Charlie Hebdo can't hide behind the cloak of satire anymore: it "unveiled" its true color.

Goebbels as editor of Der Angriff (until 1933) often respond to complaints of grotesque anti-Semitism in his magazine by claiming it is all "satire" and fun.  This has been the same ploy of Charlie Hebdo.  Its last editorial draws upon the novel "Submission".  This is a good critique of the editorial.  At least we now know the true serious side of Hebdo, and it is grotesque.  They basically make the argument that all Muslims are alike no matter what they say in public. Typical notion of classical anti-Semites.
