I mean, can any of their Muslim cartoons get as offensive as
These people mocked everything. I don't even trust those articles on the sacking of their employee considering said articles are aired by whom? Oh, right, progressive propaganda outlets that have been all to happy with floating the insinuation that the deaths were provoked. Certainly not NPR (which is still liberal, but with far higher standards) or The Economist. Anything from Salon or Kos? On the ignore list it goes.
The point you are not getting is the relative power and privilege of different groups in French society. Catholics have been the dominant religious and social group in France for well over a thousand years. While the rights of the church have surely been curtailed in the last century, there is no political party aiming to deport Catholics, certainly not one that got over 6 million votes in the last presidential election. Their traditional dress isn't legislated against. They do not occupy the lowest socio-economic groups, and do not suffer daily racism. All of this applies to Muslims in France. The rather crude images of Charlie Hebdo have a sightly different meaning when applied to a group well established in power than one one composed of poor, politically powerless migrants who are the enemy du jour and blamed for many problems in society. Especially when freedom is speech is applied so... unevenly, as EMTP linked to above.
And you know what, that doesn't mean it's ok to kill cartoonists.
Re CorruptUser comments on ISIS - you do realise that 99% of the people ISIS kill are muslims right? And as for protesting against them, how about fighting and defeating them, like muslims are actually doing right now:http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article ... dance.html
Don't rush to write back, I know you will be out protesting decade long CIA torture of innocents, drone strikes against weddings in Pakistan and Afghanistan, and an unprovoked war of aggression against Iraq which killed 100,000 etc etc.. Oh, what's that? You aren't responsible for those actions by western powers and they don't define you, even though they were carried out by democratically elected (and then re-elected) governments and absolutely no repercussions have been visited on the perpetrators, whereas the actions of a handful of lunatics in Paris somehow define all 1.5 billion muslims?? Ok gotcha thanks for clearing that up.
EDIT: The correct Islamic response to insults to Muhammed is in the video below by a muslim who actually know what he is talking about and brings evidence to support his views(less than 5 minutes in duration):https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I6zuKbBlmRo
EDIT2: The same guy talking about Charlie Hebdo attacks, in case you wondered where the reasoned responses were. 30 mins, first 1:20 is in arabic. Well worth a watch to contrast what you see on the news.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SzP8e9b_OT8
