Stop Jihad bow

Like so many people, I am deeply disgusted by today's barbarian act of terrorism.

In solidarity (with a newspaper I don't think I've ever read), and like those who signed their names as translators of Salman Rushdie's Satanic Verses (following an assassination of one of them), I am adding a symbol of freedom of speech on my site: a cover drawing from Charlie Hebdo.

They can find me if they want.

For those who might misundersrtand (I am also concurrently preparing the launch of a book of mine - pure coincidence in time), this is not an advertisement.

Although we cannot all, like the cartoonist Charb, state that we have no children, no partner, we can say that we are scared. In this respect, they've won. But they cannot kill us all.

So I invite everyone - private, freelance or company - to add a symbol of solidarity to your website or blog. If everyone represents "evil" (in their eyes), we will be less targeted individually.

Stop Jihad bow

Comme beaucoup, je suis profondément répugné par l'acte barbare de terrorisme d'aujourd’hui.

En guise de solidarité (avec un journal que je crois n'avoir jamais lu), et à l'instar de ceux qui se sont désignés traducteurs des Versets Sataniques de Salman Rushdie, je rajoute un symbole de la liberté d'expression sur mon site : un dessin de couverture de Charlie Hebdo.

L'on saurait où me retrouver.

Pour ceux qui n'auraient pas compris (je suis en train de préparer le lancement d'un livre en même temp), aucune intention publicitaire n'est visée.

Si nous ne pouvons pas tous comme Charb dire ne pas avoir d'enfants, de femme/homme, nous pouvons dire que nous avons peur. En ceci, ils ont gagné. Mais ils ne peuvent pas tous nous tuer.

J'invite tous ceux et toutes celles, sociétés y comprises, de rajouter un symbole de solidarité à votre site web ou blog. Si tout le monde représente le "mal" (à leur sens), on est moins visé.

It's been a busy year... As things wind down for Christmas, it's time to do all those things I've been promising myself for months.

Now the socks are washed, it's back to the website for a few revisions and updates.

The first thing is a sort of "announcement" about my forthcoming book on the French language (in French), but more on that in a few days time. Just don't be surprised if I start "prospecting" you :o)
