    From Morocco to Pakistan, leaders have called out Emmanuel Macron for his defense of the right to blaspheme, Gulf States even launching a boycott of French products. They say the president unfairly stigmatized Islam after two recent terrors attacks. Macron who used blunt words last week at the national tribute for Samuel Paty, the French middle school teacher beheaded after a civics lesson on free speech that included cartoons of the prophet. It spiraled into a social media campaign calling for his sacking, supported by a Paris area mosque which has since been shut.

    1. Amazing. France is in the wrong for condeming a murder. What!
      Islamists want to take away freedom of speech from the West. What’s next on their list.
      With out the beheading this would not have happened. I’ve not heard any condeming of the act by Muslim countries?
      It’s Islam’s fault for producing young men that have no sense of perspective, who think murder is better then allowing some pictures to be shown.
