Consider the motives for the Charlie Hebdo attack with an open mind. What is the outcome and who benefits ? Think critically and consider the possibility that the CIA and MOSSAD prompted, recruited, enabled and orchestrated this slaughter to further their own agendas of the militarization of civilian police forces, expansion surveillance, restriction of civil liberties: free speech, freedom of the press, freedom of assembly, and to take the world’s attention away from the Israeli War crimes in Gaza, to further demonize islam and ENGINEER THE CONSENT of the public to swallow the New World Empire’s agenda of boots on the ground in Iraq, and garner support for the global ruling class imperial protocols of universal war profiteering and authoritarian repression. Remember 9-11- the same motives apply, and the same characters are pulling the puppet strings and conducting the orchestra. The big picture is ugly. Charlie Hebdo was and is much more than a platform for anti-Muslim cartoons. The anti-Zionist cartoons, and American-British Imperial cartoons were, perhaps the real ‘opinions’ that were vengefully silenced. It is the tyranny of capital and the royal cartels that represent the 1/10th percent of the global ruling class that benefit from the murders. Perfect patsies those oswaldian jihadi wannabee martyrs…hmmm ?
What about all the other school shootings, The Oklahoma City bombing , Boston Marathon bombing, London Train bombing, etc, etc, etc. and now JOHN BONER has invited NETANYAHU to address Congress !!! WTF is it not obvious who the puppet masters are ?
How many other recent assassinations, accidents and fake suicides of popular opposition leaders and journalists and film makers can you think of that are potentially linked ? Historically, we have Admiral James Forrestal, the first secretary of defense, then JFK, RFK, MLK, JFK Jr., Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, John Lennon, RONALD REAGAN, yes George H.W. BUSH wanted to be President sooner, and The Gipper was resistant to being told what to do by the ‘Shadow Government’. Don’t forget Senator Paul Wellstone, Journalist Michael Hastings, former CIA operative and author of CIA-Drug Cartel collusion whistle blowing book The’ Bamboozle’, Phillip Marshall and his two teenage children, Filmaker David Crowley, screenwriter of ‘Gray State’ whose video has been removed from You Tube, try to view ‘Gray State at this site :
Glenn Greenwald, Edward Snowden, Chelsea Manning, Laura Poitras, Jeremy Scahill, James Fetzer, General Stubblebine, Matt Taibbi, Tim Dickinson, Robert Kennedy Jr., cartoonist Victor Juhasz and former Governors Jesse Ventura and Jennifer Granholm would all be dead too, if they were not in asylum or too public to execute cleanly. Expect many more suspiscious assassinations, accidents and faked suicides as well as ever frequent ‘TERROR’ attacks.
This scenario is plausible and in many circles probable, as all global events seem to be choreographed and the propagandized spin is all predicated on expanding the global surveillance police state, the fake war on terror and the rise of the censorship of the totalitarian New World Order. This would not be possible without the entrenched systemic political corruption fostered by the corporate elite. The Global Propaganda War machine marches on. Depose the tyranny, expose the treason and never surrender to injustice. Vive Charlie !
The Charlie Hebdo Cartoons no one is showing you:
Below are cartoons drawn over the past several decades by Cabu, one of the most emblematic cartoonists at Charlie Hebdo (if not the most). Cabu was murdered along with his colleagues this past week. He was 75 years old.
Although no media outlet in the US will show you these images, they can all be found online with a simple Google search.
This cartoon by Cabu criticizes racial profiling, specifically discrimination by the French police against immigrants from North Africa and people of African descent. The caption reads: “No to racist controls [identity checks].”
This cartoon by Cabu depicts and quotes the racist demagogue politician Jean-Marie Le Pen of the Front National party (with the eye patch). The caption reads: “We want to be able to go out in the evening without being afraid.” The armed thugs in the background are racist skinheads and their ilk. The cartoon leaves little doubt as to who is afraid.
This cartoon by Cabu depicts young people of color looking at a Christmas display of a toy costume for a CRS, the riot control force of the French National police, which has long been accused of brutality and racism. The critique here is about the normalization of police control and militarization and its negative impact specifically against young people of African descent.
This cartoon by Cabu meant to raise the alarm at the rise in popularity of far-right, anti-immigrant politician Marine Le Pen and her Front National party (founded by her father, the notorious right-wing racist and xenophobic politician Jean-Marie Le Pen). The captions read on the left “Disappointed by Sarkozysm” [ie. disappointed by the policies of the Center Right politics of former French president Sarkozy] and on the right “Disappointed by Hollandism” [ie. disappointed by the policies of the Center Left politics of current French president Hollande.] Marine Le Pen is cast as the “hostess”. A rough translation of her caption would be: “Move it you red, white & blue peckerheads!”
This cartoon by Cabu criticizes the size of the military budgets across Europe. The captions read at the top, “Those clowns that suck the blood of Europe,” and at bottom, “Let’s put the military budgets on a diet!”
This cartoon by Cabu ruthlessly criticizes the French military. The caption reads: “14 Juillet [France’s Independence Day], the killers’ holiday.”
This cartoon by Cabu does not require translation.
This cartoon by Cabu was published in 1979 in the antiwar journal of the Pacifist Union. While this specific image might not have been published in Charlie Hebdo (I don’t have access to their archives), it strikingly conveys Cabu’s lifelong antiwar and anticolonialist politics, which always fit right in at Charlie Hebdo (and were shared by the majority of the journalists and cartoonists there). The caption reads: “France doesn’t have oil, but she has an army!”

#JeSuisCharlie, #JeSuisMusulman: contradiction?
Submitted by Bill Weinberg on Wed, 01/07/2015 – 20:23
By now we’ve all heard. Gunmen today shot dead 12 people at the Paris office of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, apparently while shouting “Allahu Akbar” and “We have avenged the Prophet Muhammad!” Editor Stephane “Charb” Charbonnier is among the dead; he had received death threats in the past and was living under police protection. Charlie Hebdo’s offices were bombed in 2011, after the magazine released an issue in which the Prophet Muhammed was satirically billed as “guest editor.” The issue included cartoons lampooning Muhammed and was redubbed “Charia Hebdo,” a reference to Shariah law. The new attack is said to be the deadliest in France since 1961, when rightists who opposed Algerian independence bombed a train, killing 28 people. (BBC News, NYT)
The New York Times headline states all too obviously, “Paris Attack Reflects a ‘Dangerous Moment’ for Europe,” quoting Peter Neumann of the UK-based International Center for the Study of Radicalisation: “This is a dangerous moment for European societies. With increasing radicalization among supporters of jihadist organizations and the white working class increasingly feeling disenfranchised and uncoupled from elites, things are coming to a head.” The example is cited of the recent anti-immigrant, anti-Islam rallies in Germany, under the banner of Pegida—Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamization of the West.
[I]n the moments after the news broke about the Charlie Hebdo massacre, I found it impossible to ignore a sinking feeling: the recognition that we were being pulled further into a cycle of distrust and division.
It grew as I read through the responses online. The straightforward reaction from far-right extremists was the hashtag #killallmuslims, which would have been easy to ignore as empty words if it hadn’t reminded me of the firebombing of mosques after the Lee Rigby murder.
Less violent but still divisive was the way the attack was depicted as a battle between Islam and freedom of speech, or between Muslims and satire—a clash-of-civilisations argument that splits the world neatly into “them” and “us”, by ignoring the staggering death toll of terrorist attacks abroad (most recently the massacre of schoolchildren in Pakistan).
There is some important truth here. We have also emphasized that the principal concern of jihadist franchises like ISIS and the various Qaeda affiliates is the struggle within Islam against secularism and internal heresy such as Shia, and only secondarily the jihad against the West. Their victims are overwhelmingly Muslim, contrary to the Western media “narrative.” And indeed patronizing demands on Muslims to repudiate such extremism is a form of stigmatization which is sure to backfire—especially as no such demands are placed on Jews (by mainstream voices, anyway) to repudiate Israeli state terror.
But this also obscures a point: in resisting the “clash-of-civilizations narrative,” we must advocate an analysis that emphasizes the clashes within “civilizations.” There are Muslims, and non-Muslims living within Muslim-majority nations and communities, who oppose the ever-more-reactionary rule of political Islam—just as there are white Europeans who stand up to the current paroxysm of xenophobia and Islamophobia. Thousands of Germans have taken to the streets to repudiate the ugly Pegida. But those in the Middle East and Muslim communities in the West who similarly stand up to the increasingly hegemonic Islamist reaction are too often portrayed by “progressives” as dupes or agents of imperialism.
In previous irruptions of the interminable cartoon controversy, “progressives” have repeatedly raised the absurd fallacy that freedom of speech is a scheme to allow the white male power structure to shout down the rest of us. A case in point this time around is the commentary of one Jacob Canfield on the Hooded Utilitarian blog. His title concedes: “Free Speech Does Not Mean Freedom From Criticism; You can condemn the attacks without embracing the cartoons.” But he doesn’t write like he means it about the “free speech” part. He says Charb “comes across as a racist asshole” for having dared to state, “Muhammad isn’t sacred to me… I live under French law. I don’t live under Koranic law.”
As we have noted, an inherent right to blasphemy was precisely the position that progressives took in the controversy over art photographer Andres Serrano‘s “Piss Christ.” It’s true that Christians are not oppressed and marginalized in the West as Muslims are—but does that entirely justify the double standard? Would progressives defend intentionally offensive anti-Muslim art in countries where Christians are oppressed and marginalized by Muslim majorities, such as Syria, Iraq, Egypt? How many “progressives” who protest the sophomoric humor of Charlie Hebdo came to the defense of Gillian Gibbons, the British schoolteacher imprisoned in Sudan a few years back for innocently naming a class teddy bear “Mohammed”? How many have opposed the ugly Jew-hating cartoons that appear regularly in the Arab press? No, that is left to be exploited by the Zionists and Islamophobes. And around it goes.
There will be some progress in this world when Jews protest Israeli state terror and Muslims protest Islamist terror—and not in response to condescending demands that they do so, but because it is necessary to oppose atrocities committed in the name of one’s own group identity. The Germans who are protesting Pegida get this. So too did the NRIs (non-resident Indians, presumably including some of Hindu background) who protested Narendra Modi on his much-hyped US tour last year. The dueling Twitter hashtags #JeSuisCharlie (I am Charlie) and #JeSuisMusulman (I am Muslim) suggest a pathological dichotomy: we can extend solidarity both to artists and satirists (no matter how sophomoric) and to Muslims under xenophobic attack.
At the rally this evening in the bitter cold of New York’s Union Square, a crowd of mostly French protesters held matching mass-produced signs reading “Je Suis Charlie.” Amid the crowd was one young man, seemingly of Arab background, who held a hand-written sign that read “I am Charlie” in Arabic.
More of this.
