Radical Islamic Website Calls Out South Park
Revolutionmuslim.com has said that despite a post warning SOUTH PARK creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone of a possible violent retaliation for portraying Prophet Mohammed in a bear suit that the site is only supporting the protest of the series not violence, according to CNN.
In the original post, the writer warned Parker and Stone that the episode might wind them up in the same place as Dutch filmmaker Theo van Gogh, who was stabbed to death by an Islamic extremist after making a short film condemning the treatment of Islamic women.
Abu Talhah al Amrikee, who wrote the post, said it was simply a warning of what could happen and that it was not a threat. He said his organization is putting together a letter writing campaign and demonstrations to voice their concerns about the episode.
That said the site includes photos of Parker, Stone, van Gogh and others with audio of radical preacher Anwar al-Awlaki calling for the assassination of anyone who "defames" the Prophet Mohammed. Al-Awlaki is now in hiding Yemen. Al Amrikee defends the sermon as a reminder to Muslims that defaming Mohammed is an offense punishable by death.
