"Charlie Hebdo" is not a magazine I would care to have in my home; in addition to its "blasphemy against Allah," it has also ridiculed Christianity, Christians, and Jesus Christ Himself. I don't appreciate that, but I'm used to it - - - of course, I'm not a Mohammedan. Like any Christian, I disapprove of such things, but I don't feel compelled to slaughter those who create them.
As the killers went about their happy task, they were chanting "Allahu akbar" and "We have avenged the prophet!" Of course. That's the Muslim way. And, lest anyone think that this was an "isolated incident," the magazine's offices were firebombed in 2011, after printing a cartoon of the "prophet."
I am here reproducing some of the offending cartoons: not in an act of "solidarity" with the magazine (although I'm sorry for the loss of lives), but because ridicule of Mohammedanism is both a right and, to some degree, a responsibility. As far as I'm concerned, these images should be plastered on billboards throughout the Western world, simply to show the Muslims that we do not respect their "prophet," and we will not be intimidated. I don't find these cartoons particularly amusing, but I would not murder their creators.
"100 lashes if you don't die from laughter!"
"Mohammed overwhelmed by fundamentalists"
"Love is stronger than hate"
ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi
As I said, they're not particularly funny. But if you're a Muslim, you might get a few laughs out of this picture of one of the victims:
UPDATE (January 9): As the liberal press in the West continues, predictably, to censor the actual cartoons and downplay the "Muslim" aspect of the story, here's the latest cartoon from the actual survivors of the massacre:
UPDATE #2: Two people have been killed, in a Kosher supermarket in Paris, by members of the same Muslim cell that committed the magazine attacks, At this writing, five others are being held hostage. Police have released this picture of two more members of the cell, who have been linked romantically, and who are holding the hostages. Isn't it remarkable how Islam brings different people together in the service of hatred, murder, and madness? The "prophet" would be proud:
