Re: France: Charlie Hebdo Office shootings

According to this newspaper here (all in German) this Pakistan Politician Ghulam Ahmed Bilour has offered $200,000 to anyone who kills the owner of Charlie Hebdo

Difficult to know what should be the response to this? Pakistan belongs to Interpol so maybe some legal means like France requesting Bilour be extradited?

My first reaction was also "has he the money?". On the other hand there are many corrupt politicians who have plenty of money

I suppose if he did not pay he would receive a "freebie"!

About "Oh, anyone got the owners address?" I believe it was bought by the Rothschild family around last Christmas.

I wonder what Charlie Hebdo is even worth?

Maybe they could donate it to some ISIS boss and have his own buddies do him in. Might be cheaper than the West having to do it themselves.

Seems the Paris prosecutor's office has finally opened a preliminary investigation because of direct incitement to terrorism and death threats, quote here.

Re: France: Charlie Hebdo Office shootings

I hope the killers are somewhere they can look down and see the results of their actions. !!

The number of Charlie subscribers has increased from 8,000 to 200,000!!
The print run has been increased fifty times!!

They managed to change this minor and little known publication into a major magazine.

Re: France: Charlie Hebdo Office shootings

Islamic Human rights commission voted Charlie Hebdo as "Islamophobe of the year 2014".

Humor was feared by tyrants.

"The French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo which was the target of a murderous attack in January won the prize here for its continual stoking of Islamophobic sentiment by caricaturing Muslims as terrorists and ridiculing their beliefs.

Charlie Hebdo’s repeated mocking of Muslims is part of a culture of hate that is intended to marginalise, further alienate and further endanger a community that has effectively been “otherised” in much the same way that Jews were in Nazi Germany."

Well, prior to the attack, didn't it repeatedly run anti-muslim pages? The language comparing it to Jews in Nazi Germany is too far, i agree.

Share the actual paragraph, instead of just a sensationalized snippet.

If humour is feared by tyrants, why are you posting this obviously humerous, tongue-in-cheek article as though it is terrible and something to be despised? Pot, Kettle....

The French police recently arrested four more people in connection with this topic, including a policewoman.

The weekly Charlie print run now seems to have steadied at 1.5 million compared to 50,000 before the attack which is around an increase of 30 times.

Islamic human rights commission... surely that is somewhat of a paradox...

Plenty of rights :
You have the right to remain silent.
You have the right to refrain from criticising religion.
You have the right to violent response if you feel offended.

Correction, voting was performed by members of the public.

The poll is held online by the Islamic Human Rights Commission every year with candidates nominated before being voted for by the general public

I stand corrected, thanks.

This fits with the BBC poll - "But 27% of the 1,000 Muslims polled by ComRes said they had some sympathy for the motives behind the Paris attacks"

Yup. You've never wondered why a conservative English Christian finds the constant insults hurled at Muslims and the things they consider holy utterly tiresome? This year it's them and theirs - maybe next year it'll be me and mine.

Shooting people for being obnoxious is out of order, but that doesn't mean the rest of us should suddenly decide that being obnoxious was actually a good thing after all.

It could have been Geert Wilders, Ayaan Hirsi Ali or Pegida. They demonstrate palpable and formidable Islamophobia. but cartoonist? Maybe we should ban people from looking at cartoons after a certain age.

Re: France: Charlie Hebdo Office shootings

The best way to understand Charlie Hebdo is to consider them as activists for atheism. No wonder any given religion consider the newspaper anti-them. But being ANTIsomething does not mean somethingPHOBE. I don't expect the something-people to understand.
