After the 2015 massacre by MUSLIMS of 12 Charlie Hebdo artists and staffers, the satirical magazine stopped putting out covers that mocked Islam and its notorious paedophile prophet leader, Mohammed. But starting in 2016, they have returned to creating the covers that made them famous…but none with Mohammed, so far.
Breitbart Following the latest Muslim terrorist attack in Barcelona, the new issue of Cahrlie Hebdo has a cover showing a van running over pedestrians and the caption: “Islam is the religion of peace… eternal.”
The cover comes shortly after the terror attack in Barcelona which saw the death of 14 and over a hundred more injured after Muslim terrorists used a white rental van to plough into pedestrians. The magazine, which is set to hit French newsstands on Wednesday, is well-known in France and across the world for its pull-no-punches style.
The magazine has continued to push the limits of satire, but it has made several enemies due to its content, most notably in the radical Islamist scene. As a result, the headquarters of the publication was attacked by Islamist terrorists in January of 2015 in what became the first major Islamic State attack in the country.
The attack resulted in the deaths of 12 people including eight cartoonists. The police were later able to shoot the suspects who holed up in separate buildings and declared their allegiance to Islamic State and al Qaeda.
Whilst the general public expressed solidarity with the magazine using the hashtag #JeSuisCharlie, some staff were unhappy with editorial decisions after the attack. Zineb El Rhazoui announced he was quitting the magazine in January of this year claiming it had gone “too soft”, as it now refused to draw pictures of the Islamic prophet Mohammed.
Breitbart In 2016, Charlie Hebdo showed signs that it was back with its cover following the Muslim terrorist attacks in Brussels with a cover that showed a picture of a famous Belgian pop star/rapper named Stromae, with body parts scattered across a Belgian flag. The caption on the picture reads in French: “Papa, where are you?” — a reference to a song of the same name by the artist that went to number one on French music charts in 2013.
Additional text reads “here”, coming from the body parts as an allusion to the Brussels attacks in which high explosives were used in multiple locations killing at least 35 people and injuring 300.
The artist behind the cover was the legendary Laurent “Riss” Sourisseau who has drawn many of the most notorious covers of Charlie Hebdo, including the most famous one directly after the attacks on the paper in January of 2015. Pasamonik said of Riss:
The satirical French weekly publication, Charlie Hebdo, has come under fire for publishing a cartoon that suggests that Aylan Kurdi, a toddler who drowned off the coast of Turkey while attempting to flee war-torn Syria, would have grown up to sexually assault European women.
“What would little #AylanKurdi have grown up to be? Ass groper in Germany,” the cartoon reads.
Breitbart Police are investigating “written death threats” made against staff at the satirical French magazine Charlie Hebdo, after their latest edition mocked the Burkini ban on French Rivera beaches.
The intimidation, which includes a bomb threat, comes less than two years after Islamist terrorist gunned down 12 staff because they had published cartoons of Islamic prophet Muhammad. The magazine has refused to back down, publishing more images of Muhammed and their most recent front page which features a naked Muslim man and women running across a French beach.
