"Charlie Hebdo has gone soft on extremists"

Zineb El Rhazoui accused the weekly of bowing to Islamist extremists and no longer daring to draw the Prophet Mohammed.
Her parting shot comes on the eve of the second anniversary of the jihadist massacre that almost wiped out the controversial magazine's staff.
"Charlie Hebdo died on January 7", the day the gunmen attacked the magazine killing 12 people, El Rhazoui said in a damning interview with AFP.
She said she felt Charlie Hebdo now follows the editorial line the extremists had demanded "before the attack -- that Mohammed is no longer depicted".
El Rhazoui, 35, who is followed everywhere by police bodyguards and is known as the most protected woman in France, also questioned the magazine's "capacity to carry the torch of irreverence and absolute liberty".
"Freedom at any cost is what I loved about Charlie Hebdo, where I worked through great adversity," she added.

In all fairness, I am surprised they are even operating at all after what happened to them. Plus most of the staff that were taking this on are unavailable now for comment.

Obama didn't even show for the memorial. He sent Lurch and James Taylor.

The lefties can now honestly proclaim "je suis Charlie".
