Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
That's exactly the framing which I strongly dispute. I don't particularly like O's framing, but I am trying to point out, over and over, that Charlie Hebdo is not anti-Muslim. It had a couple of decades of credentials as an anti-clerical (i.e. in the French context, anti-Catholic) rag before the question of Islam in France even became fashionable. Since its foundation in the 1960s, it has always been anarcho-leftist, more recently with strong ecologist tendencies. It doesn't have a well-defined political position, it depends on the contributors.

If you and Katrin want to have an anti-Muslim debate, please don't do it in response to my posts. I will not be shouted down by presumed (and entirely imaginary) association with racists, fascists or whatever.
