French Satirical Weekly Firebombed After Portraying Prophet Mohammad

November 2, 2011 on ITV News:
The offices of a French satirical newspaper that "invited" the Prophet Muhammad as a guest editor, has been seriously damaged after it was petrol bombed.

The front-page of the Charlie Hebdo weekly showed a cartoon-like man with a turban, white robe and beard smiling broadly and saying, in an accompanying bubble "100 lashes if you don't die laughing".


  1. Charlie Hebdo is apparently know for being provocative, however it is telling that none of their other "victims" ever decided to burn down the house.

    The attack is intolerable, and these fanatic idiots should realize that their actions are only causing the general public to get increasingly hostile towards them and their religion.

    Besides, if I understand it right, Mooh-ham-mad didn't just prohibit images, but idolatry, which as far as I know means any form of "worship" of himself, as it detracts from his god?
