Charlie Hebdo is a French weekly newspaper that features cartoons in a satrical manner in order to joke around with politics and current reports going on in the world. The newspaper itself has a very anti religious publication to it as well as a left wing anarchist motive. Due to the recent satirical publication of Charlie Hebdo France had to ban protests over prophet Muhammad cartoons as a sense of danger has picked up recently.
The cartoon cover picture depicting and a naked picture of Muhammad were both a cause of worry to France as recent anti-islam is spreading and attacks from the islamic community are beginning to pick up speed. On Friday France confirmed that it would allow no street protests to go on against the cartoons degrading Islam Prophet Mohammad articles that were published by the French magazine.
However France faces some difficulty and many fears from the Anti Islam publications recently because they have a very large globalizing islamic community growing. In fact fears of a more prevalent Islamic community in France unite nearly all major French parties in fear of attacks. Today France is seeking to stick to its very strict laws regarding state secularism as conflict with a radicalized and fundamentalist global Islam arise.
On September 19 edition of Charlie Hebdo the cover that was released was with a cartoon depiction of the prophet Muhammad pushed in a wheelchair by a rabbi. While the prophet Muhammad was being pushed above his head are speech balloons that read must not laugh. The French satirical newspaper did this because of the current world chaos that errupted in the muslim community over a amateur YouTube Video called Innocence of Muslims that was released depiction the Prophet as an idiot. The headquarters of the magazine has being receiving lots of hate from the muslim community for their cartoon cover and riots in France have started breaking out.
Moreover in 2011 the newspaper was a victim to a firebombing incident in November at their headquarters in Paris due to a similar taunt they did towards Muhammad. This past friday saw many schools and embassies shut down in France due to a massive viral response to the cartoon and feer that the islamic community would retaliate in a drastic way.
The magazine was first published around 1969 up until 1981 when it folded. It was later resurrected in 1992 and as of 2012. The current editor of Charlie Hebdo is Stephane Charbonnier also known as Charb. The magazine is published every Wednesday with special editions issued on an unscheduled basis.
