Is anyone else at least slightly perplexed that a quintessentially Christian message of forgiveness is being conveyed on Charlie Hebdo’s new cover with reference to Islamist terrorism next to Islam’s prophet when the victims were mainly atheists and Jews? Western confusion, anyone?
There’s something very strange about the Charlie Hebdo cover featuring a picture of Mohammed. And no, it’s not the fact that they, in contrast with practically all of the British media, have had the courage to depict the person Muslims regard as their Prophet.
They’ve done that dozens of times. What is strange is the caption that accompanies it at the top.
