Muslims in Europe are treated like Jews before World War II, according to Turkish President Erdogan. The Turkish leader is angry about Emmanuel Macron’s reaction to a jihadist murder of a French high school teacher in a Parisian suburb. Protests against France have broken out in several countries.
French President Emmanuel Macron took the ire of the Islam community on Friday. At a national memorial for the teacher Samuel Paty, who was beheaded for showing Mohammed cartoons, Macron had vowed not to part with the caricatures. One country after another in the Middle East declared a boycott of French products, including in Qatar, Kuwait and Jordan.
Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan accused Macron of “encouraging Islamophobia,” rather than “condemning terrorists who commit violence,” be they Muslims, supporters of the idea of white superiority, or neo-Nazis. The Pakistani government announced that it was summoning the French ambassador to Pakistan on Monday to complain about President Emmanuel Macron’s “systematic Islamophobic campaign” after defending the freedom to publish religious cartoons in France.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said earlier that Macron should have “his mental health” examined and treated. On Monday he took it a step further by saying that Muslims in Europe are treated just as badly as Jews before World War II.
Low point Turkish Lira
According to Erdogan, Macron overreacts to the attack and abuses the murder to turn against Muslims and portray Islam as evil. Erdogan also called on Monday in his latest outburst against Macron to stop buying French products. France, in turn, recalled its ambassador to Ankara for consultations and to meet with Macron to discuss the current situation.
The stock markets also responded after the mutual hits. The Turkish lira hit a low against the dollar and the euro on Monday after threats by the Turkish president against France. For the first time, a dollar cost more than eight lira.
