    Russia's Worst Air Accident: A321 Crashes in Sinai (273)
    617883775

    Cynical cartoons published by French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo of the Russian plane crash in Egypt have sparked a hashtag campaign #JeNeSuisPasCharlie (I am Not Charlie), in opposition to the original show of empathy to those killed in the January attack in Paris, this time lashing out at the outrageous mocking of the aircraft tragedy.

    The Internet has given its verdict on Charlie Hebdo's insulting cartoons on Russian air crash in Egypt, which took the lives of 224 people: 217 passengers and 7 crew members.

     Out of the 217 passengers, 138 were women, 62 men and 17 children. The tragedy has become the deadliest in Russian history, a fact ignored by the journalists in their search to seemingly provoke outrage at every opportunity.

     Just 11 months ago, in January 2015, the office of the magazine came under attack by Islamist gunmen who killed 12 people and wounded 11 after it published cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad.

     The Internet then united under the 'JeSuisCharlie' (I am Charlie) hashtag campaign to show empathy with those killed in the attack.

     Many of those who then supported the journalists in their tragedy are now in shock at how cynically the magazine has treated Russia's disaster.

    Here are just some of the comments.

    “Insane cynicism, mockery of the memories of the victims of a horrific tragedy.”

     “Everything has its limits”.

     “Those underjournalists simply don’t have any decency. Join the #JeNeSuisPasCharlie campaign! We are against such “freedom of speech!”

     “I was sincerely sorry for the journalists who died then in Paris, now I can only say #JeNeSuisPasCharlie”.

      In the real free world we say . . .

      "I may not agree with what you say but I will die for your right to say it . . ."

      Of course Putin and Russians wold not understand true freedom.

      The cartoon is a bit tacky, but it probably literally represents the truth!

      AHH . . .TRUTH! Now there's something that Putin and his minions fear and the Russian population in general knows nothing of what with the state media and all . . .

      Long live freedom of expression and artistic freedom. Do you, dear russian journalists, not understand harsh but subtle and thought-provoking satire?
      Charlie Hebdo strongly rejects any terror. And of course Charlie Hebdo laments and bemoan the victims as much as russians do.
      Yes, "JeSuisCharlie".
      Still.

      Knowing that Charlie Hebdo was acquired by the Rothschild clan, no surprise. Just letting Mr. Putin know how frustrated they are...
    • These are halcyon days for the synagogue of satan, they can mock Muslims,Russians,Putin,etc but no holohoaxers allowed. The turkic khazar devils with little or no hedrew DNA, have become chosen by tribal networking all over the Western world, this incident is simply a bit of BHLs tribal arrogance showing over the French goyim.

      karlitozulu. Maybe the cartoons were poor satire, distasteful cartoons - maybe not. People clearly interpret the cartoons very differently. But to say, like the Russian Union of Journalists does according to Sputniknews, that the cartoons are "criminal" - is a dangerous path to go down. It is the road to censorship and mind control. The world has seen too much of this in the past. And Russia is a great, strong and important nation, Russia don't need to go down that road. Russians have an old and proud tradition for great and free spirited litterature, culture, music. Surely you can live with a couple of cartoons. We all mourn the terrible loss of lives in the tragic plane crash. Also Charlie Hebdo of course.

      Je ne suis pas Charlie

      In fact I NEVER was Charlie. I consider them completely lacking respect. They do not have any decency, any understanding for human heart and soul.

      I despised and I will still continue to despise those people.

      Freedom of speech is important, it's one of the fundamental human rights, that enable me to say that the cartoons are absolutely disgusting without living in fear that someone will prosecute me for saying that.

      Freedom of speech is nothing without the duties and responsibilities that follow with it. Respect for others is the main duty and responsibility for all that exercise this right. These cartoons blatantly violate this responsibility. It's hurtful and disrespectful towards all victims of the crash, and those that remain behind in mourning.

      Luckily we all have the right to either speak out against these cartoons or ignore them altogether and I sincerely hope everyone else will do the same.

      None of this is surprising coming from a right-wing racist and chauvinistic rag. Defenders of "free speech" who support Charlie also unknowingly end up supporting National Socialist and KKK cartoonists at their dehumanizing and incendiary worst.

      The larger question remains: is political humor EVER funny when the victims, the poor and the suffering, are demonized and dehumanized?

      Every day and in every way the same choice confronts us: Whose side are you on? The victims' or the executioners'?

      Michel van Dijk,

      At school there was always this wanna-be bully kid who couldn't really fight. So instead he just walked around and secretly wiped boogers on the backs of his classmates.

      You know what I mean?
