I agree completely with Abdelkrim Branine, chief editor at Beur FM, who was interviewed on Le Monde yesterday about the aftermath of the attack on Charlie Hebdo.

Particularly key is the paragraph in which she writes of people's fears following the attacks, including attempted violence on individuals and mosques: 'my parents called me to tell me not to go to work, I dissuaded them from going to the mosque on Friday, and my retired parents-in-law have delayed returning to France from Algeria...'

While she does disagree with many of Charlie Hebdo's caricatures, particularly the famous Muhammad one (for linking Islam with terrorism rather than portraying the prophet at all): 'you don't need to declare "je suis Charlie" to share the grief of the families.'

Some welcome nuance then.
