Satires of love and hate: from Jonah to Charlie Hebdo

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

ON THE SEVENTH of January 2015 the Paris office of the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo was stormed by extremists who executed nine people associated with the magazine, and three others who were caught in the crossfire. As the assailants left the premises they were heard to shout, 'we have avenged the Prophet Muhammad.' It is thereby assumed that the violent rampage had been carried out in response to blasphemous depictions of Muhammad in the magazine.
