Charlie Hebdo: French Magazine's Cover Cartoon of Muhammad Draws a Molotov Cocktail

Earlier this week a French satirical magazine, Charlie Hebdo, published an issue naming Muhammad to be its Editor-In-Chief, including a cartoon of the glorious "Prophet" on the cover.  The name of the magazine was temporarily renamed "Charia Hebdo."  (Charia, or Sharia, is Islamic law.)  Muslims in Paris quickly fire-bombed the offices of the magazine, destroying all of its property and equipment.  Charlie Hebdo is fighting back, by printing more of the issue and making it available to anyone who wants to read it.

Below is the cover that the Followers of the Bearded Imposter (also known as Muhmmad) found so obectionable.  It reads in French, "100 lashes if you don't die laughing."  (More outrageous Hebdo covers below the fold.)




































Hebdo's goal is to either offend its readers or make them laugh at its outrageous content.  Here are two more covers that are especially funny.

This one shows Dominique Strauss-Kahn (DSK), the socialist and former candidate for the presidencey of France, in a political parade.  DSK was the man arrested in New York for allegedly assaulting a maid.  Charges against him were dropped when the maid was found to be a serial liar.  Nevertheless, DSK's lecherous pursuits and extramarital affairs are well known and a well established fact.  So in this cartoon, people are throwing condoms instead of confetti!




































I think this last cover is outrageously funny even though it is in extremely poor taste! It shows Michael Jackson as a skeleton, with the description, "Michael Jackson Finally White."
