Hi.

I posted a thred earlier about the French Magazine Charlie Hebdo publishing cartoons of the Prophet Mohammad.

www.abovetopsecret.com...

I was curious about the magazine so I decided to check out the website before going to bed. I googled it and of course there was a link to the site but I'm unable to access it. My browser just times / errors out and says the page is not available.

Are you guys able to go to the site? Even if you aren't interested in the publication will you try maybe it's just my connection or computer but I think they are blocking the site.

Here's the link or you can look it up .......www.charliehebdo.fr...

traduction :

Mohammed overwhelmed by extremists

Mohammed : It's hard to be loved by dumb people.


That one is old, but if they go along those lines i doubt it will create any protests or riot. Well , it might ...

It's not just you! www.charliehebdo.fr... looks down from here.
Check another site?

www.downforeveryoneorjustme.com...

tells me it's down for everyone. DOS attack? Not quite the style of extremists who want their face in the media. Could be though. More likely some legal or political issue in the works, losing faith in common sense every day I am.

Add. Going to the IP address of the website, you get this:


Le site demandé est indisponible pour le moment.

Merci de réessayer dans quelques instants.

[The requested site is unavailable.

Thank you try again in a few moments.]

Holy smoke! That's just the cover? Even the film everyone's upset about didn't depict Mohammed's face. This is a real no-no. (And of course the insult doesn't help.) And, if there's more inside . . . I hate seeing people killed.

Last year when they did this one-



Their offices were ransacked and burned and their website was hacked.

At first thought, I thought they wouldn't do this again, but I guess it is really great publicity for them.
They probably got their site hacked again.

If they were really concerned about making a point of free speech and getting it out, they wouldn't announce it beforehand..... they'd just publish it. This is just a publicity stunt.
