Update: Western Media Begins Censoring Charlie Cartoons In Reports; Video of Attack

UK's Telegraph is now censoring images of the non-prophet in reportage of this story. This is their way of insulting the murdered journalists, and paying tribute to their religious-cultist killers.

At Long War Journal, video of the attackers shooting up the street and (Content Warning) executing a cop.

The attackers got into that car and then fled, abandoning the car later in the Rue de Meaux, which is up in Paris' northeast corner. I don't know Paris very well but I know there are Muslim neighborhoods basically nearby there, and then, going out further to the northeast, are the various "zones sensibles," the bad banlieus you see a lot of unrest and arsons in, out to the north and east, in Clichy, Saint Dennis, etc.

It's wonderful that we have Christiana Amanapour to explain things to us. On CNN, she has declared Charlie's cartoons to be "provocative" and "insulting to Islam."

(Incidentally, "Hebdo" is a contraction of hebdomadaire, which just means "weekly." So "Hebdo" is not the most important part of the magazine's title; in English, you'd say "Charlie Weekly." But you wouldn't just call it "Weekly" when you were shorthanding it; you'd say "Charlie.")

And This Begins, Too:


Yes, those are the first people my thoughts go to. Certainly not those murdered, nor the shattered families and orphaned children left behind.
