Charlie Hebdo attacked

The offices of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo have been firebombed, causing extensive damage, because the latest edition, entitled Charia Hebdo, carried a cartoon of Mohammed on the cover.

Charlie’s Law: “100 lashes of the whip if you don’t die laughing”

A single petrol bomb was thrown through the window at approximately 3am. There were no injuries.

This is not the first time Charlie Hebdo has been on the receiving end of Muslim rage. MWW covered extensively the protests, and the trial and acquittal of its editor Philippe Val which followed the publication of this special edition:

Too true: “It’s hard being loved by idiots” says Mo on the cover of this Feb 2006 edition

    Turning Mohammed into a global figure of ridicule and international laughing stock is the surest way to destroy Islam.

    The character of Mohammed is the cult’s Achilles heel, and attacks such as this demonstrate how vulnerable Islam is on this point.

    Any doubts as to the character of Mohammed can cause the whole house of Islam to sink into the quicksand of its foundations. Muslims realise this, because they fly into tantrums whenever Mohammed or the Koran is ‘disrespected’ . Under Sharia law any criticism or either Mohammed or the Koran is blasphemy which is punished by death.

    This paranoid, hypersensitive defensiveness and outrage at criticism are not the reactions of a confident belief system, but of an information-control cult. These reactions are evidence of an attempt to protect a fatal vulnerability, an attempt to cover an Achilles heel.

    We need to satirise and ridicule Mohammed until the Muslims fly into uncontrollable tantrums, then ridicule them even more for their tantrums, and repeat the process until they froth at the mouth and steam comes out of their ears.
