It hardly seems a year since the Paris terrorist attacks on the Charlie Hebdo office and the kosher supermarket, but yes, tomorrow it will be the “anniversary,” if you can call it that.

That’s the thing about religious satire – it automatically delivers offence in the right dose: the amount of offence you take is exactly the amount you deserve.
The cartoon needs no commentary:
The cover (Translation: “One year on. The assassian is still with us.”)
