Benkirane: Macron had to apologize and his talk of “misunderstanding” was not enough

Former Moroccan Prime Minister Abdelilah Benkirane, in a television interview, called on Western countries to work on passing an international law that prohibits insulting religions and prophets.

Abdel-Ilah Benkirane, the former head of the Moroccan government, said Saturday evening that “French President Emmanuel Macron should have apologized to the Muslims in his dialogue with Al-Jazeera.”

In an interview with Al-Jazeera Mubasher, Ibn Kiran added, “Macron spoke about the misunderstanding. This is a positive thing, but it is not enough.”

He continued: “I called Macron yesterday for moderation and apology, and when he did not do that, we are moving in another direction.

He added, “European and Western countries must issue an international law that prohibits insulting religions and prophets, as Muslims have not and will not accept harming their sacred things.”

Earlier Saturday, French President Emmanuel Macron expressed his “understanding” of Muslims’ feelings about the cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

In an interview with Al-Jazeera satellite channel, Macron said, “The cartoons are not a governmental project, but rather they stem from free and independent newspapers that are not affiliated with the government.”

The French President did not explicitly announce his rejection of these cartoons or insulting Islam, days after announcing his adherence to the offensive cartoons.

During the past few days, France has witnessed the publication of insulting pictures and cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad, may blessings and peace be upon him, through the media, and displaying them on the facades of some buildings, which sparked a wave of anger throughout the Islamic world.

On October 21, French President Emmanuel Macron said that his country would not abandon the “cartoons”, which doubled the wave of anger in the Islamic world, and campaigns were launched in some countries to boycott French products and goods.
