That didn’t take long. We just posted on this Monday, and by the time Charlie Hebdo published his latest edition edited by Mahomet, Muslims firebombed the office and destroyed it.

The newspaper’s website also appeared to have been hacked on Wednesday, with its regular home page replaced with a photo of the Grand Mosque in Makkah and a message reading: “No god but Allah”.French officials were quick to denounce the attack and offer support to the newspaper. “Freedom of the press is a sacred freedom in our country and everything must be done to preserve it,” Interior Minister Claude Gueant told AFP. “This is why, whether we like Charlie Hebdo or not, every French person must this morning feel solidarity with a newspaper that, through its existence and the way it operates, expresses freedom of the press.”
Hebdo’s real editor blames it on a small minority of extremists and not a representation of a majority of Muslims – see video interview here. Anyone want to wager that a majority of Muslims in France would say the magazine deserved what it got and that blaspheming Islam should be a crime?
