Yet another example of why the death-cult of Islam is incompatible with civilised society, and why further immigration and refugee intake from this backward ‘culture’ should be arrested forthwith. The social liberals who continue to sell out the West in this regard should also be held to account. Traitors one and all.
French satirical paper ‘firebombed’ after cartoon
November 3, 2011
PARIS (AFP) – The offices of a French satirical newspaper that published a special Arab Spring edition with the Prophet Mohammed as “guest editor” were destroyed in a suspected firebomb attack Wednesday, police said.
Charlie Hebdo published a special edition Wednesday to mark the Arab Spring, renaming the weekly newspaper Charia (Sharia) Hebdo for the occasion and featuring a front-page cartoon of the prophet saying: “100 lashes if you don’t die of laughter!”
The newspaper’s website also appeared to have been hacked on Wednesday, with its regular home page replaced with a photo of the Grand Mosque in Mecca and a message reading: “No god but Allah”.
French officials were quick to denounce the attack and offer support to the newspaper.
“Freedom of the press is a sacred freedom in our country and everything must be done to preserve it,” Interior Minister Claude Gueant told AFP.
