It is not the problem with icons, this would be addressed later, when
the Muslims are majority and could do as they like (or as the most
intolerant of them like as the others would not side with kafirs anyway
as Islam forbid it).

The problem here is the concept of "honor" in Islam and how it devolve
in avoiding shame and have nothing in common with guilt.
Charlie Ebdo shamed them and the only way Muslims could restore their
honor would be destroying the cause of the shame.
They do not mind their Prophet had sex with a nine years old, they use
it for justifying marrying and having sex with 9 years old (or lower).
What they can not tolerate is anyone (Muslim or not) criticizing it in
public or shaming them in public for this. And it is a fine solution in
Islam to kill these people. Mohammad did it many times, why should they
not do the same? Is it not the finest example of a man to imitate, as
the Quran say?
