Je Suis Charlie

The declaration Je Suis Charlie (I am Charlie) in defiant tribute to the victims of the Charlie Hebdo massacre has swept across western Europe and around the civilized world. Shown is Indian sand artist Sudarsan Pattnaik's sculpture Je Suis Charlie (9/1/15). Albert Uderzo has come out of retirement to pen two new Asterix cartoons in honour of the victims: Moi aussi je suis un Charlie (CLICK). Meanwhile Saudia Arabia is demonstrating where the killers' brutality and contempt for human life originated: Sharia Law. Yesterday Saudi blogger Raif Badawi, the co-founder of website Liberal Saudi Network, received the first 50 lashes of 1,000 lashes outside a mosque in the Red Sea city of Jeddah after Friday prayers. He will receive 50 lashes every week, until the 1,000 has been reached, for insulting Islam. He was also sentenced to 10 years in prison and a substantial fine (CLICK).
