    Charlie Hebdo featured two covers attacking Aylan Kurdi; a clear attack on the West's inactivity. But fearing that their outrage klaxons were getting dusty, the left has once again misconstrued something in order to cause a fuss. See for yourself:

    I think I get the first but as it says the message doesn't translate well

    The second one is very good

    But as you say those who don't understand the message will the the once crying the loudest

    The writer of the article really is a self-righteous tosser and the point seems to go over his little head.

    The second cartoon is good.
