Clash of civilizations and religions being deliberately fomented? French mag publishes more caricatures of Mohammed

EDITOR's NOTE: It seems to me that tensions are being deliberately fomented between the Islamic world and the West by the release of the anti-Islam movie in the US and these anti-Islam cartoons in France. For a magazine to publish these articles at this time when the Muslim world is in such an uproar has to be deliberate! World War III was long ago planned to be a class of civilizations between the West and the Islamic world; it would appear that the stage is being set for just such an outcome. A 1000 years later, the Crusades still rage on!

A French satirical magazine has published controversial caricatures of the Prophet Mohammed on Wednesday as worldwide protests continue against a US film. France announced it would close embassies and schools in around 20 countries, fearing violence.
French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo published the caricatures on Wednesday, saying the illustrations would "shock those who will want to be shocked." Nude illustrations of Mohammed were included among the various caricatures in the release. Meanwhile, Russian news agency Interfax reported that Parisian kiosks sold out all copies of the magazine almost as soon as it hit the shelves. Charlie Hebdo’s website went down soon after the issue was published.
Security was beefed up and riot police deployed at the Magazine’s offices in anticipation of retaliatory protests. Paris also announced that it would be closing its embassies and schools in around 20 countries, fearing subsequent violence, according to AFP.
French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius announced special security measures “in all the countries where this could pose a problem.”
French politicians and religious leaders have called for calm at the decision to publish the images amidst violent worldwide Muslim protests against the American-made film “Innocence of Muslims” that have been raging since last week. Approximately 40 people have been killed in the wake of the violence across the globe. Any representation of Mohammed is considered insulting and blasphemous under Islamic law.
