Mosque of Paris sues over Mo-toons

hebdo front page
Just when you thought it had all quieted down – AP reports that the Mosque of Paris has filed a suit against the French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo.

The newspaper published all 12 of the original Jyllands-Posten Mo-toons on February 8, in an issue devoted to Islam. Its front page boasted a huge image of a weeping Mohammed, titled “Mahomet débordé par les intégristes” (Muhammad overwhelmed by fundamentalists). He is saying “C’est dur d’être aimé par des cons” (It’s hard to be loved by morons).

Now leaders of the Paris Mosque are taking action, claiming that the publication was

deliberate act of aggression aimed at offending people of the Muslim religion in their attachment to their faith.

Yes, it’s called satire – and it predates Islam by over a thousand years. May you be laughed out of court, Mosque of Paris.
