The surviving staff members of the French magazine attacked by Islamist terrorists last week aren’t being cowed.
The upcoming week’s edition of the Charlie Hebdo satirical magazine will contain the kind of images of Muhammad that infuriated Muslims murdered 12 people for Wednesday in the magazine’s Paris offices, the Daily Mail reported.
“We will not give in. The spirit of ‘Je suis Charlie‘ means the right to blaspheme,” Charlie Hebdo attorney Richard Malka told France Info radio.
“We will not give in, otherwise all this won’t have meant anything. A Je Suis Charlie banner means you have the right to criticize my religion, because it’s not serious.
“We have never criticized a Jew because he’s a Jew, a Muslim because he’s a Muslim or a Christian because he’s a Christian.
“But you can say anything you like, the worst horrors – and we do – about Christianity, Judaism and Islam, because behind the nice slogans, that’s the reality of Charlie Hebdo.”
Malka doesn’t sound like the kind of guy most people would want to have a drink with, but he’s consistent.
The magazine is also boosting the press run of the issue – a guaranteed collector’s item – from a normal 60,000 to 1 million copies, the Daily Mail reported.
