A Muslim cartoonist’s reaction to the Charlie Hedbo massacre

As we think of the families who are suffering today, let’s not forget that good, moderate Muslims will also share a portion of the fallout for this latest terrorist attack.

It’s essential that we show our solidarity with the French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo, remaining steadfast in our support of freedom of expression in the wake of the massacre at its Paris offices this morning.

But as we think of the families who are suffering today, let’s not forget that good, moderate Muslims will also share a portion of the fallout for this latest terrorist attack. As xenophobic and fascist groups rise across Europe, decrying the (imaginary) “Islamization” of their respective counties, it’s no doubt that the Charlie Hebdo massacre will be used to fuel their propaganda.

In a recent cartoon, Muslim artist Khalid Albaih reminds us simply, yet powerfully, that this is not a war between civilizations, but a war with those who oppose civilization.

    OH! Poor religion-deluded Semites!

    News Flash – Religion comforts…AND Cripples!

    Real men seek the truth, not the comfortable lies of ancient schizophrenics and confidence men.

    There is something feeble and a little contemptible about a man who cannot face the perils of life without the help of comfortable myths. Almost inevitably some part of him is aware that they are myths and that he believes them only because they are comforting. But he dares not face this thought! Moreover, since he is aware, however dimly, that his opinions are not rational, he becomes furious when they are disputed.
    — Bertrand Russell, Human Society in Ethics and Politics (1954), quoted from James A Haught, “Breaking the Last Taboo” (1996)

    I have no sympathy for anyone who feels that their irrational acceptance of mythology is being threatened.

    Together with everything that seems to be developing throughout this area, many of your opinions are quite radical. On the other hand, I appologize, but I do not subscribe to your entire idea, all be it exciting none the less. It looks to us that your remarks are actually not totally justified and in reality you are generally yourself not really thoroughly convinced of your argument. In any event I did appreciate looking at it.
