Radical Islam Site ‘Warns’ South Park Creators After Mohammad-Bear
April 21, 2010
(ChattahBox) – A website whose creators are based in New York City are being criticized once again after posting what they called a ‘warning’ to the creators of South Park for showing a depiction of Mohammad disguised as a bear in last week’s episode.
RevolutionMuslim.com has come under fire several times in the past, after posting praise for Osama bin Laden, calling for revolution and a Muslim established state, and supporting jihad against the West.
Despite this, they claim their website is peaceful and only calls for protest, such as in the most recent post.
“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,” the post said.
“This is not a threat, but a warning of the reality of what will likely happen to them.”
Theo Van Gogh was a filmmaker who made a short documentary about the oppression and abuse of Muslim women living in Europe with sheltered Islamic communities. He was stabbed to death by an extremist after months of death threats in 2004 in Amsterdam.
They say they are asking Muslims to protest only, and that accusations that they are promoting violence is ridiculous.
However, their site holds a sermon by U.S.-born Anwar al-Alwaki from his hiding place in Yemen, telling followers that they should kill anyone who depicts the Prophet Mohammad.
The website creators claim that they only have the sermon to remind Muslims of the seriousness of the offense, and that they are not supporting actual assassination.
Many people have pointed out since the post was put up that Mohammad has been depicted on the series before, with no recourse or comment.
The episode ‘Super Best Friends’, aired in 2001, showed Mohammad, as well as Krishna, Jesus Christ, Joseph Smith, Buddha, Moses, Lao Tzu, and the religiously insignificant Sea Man.
At the time of this writing, RevolutionMuslim.com is down, likely sue to traffic.
