However, the EU’s refs do not put a damper on the Turkish president. On Sunday, he repeated the message from the day before and asked his French counterpart to check his mental health.

Borell calls the statements unacceptable.

– Turkey is asked to stop this dangerous confrontation spiral, he writes on Twitter on Sunday.

Erdogan’s sarcastic outcome comes after Macron’s statements about Islam and Islamic extremism following the assassination of teacher Samuel Paty. According to Erdogan, Macron must have a problem with Islam as long as he defends the right to show caricatures of the Muslim prophet Muhammad.

France called home its ambassador to Turkey on Saturday in protest of the statements.

– Whips up hatred

French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian accuses Turkey of trying to whip up hatred against France. He believes it is unacceptable behavior from a NATO ally.

“The Turkish government’s hateful, defamatory propaganda against France reveals a desire to whip up the hatred against us and among us,” says Le Drian.

He also expresses disappointment that Turkey has failed to condemn the assassination of Paty, nor has it expressed solidarity with France in retrospect.

France is also in conflict with Turkey over Libya, Turkish gas exploration off Greek islands, and most recently over Nagorno-Karabakh, where France has criticized Turkey’s support for Azerbaijan.

Calls for a boycott

In several Muslim countries, calls have been made to boycott French products as a result of Macron’s outbursts against Islamic extremism and his promise to defend freedom of expression.

On Sunday, Macron was accused by Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan of attacking Islam and sowing discord. He refers, among other things, to Macron’s statement that Paty was killed because “Islamists want our future”.

“This is a time when President Macron could have come with a legendary hand and refused to make room for extremists, rather than creating further polarization and marginalization that will necessarily lead to radicalization,” Khan wrote on Twitter.

Paty had his throat cut in the open by an 18-year-old from a Chechen background after showing caricatures from the satire magazine Charlie Hebdo while teaching about freedom of expression.
