Commenting on the what was published by the French magazine “Charlie Hebdo”, Hezbollah issued the following statement:
“Hezbollah condemns the new and serious insult carried out by the “Charlie Hebdo” magazine in its Wednesday morning edition, which included cartoons insulting Prophet Mohammed [peace be upon him and his family], Islam, religions and the sanctities of humanity in general.
This act is certainly unacceptable and it cannot be justified under any consideration that the ones behind this heinous act might be hiding behind.
Moreover, what the French magazine has committed once again forms a major provocation against the sentiments of more than 1.5 billion Muslims, and against all the followers of monotheistic religions and those who are keen on dialogue and unifying common values
This act directly contributes to shoring up terrorism, extremism and extremists.”
