(Newser) – First a French satirical magazine publishes cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed, and now Spain is joining in. The cover of the latest issue of El Jueves shows a lineup of bearded, Middle-Eastern men, with the headline "But...does anyone know what Mohammed looks like?," reports the Huffington Post. Jueves' editor said that the cover did not really depict Mohammed but is "a parody of the situation we are experiencing." "If you can’t depict Muhammad, how do you know it is him in the cartoons?" she asks. Spain's foreign ministry warned its citizens in Egypt to be careful, but otherwise is monitoring the situation for now, notes Reuters. (Read more Spain stories.)
