Mark Steyn: ‘The fact that Charlie Hebdo, for entirely understandable reasons, now prefers discreet evasions to the truth is deeply distressing’
Mark Steyn writes:
The editorial inside, by Riss, successor to the murdered Charb, is a little more focused, referring to “fanatiques abrutis par le Coran”, fanatics moronized by the Koran. But it blurs these fanatics with those “d’autres religions” who wanted the weekly to die because it likes to “rire du religieux” – laugh at religion. There may be a last devout Catholic in France who would like to see Charlie Hebdo go out of business, but it’s the adherents of only one religion who wished to see its cartoonists and writers dead.
