    @5 Well let me help you. It completely supports your idea of ethnic cleansing of all Muslims from Europe. You should immediately support it and share it with all your friends, especially in Germany.

    Looks like Charlie Hebdo is going to break every circulation record it's ever held.

    What makes that image the Prophet Mohammed?
    Just looks like your average Arab to me.
    Is it just another case of people being determined to be offended so as to oppress others?

    The cover of this week's Charlie Hebdo (right) shows Mohammed shedding a tear and holding up a “Je suis Charlie” sign under the headline “Tout est pardonné” - all is forgiven. The illustration is unclear: Is Mohammed forgiving the secular leftie blasphemers? Or are the secular lefties forgiving Mohammed and his murderous believers? The Commentator devotes an editorial to the subject, and finds it “a strange cover” symbolic of “western confusion”. On the other hand, Paul Berman in The Tablet thinks “uncertainty lends majesty”. On the other other hand, over at Ace of Spades, they think Charlie's staff are mocking hashtag solidarity and “vomiting on all these people who suddenly say they are our friends”.

    When skilled persons who have never shied away from clarity produce a work whose meaning is unclear, then it is reasonable to assume the unclearness is itself the meaning.

    I don't understand the meaning(s) behind the cover either. Perhaps you have to be French? Or maybe I'm just dense lol...

    Well a clue is that Henri Roussel the guy who is in charge now a co founder has already fired at Charlie Hebdo as being reckless and silly, driving the whole crew to their deaths....

    He also blamed Philepee Val in the past of making the satire magazine into a Zionist Islamofobe tool. So it kind of shows where its coming from

    Quite cowardly, and if the crew was in danger they could have walked off at any time on Charlie. But choose to stay
