Turkish Officials Lash Out at Cartoon Depicting Erdogan

Turkish officials have lashed out at the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, which published a cartoon mocking Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
The cartoon shows Erdogan, apparently in his underwear, holding a drink and lifting the skirt of a woman wearing Islamic garb.
“We strongly condemn the publication concerning our president of the French magazine, which has no respect to faith, the sacred and values,” Erdogan’s spokesman, Ibrahim Kalin, tweeted.
Tensions between the two NATO allies have risen in recent months as Macron vowed to defend secularism in the wake of the public beheading of a French teacher earlier this month by a Muslim militant.
NOTE: I have been making fun of Erdogan for years. A Turkish friend of mine had, later on, asked me to remove any mention of himself in a piece I wrote about Erdogan, using the following drawing because he said that his life may be threatened by the Erdogan government. I complied.
