LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - On January 7, two hooded gunmen entered the office of the popular satirical magazine and killed 12 people, including the magazine's editor, Stephane Charbonnier.

Charlie Hebdo was known for their often controversial, political cartoons. Many of the cartoons targeted the Prophet Mohammed and Islamic law.

According to reports, Charlie Hebdo's intentions were not to directly target Muslims. "The aim is to laugh... We want to laugh at the extremists -- every extremist. They can be Muslim, Jewish, Catholic. Everyone can be religious, but extremist thoughts and acts we cannot accept," said Laurent Leger, a Charlie Hebdo staffer to CNN in 2012 after a previous attack on the magazine.

Charbonnier is quoted as saying, "I prefer to die standing up than live on my knees."

Here are a few of the political cartoons that bravely stand up for freedom of speech and condemn the terrorist attack on Charlie Hebdo:
