When it comes to Islam, we all know how sensitive its followers are to any depiction of their prophet. That fact was not lost on the creators of South Park, Matt Stone and Trey Parker, who featured Mohammed in one of their cartoons.

However, obviously aware of the Muslim sensitivities, Parker and Stone didn't depict Mohammed. They implied his presence by keeping him inside a U-haul while wearing a bear suit so that no one could see him.

News of the threats to Matt Stone and Trey Parker seems to be going mainstream. Via the BBC:
Islamists have warned the creators of TV show South Park they could face violent retribution for depicting the Prophet Muhammad in a bear suit.

A posting on the website of the US-based group, Revolution Muslim, told Matt Stone and Trey Parker they would "probably wind up like Theo Van Gogh".
Predictably, the video has been pulled but here is an interview with Ayaan Hirsi Ali on CNN about the controversy.
