Quoting Aesma (Reply 89):
Now that I'm home watching on big screens I'm realizing I misplaced the magazine address, it is (was) actually much closer than I thought to where I've lived in Paris as a student, it's all of 150 meters away !   

And I was in the exact street the other day looking for a parking spot. My uncle lives there.

Indeed, I was suprised to see this had happened right near where I used to live as well, I must have walked past their offices dozens of times. Just crazy. Paix à leurs âmes.

Charlie Hebdo has long been pushing boundaries of what some consider appropriate and clearly have made themselves targets. As media reports indicate there have been many threats for many years even including bombing of its offices prior in 2011.

It wouldn't surprise me in the slightest that the perpetrators are French-born and with a French passport.

It doesn't make them French and that's the problem. Same as the 7/7 bombers, born and educated in the UK but with no allegiance to where they come from, just their religion. That's what people fail to understand with these people they live with us but they are not part of us.

I don't know about France, but in the U.S, freedom of expression is not absolute including the media.

Speech, gestures, writing, displays or conduct that may incite violence, disparages, prejudice against a group can be determined to be what is considered "hate speech".

While media is free to do its business, there needs to be some form of self censorship to avoid situations that can be inflammatory.

From what the U.S. media is reporting, it seems Charlie Hebdo has long been on an anti-Islam crusade and purposely sought to create controversy and stoke fire.

I'm pretty much on the extreme left. Will tolerate and try to understand a lot. But here is where my understanding stops.

If it is okay to kill journalists in the countries of their origins that is fine with me - their castle, their rules. But they are living in our castle now - our rules apply. Don't like them? No problem. I am willing to chip in for one way tickets to their country of origins.

As far as today's shooters go - I can find only one word for them ... scum.

I am certain that the majority of Muslims in Europe are not of the same mindset. But at this point in time we need their help in weeding out those that have the same mindset.

What follows is the reaction of several French Twitter users that I presume would be better served by moving to their respective countries. As offered before - if they lack funds to do so - willing to help.

I personally - even as an atheist - think it is inappropriate to make fun of other people's beliefs, including those Mohammed caricatures. But the appropriate response to such publications is to yell/write/post that you think they are morons that should rot in hell. Not pulling out AK-47s and shoot them with a couple of cops on top. Nothing - NOTHING - can justify to kill over some sketches published in a stupid rag.

The only "crusade" at Charlie Hebdo is to poke fun at ALL authority - Muslims, yes, and Jews and the Pope and French politicians - anyone is grist to their mill.

It is self evident that Muslims do not get the concepts of pluralism, openness, and tolerance. That is why the countries of the Middle East are so awful in the first place. It is long past due to stop all immigration from the Middle East to western Europe and North America. It's time to start sending these people back to their crappy dictatorships/monarchies.

My prayers to the victims and their families. This is just awful to see. And the stories of just outright executing a cop on the street who was injured and had his hands up is appalling. Today, I stand in support of good Frenchmen who condemn this and take a stand to fight for their homeland, their culture and their nation.

I hope we don't run the risk of anesthetizing ourselves to such barbaric acts of violence since they happen with such frequency.

Quoting EA CO AS (Reply 54):
France is one of the only western nations that doesn't mollycoddle and acquiesce to the desires of immigrants from Muslim countries. It's a shame more western nations don't embrace their approach.

Europe’s 50 countries have roughly 38M Muslims, 5% of total population. Germany has more than 4M Muslims, as many as North/South American combined (strangely, that means Germany has more Muslims than Lebanon does) and puts it in top 10 of nations with largest number of muslims living there as minorities. France has a slightly higher percentage of Muslims than Germany, but estimated slightly fewer Muslims overall, although the French data comes from general population surveys which aren’t always reliable.

France had higher birth rates than most of Europe, but has now fallen below the ‘replacement’ level of 2 children per. Muslim birth rates are much higher. This makes for a demographic timebomb.

Total intolerance of any dissenting opinion or lifestyle, yet they demand conformance and accommodation to theirs.

I hope France uses this tragedy as a means to secure themselves against such terrorists.

OK how about British media? BBC says the magazine had a long history of controversy with Islamic community.

Does that make the British media right? Usually they're not in a lot of cases. Do you believe all US media?

Yes they seem to have made a point of digging in deeper and deeper into the topic. But I suppose they are looking for attention, so they more they get, more they push the envelope.

Stop saying cr*p !!!! Did you ever read their magazine ?!!

Quoting mercure1 (Reply 125):
Political correctness is not part of their modus operandi.

Definitely, you never read Charlie Hebdo.
And what the point of being a satirical magazine without being satirical ?!

Do you want the definition of a "satire" ?

Here we go : "Satire is a genre of literature, and sometimes graphic and performing arts, in which vices, follies, abuses, and shortcomings are held up to ridicule, ideally with the intent of shaming individuals, corporations, government or society itself, into improvement. Although satire is usually meant to be humorous, its greater purpose is often constructive social criticism, using wit as a weapon and as a tool to draw attention to both particular and wider issues in society."

Yes they do, and unfortunately their actions have reactions. Very terrible ones this time.

    You blame the victims ? Are you one of the Twitter users that damirc shows a few post above ?!
Shocking.

If memory serves we even tried full scale conventional warfare for quite a bit now and the only measurable response is a drastic increase in terrorists and terror strikes. .. so, what are you suggesting as a stronger reaction? Nukes?

And especially which response that is in line with our understanding of human rights and freedoms....

I am not talking about taking measures outside our countries. They can all blow each other to pieces in their countries and their Islamic domain for all I care. As soon as they step foot in a western democratic country and/or decide to become citizens they should forget all about what was acceptable and what was not in the countries or culture that they came from. Looking at some of the tweets of those "French" people a few posts up, I fail to see why they would be considered "French" at all. They are French by birth but have zero respect for anything that France and the republic stand for. They should be encouraged to move out and seek citizenship in a country that caters to their barbaric and undemocratic beliefs, not having a whole country bending backwards so that their whatever beliefs are not used in satire. There are many prosperous Muslim countries out there for them to go to.

As for my understanding of human rights and freedoms, I find it funny that people who have no respect for either want to be treated under their blanket.

Yes because the Islamic community is the one who is always offended and screams threats all the time. Looking at their covers, I see various groups being used as subjects, yet only one is causing a "controversy". Ever crossed your mind that the issue lies with that specific group?

In their entire radical existence since 632 A.D., they've contributed nothing, created nothing, destroyed almost everything they've touched, have a proven historical and factual track record of never being able to coexist in any other culture.

Talk about ignorance and intolerance.

Islamic world with ages of great civilizations has brought mankind many things from sciences to medicine, to arts, to food, engineering etc.

Guys, if we follow your logics, then this will happen




This cartoon will appear in the New Yorker.

What is at stake here is the freedom of speech. And as matter of fact, the cartoons by Charlie Hebdo have shocked many more christians than muslims in France. I have never bought a single issue of this magazine and I am not a fan of their provocative stands but I am concerned that you somehow justify today's attacks.

French media report that the 3 terrorists have been identified. Aged between 18 and 34. The two older ones are brothers. Two apartments in the suburbs of Paris were searched this evening

Seems the police is on a lead already.
