Hur väst svek Charlie Hebdo

Så här inleder ARIs Elan Journo sin senaste artikel (“The Betrayal of Charlie Hebdo”) om hur väst svek Charlie Hebdo och yttrandefrihetens sak:

Four years ago — on January 7, 2015 — jihadists burst into the Paris office of Charlie Hebdo and shot to death members of the magazine’s staff.

Immediately after the massacre, countless people took to the streets to remember the fallen journalists. Globally on social media, many echoed the slogan “Je Suis Charlie” in solidarity.

But when the moment faded, it became clear that the threat to freedom of speech emanates not only — or even primarily — from the “jihadists’ veto.” The deeper problem is us. There’s pervasive antipathy to the principle of freedom of speech. Unless we understand and value it, we will lose this crucial right.

Om du också månar om yttrandefriheten, då råder jag dig att läsa och att sprida artikeln vidare.
