South Park creators get veiled threats from radical Muslims.

A radical Muslim website has declared a recent South Park episode "filth" and called for the faithful to help eliminate it.  The website warns the show's creators, Matt Stone and Trey Parker, that they may find themselves killed as the consequences of insulting Mohammed  by portraying him in a bear suit.  The creators did it not only because they were asked not to show Mohammed realistically by the network to avoid controversy, but to satirize the media reluctance to offend Muslims with realistic portrayals.  The website was offended anyway, and along with the warning, posted a photo of the dead body of Dutch film maker Theo van Gogh, implying that fate for Stone and Parker.
