French Weekly to Publish Life of Mohammed Comics
Arutz Sheva ^ | 30/12/12 | Rachel Hirshfeld

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 Islam’s founder that will be strictly educational.

The weekly often depicts Islam’s 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 doesn’t 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.”

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.

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.

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.

American presstitutes only have “courage” to attack Christians because we tend not strap explosives to ourselves and make a human flambe.

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 doesn’t 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.

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!

On facebook, a poster calling himself "No Dog but Allah" posts cartoons like this, which I think would be very similar.

I think it would be funny to make Mohammed comics that would circulate on the Internet underground. Published (unauthorized) by the Democratic National Committee, DNC comics would be less charitable to Mohammed or Islam.

Various stories could begin with caricature narration from well known Democrats. For instance, Harry Reid could narrate the story of how Mohammed sodomized his first goat.

This will become a new cottage industry. Hitler will learn about it and yell at his commanders. Mad Magazine will run spoofs. Lots of Youtubers will contribute lots of crap. South Park will jump back over the shark to be interesting again. Free Republic will have its own topic for poking fun at Moohamed. The madder the Muslims get, the more they’ll be laughed at, especially after they kill a few people, appeal to the UN and Congress, and try to make screwy arguments about how their rights are being violated because everyone’s picking on them. Dissing Mohammed will be criminalized in some places, and civil disobedience will have a whole new flavor. It’s the only thing against which they have no chance of effectively responding. Relentless mirth at their expense, coming from every direction and no direction all at the same time.

“And pictures of Mohammed are absolutely forbidden. “

So how do they know it was Mohammed, if they’ve never seen a picture of him? “Picture? What picture? Oh, that? That’s a picture of a different crazed pseudo-prophet megalomaniac. That’s Larry-hammed. They’ve got a brother Curl-hammed, who died and was replaced by Shemfhammed, and later Curlyjohammed.”

Of course it’s going to piss the muskies off. Making pictures of the Big Muskie is out of bounds to them. Expect more firebombs.

Oh, I dunno. Hindus are no slouches in the mayhem department when the stars align. Vastly more tolerant than the Muslims though.

I’m not aware of any particular Buddhist propensity to riot. Setting oneself on fire is another matter ....

Then there were those samurais, Zen Buddhists, and the Ninjas were originally itinerant Buddhist monks. But that was organized bloodshed; assassinations, oppression of peasants, not rioting. Christians used to do a bit of violence, too. But they aren’t doing that lately, and neither are Buddhists, so why are the arty-farty crowd not picking on them? They’re a safe target, just like Jews and Christians.
