Anti-Southpark Islamic Site Hacked

Reported at  Vladtepes' blog.

Revolution Muslim website hacked in retaliation for targeting South Park creators

From The National Post
The Muslim website, Revolution Muslim based in New York City, has been hacked in retaliation for the fact that the website targeted South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone over of two recent episodes that satirized the Prophet Muhammad. Currently, Revolution Muslim’s website is down.

The hack was first noticed Wednesday night and lasted for a brief period of time. According to, the hackers managed to redirect Revolution Muslim’s website to another website called Revolution Islam.  When a visitor went to Revolution Muslim’s website they were redirected to images of Prophet Muhammad with a bomb on his head and an older Muslim man kissing a young boy passionately.

Also on Wednesday night, the controversial images and audio relating to Prophet Muhammad were censored out by the television station that airs South Park — Comedy Central.
Revolution Muslim — before the hack — had a post up by one of the group’s members, Abu Talhah Al-Amrikee, which read:
We have to warn Matt and Trey 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.

It seems the legacy of freedom of speech on the internet is something you can't censor or "warn" away, even if the profit/political correctness driven television networks don't care so much for it.
