Muslims in Europe subjected to a ‘lynch campaign’ like Jews before World War II – Erdogan

Erdogan continued his war of words with Macron following the French president’s hardened comments on radical Islam in the wake of the beheading of teacher Samuel Paty in Paris. Speaking from the Presidential Palace in Ankara on Monday, Erdogan said that Macron was encouraging Islamophobia on an immense scale and indicted other European heads of state for their part.

Macron prompted outrage after declaring that Islam is “in crisis” following the killing of Paty last month. He also accused Islam of “separatism” and said he would not renounce the Muhammad caricatures published by the Charlie Hebdo magazine as he underlined his commitment to free speech.

Morocco’s foreign ministry also condemned the continued publication of cartoons of the prophet, which were projected onto some local French government buildings. The Moroccan statement said the action reflects “the immaturity of their perpetrators and reaffirms that the freedom of some ends where the freedom and beliefs of others begin.”

French products have already been removed from shops in Kuwait, Jordan and Qatar as the backlash against Macron’s comments gathers strength.
