French President Emmanuel Macron, who has commenced a war against radical Islam, is being trolled globally and criticized in many countries of the world for waging a decisive battle against Islamic terrorism following the assassination of a school teacher, Samuel Paty.
The French President clearly stated that there is no longer a place for radical Islam in France. This has irked those countries that consider them to be the leader of the Islamic bloc and they have started opposing France. Today, Hashtags like Boycott French products and Boycott France trended on social media.
Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan also criticized the French President and even questioned the mental state of his French counterpart. This led to tension between the European Union and Turkey.
Several EU officials harshly criticized Erdogan’s comments and the European Commission today said that the Turkish leader should change his approach if he does not want to derail the bloc’s attempts at renewed dialogue with his country.
