Salman Rushdie: "I Stand With Charlie Hebdo"

"I stand with Charlie Hebdo, as we all must, to defend the art of satire, which has always been a force for liberty and against tyranny, dishonesty and stupidity." - Salman Rushdie

As much as I support freedom of speech, I also preach respect and restraint when appropriate. I can't help but think that the publication of disrepectful material for the sole purpose of agitation, should be considered very carefully before release. What was the message of the Charlie Hebdo cartoons?

I am in no way excusing or condoning a terrorist response, which, in this case, has already had the opposite effect.
