Atleast for this diagreeable guy, it certainly looks like that freedom doesnt extend to him.

I dont like it, but dont see what amounts to incitement in what he has said.
It's like the freedom of speech, but with an asterisk at the end.

I am Charlie*

*But only as long as all the other Charlies agree with me.

Indeed, joking about killing people is not at all a hate crime...

Turkey blocking web sites showing the Charlie cover, look here.

I guess they forgot they joined the march.

What the heck, have had a boring day at work, so let me pour some oil on the little fires you seem to like starting.

"You mean like the model of freedom that Israel is for the entire Middle East?"

Yeah, I'm not sure if you know how this game works. You might not think Israel is particularly free, but to think it isn't a country mile freer than all it's fascist neighbours you'd have to be neck deep in mescaline.

Am not going to wade into the "game" as you put it, and you don't seem to know what I think, Newbie Wonder.

What I do however think is, you need to get a clue about irony, and yes, satire.

Edit: "How dare you say that Israel is only a mile ahead. Its actually 1.98567653 miles ahead!"

Not sure what you mean by that, but I certainly haven't been quick to jump on the "I am Charlie" train.

This is, apparently (and ironically), the new blasphemy.

Although I can't understand it - seriously, what's your point? You're saying media defames Arab leaders and doesn't have to apologise or what?

No it isn't because you imply a comparison between the UK and France, two totally different cultures on the topic Freedom of speech.

Charlie Hebdo is VERY critical to the state of Israel and colony policy, especially of Netanyahu. No Jew ever threatened the newspaper.

Charlie Hebdo and frankly the whole of France don't give a fyck about when some Brits or Danes feel the need to apologize.

Charlie Hebdo had this (in French) on its front cover, was accused of anti-semitism, and never apologized.

Fair warning, it can be shocking for some.
