AMMAN − The Royal Hashemite Court issued today the following statement in response to the publication of an offensive cartoon of Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him) yesterday by the French magazine Charlie Hebdo:

“The continuation of publishing insulting cartoons that depict our Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him) offends the feelings of Muslim communities everywhere. It is a condemned act that is irresponsible and far from the essence of freedom of expression, which is founded on principles of responsibility and respect for religions. These persistent insults come at a time when we are most in need of wisdom, dialogue, openness and constructive efforts embodying respect, tolerance and shared values.”
