Muslim Policeman Died Defending the Right of French Cartoonists to Mock His Religion

Police Officer Ruthlessly Assassinated by Terrorist Was a Muslim

You know the French policeman defending the French cartoonists who was ruthlessly killed by the terrorists?

He was Muslim

The Atlantic notes:

For a number of reasons, the death of Ahmed Merabet should provide a way to understand Wednesday’s horrific shooting in Paris. Merabet, one of the two policemen shot and killed in Charlie Hebdo massacre, was a French Muslim man who died defending the laws that allow satirists to mock his religion.


One post in the Daily Caller’s coverage of the massacre placed the officer’s death within the context of how “Islam explicitly condemns killing other Muslims.”

The following image – trending today on Twitter – sums it up pretty well:
