Charlie Hebdo's staff goes hypocritical, suspending writer criticial of Islam

Was this bound to happen? Probably inevitable, but here's a case that's now caused outrage (Hat tip: Jihad Watch):
Satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo has been accused of hypocrisy after it suspended a journalist who has received death threats for her articles attacking Islamic extremism.

Zineb El Rhazoui, 33, was called to a preliminary dismissal hearing to remind her of her ‘obligations’ towards the French weekly following ‘numerous incidents’.

The French-Moroccan columnist accused her employers of trying to ‘punish her’ for speaking out about the direction of the magazine four months after the jihadist attack which left 12 dead.

‘I am shocked and appalled that a management that has received so much support after the January attacks could show so little support for one of its employees, who is under pressure like everyone in the team and has faced threats,’ she told Le Monde.

‘My husband lost his job and had to leave Morocco because the jihadists revealed his workplace. I am under threat and having to live with friends or in a hotel and the management is thinking of firing me. Bravo Charlie.’

The move has prompted outrage on social media with thousands calling the decision ‘absurd’ and bewildering’.

Mrs El Rhazoui and her husband, Moroccan writer Jaouad Benaïssi, received death threats on Twitter from people claiming to be from Islamic State in February.

Photoshopped images of the couple dressed as ISIS prisoners about to be executed emerged on social media along with a map showing the places the journalist often visited.
Is this how to treat somebody who's been threatened with death? Absolutely not, and if the editors really don't want people to think they've turned full-fledged cowards now, they'll cease all acts of negativity against the woman immediately. They could end up losing audience if they go the dhimmi route for real.
