From the article :
Quote:"We will not back down, otherwise none of this has any meaning," Richard Malka told French radio. "If you hold the banner 'I am Charlie', that means you have the right to blaspheme, you have the right to criticise my religion."

je suis Charlie

RE: Je Suis Charlie
there have been many terror attacks over the last 10-15 years. While all are horrible, a few seem to really hit the world in a way the others didn't.

9/11
And this, Charlie Hebdo attack

They seem pivotal.

(I'm sure there are others, they are just slipping my memory)

Its like the world stops for a moment and the sane countries of the world stand up and then get ready to kick some ass. its like the check that final box, the straw that broke the camels back, or crossed a line that others while horrible, didnt.

Or is that just the view from my corner of the world?

I feel very similar to what you just described.

The analogy that comes to mind is the Chinese water torture or death by a thousand pin pricks - slow, constant aggravation that you try to ignore but then one day you just explode.

I'm curious to see what a anonymous does.

Je suis Charlie.

Thanks for kicking this off FC. Was going to do the same.

I wouldn't bother. As much as I applaud their gesture in this specific instance, they are not the force they claim to be.

Do not ask how I know as I will not share that information.

You could share it anonymously. Drinking Beverage
