Charlie Hebdo has been the victim of the Prophet’s Revenge for Years

In midday Paris at least 12 persons were reported  to have been slaughtered  in a brazen attack by three masked Jihadis armed with Kalashnikovs and an RPG. The dead includ  a French policeman and members of the courageous team at Charlie Hebdo, a satiric weekly  including the editor and at least three cartoonists. This marks the latest example of “revenge” for daring to criticize the Prophet and his message at  risk of life and limb. The perpetrators escaped  and a manhunt is now underway to apprehend them. It was clearly an Islamic terror attack. Some Metro stations and schools have been locked down. We are concerned that French Jewish communities be given protection by the Interior Ministry against similar reprisals. 

Charlie Hebdo’s Stephane Charbonnier, killed in today’s attack

There have prior attacks at Charlie Hebdo in 2007, 2011 and 2012 over offending satiric cartoons. However, today’s is by far the worst. It should not be lost on anyone that this is the latest in the string of armed retribution against those tolerating Muslim sensibilities in Eurabia. All while officialdom wrings it hands over protest rallies by Pegida in Germany, the renewal of prosecution against Geert Wilders in The Netherlands, Paul Weston in the UK  and the Swedish Democrats for criticizing mass Muslim immigration.  

In November  2011,  when Charlie Hebdo’s office was firebombed we posted  a number of Charlie Hebdo satirical covers, Shocking! “Charlie Hebdo” covers screams The Daily Beast … . When the 9/11/12 Benghazi attack occurred Charlie Hebdo  produced a cover attacking the alleged cheap internet video , Video of Charlie Hebdo Cartoons on “Innocence of Mohammed Film” in Translation

We commented in the November 2011 post:

Charlie Hebdo should be given a French Legion of Honor rosette as a cultural icon in la belle France and the EU. An EU now enforcing OIC blasphemy codes in a blatant attempt to silence free speech and criticism of a religion, Islam. We trust that Danish Cartoonist Kurt Westergaard and Swedish artist Lars Vilks were among the first to offer their support to their French colleagues. Charlie Hebdo is emblematic of Westergaard’s dictum: “free speech, USE IT.”

In our November  2011 post  on the firebombing attack on Charlie Hebdo’s editorial offices we  published these  ‘offending covers’  over the period  from  2001 to 2011:


         “Look No Hands”               “Mohammed Overwhelmed”           “Charlie Hebdo Must be Veiled”

               2001                                            2006                                                 2007



                                      “Wear the Burqa Inside”            “Sharia Hebdo” 

                                                      2010                                    2011
