Из многих слов, написанных по поводу убийства карикатуристов Charlie Hebdo в Париже, наиболее созвучной собственным мыслям мне показалась колонка Росса Даузета в Нью-Йорк Таймс: The Blasphemy We Need.

You know what gets me the most?
The fact that there is comparison of caricatures with hate crimes.

There is freedom of speech and press,and what it suggests is you can (and possibly even should, although thats a gray area) express your opinions if you think they are worth expressing. However, it implies that they should be expressed in a certain forum - and "press" of any variety is something that cannot cause physical harm to other people. More then that - if one wants to avoid it, it is very easy to do. Don't read/look at it. Its really that simple.
Same logic that applies to say gay marriage. Best bumper sticker - against gay marriage? Don't marry a gay person!
Find these caricatures offensive? Don't look at them!

Yeah, I am with you.
There's no crime in expressing hateful opinions - as long as it's just communication, pictures and sounds. It is appropriate to respond in a similar way, hateful or mocking or pleasant, - with pictures and sounds, but not with violence.
