French Mag Prints Muhammad Cartoons

We get that it’s satire, but now is really not the time. Weekly satirical Charlie Hebdo has published an issue mocking the Prophet Muhammad, prompting France to shutter its embassies and schools in 20 countries. The magazine’s cover depicts an Orthodox Jew pushing a wheelchair-bound man in a turban. Not bad? Well, inside, there are illustrations of the prophet naked. The French government says it will stop any protests planned for this weekend, as riots across the Arab world have slowed down. Meanwhile, a Hezbollah-organized protest in Lebanon saw chants calling the U.S. an "enemy of God."
