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'".
