'South Park' Episode Put NYC Police on Alert , Published : Saturday, 24 Apr 2010, 11:50 AM EDT
FOX NEWS TAMPA ...This week's episode of "South Park" was no joking matter to the NYPD. Even before Comedy Central aired an episode that purported to feature the Prophet Muhammad in a bear suit, security was tightened at the cable network's New York City headquarters and satellite offices around Manhattan, the New York Post reported Saturday.
Tipped off by blogs that the episode would air, cops beefed up security to ward off any attacks on Comedy Central by aggrieved Islamic extremists who believe any depictions of the prophet are punishable by death.
On Wednesday,April 24th, Comedy Central aired a heavily censored version of the episode that showed it was actually Santa Claus -- not Muhammad -- in the bear suit.
So far, the only public threat came from a group of American converts to Islam who run the website Revolution Muslim.com.
"May Allah kill ["South Park" creators] Matt Stone and Trey Parker and burn them in Hell for all eternity. They insult our prophets Mohammed, Jesus, and Moses," wrote Zachary "Abu Talhah al-Amrike" Cheeser (the jackass who wrote the death threat, he needs to be in Jail).
Revolutionmuslim.com Leader Younes Abdullah Muhammad and Abu Talhah Al-Amrikee Need to be Arrested and Jailed, It is Not Free Speech to Issue Death Threats. FOX NEWS TAMPA FL Comedy Central Censors ‘South Park’, Comedy Central bleeped out all references to the Prophet Muhammad in Wednesday night’s episode of “South Park” after receiving a warning from a radical Muslim website revolutionmuslim.com .
