    Ok I found the source and it has been denied. Apparently lots of contradictory information from French sources.

    No one was killed for a cartoon. They we killed because they stood up to bullies.

    They said I will take the risk and live my life they I believe I should. I will not bow down to bullies. I will not let them win. They we smart and also had protection in the form of police protection. Sadly it was not enough.
    They bullies won this round. It up to us if they win the the next battle or the over all war by us giving into their demands or stand up for what we believe so we can win this horrid war against the bullies.

    They didn't only criticise Islam- they were a satirical magazine- they criticised EVERYONE with their cartoons- they are a medium for sharp social commentary through humour. They did not die senselessly for a mere cartoon.

    These cartoons, maybe they were offensive to some people. I get that. They weren't inciting anyone though, and their satire was directed at everyone and anyone. Whatever your position, they were operating within the law and they certainly didn't bring this upon themselves- this is nothing but victim blaming and I'm surprised people are saying there was a threat so they should have stopped what they were doing.

    The minute we give in to threats that curtail our legal freedoms, we let the bad guys into the winners circle.


    **** that.
