Jay Nordlinger is a senior editor of National Review and music critic of The New Criterion. His podcasts are Q&A and Music for a While.
Jay’s guest is Zineb El Rhazoui, a Moroccan journalist. She is a reporter for Charlie Hebdo. This is the Parisian magazine – satirical, left-wing, and atheist – that was attacked last January by Islamists. Two brothers named Kouachi massacred twelve people. Rhazoui was not there that day. She was on vacation.
She returned to Charlie Hebdo, for a few reasons. One of them, as she told Jay, was solidarity. “I owe something to my colleagues. I can’t abandon them. It’s my duty as a survivor, I think.”More
