Get Hanno ucciso Charlie Hebdo: Il terrorismo e la resa PDF

By Giulio Meotti

7 gennaio 2015: un commando di terroristi islamici fa irruzione nella redazione parigina di «Charlie Hebdo» e uccide otto fra giornalisti e vignettisti. thirteen novembre 2015: un commando di kamikaze fa strage nei locali notturni della capitale francese, causando 129 morti. Perché Parigi? Perché è l. a. città delle vignette su Maometto e di "Soumission" di Michel Houellebecq.
La grande manifestazione «Je suis Charlie» dell'11 gennaio 2015 è stata una dimostrazione di solidarietà che ha impressionato tutti e in keeping withò ha anche trasmesso un'impressione fuorviante. Come se da una parte ci fosse il mondo libero unito nel sostegno alla libertà di espressione, e dall'altra una manciata di estremisti islamici che si oppone alla libertà e a «tutto ciò che ci è più caro».
Ben presto è apparso chiaro che los angeles minaccia alla libertà non veniva soltanto dai barbari alle porte, ma anche dall'interno della stessa cittadella della civiltà. I giornalisti di «Charlie» erano stati abbandonati, demonizzati, messi sotto scorta e infine processati in quella capitale dei valori europei che è Parigi. Gran parte del giornalismo e della letteratura in Europa non è mai stato «Charlie».
Questo libro ripercorre in line with l. a. prima volta l. a. «guerra dei trent'anni» sulla libertà di espressione e l'islam. Una guerra iniziata con "I versi satanici" di Salman Rushdie, proseguita con l'affaire delle vignette in Danimarca e culminata nel massacro a «Charlie Hebdo». Le vittime sono country vignettisti, giornalisti, scrittori, artisti, traduttori, sceneggiatori, giornali, case editrici, musei e anche un papa, Benedetto XVI.
Nessuno oggi oserebbe riscrivere "I versi satanici" e, se anche lo facesse, nessun editore oserebbe pubblicarli, così come il movie di Theo van Gogh "Submission" è sparito in fretta dalle sale cinematografiche. Nella clandestinità e nell'assassinio dei giornalisti di «Charlie Hebdo» è morta un po' della libertà che tutti noi avevamo di pensare, di leggere, di scrivere. Parigi, l. a. città delle luci, oggi è un po' più buia.
