If we don’t laugh, the terrorists win

It’s not surprising Iyad Ameen Madani, Secretary General of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), wants to sue Charlie Hebdo for its front cover depiction of Mohammed.

After all, Madani comes from Saudi Arabia, the very country whose law enforcers recently dragged journalist Raif Badawi out for his first round of flogging, purportedly for insulting Islam.

In a case now referred by Saudi Arabia’s king to its supreme court, they administered only part of the punishment so Badawi could recover to feel the sting of the next installments afresh.
