Prophet Mohammed Cartoons to Be Published in Paris – Police At Ready

Just recovering from riots in Yemen, Malaysia, Bangladesh, and Iraq, as well as the infamous attack on the US embassy in Libya resulting in the deaths of the ambassador and 3 others, the western world is gearing up for another potential round of violence coming out of Muslim territories as a French satirical magazine promises to publish several Prophet Mohammed cartoons on Wednesday.

According to the French newspaper “Le Monde”, the drawings to be published in “Charlie Hebdo” show Mohammed in “particularly explicit poses”.

The Islamic world, allegedly incensed over the YouTube movie “Innocence of Muslims” mocking Mohammed and casting him in a bad light, lashed out across the world, rioting in over 20 countries in the last month.  In 2005, cartoons of Mohammed published in Denmark and republished throughout the world led to widespread riots and led to the deaths of over 100 people, as well as the torching of churches, embassies, and private property.

French government ministers have decried the magazine’s decision, with Paris police increasing security around their offices.  The paper defended its right to free speech in France.

France is home to Europe’s largest Muslim population. The AFP reports that the senior Muslim cleric at Paris’ biggest mosque has appealed to worshippers to remain calm.

  1. Those riots were Not the result of a 13min clip posted on you tube in July..so please stop perpetuating the hype those riots and subsequent deaths were apart of a concerted effort. Just another excuse..I'm glad the mag. IS excersizing it's RIGHT to free speech! It's FREE SPEECH..and sometimes that offends. Get OVER it! The rest of the WORLD does (and we're expected to) why do we expect less of them?

  2. Ethan Perks says:

    This won't stop until the west tell Muslims that this behaviour will not be tolerated. If you want to act like savages, go back to where you came from.
    But we won't until blood flows in the streets.
