The Prophet Mohammed on the cover of Charlie Hebdo's next issue

The front cover of the next issue of Charlie Hebdo just appeared online. The caricature of the prophet Mohammed appears once again on the cover of the weekly magazine. He is carrying a signboard with "Je suis Charlie" written on it followed by the message "Tout est pardonné" in English "All is forgiven". He also has a tear rolling down his cheek.

The drawings is by the cartoonist Luz. The magazine who has a circulation of 60,000 copies have decided to print 3 million for the new issue which will be available on wednesday.

I wish they had featured a jihadist instead of Mohammed. It was ISIS and Al-Qaeda who sent the terrorists who attacked them and French Muslims came out to the republican march to protest againt the barbaric acts of the jihadist brothers Saïd and Chérif Kouachi and Amedy Coulibaly.

I think Charlie Hebdo has not given up on its provocations and discriminations masked under humour. This is what is called poking the bear. Hoping this will tame the bear. I wish them luck. But why isn't the new cover dedicated to the victims ?
