What do you think?
Newsweek's controversial "Muslim Rage" cover was meant to
spark discussion on anti-American violence, but instead became a joke on
Twitter among Muslims and non-Muslims alike.
The magazine is taking criticism for the cover, which screams "MUSLIM RAGE" in all caps atop a photo of two wild-eyed, bearded men.

The new issue also leads with an article by the highly-polarizing Ayaan Hirsi Ali about the protests in the Middle East and elsewhere worldwide over a film produced in the US that mocks the Prophet Muhammad.
Magazine editors invited readers to discuss the cover using the hashtag #muslimrage, which has since been mocked on Twitter.
Here are some of the most memorable links and tweets in response:
