German newspaper firebombed for running Charlie Hebdo cartoonsfirebombed overnight for running Charlie Hebdo cartoons (Hat Tip: Memeorandum).
With security services on high alert after a killing spree in Paris by Islamic extremists, police in the northern German port city of Hamburg said no one was injured in the blaze at the headquarters of the regional daily Hamburger Morgenpost, which caused only slight damage.
"Rocks and then a burning object were thrown through the window," a police spokesman told AFP.
"Two rooms on lower floors were damaged but the fire was put out quickly."
So is the world standing up to radical Islam in Paris today? Not really. Today's march is all about shows and symbolism. Really standing up would require acknowledging that for many Muslims, Islam is nothing but a cult that justifies murder.The Hamburger Morgenpost, known locally as the MOPO, had splashed the Charlie Hebdo cartoons on its front page after the massacre at the Paris publication, running the headline "This much freedom must be possible!"
And for those who have forgotten, three of the 9/11 hijackers, including leader Mohamed Atta, came from Hamburg.
