Threats against the creators of South Park ? Jihad?

The radical Islamic Web site Revolutionmuslim.com is going after the creators of the TV cartoon series “South Park” after an episode last week included an image of the Prophet Mohammed in disguise.
Revolutionmuslim.com, based in New York, was the subject of a CNN investigation last year for its radical rhetoric supporting “jihad” against the West and praising al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden. Its organizers insist they act within the law and seek to protect Islam.
On Sunday, Revolutionmuslim.com posted an entry that included a warning to South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone that they risk violent retribution – after the 200th episode last week included a satirical discussion about whether an image of the prophet could be shown. In the end, he is portrayed disguised in a bear suit.

  • “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 creators of South Park have made fun of so many different people and religions and yet you don't see any of them up in arms about it.

  • South Park is one of the worst shows out there... my son refused to let anyone know about his jewish heritage because kids are so cruel and have seen South Park and hate jews . You let someone know your gay these same kids will be cruel because of South Park's influence. I have seen bits and pieces and refuse to watch it.. its NOT a kids show yet parents let their kids watch it... sad.
    The show has NO respect for people of race, color or religion.

  • It's a cartoon and just because I may not like the cartoon does not mean I would ever make those kinds of veiled threats against the makers of the cartoon.That threat is really pushing it they might as well of said flat out what their intent was.SP has mocked Jesus more then once and much more offensively then this episode that these muslims got so upset by yet Christians didn't react like this.

    Why not. The media bases the entire tea party on the actions of a few radicals/plants.
