Ashahed M. Muhammad is one of the contributors to a newly released book asking the provocative question: ‘Is there another side to the story?’
Only one version of the Charlie Hebdo affair made the mainstream media: “Muslim extremists kill cartoonists and Jews.” An officially orchestrated response—“je suis Charlie”—followed.
But is there another side to the story?
Disturbing facts quickly emerged. Politicians, big media, the security industry, and arms manufacturers all rushed to cash in. And freedom of speech in France –the supposed target of the terrorists—was rolled back by the French government. Even as millions marched for Charlie, millions more sensed that something was very, very wrong.
In We Are Not Charlie Hebdo, twenty-one leading public intellectuals refuse the invitation to identify with “Je Suis Charlie.” Jews, Muslims, Christians, Protestants, Catholics, atheists, people of the left and right, progressives and traditionalists, people from many different countries and ethnicities—all have united to say “we are NOT Charlie Hebdo.”
Many suspect the whole affair was a false flag operation or psy-op. (Evidence for that interpretation is presented in the book.) Others merely dissent from the official, mythic false consensus.
If you question what governments tell you...if you doubt the mainstream media version of events...if you are NOT Charlie Hebdo...then this book is for you.
