Why would Muslims attack the French? More than most any other Country, the French has compromised their Culture in service to the Muslims.

No right is legal for anyone to offend others especially in respect of religion.there are different believers and one should not provoke them by blasphemy of thier views.french are social and responsible, they should prohibit such acts in thier homeland. Free speech doesn't mean to blaspheme others more specialy in respect of religion.

By supporting Charlie Hebdo, in the name of "Freedom of expression", the French government has in fact, placed itself as hostage to the whims of its editor.

At any time now, French foreign policy could be jeopardised and French lives abroad put at risk with the publication of offensive cartoons, just for the sake of satistfying the whims of their authors who will take no responsability for the outcome, but laugh all the way.

To me, it's a case of the tail wagging the dog.
