    French magazine firebombed over caricature of Mohammed

    As if the world didn't need another reason to shoot, piss on and ground up for fertalizer, every muslim on this earth.


    A gasoline bomb attack burned down the offices of the French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo Wednesday after it portrayed the Prophet Mohammed on its front page and named him "guest editor".
    The arson attack was denounced across the French political spectrum as an assault on freedom of expression.
    The cover of this week's issue, out Wednesday, depicts Mohammed saying: "100 lashes if you don't die of laughter." A back page cartoon shows a bearded prophet with a red nose and the caption: "Yes, Islam is compatible with humour."
    The magazine is also mockingly renamed "Charia Hebdo" - a pun on Islamic Shariah law.
    The fiercely anticlerical magazine said the move was intended to "celebrate" the victory of Islamist party Ennhada in Tunisia's election, and the inclusion of Shariah in the Libyan constitution.
    It's editor-in-chief, Stephane Charbonnier, known as Charb, said: "We no longer have a newspaper. All our equipment has been destroyed."
    No one was hurt in the blaze, believed to have been started by two Molotov cocktails thrown at the paper's headquarters in Paris's 20th arrondissement overnight. Computers used to design the paper and digital archives were destroyed. Windows shattered in the heat and charred boxes were piled up outside the offices yesterday, with police guarding the entrance.
    The magazine's website was also hacked overnight, with the welcome page replaced by a picture of Mecca full of pilgrims and the words: "No god but Allah". Charlie Hedbo has taken up temporary quarters at the Liberation newspaper's offices.
    "We will do everything possible to put a paper next week. There is no question of giving in to Islamists," said Mr Charbonnier, who noted that the attackers could not have read the offending magazine. "Nobody knows what's in it except those who bought it this morning, that's what's most abhorrent and stupid." Islamic law generally opposes any depiction of the prophet on the premise it could lead to idolatry.
    Danish cartoons of Mohammed caused outrage in the Muslim world in 2005 and at least 50 people were killed in the ensuing unrest. Charlie Hebdo was taken to court by Muslims in 2007 for "racial insults" after reprinting the cartoons - a decision the then French president Jacques Chirac condemned as "overt provocation". The editor of the time, Philippe Val, was later acquitted. Mr Val was assigned bodyguards for several months, but Mr Charbonnier said that he had taken no precautions ahead of yesterday's publication, despite receiving threats on Twitter and Facebook.
    Behind the humour, the magazine's editorial makes a serious point. "No religion is compatible with democracy from the moment a political party representing it wants to take power in the name of God," it states.
    French politicians were swift to condemn the arson attack.
    Francois Fillon, the prime minister, said: "Freedom of expression is an inalienable value of our democracy. No cause can justify a violent action."
    The main representative body of the Muslim faith in France, the French Muslim Council (CFCM), denounced the attack but found fault with the magazine. "The CFCM deplores the deeply mocking tone of the newspaper towards Islam and its prophet, but reaffirms with force its total opposition to any act or form of violence," it said.
    The attack has come at a time when France is grappling with where to draw the line between religious freedom and secularism in a country with Europe's largest Muslim population.
    Luze Ronald, the cartoonist who penned the front page drawing, said he felt that what irked fundamentalists most, if they were found to be behind the attack, was the idea that "Mohammed might have a sense of humour".

    He knew exactly what would happen and lit the fuse. I'm glad of it too. Let stop this cowtowing to what is really an unreasonable religion and have no more of Muslim violent intolerance. We put up with their shit , let Islam preach tolerance, too.
    I'd like to see every newspaper in the world, next Friday publish an image of the "Prophet " and caption it it any way they wish .

    I've got a worker who's sort of half assed Muslim, the kind that will drink on occasion , doesn't adhere to Ramadan, etc - I recently took in a puppy and now he's acting as if we are to keep it away from him and I'm to wash my hands if I touch anything he needs to.

    Uh, yes please do quit your 600 baht a day job.


    I never knew about this dog hate stuff until I moved to Tland, kinda odd the powers that demonize Islam never made this clear, Americans would be more likey to be just as intolerant.
    Or is it just this S. Thai/ N. Malay region? They are kinda worse than anywhere, forcing people to obsrve Ramadan for instance.

    When I was young I thought the French were supposed to be cool and understanding, but I see now many are vicious and Zionist pricks.

    I think the love of dogs has gotten out of hand in the Western world. When I was growing up my non Muslim parents would never allow a dog in the house, because the house was your sanctuary, and you kept it fucking clean. They didn't want no dog wiggling its bare ass on the furniture, or having to look at some slobbering mutt while you're sitting down to eat a meal. I feel the same about cats, keep them in the fucking wild.

    So thats half naked women, bacon sarnies, beer, music, fun, and mans best friend that are frowned on by Islam. What a joyless dull existence it truly must be to be Muslim. No wonder they're always so fucking angry.

    You know what would be awesome? It would be awesome if the Europeans never invaded the Arab and African countries, killed their people, and stole their resources, because then the Europeans wouldn't be obligated to have Muslim/African immigrants in their countries. If there wasn't a continous involvement of Europe in the Arab/African world they could tell these immigrants to fuck off with not a morsel of regret, but the Europeans continue to fuck around in that part of the world....

    Hey Nazi. You seem to be forgetting something.

    The muslims attacked the US. Before that there was no US boots in the middle east.

    Gaddafi blew up that plane over Scotland before NATO was in Libya.

    The rag heads started it, the west is finishing it.

    I would get socked in the eye, and made to dispose of the dog. Dogs belong in the yard, not in homes, not in restaurants, not in supermarkets. I'm so sick of selfish fucks bringing their dogs everywhere. When I was a kid (and that wasn't that long ago) it was unheard of to see a dog in a store, now it is becoming more and more common. Hell, it was rare for people to even own dogs 15-20 years ago. Of the 15 or so kids who I grew up with on my street, only one or two families owned dogs, now that would be like 80 percent. We didn't have to worry about dogs in playgrounds, or stepping in dog shit that is all over the place now.

    WOaa to bad for Charlie Hebdo the satyric cartoon magazine.

    Reminds me of my stay in Jeddah, Saudi back in 1995, the Saudi complained to french international TV5 chanel to post less nudity as they cannot follow up the sensoring and this nudity is not intended in their country.

    TV5 answered, sorry, zap, change channel, we are who we are...

    1 month later it was still on, not sure TV5 still found in Saudi, never returned and really not miss the place
