It was reported Saturday that a French Muslim has been arrested for calling for the decapitation of the editor of Charlie Hebdo, a satirical weekly publication, which posted a cartoon of Mohammad.
Now that's extremism.
Mohammad is the Islam prophet who's followers are credited with Middle East violence this week due to an anti-Islam film "Innocence of Muslims."
Yet while President Obama said the film was responsible for the violent death of the U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other officials in Libya, others in the White House administration were saying it was a terrorist attack by al-Qaeda, who claimed responsibility.
The man in France arrested for attempting to incite violence on French soil allegedly posted these words about the editor he sought to see attacked, "The essential thing is not to let him live in peace," the Australian News reported.
An incitement to commit murder probe has been instigated by French Police after they learned of the potential threat. And French Interior Minister Manuel Valls has made it clear there will be no sanctioned demonstrations against the anti-Islam film this weekend.
Thank goodness for that, since too much violence already exists in the Middle East as it is right now.
