JE SUIS CHARLIE

Two days ago, Jihadist gunmen stormed the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo   targeting the cartoonists whose drawings they found objectionable, butchering 12 people in all. Cartoonists from all over the world  responded with cartoons, the Eiffel Tower was dimmed in mourning and crowds gathered holding up placards saying, “Je Suis Charlie,” roughly translated as, “the hell with you.”

Charlie Hebdo  (Charlie for Charlie Brown and Hebdo for “weekly”) published outrageous cartoons such as the following:

Here are some cartoonists’ reactions to the latest massacre:

    Thanks for this post with the cartoons which aren’t being shown enough, or at all, in most of the mainstream media.

    Too sad for my usual snarky comment.
