Offense against Noble Prophet Continues, Spanish Magazine Published Insulting Cartoon
In a new attack against the Noble Prophet Mohammad (PBUH), Spanish political satire magazine El Jueves has published a cartoon of the Great Prophet on its cover.
El Jueves' latest edition, which hit Spanish newsstands on Wednesday, shows several Muslims in a police lineup under the title "But...does anyone know what Mohammad looks like?"
The magazine declined to comment to Reuters on Thursday on the motives for the publication.
But in comments to the Huffington Post, editor Mayte Quilez said it was a decision to take a humorous position on a contentious issue.
"If you can't depict Mohammad, how do you know it is him in the cartoons?" she asked.
Last week, French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo published cartoons of the Prophet Mohammad soon after protests against a film made in the United States provoked a torrent of anti-American unrest in Egypt, Libya and other countries.
The Spanish Embassy on Wednesday sent a message to its citizens in Egypt asking for caution in the event of any backlash from the El Jueves cartoon but has not said whether it will step up security in other Arab countries.
"We're still analyzing what steps to take," a foreign ministry source said.
