For Mohammed Cartoon Spread, Orthodox Jew Pushes Crippled Muslim Man on French Magazine Cover
The French magazine “Charlie Hebdo” which has been the victim of a firebomb attack for publishing images of the Islamic prophet Muhammad deemed by certain Muslims as offensive, published new pictures of the prophet on Wednesday, while the magazine’s cover features a Muslim man being pushed in a wheelchair by an Orthodox Jew
“You must not mock us,” both the wheelchair bound man and his Orthodox Jewish counterpart say, under a title that reads “Untouchables 2”, which is an imaginary sequel to a recent French film.
The newly published pictures come as violence in parts of the Muslim world has erupted in what some have said is a response to the production of an amateur film depicting the prophet Muhammad in an unflattering light, with deadly attacks in Libya, Egypt, and most recently, in Afghanistan.
Inside the most recent edition of Charlie Hebdo, Muhammad is featured in multiple pictures, including “nude caricatures”, according to Reuters.
