The last time Charlie Hebdo mocked Mohammed their Paris offices were firebombed.
(AFP) Fears that a wave of anger in the Islamic world could spread to Europe mounted as it emerged a French magazine was planning to publish cartoons caricaturing the Prophet Mohammed.
Satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo confirmed that its latest edition contains several cartoons featuring Mohammed that the publication’s editor said would “shock those who will want to be shocked.”
The magazine is due to hit the streets today against a background of protests across the Islamic world over a crude US-made film that mocks Mohammed and portrays Muslims as gratuitously violent.
At least 30 people have died so far in demonstrations held in over 20 countries.
Charlie Hebdo is no stranger to controversy over its handling of the issues relating to Islam.
Last year it published an edition “guest-edited” by the Prophet Mohammed that it called Sharia Hebdo. The magazine’s offices in Paris were subsequently fire-bombed in what was widely seen as a reaction by Islamists.
Charlie Hebdo’s latest move was greeted with immediate calls from political and religious leaders for the media to act responsibly and avoid inflaming the current situation.
Prime Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault issued a statement expressing his “disapproval of all excesses.”
Good to know the French underground is alive and well!
And when the muznuts start the volence, sock it to ‘em.
It appears that we ‘Murricans are without cojones...it’ll be up to you.
By the way, would you like a president? He’s like new - the brain (what little of it there is) has never been used.
Vive la Liberté!
The world needs to be inundated with the islam-mocking material from every corner of the planet.
It would desensitize the general public to it, and after awhile, the moslems would get also used to it.
They can only hold that level of rage so long, especially if they were to be getting blown up every time they whack out.
I would like to see every publication in every Western country, every blog and every website openly mock Islam and let the world see it for what it is—a murderous cult that needs to be destroyed down to the ground.
Yeah. But I wonder how long it’ll be before he’s ‘contained’.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.

Gratuitously violent? Us?
“Charlie Hebdos latest move was greeted with immediate calls from political and religious leaders for the media to act responsibly and avoid inflaming the current situation.”
In the current situation, Charlie Hebdo IS acting responsibly. The current situation is one in which Islamists are trying to buffalo the West into abject surrender. Today a video and a magazine, tomorrow the world. It is irresponsible to go along with this fascistic intimidation.
