Charlie Hebdo

Charlie Hebdo Republishes Cartoons That Prompted Deadly 2015 Attack


The decision by the French satirical magazine to recirculate cartoons about the Prophet Muhammad and Islam coincides with the start of a long-awaited trial for the attack that killed 11 of its staff.

PARIS — The French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo has republished the same cartoons about the Prophet Muhammad and Islam that prompted a deadly attack on the magazine in 2015, an act that will be seen by some as a commitment to free speech and by others as reckless provocation.

The publication coincides with the start on Wednesday of the long-awaited terrorism trial of people accused as accomplices in the attack — potentially cathartic for a nation that was deeply scarred by that act of brutality. The magazine posted the cartoons online on Tuesday and they will appear in print on Wednesday.

The trial and the reappearance of cartoons that are seen by many as offensive come as France is seeing protests against racism and calls for reflection on the treatment of minorities in its society, past and present.

The growing sensitivity to race, ethnicity and religion has clashed with France’s traditionally forceful commitment to freedom of expression and secularism. Many traditionalists have expressed concern that the country is yielding to American-style identity politics, long widely rejected in France.

Certainly the above didn't go down well in Turkey last time ....and with France Macron and Turkey already at loggerheads over a drilling ship in the Med.......

Re: Charlie Hebdo

Seems a strange thing to do. Don't poke a bear with a stick to see if it is still dangerous! There is a difference between not giving in to terrorists, and being openly insulting when you know you will offend. I hope nobody else dies because of a cartoon.

Totally agree with your comments Immac, how many innocents will lose their lives, or their loved ones over this selfish and pig headed decision?

Agree it's provocative to publish in an Islamic country where there's a religious state rather than democratic government but I dont see why a western country like France should feel they cannot publish them. Who is running France, is it a ME religious group or a democratically elected government?

Re: Charlie Hebdo

It`s not as if the cartoons are particularly funny. But, heyho, obviously the French find them so.

Re: Charlie Hebdo

It is a provocative act no matter where they are published and, to my mind, unjustified.

Re: Charlie Hebdo

The world has gone to the dogs.
The lines between what’s right and what’s wrong, what’s acceptable and what isn’t, have gone missing.
I reckon most of us on here had the best era, the future looks bloody grim.
