• German Paper That Reprinted ‘Charlie Hebdo’ Cartoons Firebombed

    No word officially yet if the paper’s office was attacked (aftermath shown above) because its editorial staff decided to publish cartoons from Charlie Hebdo, but considering the cartoons that were reprinted as a show of solidarity were ones mocking Islam, we’ll let you be the judge on possible motive.

    From the AFP:

    A German tabloid that paid tribute to those killed at Charlie Hebdo by reprinting cartoons from the French satirical paper mocking the Prophet Mohammed was firebombed Sunday, police said.

    With security services on high alert after a jihadist killing spree in Paris, police in the northern German port city of Hamburg said no one was at the headquarters of the regional daily Hamburger Morgenpost at the time of the attack, which caused only slight damage.

    Hamburg police said it was “too soon” to tell whether there was a connection between the Charlie Hebdo tribute and the firebombing, which would be the first attack against the cartoons since Wednesday’s massacre of 12 people at the French weekly.

    “Rocks and then a burning object were thrown through the window,” a police spokesman told AFP.

    “Two rooms on lower floors were damaged but the fire was put out quickly.”

    After last week’s terrorist killing spree, the Hamburger Morgenpost published the controversial cartoons under the banner “This much freedom must be possible!”


    Now who’s up for some of those Charlie Hebdo pics mocking Islam?
