'Je Suis Charlie': Prophet Muhammad Featured On Charlie Hebdo's Newest Cover

| by Charles Roberts

A week after terrorists attacked satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, presumably over its past depictions of Muhammad, the publication has decided that its next cover would feature, you guessed it, Muhammad.

According to BBC, Charlie Hebdo editors announced on Monday that the next issue would show Muhammad holding up a sign that says “Je Suis Charlie." The now famous motto has become something of a rallying cry for free speech (and freedom in general) after 12 people were killed last week in the magazine’s office.

The next issue will be distributed to newsstands early Wednesday morning. Three million copies have already been printed and are currently under heavy security in Paris.
