Twist on Free Speech and Hebdo

This story of several writers pulling out of an event where Hebdo are to be honoured with an award. Quotes Salman Rushdie, and a twitter storm has arisen. Showing that the following are consistently held:

  • Condemn Hebdo murders.
  • Defend Hebdo’s freedom to publish.
  • Celebrate Hebdo’s courage to publish.
  • Criticise Hebdo’s actual publications and motives.

As I have done here. Not complicated.

[And here, Alex Massie in The Spectator.]
