Skip to comments.French Weekly to Publish Life of Mohammed Comics
Posted on 12/30/2012 1:51:04 PM PST by Eleutheria5
Charlie Hebdo, the French weekly known for publishing satirical cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed and enraging much of the Muslim world, said Sunday that it plans to release a comic book biography of Islams founder that will be strictly educational.
The weekly often depicts Islams prophet using caricatures and parodies in an effort to defend free speech and defy the anger of Muslims who believe depicting Mohammed visually is sacrilegious.
The series, entitled "Muhammad's Life," will be an Islamically authorized biography because it is being written by Muslim commentators, said the weekly's publisher, known only as Charb.
The only thing we are doing is transferring the text to images, he said, adding that he doesnt think that higher Muslim minds could find anything inappropriate with the content.
The biography will be published Wednesday and was put together by a Franco-Tunisian researcher known only as Zineb, Charb said, according to AFP.

Charlie Hebdo shall do this? Something tells me that it will “enrage Muslims.”
I see Auto-flambe in their future.
Gutzy guys at Charlie Hebdo.
As long as you’re going to enrage them, go for the gold. Can’t wait for the picture of Mad Mo smearing whip cream all over his nine-year-old bride.
More Chutzpah than the average American presstitute.
You can say a lot about the French [and you’d probably be right] but you’ve got to give them some credit for standing up for their culture.
Oui. Now eef only vee can find zese "highyar muslim minds"...
Indeed. By the way, what, pray tell, does NOT enrage Mohammedans?
That editor has courage. You will never see any such work in an American publication. However American editors “fearlessly” will rip the Pope, Catholic and Christian figures on a regular basis.
I think one was that Muslim kid holding up a sign saying that “free speech does not equal (math symbol) insulting prophet Muhammed”. Certainly makes sense, in a Rogain-starved assertion sort of way.
None are as gutsy in the ‘Home of the Brave’.
Also Jewish figures. Dunno why they don’t go after Buddhist and Hindu figures. They don’t burn things down and riot, either.
I don’t recommend experimenting with real, live Muslims until you find something that actually doesn’t enrage them. Safe to assume that any damned thing can and will enrage them, given the wrong/right circumstances.
“...he doesnt think that higher Muslim minds could find anything inappropriate with the content.”
No such thing as a ‘higher muslim mind’...they are all inbred, seventh-century barbarians adhering VERY closely to the lunatic ravings of their pedophile prophet.
My guess is that this will spawn some more violent muzzie responses...if history serves as a guide.
Let’s make Mohammed Cookies!!!
Well, there’s no such thing as a tolerant Muslim.
And pictures of Mohammed are absolutely forbidden. So there’s no way this can be acceptable, no matter who writes the text or what it says.
“Vive la France!”
And I will toast that sentiment with a glass of red wine & a slice of summer sausage (pork, of course).
O Muslims! Our infidel bullets are lubed with pig grease!
