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.

After watching the 200th episode, it's seems pretty obvious that the idea wasn't and isn't to show Mohammed. it seems much more like Matt and Trey are trying, in every way possible, to show how scared america has actually become of the Muslim world as well as poking fun of Mohammed. The idea of Mohammed being contained to a u haul or a bear suit, in my opinion, seems much more inflammatory than just showing his image outright.

Yes, I already know that. But that does not change a thing about the issue.
I don't know much about how Muslims love and worship Muhammad.

Would it have been better if they just had artist draw Mohammad? Or was the simple fact that they even brought up the prophet made the situation insensitive?
