    Because the cartoons are humorous and people enjoy reading them.

    They publish cartoons about all kinds of races and religions, but nobody else decided to go and shoot a load of innocent people.

    We can't spend our lives living in fear because of one silly religion.
    just because you're not a fan of it doesn't give you the right to call it silly.

    these lot clearly don't know what a martyr is
    martyr is a theoetical concept, so it can be anything you want it to be - hence the danger of such ideologies and the weak minded that get sucked into them. these islamsits regarded them selves as eventual 'martyrs' they said so

    oh that makes sense, I guess everyone else knew of the one open channel.
    Also, at one point one of the BBC reporters tried to move a bit closer and the signal started cutting out so they moved back to where they were (and where all the other journalists were) so it would make sense.

    I think all religions are silly though, Islam just seems to be one that causes more problems than the others.

    I have one question. Isn't it stupid to broadcast what is happening outside the shop whilst the hostage takers are inside I mean they'll be able to see everything?
    There will be a delay on the footage.

    From 2008, I'd guess both percentages have increased since.
    bbc states it's 7.5%

    You are right. Its existence gives him the right to call it silly.

    There was at least 6 hostages shown escaping from the supermarket, so if any have died/been injured then there must have been more in there than the media suspected.

    Edit: Reports suggesting that 4 hostages have been killed - Reuters, according to a police source.

    ah so they had a signal jammer covering a certain patch of area thanks.
    doesn't matter what you think others don't. you should respect others belief/view like these cartoonists i didn't like what they did but i respected that it was their right to do so even if i disagreed

    They do it with all live footage in case something horrific happens like a bomb going off and killing everyone. It gives them time to cut the broadcast. They even do it with live sport broadcasting.

    That's a 2010 statistic from a PEW study. I'd guess it's closer to 10%, especially with the inclusion of those of a "Muslim culture".

    And another source puts it at 10%
    France’s Muslim population has reached an estimated 6.5 million – roughly 10 per cent of the population – and many of them have assimilated poorly. Despite the billions of euros poured into immigrant-dominated “sensitive urban zones” since the riots of 2005, nothing has improved. Youth unemployment in these areas is upward of 40 per cent, according to The Economist. Sixty per cent of France’s prison inmates are of “Muslim religion or culture,” and the prisons have become breeding grounds for radicalization.

    You can't be too careful. I think for sports it is in case of streakers. You can't show a naked person before the watershed.

    . you should respect others belief/view
    That is nonsense. I respect your right to believe what you like but if you choose to believe nonsense then I won't respect you for it, and I have the right to ridicule that belief. All superstitious beliefs are worthy of ridicule.

    Well done to French special forces in the warehouse operation. Really well executed. Although it was stupid of the brothers to "come out" firing...but then again such people are inherently stupid by nature.
    I guarantee you it (the police operation) will turn out to have been a complete amateur botch job. The frogs are completely incompetent.

    I agree that mas murders are never justified. What drives me crazy, as an european and a chrisitian is the mockery that islamic religion has faced FOR YEARS in europe. And frankly, I think this issue is far larger than this attack. I know that western countries are sick of immigrants, but they come from colonies so deal with it - not a valid point I know but it is historically hypocritical....
    Terrorism is unacceptable and no one deserves to be murdered.
    But I don't see the point in mocking other religions.
    Never had I heard a muslim/middle east publication mock christianity - they don't agree with it, but they don't make others feel like crap for believing in what they do. At least they take their religion very seriously, something europeans don't do anymore - not that I do, I'm just saying from this point of view, I respect muslims.
    There are 5-6 MILLIONS muslims in France, why mock all of them just to annoy terrorists(because the magazine knew people were angry at them and didn't stop). Can someone explain me what those drawings mean aside from shaming 6 million people- only in France, worldwide who knows?- for their belief?

    Again, I feel terribly sorry for the victims of terrorism but I do not agree that the publication is seen as a freedom of speech martyr - in my opinion, they abused the freedom of speech and those drawing are extremely offensive and hurtful.

    Muslim leaders are condemning these atrocities but that’s hardly sufficient. What are they doing in between? For all we know they’re blowing themselves up at bus garages.

    You've been busy congratulating people for a job well done, before you know it's a job well done.
