Illustrators and cartoonists around the world are paying tribute to those killed in the terrible shooting that just occurred at the offices of Paris-based satirical magazine, Charlie Hebdo. 12 people were killed by the masked gunmen, including Charlie Hebdo’s editor and publisher Stéphane “Charb” Charbonnier, and three cartoonists Jean “Cabu” Cabut, Georges Wolinski, and Bernard Verlhac (known as “Tignous”).

Many artists and newspapers took to Twitter using the hashtag #charliehebdo and #jesuischarlie to respond to the killings:

    Salazare’s point of view

  • jassyonyae

    So sad that this happened. There was no point to this at all. So sad

  • Leonard P Coby

    I am a 65 year old man and I abhor all war…however, I am ready to fight and lay down my life if need be to preserve “The Four Freedoms” for all men and women. We must have freedom from fear, freedom from want, freedom of speech and freedom from fear. FDR had it right 73 years ago, we must never forget.

      Freedom from Islam!?

      • Leonard P Coby

        No freedom from terror. There are really very few Islamic people who are terrorists. There are also American terrorists, exemplified by the recent bombing of the NAACP building in Colorado, and the Oklahoma City bombing that killed almso 200 innocents, many of whom were children. There are Israeli and Palestinian terrorists, and the list could be endless. I am so sorry if you got the wrong impression from what I wrote..it was not intended to be hateful in any way!

    So What is the Western benefit to society with this?
    What is the moral lesson of this???

      Hi Moderator
      First, it is needed to understand the context and the references behind a cartoon. Left is from a famous movie.
      Second, all is not funny, I fully agree, and sometimes tastless jokes… But there were a lot against christian and jewish representatives !
      Finally, even tastless, even offensive (which is a question of point of view), you don’t kill people for that.

      • Moderator

        i fully understand you don’t kill…. but you are not allowed to deny what many have doubt about the holocaust but pictures like these are OK???

        Indeed the free speech “outrage” is so stereotypically
        hypocritical.
        There are several excellent threads about #JeSuisCharlie at
        http://mauricepinay.blogspot.c… .
        At the behest of their slavemasters, the Master Race banksters, the French have criminalized investigation into the received “history” of the HoloHoax—jail time for noticing that the “gas chamber” at Auschwitz was built by Soviet Judeo-Communists (Ehrenburg et al.) AFTER the war, jail time for noticing that the “gas chamber” has no cyanide residue, jail time for noticing that the “gas chamber” has a wooden door and a glass window, jail time for noticing that the “gas chamber” has no safe means of introducing or removing cyanide, jail time for noticing the “gas chamber” has no safe way of removing the alleged cyanide-contaminated “victims.” So much for free speech… and free thought.

        Yes,

        Jesus was perfectly correct in calling them hypocrites time and time
        again (Matthew 6:2, 5; 15:7; 22:18; 23:13, 14, 15, 23, 25, 27, 28, 29;
        Mark 7:6; Luke 13:15).

        if you support this as free speech you must also support the people who wish to deny the holocaust!
        You can not pick and choose free speech that is bias and with agenda!

  • Creative way to counter-act a great injustice
