PARIS - French President Jacques Chirac accused newspapers printing cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed of "provocation," after yet another French publication put the contentious caricatures on its pages. "Anything that can hurt the convictions of another, particularly religious convictions, must be avoided. Freedom of expression must be exercised in a spirit of responsibility," Chirac told his cabinet, according to a government spokesman on Wednesday.



Could you expect anything less after they let them burn down half of their country last fall!

So this is Cartoon Violence I just thought it was the Road Runner / Coyote thing all this time! Where the hell is Tipper Gore?



KABUL, Afghanistan - Police shot four protesters to death Wednesday to stop hundreds from marching on a southern U.S. military base, as Islamic organizations called for an end to deadly rioting across the Muslim world over drawings of the Prophet Muhammad.


"Islam says it's all right to demonstrate but not to resort to violence. This must stop," said senior cleric Mohammed Usman, a member of the Ulama Council — Afghanistan's top Islamic organization. "We condemn the cartoons but this does not justify violence. These rioters are defaming the name of Islam."

Not all of them are surrendering.

PARIS (Reuters) - A French satirical weekly reprinted cartoons of the Prophet Mohammad on Wednesday and published one of its own on its front page, further angering Muslim groups which say the caricatures are blasphemous.

French Muslim organizations tried to prevent Charlie Hebdo reprinting the 12 cartoons, which were first published by the Danish paper Jyllands-Posten, but a court rejected their suit on Tuesday on a technicality.

President Jacques Chirac condemned "overt provocations" which could enflame passions, but did not name Charlie Hebdo in his latest appeal for restraint in a dispute that has triggered violent protests across the Muslim world.

Charlie Hebdo carried the new cartoon on its front page, depicting the Prophet Mohammad burying his face in his hands and saying: "It's hard to be loved by fools".

Sales of the weekly were brisk in Paris. Inside pages showed the 12 cartoons that were first printed in Denmark and included an editorial explaining the decision to reprint them.

"When extremists extract concessions from democracies on points of principle, either by blackmail or terror, democracies do not have long left," Charlie Hebdo editor Philippe Val wrote.

This is just a blurb I found on drudge report.

They're not gonna. The US media doesn't want death threats against them so they're going to put their tail between their legs and dhimmify themselves... While they still exercise their freedom of speech to bash conservatives.

Chirac's govt outlawed Muslim headscarves in schools. Hey Jacques just because you condemn the cartoon doesnt mean that they dont want to kill you because you are not a muslim.

Will the libtards around the world realize that they are hated by the ROP as much as any right wing GWOT supporter? I doubt it.

Look what we all get to look forward to in the future,
Im not against religious freedoms, but some people are just inciting violence and using their religion as a shield all the while spreading hate.

It appears that Al Qaeda is not the biggest threat, but rather the rapidly expanding culture of militant / radical islam. Where even a cartoon can create chaos.

What is there left to do?, how can you hope to change a whole group of people when they use their faith as a cornerstone for spreading their hate and violence.

It looks more and more like things while spiral out of control much like the nazis did in the Past.

With all the freedoms they are granted and all of the ares which they already occupy their is little need for any military action on their part when they can grip whole countries in fear throught rioting and arson selected terroist bombings.

If the President of Iran were in France when he made his denial of the Holocaust statements he could be charged with a felony.

Maybe they need to pass a law (or include negative depictions of mohammed) like the Gaysott Law, where it is a criminal offense to express denial of the Holocaust. The US has no laws like this but they are fairly common in Europe.

A number of states - Austria, Belgium, Germany, France, Spain Israel, Lithuania and Switzerland have adopted legislation to make it a criminal offence to trivialize or deny the historical facts of the Holocaust or to justify National Socialist genocide. In Germany the offence created was that of disparaging the dignity of the dead. The French law known as the Gaysott Law was passed in 1990 following a wave of anti-Semitism and desecration of Jewish cemeteries with swastika paintings. It made it an offence to publicly question the existence eof the crimes tried at Nuremberg. This offence was included in a broad statute outlawing all racist anti-Semitic or xenophobic acts.

The concern that such laws seriously interfering with freedom of thought and opinion however repulsive those opinions are, has troubled civil libertarians and courts in Europe. Yet they have been upheld by courts. In 1987 the leader of the Front National the far right party in France, Jean Marie Le Pen was fined for declaring in a radio interview that the mass gassing of Jews was un point de detail. Revisionist historian Robert Faurisson in an interview with a French magazine criticised the Gaysott law as threatening freedom of expression but he went on to say that it was his personal conviction that the re were no homicidal gas chambers for the extermination of Jews in Nazi Concentration camps. On the basis of the later statement he was convicted and fined by the Paris Tribunal de Grande Instance in 1991. He then complained to the Human Rights Committee under the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, which we have been discussing, that his conviction was a violation of the guarantee of freedom of expression set out in Article 19 of the Covenant.

The Human Rights Committee up held the conviction as a justifiable interference with his Article 19 rights of free speech.13 It was persuaded by the French Government argument that holocaust denial is the main vehicle of anti-Semitism in France. The then US member on the Committee, Mr.Tom Burgenthal as a survivor of the concentration camps of Auschwitz and Sachsenhausen, recused himself.

The issue of Holocaust denial has also come before the European Court of Human Rights. There have been a number of challenges to holocaust denial laws before the European Court which have failed.14 The Court has made clear that laws criminalizing such speech are not protected under Article 10 of the European Convention.15 Thus to deny that the Holocaust occurred can lead in some countries in Europe to a criminal conviction and you will have no protection for your freedom of speech before the European Human Rights Court.
