El Jueves, Spanish magazine, features Muhammad cartoon on cover of new issue

After the inflammatory Muhammad video, Charles Hebdo’s insulting Muhammad cartoon and a German satire magazine photo, we can now add Spain to the growing list of “insults” to the Muslim religious founder.

El Jueves’ latest edition, which hit Spanish newsstands on Wednesday, shows several Muslims in a police lineup under the title “But…does anyone know what Mohammad looks like?”

Any depiction of the prophet is considered blasphemous by Muslims but the issue has also caused a debate in the West about censorship and freedom of speech.

The magazine declined to comment to Reuters on Thursday on the motives for the publication.

The Masress reports comments to the Huffington Post, editor Mayte Quilez said it was a decision to take a humorous position on a contentious issue.

“If you can’t depict Mohammad, how do you know it is him in the cartoons?” she asked.
