2012-09-19 22:16

Cairo - Sunni Islam's highest authority on Wednesday condemned a French weekly's publication of cartoons of a naked Prophet Muhammad, with the region still reeling from an anti-Islam film that sparked deadly protests.

Al-Azhar expressed "its and all Muslims' utmost rejection of the insistence of a French publication in printing caricatures offensive to Islam and its Prophet, the prophet of humanity," Grand Imam Ahmed al-Tayyeb said in a statement.

    If muslims are going to cry foul at every scratch caused to the religion...they havent seen anything yet, its just a tip of an ice-berg. They should ask christians how southpark, red bull and family guy cartoons depicts Jesus and we've managed to ignore it.

      Said...but those who have intolerance for specific religions are the same in mind and we are going to have them for the next coming million years...those cartoons and vids are meant to frustrate muslims by their creators, and im afraid some of you guys are doing just that. They should be condemned but how its done should leave their creators with less interest in repeating.

      She is speaking up about the innocent civilians ACCIDENTALLY killed in drone strikes, and rightly so. You're focusing on this, deleting the accidentally part, and completely overlooking the HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of innocent Muslims being killed and maimed by the unelected dictators and Jihadists in your midsts, about which you say and do NOTHING. The longer you live with blindfolds over your eyes, and mufflers clamped on the thinking and feeling part of your brain, the more innocent members of YOUR community will die at the hands of other members of YOUR community.

    @freak.frazer,your logic scares the hell out of me,let me see if ,the terrorist attacks eg 911 was allegedly done by AL QAIDA,and innocent people were ACCIDENTLY killed!!is it OK?

      9/11 was a deliberate attack on civilians with the intent to do as much damage as possible much like bombing mosques ,churches and markets, there is a massive difference . If you can't see that then your 'logic' is quite warped and your apologetics for death cults rather disingenuous and sinister.
