A week after its offices in Paris were firebombed in apparent retaliation over a stunt involving the Prophet Mohammed, the satirical French newspaper Charlie Hedbo fired back with a cartoon cover featuring one of the publication's male cartoonists kissing a bearded Muslim under the headline: "L'Amour plus fort que la haine." Translation: "Love: stronger than hate." A Molotov cocktail destroyed Charlie Hebdo's offices on Nov. 2, a day after the paper published a satirical announcement that the Prophet Mohammed would be the guest editor of its next issue.

If they keep this up, they’re going to have to give up the title “Surrender monkeys”!

Is it a newspaper or a magazine? If it is a magazine I think I would like to try and purchase an issue in support.

At least SOMEONE over there gets it.

The best offense is rificule (Alinsky Tactics).

They certainly work.

It appears to be a weekly, which I suppose would put it more in the “magazine” category. Definitely left-wing from what I gather, but as has already been pointed out you can’t say they don’t have balls. I’ll have to look for a copy the next time I’m in one of those megabookstores.

They could have published Muham’n’eggs with his 6 year old “wife” with the headline “Prophet wanted on sex crimes charges”...

Periodically the French show a real mean streak, sort of like they are trying to make up for lost time. The real international crack down on Islam just might start there.

Heh. Here is to you, Charles Martel and Hugues de Payens. May you have successors.

I don’t care what they are if they have the guts to stand up and not back down. :) I support that effort! And thanks for the info.

Here is the original cartoon from last week that resulted in the firebombing.

LOL, yeah. Muhammad as guest editor - genius! I wish I could read French because it looks like this magazine has some pretty funny stuff. To paraphrase an old saying - if you Muslims would lighten up and laugh at yourselves every now and again you might see what the rest of us find so funny.

It’s a weekly magazine. “Hebdo” means “weekly” in French. Kind if like Mad Magazine.
Bravo for Freedom of the Press!

Is Lexan available in France?

I hope their windows have been appropriately replaced and shutters added for when the offices are closed. Also a good alarm system.

Two men kissing in Muslimland is cause for a double-header celebration.
