Muslims.
Alan Groening - drop it.
Ruchit Pathak - ^lol its good that I'm not holding a bomb !
Muhammad Rasheed - lol
Alan Groening - @Muhammad Rasheed… @Ruchit Pathak… both of you guys just go back to posting your cartoons, ok... we're all here for the cartoons... not for this crap.
Muhammad Rasheed - Will do.
Alan Groening - thanks
Alan Groening - yeah yeah... ok so your a troublemaker, I'd already figured that one out... but so am I so all is good... I just wanted this to simmer down, I didnt want anybody fanning the flames and riling it back up again.
