An influential French news magazine Friday removed a cartoon of a revered Senegalese Muslim leader that sparked outrage in the west African nation in a row involving Islam, handbags and homosexuality.
Okay, it wasn't the government. It was a magazine doing the groveling. But is this the start of a general retreat? Is this the first broken pencil in the war with Islamist censorship?
Is that whole Je Suis Charlie pretense over? Are the French all just sorry now?
