PARIS (Reuters) - A French magazine ridiculed the Prophet Mohammad on Wednesday by portraying him naked in cartoons, threatening to fuel the anger of Muslims around the world who are already incensed by a video depicting him as a lecherous fool.

The drawings in the satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo risked exacerbating a crisis that has seen the storming of U.S. and other Western embassies, the killing of the U.S. ambassador to Libya and a deadly suicide bombing in Afghanistan.

Riot police were deployed to protect the paper's Paris offices after it hit news stands.

It featured several caricatures of the Prophet showing him naked in what the publishers said was an attempt to poke fun at the furore over the film. One, entitled "Mohammad: a star is born", depicted a bearded figure crouching over to display his buttocks and genitals.

It’s too easy to create 15-minutes ShockWave Flash animated mohammed anti islamist converted to MP4 but uploading it in Youtube without being traced is another. :-)

But Charlie Hebdo's editor, Stephane Charbonnier rejected the criticism. "We have the impression that it's officially allowed for Charlie Hebdo to attack the Catholic far-right but we cannot poke fun at fundamental Islamists," he said.

This from the editor of a left-wing magazine. I guess the hypocrisy got so deep that she couldn't defend it anymore.

[If the entire western world did this...]

Good idea, the whole islamic world would have collective brain aneurisms and exploding heads.

Yeah, almost as big as Ann Barnhardt’s.

Can someone explain the silence around Ann’s Koran burning video, even as it is going viral in the Middle East? She ridicules and taunts them, and then say’s “come and get me”.

The front page says, “No need to mock”

The back page:

Mo being filmed in a suggestive position, upper left corner: “The film that embarrassed the muslim world”...”And my backside? You like my backside?”

Mo showing his backside with a star: “Mohammed - a star is born.”

I’ll have to blow the pic up to see the rest.

One thing we haven’t noticed yet were any “homegrown” muslim street theater; perhaps they realize we would rise up and kill them.

Can someone on FR transtlate the French text in each of the various panels into English?

By the way, it is about time someone had the GUTS and FORTITUDE to finally stand up to this murderous mob. FRANCE of all people taking a stand for freedom! Too bad it isn't the USA, but we will take victories wherever we can get them.

The one panel with Mad Mo's exposed butt (and everything else) in the air = PRICELESS! That one image alone will be remembered every time I see Mad Mo's murderous masses with their butts in the air "praying".

And here is a cluster of stars in a jet airplane toilet.

I downloaded the pic and enlarged it but can’t make out enough of the other panels to correctly translate. We’ll have to wait for a higher res pic.
