'Revolution Muslim' group threatens South Park creators, sparks controversy

Jan 05, 2010 | In Arab News and Politics In Arab Entertainment News | No Comments

South Park, the long-running and perennially offensive cartoon series created by Matt Stone and Trey Parker, seems to have sparked the ire of a 20-year-old Muslim American who blogged against the show on a website titled Revolution Muslim.

The writer, whose handle is Abu Talha al-Amrikee, wrote "We have to warn Matt [Stone] and Trey [Parker] that what they are doing is stupid and they will probably wind up like Theo van Gogh for airing this show. This is not a threat, but a warning of the reality of what will likely happen to them."

Abu Talha al-Amrikee, whose real name is A. Chesser, was apparently incensed over South Park's satirical depiction of Muhammed in a recent episode. Chesser has esposed violent ideas in the past, and is a proponent of Islamic radicalism.

While many Arab men and women might have been angered by the episode of the comedy series that goaded Chesser into action, his widely publicized remarks have been somewhat embarrassing to the Arab-American world.

TheAge.com reports that few people are taking his extremist remarks or threats seriously.
