I quit: Renald ‘Luz’ Luzier, 43, said he was unable to cope with the ‘grief, pain and anger’ which followed 12 people being murdered by Islamist gunmen

Charlie Hebdo was in chaos last night after its leading cartoonist revealed he was quitting the French magazine.

Renald ‘Luz’ Luzier, 43, said he was unable to cope with the ‘grief, pain and anger’ which followed 12 people – including many of his colleagues – being murdered by Islamist gunmen in Paris in January.

They were targeted for publishing blasphemous cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed.

Luz famously drew the front cover picture of the survivors’ edition which followed the terrorist outrage, but has been wracked by demons ever since.

Earlier this month he said he was giving up drawing the Prophet, and last night he told Liberation newspaper that he wanted ‘to remain the master of my life as much as possible, especially in the short term, and after what we lived through’.

Alluding to the way in which Charlie Hebdo has been adopted by those with a ‘free speech’ agenda against Islam, Luz said: ‘We’re not heroes, we never were, we never wanted to be’.

No, Pamela Geller is not Charlie Hebdo | USA TODAY College

Last weeks attempted terrorist attack on a cartoon contest depicting Muhammadin Garland, Texas in which both gunmenwere killed has prompted comparisons with the Januaryattack on the Parisoffices of the French satirical magazineCharlie Hebdo, in which12 were murdered.

Both have been cast by some asacts of aggression against progressive proponents of freedom of speech and expression.

But the Texas contest was sponsored by the American Freedom Defense Initiative, categorized by the Anti-Defamation League as a hate group,whose co-founder Pamela Geller has a long history of making bigoted statements. Among other provocations, Geller, on her blog Atlas Shrugs, has insinuated that President Obama is a secret Muslim intent on destroying the U.S.; played apivotal role in instigating national opposition to a proposedIslamic cultural center near the 9/11 memorial in New York City which she called the 911 monster mosque;and has runcontroversial ads in the New Yorksubway calling for the defeat of the savage.

There are some who feel Charlie Hebdo also attacked for its depictions of Muhammad is equally provocative for the sake of provocation. The attack in Garland comes on the heels of a controversy over the prestigious literary association PEN honoringCharlie Hebdo with itsFreedom of Expression Courage Award. Six prominent writers withdrew from PENs gala to protest the award, and more than 200 writers signed a letter criticizing the satirical magazine for its alleged anti-Arab and anti-Islam bigotry.

This condemnation was not the first directed at the French cartoonists. Far-left British MP George Galloway announced Je ne suis pas Charlie, or, I am not Charlie, after the attacks, calling the magazine Islamophobic and racist. The director of the British edition of the Huffington Post derided the magazines satire as free speech fundamentalism.

But no reasonable appraisal of the magazine can call it Islamophobic. There is no equivalence between the blasphemy of Charlie Hebdo, which was aimed at combating religious extremism, and Gellers demonization of an entire group of people.

Charlie Hebdohasconsistently and aggressively targeted ideologies, not people, most notably the Islamophobia and racism of Frances far-right National Front party. Over the last decade, a majority of Hebdos covers were political in nature, while less than 10%of covers skewered religion. Most of these covers ridiculed Christianity.

In 2012, Charlie Hebdo cartoonist Laurent Leger explained, We want to laugh at the extremists every extremist. They can be Muslim, Jewish, Catholic. Everyone can be religious, but extremist thoughts and acts we cannot accept.

The false conflation of blasphemy and bigotry has unfortunately become all too common. EvenPresident Obamajumped on it in aUnited Nations addresswhen he said,The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam those who condemn that slander must also condemn the hate we see in the images of Jesus Christ that are desecrated or the Holocaust that is denied. This statement seems to putThe Book of Mormon musical in the same category as the denial of the genocide of Jews inNazi Germany.

Deneuve shrugs off ‘Charlie Hebdo’ barb

CANNES, France World, take note. Catherine Deneuve showed how to take being the butt of satire from the infamous Charlie Hebdo at the Cannes Film Festival on Wednesday.

It took equal measures of class and a sense of humor from the iconic French actress, who starred in 1967’s Belle de Jour.

Speaking on the opening day of the festival for her latest film, Standing Tall, Deneuve, 71, was asked if she had thoughts about the latest issue of the satirical publication Charlie Hebdo.

The May 13 issue has a grotesque caricature of Deneuve. The cover caption reads “Suspect package found on the Croisette.”

USA TODAY

Cannes: Where are all the big bashes?

Then it follows with, “False alert, it’s Catherine Deneuve.”

Deneuve said she had not seen the cover. But she responded to the concept anyway.

“You can’t expect Charlie Hebdo to show something that would look like a fashion magazine,” said Deneuve. “I hope it’s funny at least. Even if it’s nasty.”

AQAP leader who claimed Charlie Hebdo attack killed by U.S …

Last Updated May 7, 2015 12:27 PM EDT

A senior leader of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) who declared the group was responsible for the Charlie Hebdo attack in Paris has been killed in a U.S. airstrike, CBS News correspondent David Martin confirms.

In this image made from militant video posted on the Twitter account of Yemen’s al Qaeda branch on Wednesday, Jan. 14, 2015, Nasr al-Ansi, a top commander of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, speaks about last week’s deadly assault on a French satirical newspaper.

AP

Nasr al-Ansi, who had been serving as an ideological leader, was among several fighters killed in a CIA drone strike on April 21, Martin confirms. Washington considers AQAP to be the most powerful in the terrorist network.

Al-Ansi’s death was announced by al Qaeda operative Khaled Batarfi in a video posted on the Internet. Batarfi did not say when or where in Yemen he was killed, adding only that al-Ansi’s eldest son, Mohammed, and several fighters were killed in the same airstrike.
