Charlie Hebdo: Freedom of Speech, or An Excuse to Bully? - The Takeaway. Europe remains on edge in the wake of the deadly terrorist attack at the satirical publication Charlie Hebdo.

Muslims' mixed response to new Mohammed cover - CNN.com."My initial thought is that the cover is a near perfect response to the tragedy," said Hussein Rashid, a professor of Islamic thought at Hofstra University in New York.
