The French Affair With Mrs. Mohammed

Mrs. Mohammed Exposed.

"
"We have the
impression that it's officially allowed for Charlie Hebdo to attack the
Catholic far-right but we cannot poke fun at fundamental Islamists,"
said editor Stephane Charbonnier, who drew the front-page cartoon.
"It shows the
climate - everyone is driven by fear, and that is exactly what this
small handful of extremists who do not represent anyone want - to make
everyone afraid, to shut us all in a cave," he told Reuters.
One cartoon, in
reference to the scandal over a French magazine's decision to publish
topless photos of the wife of Britain's Prince William, showed a
topless, bearded character with the caption: "Riots in Arab countries
after photos of Mrs. Mohammad are published."
Charbonnier said he expected to double the usual 35,000-copy print run to meet demand."


I guess it's Britain's turn next. Nothing quite so funny and sporting as kicking someone when he's got his butt stuck up in the air, LOL.
