A German tabloid that reprinted cartoons from the French satirical paper Charlie Hebdo lampooning the Prophet Mohammed was targeted in a firebombing on Sunday, police said.

With security services on high alert after a killing spree in Paris by Islamic extremists, police in the northern German port city of Hamburg said no one was injured in the blaze at the headquarters of the regional daily Hamburger Morgenpost, which caused only slight damage.

"Rocks and then a burning object were thrown through the window," a police spokesman told AFP. "Two rooms on lower floors were damaged but the fire was put out quickly."

The regional tabloid daily, the Hamburger Morgenpost, had splashed three Charlie Hebdo cartoons on its front page after the massacre at the Paris publication, running the headline "This much freedom must be possible!"

No one was hurt in the attack, which police said occurred at about 0120 GMT. Two people were detained, while state security has opened an investigation, police said.

They can huff, and they can puff - but they'll never blow the house down.

Ordinary Muslims (with our support) will defeat organised extemism eventually. Extremists act out because they know it's a war they can't win. It really is as simple as that. They're outnumbered thousands to one.

(fruit juice for the Muslims, of course.

I am thankful no one was hurt.

However I think that common sense should prevail and those cartoons should not be reprinted right now. There are copycats, crazies, and radicals out in society in every country who will act up as in Germany.

Ok you and I can agree to disagree on this one. I think right now it is not a good time to reprint those cartoons...because some people will attack those publications that do...for safety reasons I don't think it is a good idea.

When is a 'good' time?

Next week?

Next month?

Next year?

I think they should be printed daily. Screw the crazies. Let them try to firebomb every publication on the planet.

Idiots.


Muhammad would find these people laughable, then he would pray for them.

Admittedly, I'm not so humble, I laugh at them for sure...

Haven't prayed a single prayer for them yet.

Tbh, I don't like the cartoons - but I don't think anyone should be afraid of printing them. Well, outside Muslim countries, of course - I can't imagine it going down well in Pakistan, for instance.

I don't like the cartoons because they offend the sensibilities of many ordinary Muslim people. None of those folk are going to kill or hurt anyone over it, but it would upset them - which is something I'd want to avoid.

The difference between those people and extremists is that one simply looks away, whilst the other acts. If you live in a Western country, you should be willing to look away at times to help protect our values. Of course, the very vast majority understand and respect that.

This said, being willing to look away to help protect our values also means that we should sometimes be willing to help protect theirs.

So sending the message killing people who do what you dislike is a successful and worthwhile strategy to the terrorists is what you want instead?

I do too but caving into terrorists is not the way to achieve that peace, it simply encourages more of the same to get what they want.

The people did not die because of those cartoons or because of freedom of the press.

They died because some nuts allowed themselves to develop a distorted perception of reality, which they personalized, took to an extreme, and on which they then acted violently.

Yes...I do understand what you are saying...and you do make a very good point...in these kind of situations I worry a lot...and like I said I just want people to be safe and I am hoping and praying that more and more people will step up and work for peace.

Thank you for your response...I wanted to understand better what you are saying and you've explained it to me.

Like I have mentioned in some of my other replies...I just want people to be safe and more and more people to step up and work towards peace on this planet.
