The attacks on the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo had deep personal resonance for Berkeley-based political cartoonist Khalil Bendib. One of his heroes, the cartoonist Jean Cabut, was among those killed, and as a Muslim he says he fears a backlash. Bendib and Amir Soltani, co-authors of the graphic novel "Zahra's Paradise," join us to talk about balancing freedom of religion and expression in a multicultural society.
