The story sounds like the plot outline of a "South Park" episode, but it's playing out in reality. A New York City radical Islamic group, Revolution Muslim, posted a warning to "South Park" creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker on its Web site in response to last week's episode, which depicted the Prophet Muhammad as a character wearing a bear suit.

The post told the satirists that the episode would likely leave them in the same position as Dutch filmmaker Theo Van Gogh, who was shot to death while biking to work in Amsterdam in 2004. Van Gogh had made a short film critical of the treatment of women in Islamic society.

"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," Abu Talhah Al-Amrikee wrote in the post, according to The New York Times.


Quote:
In an interview with The Globe and Mail, Younes Abdullah Mohammed, one of Revolution Muslim's founders, said the blog was not calling for Stone's and Parker's killings outright.

"If it happens to them, they deserve it," Mohammed told The Globe and Mail, explaining that sharia law would allow the killings. " 'South Park' plays a role in the hedonistic, vice-based society that keeps America ignorant."

Last year, Mohammed told CNN that there was nothing wrong with the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

"I don't think it was wrong, I think it was justified," Mohammed said. "We're commanded to terrorize the disbelievers."

Shouldn't they feel disrespected if South Park didn't make fun of them? I mean come on, nothing is safe with that show and they is what makes it so successful.

The same could be said of Christian extremists and Jewish extremists (particularly those in Israel). Religious zeal does bad things to one's common sense.

Just what in the world is this knee-jerk equivocation about. Right off the bat and out of the blue, you just have to try to equivocate.

However, I don't see a large movement of Christian or Jewish "extremists" threating or actually killing comedians and satirists though. But, maybe you can point them out to me. I am not seeing "extreme" Christians blow themselves up. About the worst I am seeing is the murder of an abortion doctor about every 10 years.

Care to point out the equivocation?

Or, maybe you've been to Israel to know what is actually going on in a country that has scud missiles launched into it on a regular basis?

Ever heard of the following groups?

  • Army of God
  • The Lambs of Christ
  • Repent Amarillo
  • Hutaree
  • The Lord's Resistance Army
  • The English Defense League
  • SIOE (Stop the Islamification of Europe)

And of course, let's not forget the granddaddy of them all, the Ku Klux Klan.

I can go on.

This is only in the news because it involves Muslims. Believe me, there are lots of groups threatening
those stupid Sunday night Fox cartoons but the corporate media will protect Fox.

I seem to remember Jesus playing a role in South Park episodes. I don't remember, however, any publicity about a blog of people not saying but just saying the creators are on notice.

I'm all about religious tolerance but I don't tolerate people whose religion teaches them to threaten other people's lives.

I realize there are wackos in every sect. I also think that if you look at where those threats come from this is not an isolated event. There's something to be said about making good on your threats, too.

Then you should focus your disdain on those particular people, not make sweeping generalizations about a particular religion or its followers.

And all of those groups have murdered people on a mass scale? Wow, they flew planes into the Twin Towers! They murdered Israli athletes in Munich? They murder Dutch film-makers?

And the Klan???? Hey Wilton, how about who has been comitting the most murders since the invention of Color television? The Klan??? HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!

And funny how no one has mentioned Muslim or Islam in regards to the Times Square bomber, but a few weeks ago when the arrested those clowns in Michigan, the media couldn't wait to use the word CHRISTIAN in almost every sentence. In fact I thought "Christian militia" was one word, the way most media uttered it.

Naah, no double standard here! Move along folks nothing to see here!

Do you somehow feel threatened by what I wrote? Why are you being so defensive? I am merely pointing out that religious extremism, regardless of what faith is being touted, can lead people to do things that are unacceptable. For some reason, you and ZM seem to think that Christians should not be included in this classification, despite being shown evidence of Christian extremists doing unacceptable things.

Obviously, Muslim extremism has been the cause of one of the greatest tragedies we've seen in our lifetimes, and that should not be forgotten. But that does not mean that you should then forget the faults of your own religion, and nor should you begin making broad generalizations about members of a particular religion.

Christian "extremism" is not a function of christianity. Muslim extremism is a direct function of the jihad call of the religion and is found in Sharia and Surrey(?). Not every muslim follows those dictates, but unlike christianity of the bible and new testament, it most certainly does call for these actions as part of jihad.

My original post to you was to your instinctive, knee jerk reaction to equivocate in an instance that in no way is equivocal, either in content of the religion, or the sheer volume of actions anticipated.

My original disagreement with Az was with calling muslim jihadists as "knuckleheads". To me, a knucklehead swings a baseball bat at the sausage. A knucklehead throws a battery at your right fielder. Trying to kill infidels is way beyond knucklehead.

here's just one example of a Christian extremeist using voilence in the name of religion--

John Brown of the famous raid was a religious zealot who caring out God's wishes butchered a group of pro-slavery people in Nebraska including mutilazation of the bodies by he and his religious non-slavery followers. He was motivated by Christianity.

Really?? Perhaps by his twisted interpretation of Christianity. Nowhere in the Bible would his actions or any other "extremist violence" be deemed acceptable.

Excately. Not to mention about 150 years dated.

Gotta love the earnest pursuit of equivocation thought.

Yeah, we better duck ZM, I get the feeling Wilton's about to throw the ol' "The Muslims hate us because of the Crusades" historicaly specious argument our way.
