Charlie Hebdo, the long-running French satirical magazine, has published what it’s website calls a “halal” comic book on the life of Islamic prophet Mohammed.
The publication of the book, which is selling for 6 euros on the Charlie Hebdo website, is just the latest in a long line of provocative moves from the publication.
For example, after re-publishing Danish cartoons of Mohammad in 2011 the magazine’s Paris offices were firebombed. The magazine then published a new cover featuring their editor and a man dressed in traditional Islamic clothing kissing.
