    French magazine strikes back

    Last week, the offices of French magazine Charlie Hebdo were firebombed after printing a controversial cartoon of the Muslim Prophet Muhammad with the headline, "100 lashes if you don't die of laughter!" Hebdo's website was also hacked and left with a message reading, "No God but Allah." Now, the satirical publication is back on the attack.

    This week's cover depicts an editor of Charlie Hebdo making out with Muhammad under a banner that reads, "Love is stronger than hate." Despite the fact that some have noted that the figure in the heated lip-lock with the Hebdo editor may just be a follower of Muhammad, it is doubtful that this will make much of a difference to critics within the Muslim community.

    An outpouring of support for the magazine has come from political parties and citizen groups.

    All I can say is both sides of this controversy need to get a grip. There are bigger issues to be taken care of before they tangle their horns on this issue.
    Hunger , sickness , illiteracy need to be eliminated first and it is such a big task that it will take many generations before human race could hold their head with pride and look at a peaceful , prosperous and healthy human race.
    Fools never disagree.

      ^ Preventing the Islamification of the society (by creating hatred against the religion and its followers using these tactics) = a peaceful, prosperous, healthy human race. Don't you know they're doing the world a huge favour? Such peace warriors, I tell ya.
