Gun Attack on Charlie Hebdo Magazine that Insult Prophet Muhammad Kills 12.
Insulting Prophet Muhammad is not a wise thing to do. Just make a draw of Prophet Muhammad even as a handsome person is already forbidden. It is considered as heresy. Insulting. You could imagine if some people draw prophet in insulting way.
"It's just a cartoon!" maybe that's what the Charlie Hebdo's cartoonists think. But for the shooters, it's better you shoot them right in the head than making insulting cartoon of prophet Muhammad.
The shooters are the Islamists that went Jihad to Syria. Many of Jihadits from France, Germany, Britain etc go to Syria while some of them are still living in their country. They have many weapons. So, they could act not only in Syria, but also in France, Germany, even USA.
If Charlie Hebdo's cartoonists draw the cartoons just to make the Muslims angry, they did it.

In 2012, a cartoon appeared in the pages of Charlie Hebdo depicting the prophet Muhammad naked and crouching. It was a shot across the bow, a message that the weekly newspaper would not be intimidated into softening its critiques of extremists. Just a year earlier, the satirical paper’s headquarters were destroyed in a firebomb attack.
Kouachi, along with six others, was sentenced in May 2008 to 3 years in prison for terrorism in Paris. All seven men were accused of sending about a dozen young Frenchmen to join Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the leader of Al Qaeda in Iraq, after funneling them through radical religious establishments in Syria and Egypt. French authorities believed Kouachi had been planning to go to Syria for training in 2005.
