editor’s note (read more of the statement):

 

the images shown below are a result of the huge wave of emotions throughout the artistic communities that was caused by the attack against the french satirical magazine. in no way is there any justification for violence against a paper or artist expressing their beliefs, and let’s hope the current situation will not create a disproportionate reaction.
