pretty much says it all

The newest cover for the latest Charlie Hebdo:

Wake up, Europe.

Sadiq Khan is a Complete Idiot.
The Word "Islamophobia" is Newspeak Nonsense.

ADDENDUM: so will Charlie Hebdo receive the same flak that Kathy Griffin did for depicting a beheaded leader? I'm sure some of my readers will point out certain disanalogies. For myself, my stance remains self-consistent: Griffin was within her free-speech rights to do what she did, however tasteless and misguided the gesture (and by the way: if her sponsors have all decided to drop her, they're within their rights to do so), and by the same token, Charlie Hebdo can depict Prime Minister Theresa May in the way it has chosen to.
