Not Je Suis Charlie

But Je Suis Charles Martel.  If you haven't taken Western Civilization recently, I explain to my class that Charles Martel is the reason we are learning Western Civilization, not Muslim Civilization, in English, and there are women in this classroom.


  1. I don't understand this whole I am not charlie Hebdo stuff. Can you not be both Hebdo and Martel?

  2. A lot of publications put Je Suis Charlie "I am Charlie: on their covers to emphasize common cause against Islamofascism.

  3. I haven't been a student in decades, but I suspect most in school today don't learn Western Civilization, they just learn to hate it.
