stronger than hate?

Some People May Not Like Charlie Hebdo‘s Cartoon Muhammed And Gay Muslim Kiss

THE SHOT – The latest issue of Charlie Hebdo magazine is “guest edited” by the Islamic prophet Muhammed whose cartoon likeness promises, “100 lashes if you don’t die of laughter!” Another page features the magazine’s editor French kissing a Muslim man with the headline: “Love is stronger than hate.” Some Islamic folks do not find such promotional stunts amusing.

It might not surprise you that Turkish hackers left the following message on the magazine’s website: “You keep abusing Islam’s almighty Prophet with disgusting and disgraceful cartoons using excuses of freedom of speech…Be God’s Curse On You! We Will be Your Curse on Cyber World!” The magazine’s office was also firebombed by extremists last week.

No one was injured, but the editor might wanna get a bodyguard—some Islamic folks aren’t so big on cartoon depictions of their prophet.
