Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The last time Charlie Hebdo published idolatry pictures, it was firebombed. That itself is justification enough to publish idolatry pictures again.

That's a strange logic. Charlie Hebdo needlessly but deliberately offended millions of people, including a few thousand nutcases, among whom predictably one or two did a violent act. So a full year later, Charlie Hebdo again needlessly but deliberately offended millions of people. How does that make sense as a reaction? They could have mocked the teachings a Salafi cleric motivating the attackers.

One whose delusions are out of fashion.

I get the logic. Their right to publish was challenged, including an arson. That is good reason to assert that right again and again until it is no longer challenged.

Not very subtle but quite understandable.
