Israel’s national Steimatzky’s book store chain plans to add Charlie Hebdo to its magazine racks, Israel’s Ch. 2 News reported Tuesday.

More than 7 million copies of the latest edition of Charlie Hebdo were sold worldwide after Islamist terrorists killed 12 employees in an attack on the publication’s offices two weeks ago. Steimatzky announced that copies would go on sale locally as of next week.

Israeli Researchers Develop New ALS Treatment

JNS.org - Researchers at Israel’s Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU) announced the development of a new treatment for amyotrophic lateral...

The January 14 edition features a cartoon of the Prophet Mohammed holding a sign saying, “Je Suis Charlie” (I am Charlie), with a headline above the cartoon reading, “Tout Est Pardonne” (All Is Forgiven).

A single copy of the magazine costs 35 shekels ($8.90 USD) and the first distribution outlet is set for Ayalon Mall in Ramat Gan, next to Tel Aviv, according to the firm, which has distributed copies of the satirical magazine in the past.

In related news – which might impact Israeli sales of the magazine either way – enraged jihadists in Gaza took to the streets on Monday to support the Islamic State terror group and condemn Charlie Hebdo.

“Today, we are telling France and world countries that while Islam orders us to respect all religions, it also orders us to punish and kill those who assault and offend Islam’s Prophet Mohammad,” protester Abu Abdallah al-Makdissi told Reuters.

    • Good for You! There are some things that should not be mocked! Free Speech is one thing! It must be confined to an appreciation of how it impacts on other’s. I am sure the word is Tolerance! There is an outfit selling replicas of Camp ‘uniforms’. I am not a Jew, but a writer on The Holocaust! There are no depths to which some will sink to make a $1??? 6,000,000 Jews of The Holocaust accuse!

    So at last we know that Islam is a peaceful religion. Anyone assaulting or offending Islam’s prophet Mohammed is to be punished and killed. Nothing unusual! Christians and Jews, Hindus and Taoists, Buddhists and Shinoists do it every day. Yes Islam is a pieceful religion. It wants a piece of this and a piece of that.

      If anyone who insults Islam is to be killed, how is it that those who are threatening to do this don’t kill themselves? Can there be a bigger insult to Islam than turning it into a 21st Century Kali cult?
