Skip to comments.French Mag to Publish Cartoons of Prophet Mohammed
Posted on 09/18/2012 3:44:36 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
A French satirical magazine is set to publish several cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed on Wednesday, a move that is likely to inflame the Islamic faithful and militants who have already rioted in more than 20 countries over a movie mocking the prophet.
Depictions of the prophet are strictly prohibited and considered blasphemous by Muslims. Cartoons of Muhammad published in Denmark in 2005 and then reproduced in newspapers across Europe triggered riots throughout the Mideast and Africa. Churches and embassies were torched and at least 100 people died in the outbreaks and police crackdowns.
The magazine Charlie Hebdo has confirmed that it will publish the cartoons, but has not revealed what they will depict. French newspaper Le Monde reports that some of the cartoons show the prophet in particularly explicit poses, without providing any further detail.

What are the odds the French will surrender?
As the man who played Agamemnon in the movie — TROY — said of Achilles:
“This man wants to die.”
What are the odds the French will surrender?
Say what you will about our French brothers but if they do publish it, they have more guts than most of the “Blame America First” crowd. That includes our current President.
More calls for blasphemy laws by the violent ones
I can't wait.
Its not the first time the anti-establishment, left-wing magazine has courted controversy. In 2011 the offices of Charlie Hedbo were bombed after it published an Arab Spring edition with the Prophet Muhammad as guest editor on the cover.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! They may be lefties but I love their sense of humor!
We need to do this every day of the week for the next six months!
I may even get me a copy and mail them to the White House! Get the Muslim-in-Chief upset!!
Someone may swerve into the obvious answer to the mad mussie problem......publish millions of pics of the goofy prophet in every web and print media around the world. Then what they gonna do kill everyone? They want to anyway so what’s the difference?
I wonder where a person could get hold of a copy stateside.
Wonder how many Americans will be indicted over this?
Maybe instead of becoming INflamed, they will become AFlamed. Spontaneous combustion? Hypergolic mozzies? I hope.
There will be plenty of copies online. I want to see it too.
Popcorn and a glass of fine wine, think.
A promotion by French auto makers who want older models burned off the streets, and encourage new sales.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
Will he be topless?
In a rare instance when I agree with the ACLU was the time Norm Seigal said that in reality the 1st amendment doesn’t protect free speech, it’s there to protect UNPOPULAR speech. Also Nathan Perlmutter who headed the ADL said that best way to deal with “hate speech” is NOT to censor it, but challenge it with more speech.
Think they have any bullets to protect their Embassy?
I think the real key to inciting Muslims around the world is to use video cartoons. They can be based on the supposing founding events of Islam, highlighting its barbarism and savagery, ignorance and primitivism. And, in the process, tear down their origin myths by making sarcastic light of them.
Mohammed can be portrayed as having satyriasis, but only of the perverted and grotesque. A rapist of men and animals, he exposes himself to small children, who he then tries to catch and rape as they flee. Conversely, he hates and fears women, because his mother beat him for his perversity.
Show him as a bad liar, who changes his visions for his own benefit, commits murder at intervals and then when caught, tells everyone that Allah told him to do it.
There really is no bottom to show what a disgusting, evil man he was.
In any event, make a dozen such animated videos and they could be put on the Internet and propagate around the world so fast that they could not be stopped. Hopefully their religious leaders would prohibit anyone from looking at them, to the effect you might imagine.
the muslims will go BALLISTIC !
My response to the announcement of the cartoons to be released on Wednesday
That includes our President, our Secretary of State, and our Ambassadors to the UN and Egypt.
“publish millions of pics of the goofy prophet in every web and print media around the world.”
Every day, 365 days per year. How long can they go?
About what I was thinking, and if the media in this country had a backbone, every last publication and TV station in the US would have published those Mohammed cartoons several years back as a show of solidarity in defense of free speech and freedom of the press.
It is insane to allow raging Moslems to erode our freedoms, and if we continue to give in there will be no end to their demands of 'respect' for Islam.
fight back !
we do not have to take their BS lying down
I’d like to see black flags and Korans burned in every infidel city on Earth
Someone may swerve into the obvious answer to the mad mussie problem......
You may have hit the nail on the head here. I mean this in a different way. Ok, so things simmer down for a while vis Salman Rushdie and Westergard in Norway. People become apprehensive that the Islamic sociopaths may be disturbed again. Then comes the inevitable opportunity. They go ballistic. Ranting, raving, burning, and threatening, even killing.
Just keep it coming every day. Even these souped up rage merchants can only expend so much energy. Even the hashish that they may use, eventually wears off. Smother 'em. Keep it coming, they will wear themselves out. Else be prepared to accept the whole terror driven subservient status, that they know has been adopted.
The French government, unlike the US, has powers to shut down publication of things deemed disruptive or inappropriate. It’s unlikely Francois Holland will allow this to go forward.
Lets get a Chip-In started to fund this!
Everyone says that the 14 Minute anti-Mohammad video that started all of this is reprehensible. But, when I watched it I got the feeling that the scenes were based on the recorded stories in the life of Mohammad.
For example, there must be a story of him not wearing under wear and a woman asks him to cover up. That must be a real story because no one would like to such a detail.
I haven’t heard anyone defend the video. I mean, it was crudely produced, but were the stories not based on what Mohammad actually was said to have done?
“A rapist of men and animals”
Did he really have sex with men and animals? How do we know this? Is this among the stories of his life? It if is, why is it blasphemy to tell people about it?
I got so disgusted with the PC cover up of Islam that I made this blog. Questions About Islam
Instead of saying funny, satirical or insulting things, I simply ask questions about what a sick puppy of a religion it is.
Sometimes subtlety is better than direct attacks.
I note your remark and will bookmark the link. Sometimes some of us get so angered that we would have rather reworded our comments. Speaking for myself of course, well, I will sleep on it and take a detailed look at what you have recommended tomorrow.
Real traditional leftwing liberals should at least agree with us on the pillars of the enlightenment freedoms such as freedom of speech, and be against fascists of any political stripes. I am talking about people like the departed Hitchens...
Pity there are so few of them left.
“A rapist of men and animals, he exposes himself to small children”
Question: I know that there are stories about Muhammad doing stuff like this. But, isn’t in their writings, so wouldn’t Muslims who study the writings about the Life of Muhammad know this stuff already?
I mean, everyone know he married a nine year old and that he ordered decapitations left and right.
Couldn’t someone simply document each story of perversity by citing the chapter and verse?
The intent is not to portray an accurate in any way picture of Mohammed, but to paint him as a buffoon, gross, violent and stupid. Comic denunciation. As an animated cartoon he could be cartoonish. A man who invariably slips in fresh camel dung, landing face first in it.
