An Egyptian newspaper has launched a campaign against the obscene cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad published by the French magazine.
Al-Watan, published 13 cartoons on Monday under the slogan “Fight cartoons with cartoons”.
One shows a pair of glasses through which the burning World Trade Center is seen, with the caption: “Western glasses for the Islamic world”.
The cartoons included one showing a white man accusing an angry, bearded man of being a terrorist until he sees he is from Israel and offers him a flower instead.
Two images of Arab men appear side by side.
One is wearing a hat and jacket and has a small beard; the other has a turban on his head and is baring his teeth through a long beard, while carrying a bloodied knife.
A torch with the American flag for a handle is pointed at the image of the man with the knife.
