Charlie Hebdo just sent a huge middle finger to ISIS.

The cover of the controversial magazine, which had its offices attacked and 12 killed by terrorists in January, ran the cover below following the Paris attacks last week.

Terrorist group ISIS claimed responsibility for killing 129 people around Paris in a series of coordinated bombings and shootings that has rocked the world.

The cover of the magazine features a man chugging champagne while it pours out of what appears to be bullet holes.

"They have weapons… F*ck them, we have champagne!" the captions says.

Indeed.

By now you’ve probably seen the new Charlie Hebdo cover featuring the prophet Muhammad holding a sign that says “Je Suis Charlie.” It’s plastered all over the Internet at this point.

The print issues sold out in Paris, and 300 copies are on their way to the United States this week.

But a number of big media outlets still refuse to show it (ahem… The New York Times).

In this video from a Sky News segment Wednesday, former Charlie Hebdo contributor Caroline Fourest expresses her outrage at such news organizations and begins to hold up a copy of the magazine.

“I am very sad that journalists in the UK do not support us, that journalists in the UK betray what journalism is about by thinking that people are not grown-up enough to decide whether a drawing is offensive or not,” she said.

But she isn’t able to finish her thought, as the cameras immediately cut back to the anchor, Dharshini David.

“I do apologize for any of our viewers who may have been offended,” she says.

There were 3.7 million people at this weekend's anti-terrorism rally in Paris – the largest in French history.

One of those people was Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama, who wore this simple, yet powerful symbol of solidarity in his jacket pocket.

Rama used to teach at the Academy of Arts of Albania and was an artist himself for years. As mayor of Tirana, he organized a mural project to transform Soviet-era ruins into colorful works of art.
