French Magazine Portrays Prophet Mohammad Naked In Cartoons, Set To Further Infuriate Muslim World

Tyler Durden's picture


It's almost as if someone is actively trying to force the Muslim world to launch an all out war against the "developed" west. A week ago, it was a film mocking Mohammad which led to the death of the US ambassador in Libya. Today, it is a French magazine which has ridiculed the Prophet Mohammad by portraying him naked in cartoons, which, as Reuters logically adds, "threatens to fuel the anger of Muslims around the world who are already incensed by a film depiction of him as a womanizing buffoon." It is as if the anti-Iran strategy of antagonizing the country to its breaking point, merely so the first attack comes from them in response to endless provocations, and a defensive retaliation can be spun to the "free world", has now been adopted against the entire Muslim world now, and all the insolvent Western countries are praying they get attacked just so the media spin will coalesce the sheep around the "developed" democracies in an all out "retaliatory" assault, which among other things, liberates tens of millions of barrel of oil equivalents, even as it spreads democracy and unlimited credit cards.

Naturally, just as in the case of Nakoula Basseley Nakoula video, where the US government promptly washed its hands but not before condemning the response, so here too, the French administration has promptly bashed the cartoon. Of course, it is just this "freedom" that the satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo had, that the Muslim world supposedly "hates us for." Needless to say, the damage has already been done and the second major provocation against the Muslim world by the west, with a mass response that will be no surprise to anyone, has been launched. One of these days the desired reaction to the endless battery of provocations will finally take place.

From Reuters:

The French government, which had urged the magazine not to print the images, said it was temporarily shutting down premises including embassies and schools in 20 countries on Friday, when protests sometimes break out after Muslim prayers.


Riot police were deployed to protect the Paris offices of satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo after it hit the news stands with a cover showing an Orthodox Jew pushing the turbaned figure of Mohammad in a wheelchair.


On the inside pages, several caricatures of the Prophet showed him naked. One, entitled "Mohammad: a star is born", depicted a bearded figure crouching over to display his buttocks and genitals.


Initial reaction from Muslim countries was critical.


"Of course it will anger people further. It will raise tensions that were already dangerously high," said Sheikh Nabil Rahim, a leading Salafist cleric in Lebanon.


"We will try to keep things managed and peaceful, but these things easily get out of hand. I fear there could more targeting of foreigners, and this is why I wish they would not persist with these provocations."


In Egypt, Essam Erian, acting head of the powerful Muslim Brotherhood's Freedom and Justice Party, told Reuters: "We reject and condemn the French cartoons that dishonor the Prophet and we condemn any action that defames the sacred according to people's beliefs."



Charlie Hebdo has a long reputation for being provocative. Its Paris offices were firebombed last November after it published a mocking caricature of Mohammad, and Charbonnier has been under police guard ever since.


Speaking outside his offices in an eastern neighborhood with many residents of North African origin, Charbonnier said he had not received any threats over the latest cartoons. In a message on its Twitter account, Charlie Hebdo said its website had been hacked, but referred readers to a blog it also uses.


The French Muslim Council, the main body representing Muslims in France, accused Charlie Hebdo of firing up anti-Muslim sentiment at a sensitive time.


"The CFCM is profoundly worried by this irresponsible act, which in such a fraught climate risks further exacerbating tensions and sparking damaging reactions," it said.

Well, as long as their hatred of our freedoms continues, all shall be well.

We have the right to free speech but they have tthe right to take offence. If Charlie Hebdo wants to piss people off because it has the right then let them, but let them take the consequences also, just like they would in a crowded bar.

I don't condone poking anyone in the eye re their beliefts, but the reaction to the poking tells you a great deal about the people being poked.

Were this reaction only because of the poking, I'd say knock it off.  But as it stands, these whackos have death sentences for any of their faith who decide to become Christian, etc.  You may convert to Islam, but never away.

I've long called Islam the Borg of religions.  Beware.

Is it worth world war to flaunt the “right” to deeply offend others or speak evil of something others consider good?

“There is no greater glory for man than the service of international peace.

“Peace is light; war is darkness. Peace is life; war is death. Peace is guidance; war is misguidance. Peace is conducive to illumination; war is destructive of light. Peace and amity are factors of existence; war is decomposition, or lack of existence.

“Wherever the banner of peace is raised it is conducive to the welfare of the world.”

Perhaps its Israeli ethnic Madeleine Albright, former U.S. Secretary of State, with her infamous statement that the “price” of 500,000 dead Iraqi children for U.S. sanctions on Iraq was worth it. And, of course, those Americans who supported her and the Iraqi Holocaust that killed an additional 1.44 million in U.S. "collateral damage." Wouldn't it be cheaper in lives for Americans just to buy their oil?

Life is more complex than just saying 'peace is light, war is death'

There are many in this world for whom your committment to peaceful protest at all costs is just their opportunity to subjugate you. They dont have any interest in negotiating with you. they dont give a fuck about the injustice of your enslavement. They are comfortable that your enslavement is the price for their comfort and social status.

Under such circumstances, forceful resistance may at certain times in history be the only path to justice.

The tragedy for all parties concerned, however, is that the aggreived are particularly susceptible to having their anger misdrected by the most lunatic repulsive ridiculous religious belief and practice available in the theosophical marketplace.

Judging from the down arrows it appears some don't really value freedom after all. Freedom/rights are a slippery slope folks you can personally find something offensive fine don't look at it but to attempt to take away the freedom from another will eventually cost you YOUR freedom as well only a Communist would advocate that.

Exactly. Try living with daily drone strikes, invasions, bombings, children dying from Leukemia caused by depleted uranium shells, wars, starvation, land annexed and all the other little joys that the "West" and Israel have visited upon them in the past 40+ years.

Then add in insult of their prophet. Also who says this isn't all a repeat of 1979 with western Intel agencies taking advantage of a chaotic situation for political objectives (October Surprise)? Its not like Western governments or Israel would use False Flags to meet political objectives at home and abroad right?

Really good article.

In comparison, there is no present day private company that has a whole country as its asset, let alone, the asset being the greatest superpower in the world.  The East India Company had a 250,000 strong private army in India. In 1835, East India Company issued its own Indian currency – effectively becoming the dejure state of the land. Around 200,000 strong of the East India Company private army were sepoys, local Hindu and Muslim soldiers. The rest of the 50,000 officers and soldiers were British.

In 1853, new “Enfield” rifles were introduced. To load the rifle, sepoys had to bite the cartridge open to release the powder. The cartridges were pre-greased with tallow. This was supposedly either derived from beef or lard (pork): offensive to the Hindus and Muslims respectively. Thus rumours started circulating that the British sought to destroy the religions of the Indian people. The narrative went as follows: as a way to ensure the destruction of religion, the East India Company is forcing the native soldiers to become unholy by biting the bullet. The hired guns of a mercenary army chartered by a private company were fine with murder of their brethren on the behest of faceless stock owners but not so comfortable with biting the bullet first.

This was an instance of the political entrepreneurs whipping up religious frenzy to gain specific objectives. A revolt spread throughout the expanse of India to reinstate the Indian aristocracy to power. From Bengal in the east to Punjab in the west, Hindus, Sikhs and Muslims started militant rebellion. Though the rebellion lasted for a good many years, it did not yield intended consequences. The rebellion leaders were all captured and killed, and the British Crown dismantled East India Company and began the 100 year direct government rule of India. Everyone who supported the rebellion and their communities were completely disenfranchised, starved of all opportunities and lived in insolated poverty for the next 50 years.

Those who downvoted you look to be friends of islamo-fanatic oppressing regimes that are coming after the Arabian spring. Some of us were just too naive to believe that arab world wanted democracy. Actually NO! They want the rule of shariah. The paedophillic Mohammed is their democracy. They are too blind to see that the world is living in the 21st century since about 12 years. They are still living in 6th century with their Mohammed.

Its not just Islam that is being perverted with these idiot cartoons and low budget movies, but Christianity is also being assualted with hogwash stories about Jesus having a wife referencing some UN created fake artifact

The truth is that this all paving the way to the Albert Pike/Freemason/UN wet dream of a nuclear third world war that can be blamed on the religions.  After WWIII, religions will be banned and a global soviet-style UN govt will be formed along with a demonic one world religion

Learn a bit about history. Do a bit of digging. See how things work BEHIND the scenes. When you do you will find many disparate and confusing phenomena suddenly merge to help form a cohesive big picture. This isn't to say everything can be explained by this, but quite a few major events of the past 12 years especially come nicely into focus when you see how things really work. There is no monolithic conspiracy, but there are many elites striving to gain greater control. I actually see a lot less cohesion than say 4 years ago. As the ship has begun sinking elite rats have started to turn on eachother. That said some things are pretty obviously a set up. This recent Arab Fall is one of them. See who benefits.

Why do you think there's only 1 group of elites?


You have the Arch Zionist neocons behind Romney, and the Moderate Zionists behind Obama.   The Moderate Zionists, Christian and Jewish both, are not going to put America or her security needs first, of course.


Basically, everywhere you look, there are rich and wealthy Jews and apparently, one can't point out the obvious, as if one has to "hate" a whole group of people as a group because one has sufficient intellect and honesty to look at Russia's oligarchs, or the people running the Fed or FDIC/CBO, or the Office of Special Plans - or read the histroy of the court jews, or the userers who came with William the Conquerer - to realize that the Jewish people's ethics, and its in the Talmud, is about putting the tribe first.


Jews in this country have hijacked media and banking and those of us who want to stop it but don't want to espouse general racism either may have to walk a line that's impossible to walk.


It could well be that Henry Ford wasn't simply lying or being paranoid when he spoke against "International Jewry" - there seem to be millions of Jewish organizations, and have had a focus and capital in Israel for decades.

We have Adelson versus Soros - both Jewish, and most movie studios run by Jews, and the legal profession and ivy league schools and presidencies with 30x the percentage ...


Right now America is fucked because powerful Jews, and powerless, stupid fuck southern Protestants who are used by them, have hijacked it.

No one wants to think of themselves as a scumbag racist - but at some point The Talmud's racialist ethics and world zionism and the ridiculous out of proportion power of Jews generally, but especially the chickenhawk neocons, has to be in the conversation to know what's going on.


International central banking is using war to create debt and establish "Greater Israel" as the future quasi-capital of a world/bank authority.  Admit that this might be true - and you will begin to awake.

Point being, it makes one wonder what these prophets would have said had they been given the foreknowledge of how many would be murdered as a result of their teaching, either because of it or using it as a justification.  Would they have continued to teach?  Become hermits?  Hung themselves out of despair?  Truth may be truth, but blood is reality.

The Japanese can hardly be the true followers of Buddhism or anything. They just adopt various rituals at their conveniences. The so-called religions for Japanese are:


Shinto --> religion (ritual) of birth

Christian --> religion (ritual) of marriage ceremonies

Buddhism -->  religion (ritual) of death

i'd posted few links about tibet in zh at here.

dalai lhama is partially guilty for his does not denounce the suicide actions of some hardcore fanatics who set themselves ablaze.

neither nowadays nor in the past, their so-called religious leaders just care less the interests of the ordinary folks.


"Westerners appear to have a willful blindness about Tibet - The Shangri-La syndrome. Everyone wants to believe in some mythological, romantic fantasy about Tibet. It doesn't exist and it never did, but the myth seems to grow daily. The Western media impose on our imagination an image of some fabled theocracy where a reincarnated god rules over a peaceful people spinning prayer wheels.

The facts are different. The region has been under China's governance for many centuries, but was largely self-managed up to the 1950s when Mao went in to clean it up. Before that, Tibet was a slave colony, what the Western press euphemistically refers to as a 'feudal system'. It was no such thing. Virtually all the population was owned by the Dalai and other lamas and worked their entire lives without pay. The highest monks often owned 35,000 to 40,000 slaves. The prettiest girls (and boys) were confiscated to the monasteries for sex. Life was brutal and harsh, corrupt and punctuated by civil wars - the last in 1950. Life expectancy was barely 30.

Education was only for the monks because educated peasants are dangerous and expensive. Industry was forbidden because wealth of the population brought independence from religion. Torture was rampant. For anyone who cares to look, the internet is full of photos of the torture rooms at the Potala Palace and all the instruments used for gouging eyes and cutting leg tendons. You can easily find it. It's all there. The Dalai Lama was responsible for managing all of this. For the world to have given him a Nobel Peace Prize was an obscenity."


yet, why anyone wonders if he/she does realize that dalai lhama has been involved with cia ops since his youth...

because allah is not. islam is an extension of catholism. just because a religion says it christian doesnt mean it actually is. most, close to all are a fake or twisted version. the seemingly "older" religions of the ancient greeks, or chinese or even mayans(ect.) are that of the fallen angel worship. the ones who left thier estate and came to infiltrate.

Yes, God has emotions and clearly says as much. he gets mad, even hates(esau or sin for example) but also loves and so on. God may be violent but its a righteous violence, i know what youre thinking. "how is that different than what islamists think? arent they killing to be righteous?" i can understand questions like this and where they come from. that is the subtlety and psychology of this all. everything seems close or a spin off of something, because it is but the 100% truth gets blurrred in the trappings of the world. those who infiltrate parrallel the truth and put a twist on it. i digress, it is different because of something we true christians have that a religion of lies and hate do not have and that is the forgiveness in Jesus. also nothign is hidden in the bible. Hosea 6;6, God doesnt want our burnt offerings what he truly wants is our love. the sacrifices were something important for testing to see if we would listen to him, follow instruction, even when it is tough. also in that time sacrifices were what people understood because of the fallen angel religions. for us to understand, the sacrifices were not for him but for us to be able to have a "visual".

as far as him being multiple entities, that was for us as well and our understanding. see how in samuel that the people wanted a man king like the rest of the people of the world. Father gives us everythign we wanted, we jsut dont realize it. at the time Father wanted to be our king as it was, him still in Heaven. people did not want that so he appointed a man king. then Jesus would come to be the man king of perfection, hence king of kings. the world rejected him.  he became the sacrifice to replace all other sacrifices of blood, he became the sabbath and so on. he is our rest among other things. its not hidden in the bible at all. all these things arent hidden. its peoples lazyness or wanting to lsiten to liars or soothsayers that keeps anything hidden. as for the Holy Spirit being a seperate entity it is not, it is the thing that ties the world of flesh to Heaven. it is just presented in a way that is easier for us to understand when we look at it objectively. Jesus even says if youve seen my face youve seen Father's face, we are one and so on. Jesus was the flesh king we always wanted, the Holy Spirit is the tie from flesh to the world in front of our eyes we cannot see or understand(specturms of light, waves,frequencies, we even only use 10-12% of our brain, that was for our benifit as well but a hwole other subject). none of this is hidden.

also hes never asked any of us to do anything for him that he has not done for us. he has sacrificed, protected, let us hurt ourlseves and others(freewill) on and on. imagine a parent, a good one, how they feel about thier kids or what they would do for the kids and what they expect from thier kids. its not exactly how God thinks im sure but it gives you an idea. he had ot let us make our mistakes, explore beyond him and so on. he tries to guide us and puts up with a lot. he expects a lot because he gives a lot as well. he made forgiveness as simple as he could bare, just ask upon true repentance(change yoru mind) and believe. i could go on for days and days. he doesnt say if they dont believe in me kill them. he says pray for them and things like he didnt come for those that were saved but for those who were not. on and on

These three religions do disagree on the nature of Jesus Christ, but they all agree that they pray to the God of Abraham.


In Matthew 6:9-13 Jesus says,

“This, then, is how you should pray:

Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from the evil one."

"Hopefully, I will get a chance to ask God"

God didn't create man, Man Created God. Consider that for many millenia, humans worshipped many thousands of different dieties. Many of the old beliefs lasted longer than the current major religions. Why didn't God before Jesus and Abraham set the record straight? How come God of Abraham today doesn't set the record straight in modern times, and tell the Hindus, the Buddists, that they are worshiping false deities. Why didn't God intervene during the Great Wars and the Great Plagues. For instance why was Buddist China spared the black deaths that culled a third or more of God of Abrahams followers? So you spared the Buddists infidels and slaughtered your own followers? Why is that the many of the stories about the prophets originated from the older religions. For example, Moses and Jesus have nearly identical stories as earlier summarian, Eygptian, and Greece dieties and prophets. "Horus and Jesus", "Moses and Sargon", etc.

 The only reason why the current major religions exists is because they favored out over older or less enthusiastic religions. Religions are very much like social and politcal beliefs. Consider how many people died for thier faith in Communism? 100 Million? 250 Million? For much of the 20th Century, Communism was the fastest spreading beliefs as it swooped up in Eastern Europe, and most of Asia, Much of South America and parts of Africa. Now Socialism, the precursor to Communism is spreading to North America. People have faith in gov't entitlments and central planning, more than any other major religion.

I will make my own prophet prediction. This comment will receive more than a dozen dings! Go head and ding, its easier than thinking and it validate my point.

You seem to have a lot of questions along the lines of, "Why did, or didn't, God do such and such?"  That is good.  I had the same questions, and still do today.  However, through reading scripture, prayer, and personal experiences I have had all those questions answered. 

How seriously have you looked for the answers?

Yeah, people are always quoting the fucking Koran, in an attempt to get us to read it, too.








(Edit:  Be sure to answer a question WITH a question, typical dogmatic 'hypno-control' method)


I looked for the answers. I FOUND them.  In places like Ezekiel where he describes the inside of a spaceship.  Or Genesis, where taking a rib (to perform genetic fusion of the 22a gene strand) is spoken of.  Or in Enoch (oh, sorry, that had too much 'REAL' information in it, and was therefore banned from the bible, in case people became aware of the fraud) where he, too describes The Watchers (mankind's TRUE Gods, the alien race that created us).

How much have YOU read the bible?  Open your eyes, the scales fall off, and you'll see it FOR WHAT IT REALLY IS!

Thanks ZeroAvatar for the brief ref about the Book of ENOCH :-)


Just reading some at:



* The Book of Jubilees: This obscure Hebrew text offers an answer to a question that has vexed Christians for centuries -- if Adam and Eve only had sons, and if no other humans existed, who gave birth to humanity? This text reveals that Adam and Eve had nine children and that Cain's younger sister Awan became his wife. The idea that humanity was born of incest would have been radical -- and heretical.

* The Book of Enoch: This scripture reads like a modern day action film, telling of fallen angels, bloodthirsty giants, an earth that had become home to an increasingly flawed humanity and a divine judgment to be rendered though denied a place in most Western Bibles; it has been used for centuries by Ethiopian Christians. Large portions of this book were found as part of the Dead Sea Scrolls.



Some of the banned books are:

The Book of Enoch, The Book of Jubilees, The Protovangelion of James, The Gospel of Nicodemus, The Infancy Gospel of Thomas, The Gospel of Mary, The Apocalypse of Peter, and The Life of Adam and Eve, etc.

The Bible was compiled by Constantine the Great in the 4th century.

Congratulations on brain washing yourself!

sorry to doubling my earlier post

Belief is a state of not knowing. You only believe in what you don't know.
Think about it on things in your daily life. Armani is better than Hugo Boss, Porsche is better than Ferrari, Christianity is better than Islam and on and on.
For logic sake, please first acquire the knowledge in order to come up with a knowledge-based opinion and not a MSM brain washed belief argument.

Completely *not* true of Mohammed.  He was the only one of the above prophets who led troops into battle and taught his troops to kill those who didn't "believe".   Islam was "spread by the sword" from day one.   A little history:   Mecca, holiest of Islamic cities was the site of one of their greatest *military* conquests / slaughters.   Mohammed signed a *peace treaty* (called a hudna) with the city-state of Mecca which belonged to the Qu'raysh tribe who worshipped the moon.  When the Qu'raysh let down their guard (thinking they had just signed a peace treaty),  Mohammed rolled into town and killed all the men.   The women were spoils of war.

That's Islam.

And that's also why whenever a peace treaty gets signed in the Islamic world, it is reported as a "hudna":  A Koranic reference which means, "this ain't no peace treaty, whitey" to everyone except gullible Western leaders.

And the cube that they all walk circles around?   Yeah... that was the moon temple of the Qu'raysh tribe.  They converted it like they always do, to a mosque.  (Ever wonder why there are no other cubes in Islam?  Because they didn't make it.)

Every year for centuries before the conquest of Mecca, right around what's now Ramadan -- the Qu'raysh made a pilgrimage to Mecca.   Mohammed kept the tradition, but just made sure everyone worshipped him instead.   Conquer.  Assimilate.  Lather.  Rinse.  Repeat.
