Libya’s GNA condemns Macron’s slurs against Islam

The member of the Presidential Council of the Government of National Accord in Libya, Mohammed Emmari Zayed has strongly condemned the slurs of French President Emmanuel Macron against Islam, Muslims and Prophet Mohammed.

Emmari Zyed said Macron’s statements were slurs to the religion and worshippers across the globe.

He said Macron’s remarks only degrade him and have zero effect on Prophet Mohammed

He indicated that France’s slogans of freedom and democracy are blotting the real “hypocrisy, prejudice and double standards” it uses in its policies within Macron’s government.

In recent weeks, French President Emmanuel Macron attacked Islam and the Muslim community, accusing Muslims of “separatism”. He described Islam as a “a religion in crisis all over the world”.

This coincided with a provocative move by Charlie Hebdo, a left-wing French magazine infamous for publishing anti-Islamic caricatures, which have drawn widespread anger and outrage across the Muslim world.

The caricatures were first published in 2006 by a Danish newspaper Jylllands Posten, sparking a wave of protests.
