Macron’s Islamophobia unleashes protests in West Bank

TEHRAN, Oct. 28 (MNA) – Protesters took to the streets of West Bank on Tuesday, burning the French flag following the Islamophobic comments of the country’s president.

Anger continues to grow across the Muslim world after Macron publicly attacked Islam in defense of the publication of derogatory cartoons of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

Earlier in October, France led a national tribute to a teacher, who was recently beheaded by a Chechen teenager after showing his class the offensive caricatures.

The president said he would not “renounce the caricatures.” He described Islam as a religion “in crisis” and declared war on “Islamist separatism,” which he claimed was taking over France’s estimated six-million-strong Muslim population.

The comments have angered not only the Muslim community in France, but all Islamic nations, leading to protests, boycott calls and diplomatic condemnations in the Middle East and the broader Muslim world.
