Je Suis Charlie

"Je Suis Charlie" at top of Charlie Hebdo homepage

Charlie Hebdo homepage, announcing that the next issue will be published on Tuesday, January 14

Je suis Charlie (French for “I am Charlie”).

This post supports freedom of expression, generally, and more particularly Parisian satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo, which was the victim of a massacre by Islamist radicals on January 7, 2015.

Being a bit of a francophone and francophile (see Paris: What a Difference a Decade Makes), and having relatives in Paris, I feel it is especially important to join millions of people throughout the world proclaiming that we value freedom of speech and that we will not be intimidated by thugs.

This obscene violence was caused, amazingly, by mere cartoons.

Update January 13, 2015:

This will be the cover of tomorrow’s issue, Muhammad saying (in French) “All is forgiven”:

Charlie Hebdo January 14, 2015 cover - Muhammad holding "Je Suis Charlie" sign and saying, in French, "All is forgiven"
