BILLINGSGATE POST - Al-Qaeda announced Wednesday it will close its embassy in France in fear of retaliation for the painting of a mustache on French first lady, Valerie Trierweiler, by Muslim artist Hakeem Hussien Obama, a distant relative of Barack Hussein Obama.
Earlier this morning, France announced it will close 20 embassies across the Muslim world after French weekly Charlie Hebdo published provocative cartoons of the Prophet Mohammad naked. Major protests by both Muslims and French citizens mutually sick and tired of seeing their religious symbols desecrated by fractious infidels are expected to make diplomatic gestures between the French and Al-Qaeda next to impossible.
Both of the illustrations, which show the Prophet Mohammad naked and the La Premiere Dame's snarly mug mustached, are thought to be incendiary, especially after the USA made film fueled deadly unrest among Muslim communities around the world this past week.
Even though the French government condemned the decision to publish these cartoons, freedom of expression is respected in this liberal country. However, Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius declared that desecrating the image of the French first lady is verboten.
Representations of Allah or Mohammad are considered blasphamous to Muslims. Likewise, depicting highly respected French first ladies as hirsute bimbos is considered Francophobic by the majority of vitally concerned French non-entities.
With calls already circulating on social networks for declarations of war between Al-Qaeda and France, any additional provocations by either party could further exacerbate this unrest.
