Gates of Vienna News Feed 9/19/2012

Gates of Vienna News Feed 9/19/2012As promised, the French satire magazine Charlie Hebdo went ahead and published more Mohammed cartoons, some of them showing the prophet naked. Muslims around the world were outraged, and the magazine’s website was brought down by Muslim hackers. A Syrian organization took time out from the country’s civil war to file a complaint against Charlie Hebdo.

In other news, Islamic protests about the Mohammed movie spread to Sri Lanka, where demonstrators took to the streets of Colombo to demand that the makers of the movie be hanged.
