Charlie Hebdo posts cover commemorating first anniversary of terror attack on offices

French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo will mark a year since an attack on its offices with a cover featuring a bearded man representing God with a Kalashnikov slung over his shoulder, accompanied by the text: ?One year on: the assassin is still out there.?

Anyone putting odds on nothing like that happening this year?

From the “Let Me Get This Straight Department”: CH printed a special edition marking a year since two Islamic terrorists burst into Charlie Hebdo?s headquarters in Paris and mowed down 12 people including eight of the magazine?s employees in retaliation for its satirical depictions of the Muslim prophet Muhammad.

And used a cartoon of (the Christian) God on the cover.

Je Suis Charlie? Please. Not even Charlie is Charlie anymore and islamic terrorists know it.

“used a cartoon of (the Christian) God on the cover”

Actually, Muslims, Christians, and Jewish people all have the same supreme being under different (by language) names.

Terrorists are terrorists, trying to link Muslims with them is doing said terrorists’ bidding.

Mr. Reflex76: but only one of the three was shot dead in Paris today on THE anniversary of CH shouting “allah akbar”. When somebody shoots up a Paris cafe yelling “Jesus Saves” or “Mazel tov” get back to me.

A triangle with an eye in the middle is a symbol of Christianity? Well golly, you learn something new on this site every day.

That’s nice.

Terrorists are terrorists, trying to link Muslims with them is doing said terrorists? bidding.

BTW, one of the victims of the Charlie Hebdo attack was a police officer called to the scene; his religion is of no matter, presumably:

Murderous Muslims are definitely still Muslims just like murderous Christians are definitely still Christians, so the link is permanent, like it or not… It is simply reality.

Does acknowledging a simple truth help the terrorists? That is a curious sentiment…

Murderers are murderers, nothing more; no amount of pretending about “simple truth” will change that reality.

Linking groups of people to terrorism (including pretending said link is “permanent”) most certainly helps terrorists, effectively doing their bidding.

Yes, the Je Suis Charlie band of aftermath hypocrites was huge. Anyhow, here’s the front cover of The American Dissident, #29, which I sketched in memory of the brutally murdered cartoonists:

Vive la liberte de parole… et non pas les fascistes islamistes!!!
