Police in New York are investigating whether a car bomb in Times Square was targeted on the makers of South Park over a controversial depiction of the Prophet Muhammad.
TIMES SQUARE CAR BOMB NEAR VIACOM OFFICE THE OWNER OF COMEDY CENTRAL, REVOLUTIONMUSLIM.COM POSTED DEATH THREAT TO COMEDY CENTRAL CREATORS LAST WEEK.
The car bomb device, which failed to detonate, was left near the offices of Viacom, which owns the irreverent cartoon series.
Last month postings on the Islamic website revolutionmuslim.com by Zachary Chessar warned the creators of South Park - Matt Stone and Trey Parker - that they could face violent reprisals after an episode of the show featured Muhammad in a bear suit.
COMEDY CENTRAL, the only all-comedy network, currently is seen in more than 98 million homes nationwide. COMEDY CENTRAL is owned by, and is a registered trademark of, Comedy Partners, a wholly-owned division of VIACOM Inc.'s 1515 Broadway, New York, NY AT 45th STREET, (NYSE: VIA and VIA.B) MTV Networks.

A posting on the website of a US-based group called Revolution Muslim warned Stone and Parker that they would “probably wind up like Theo Van Gogh”, the Dutch film-maker who was murdered in 2004 by a Muslim angered by his film about Muslim women.
Images of the Prophet are strictly forbidden in Islam, and Comedy Central, which broadcasts South Park, has banned Stone and Parker from depicting Muhammad in the past. In 2006 the network stopped them from featuring Muhammad in an episode which followed worldwide protests over a caricature of the Prophet by a Danish cartoonist.
The license plates on the vehicle packed with explosives found in Times Square Saturday night have been traced to a Ford pickup parked at a Stratford Conn. junkyard. FBI agents were at Kramer's Used Auto Parts at 11 Old South Ave. in Stratford Conn. Sunday, apparently searching for evidence. The business appeared closed, and an FBI truck was parked on the street nearby. Kramer's Used auot Parts was a "Cash for Clunkers" depot known as; Disposal facility contact information: KRAMERS RECYCLING, 11 OLD SOUTH AVENUE, STRATFORD, CT, 06854 CRUSH / SHRED FACILITY.
The license plates were reportedly attached to, but didn't match the sport-utility vehicle that contained an "amateurish" but potentially powerful car bomb that apparently began to detonate Saturday in Times Square, but didn't explode, authorities said Sunday.
Investigators said they contacted the pickup's owner, who said he sold the truck to a auto-parts business. Representatives of Kramer's Used Auto Parks could not be reached for comment. Bridgeport police were stationed outside 59 Highland Ave. Sunday morning, which had been reported as the home of the owner of the Ford pickup. Police have not identified the owner.
Detectives are also understood to be investigating striking similarities between the New York bomb and two car bombs planted by Islamic terrorists outside the Tiger Tiger nightclub in London in 2007. In both cases, the devices comprised cylinders of propane gas and cans full of petrol intended to be ignited by electronic detonators. David Paterson, the Governor of New York, described the Times Square incident as an "act of terrorism." MORE FROM THIS SOURCE..................
