Olivier Cyran, a former contributor to Charlie Hebdo, wrote this
thoughtful critique some time ago, but he does argue that the politics
of CH were not as pristine pure as some left-wingers claim:
Indeed from the descriptions in this article I detect a similarity
between the approach of CH and that of the pro-war "socialists" of the
Euston Group and the website "Harry's Place".
P.S. There was one particular image (cover) that I found very
disturbing. A group of pregnant black women wearing hijabs with the
caption "Boko Haram's sex slaves: 'Hands off our welfare benefits'".
