Charlie Hebdo crosses the line

Many people rushing to express solidarity with Charlie Hebdo don't know what they're doing.

This is not a satirical magazine like Private Eye, whose cartoons are mostly gently mocking at the establishment. Have a look at a cartoon like the one of a naked Muslim woman with a bit of blue rag sticking out of her derriere. The caption reads: "Yes to the wearing of the burka - on the inside." I doubt if even Voltaire would have fought to defend this, or any of the other vicious and salacious anti-Muslim cartoons.
