I cannot find words harsh enough to condemn the horrific attack in Notre Dame Cathedral in Nice and the stabbing incident in front of the French Consulate in Jeddah. Certainly, mocking the Prophet Muhammad, (PBUH), and indeed any religious symbol, is definitely unacceptable. However, the practice of violence against the innocent is also rejected, and it is definitely not allowed in our name as Muslims.
As for those who are to blame for what happened, they are those who claim to defend Islam, whose hands are stained with blood. Islam is innocent of them, and in fact they are only seeking political gains, thanks to the malicious hands of Turkey and Qatar, the recent campaign against France has gone beyond politics, and lives are lost today.
The misuse of religion to score points has always been the preferred method of these malicious regimes, and perhaps Iran is a professional in this field. Indeed, what is known as the “Quds Force” should be renamed “The Legion Anywhere But Jerusalem” because Iran seems more keen on occupying Arab capitals Such as Sanaa, Baghdad, Beirut and Damascus from the liberation of Jerusalem. When Saddam Hussein was besieged, the Iraqi dictator claimed recourse to religion as well, and added the word “God is Great” to the national flag (which is ironic, since the Baath regime was known to be secular).
Consequently, the leadership of the boycott of France campaign suits Recep Tayyip Erdogan perfectly, as the Turkish president suffers due to his aggressive intervention in Libya, Armenia, Greece and Cyprus, in addition to his previous problems with Egypt, the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Russia, the European Union and the United States. Therefore, the popular campaign calling for a boycott of Turkish products can be understood in several countries, while the campaign to boycott French products cannot be understood. Neither President Emmanuel Macron nor anyone in his government is responsible for the detestable cartoons, which caused a lot of offense, but Erdogan And his government is directly responsible for the instability and bloodshed in the countries where Turkey intervened.
According to an analysis published on the Arab News website a while ago, Turkey’s policy headed by Erdogan has shifted from seeking to have no problems with its neighbors to a near lack of its friends, with the exception of Qatar, which supports Turkey financially and funds terrorism and allows the extremist cleric residing in Doha, Yusef al-Qaradawi, to appear On Al-Jazeera TV during the prime period to spread his hatred against Christians and Jews, when he once said: “Oh God, exterminate the treacherous Jewish aggressors … O God, count them and exterminate them one by one, and you will not leave any of them.”
One of the stupid things reported by the current anti-French rhetoric, promoted by Turkey and Qatar, is that it not only makes every French citizen a target, but also exposes French Muslims and their companies to the risk of personal and material harm.
Rather, those who use religion for political gain, stir hatred, and incite them to learn a little about the faith they claim to profess. And the Prophet’s hadith narrates about mercy that when the Prophet Muhammad tried to seek refuge in the people of Taif, and they responded by throwing stones at him until he bled, then the angel Gabriel and the “angel of mountains” offered him to demolish the mountains on the heads of those who had offended him, but the Prophet, (PBUH) refused, and chose To forgive them.
We find this patience in the heart of Christianity as well, as Jesus, during the Sermon on the Mount, clearly and openly rejected the idea of ”an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth”, saying to his followers: “He who strikes you on your right cheek, turn him to the left.”
Today we are living through difficult and dangerous times, and we need these lessons of forgiveness more than ever.
