It has been a rather quiet day in France so a group of guys at the magazine, Charlie Hebdo decided they ought to get people a bit involved in life. I assume they were drinking coffee or something stronger when one of the people suggested there was need for a few more pictures that would infuriate the Muslim world and get people buying their magazine in order to burn it. One had an incredible idea– how about a naked Mohammad? WoW! responded the group.
So, they published the cartoon as well as one depicting an Orthodox Jew pushing Mohammad in wheelchair. After all, let’s make certain Muslims attack Jews and they can shout hatred of Israel.
The most intelligent comment of the day came from Dalil Boubakeur, rector of the Grand Paris Mosque; “this is a disgraceful and hateful, useless and stupid provocatin..” We are not like animals of Pavlov to react to each insult.”
