The world is still reeling from the terrorist attack on Charlie Hebdo in Paris yesterday. The brave men and women who worked for that publication were not afraid to take on Muslims, and ended up paying the ultimate price for it.
Stephane “Charb” Charbonnier, the editor of Charlie Hebdo, had been warned that Muslims would probably retaliate if he printed images of Mohammad. Charbonnier, however, wasn’t backing down.
“I prefer to die standing than to live on my knees,” Charbonnier said two years ago, when asked why he continued to ignore Muslim threats against him.
In the end, he did just that when three cowardly Muslims gunned him and nine of his coworkers down on Wednesday. Bravo to Charbonnier for staying strong, and not letting threats stop him from exercising his freedom of speech.
