#JeSuisCharlie - New Charlie Hebdo Cover Features Crying Prophet Mohammed
Charlie Hebdo, the French satirical magazine that was recently attacked by the Kouachi brothers who killed four of their top cartoonists and 8 others, are going ahead with their work. And that includes a new edition featuring a cover that depicts Prophet Mohammed carrying the Je Suis Charlie sign.
Je Suis Charlie became the rallying slogan after the terror attacks that rocked France, leaving 17 dead including the Je Suis Charlie staff, 3 policemen and 4 people trapped in a hostage situation at a Jewish Kosher market.
A surviving cartoonist for Charlie Hebdo is responsible for this new drawing of Prophet Muhammad wit the tagline on the cover “Tout Est Pardonne” which means “all is forgiven.”
Luz said he cried after he finished drawing the cartoon and does not intend to offend anyone but to beg for peace and unity.
CNN reports that the magazine is planning to release three million copies of the new issue, compared to their usual run of 600,000.
