mohammed-south-park-censorship

A US Muslim group has incited a storm of controversy by issuing what is widely considered a death threat against the creators of popular satirical cartoon South Park for their inclusion of Mohammed in a recent episode.

In the 200th episode of South Park Islam’s prophet Mohammed appeared wearing a bear suit, as well as under the safety of an all encompassing black bar.

US-based Islamic group, “Revolution Muslim,” known for its support of jihad and al Qaeda, said in a statement on its website that the episode had “outright insulted” Mohammed, and then issued what can probably be construed as a weasel-worded death threat, mentioning a Dutch film maker murdered for daring to criticise Islam:

“We have to warn Matt and Trey that what they are doing is stupid, and they will probably wind up like Theo van Gogh for airing this show. This is not a threat, but a warning of the reality of what will likely happen to them.”

The site also played a sermon by a US born Muslim preacher and al Qaeda member whilst showing pictures of the South Park creators, in which Islamic scripture is used to justify the murder of critics:

“Harming Allah and his messenger is a reason to encourage Muslims to kill whoever does that.”

They also helpfully provided the addresses of the various companies involved in the show’s production. The site has since disappeared for reasons unknown.

Legal experts say the group is carefully wording support of terrorism to ensure it remains legally blameless.

Mohammed has appeared on South Park before without incident, as have most other religious figures worth lampooning, though that was before 9/11.

Since then networks have been reluctant to deal with criticism of Islam, say the creators of South Park: “Now, that’s the new normal. Like we lost. Something that was OK is now not OK.”

The actual reaction from outside the US appears to be to simply ignore the existence of South Park altogether – the show is apparently either insufficiently inflammatory or simply too hard a target compared to an obscure Danish cartoonist.

    I say Mat and Trey should make use their second constitutional right, in full force, and now its personal. American style.

    That means they should carry a few guns just in case the muslims try something funny.

    It's not the religion, it's the hypocrites in them

    Did they watch the episode? They were very respectful, in their own South Park way.

    so when they didnt show him, they got in trouble..

    and if they did showhim, they woulda still be in trouble..

    makes on wonder whatll happen if every iteration of "MUHAMAD" in the script was changed into "XENU" or someshit.

    Fanaticism is always wrong, we need to be able to separate BLIND FAITH with REAL FAITH, and also critics makes people better, we need to develop tolerance in other peoples culture so world peace could actually materialize

    Shouldn't you be loving the Muslims and joining their religion since they got the loli action going on?

    fuck muslims - period-dot-bingo.
    If you're a "moderate" muslim, take a look at your religion and try to defend it.
    The impetus is not on me to be understanding, it's on you to reform your religion or leave it.
    No moral relativism to Christianty since you could only look very stupid trying to find evidence (even of fakes claiming to be Christian) who have committed anything bordering on the atrocities of islam.

    "The religion of Peace" my ass.

    I am so tired of these knuckle-dragging cavemen and their threats and terrorist actions. I say we send them all to Allah via mushroom clouds. And I mean all of them, even the non-militants. As far as I am concerned they are just as much a part of the problem. They should be condemning these statements and actions.

    Kill'em all and let Allah sort them out.

    Hmm... all my comments were removed. That's fascinating.
    I expected better from the same sankaku complex that recognizes the irony in the South Park episode.
    Guess you guys are no better than the muslims - though I appreciate not being killed for it.

    Why is not in a death list Agnes Chan and the group "Equality now"?
    They say that Mohammed was a inmoral for marry with a children, they called him "an example for pedophiles" and then say that "Islam is the religion of suppression of women's rights".
    If I was islamic follower of the laws I would kill them.

    Do you insinuate that the anonymous posting is driven by fear? I guess when surrounded by aggressive hate mongers who will kill you for no reason at all you lose a bit of that fire - as you have done, obviously, refusing to post anything other than self-indulgent bullshit.

    this will happend when they are not believing in god..
    and still.. when something happend... they will blame god themselves..
    lol..
    its only matter of opinions..
    Is there any muslim here, who can say: "Mohammed and Allah are great, but if you think they are nothing but piece of rubish, you have the right to think so." Huh?
    if i were a muslim... i will say yes... y not...?
    even got some ppl agree the mohammed is a great leader..
    ppl opinions not made religions...
    its all god made..
    its changes nothing..
    its normal for ppl angry when their idol trolled..
    even ppl will get mad if the gf/bf being targeted..
    so its normal.. but the killing part is not..
    god gives ppl brain to think...
    if ppl practice any religion without thinking..
    well.. fanatics..
    and if u all want to talk about what type of source..
    (bible,quran) make sure to study it first..
    or else it will lead to confusions... for no brainer at least..
    and this is what are no brainer produced..,or use brain in incorrect way.. south park..
    they will not know what will happens...
    ppl will kill each other..only for this...maybe.. :)

    Islam is relatively a young religion. It's still in the angsty/bitchy teenage phase, much like Christianity was during the crusades. Give her a few hundred years, and she'll be fat, lazy, and complacent.

    The cursades which were a response to the Muslim invasion of Anatolia, you mean? So... which is younger? Was this before or after Caliph al-Hakim bi-Amr Allah ordered the destruction of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre? Do you have any idea what you're talking about or do you just like the word "crusades"?

    Since when did these people become a race? You can't be racist to muslims. Unless they are idiots and think they are an entire specific race. Will people stop claiming muslims are a race, you are not a race and thus no one can be racist against you.

    We can critisize you and we will do that. Muslims are the ones threatening to kill. Why should they be able to do that and I can't? Just because they have an imaginary friend who can't do anything for himself since he's not real?

    Allah/Jehovah/God/Whatever sounds quite useless if he can't kill the "blasphemers" himself. Oh wait, sorry, forgot he's not real :)

    Even though the Prophet was bashed on that episode of South Park for being untouchable figure in Relgion that can never be shown or be made fun of.It seem thats the Tray and Parker wanted you people to realize that It shows that the Prophet in all his glory can be made fun of even if you didn't like it.

    I agree. I hope the next RapeLay game will feature the Prophet.

    Muhammad thinks it hurts at first but he likes it...in the end.

    Muslims blame the Jews for this website and it's threat. It's the only article on here that isn't about how Jews did 9/11.

    I just watched second episode of "Rainbow" anime, and it made me quite angry. Little very cute girl there is sold to worst possible ugly, fat pervert. I have strong feelings of justice and something like that happening to little girl always enrages me. Maybe thats why I despise muslims and their sick law that justifies underage marriages, which they argument as tradition and religion.

    "US-based Islamic group, “Revolution Muslim,” known for its support of jihad and al Qaeda"
    Why are they free and not in jail or back in their holy land of mudhouses?

    Man these guys a like Stargate's Ashens; they talk of peace, come to your country, settle, reproduces like rabbits, and when the time will come, will strike.

    A happy world is a world without religion; and if not possible, at least without muslims.

    Primitive belief, primitive way of thinking, primitive customs. They do not belong to this age. I bet they came back with Ash to our time, when he screwed up again with the "clatu verata nictu" formula.

    I get so fucking tired of these muslim pricks - I agree with a previous poster WWIII will fuck them right up.

    We are playing Mr. nice guy while we occupy their territory and kill their dissidents despite what any liberal media outlet may feed you. If we were to conduct our war there as they would conduct a war on western soil then the streets of Afganistan and Iraq would host not a single living soul, just the bleached bones of a rabid nation that bit the hand of the wrong stranger.

    Further conflict at this point seems to be an absolute certainty.

    Amerika would be better off to nuke all that's muslim. Like i read before here, the 'old' generation wasn't that bad like the 'new' generation who threatens to kill you if you just say something about that 'pussy' Mohammed.

    But hey, the whole entire world is really fucked up. I'm glad i wont be living anymore in 100 years. How fucked will the world THEN be?
