Tensions are escalating between France and Turkey. Ankara reacted strongly on Tuesday (October 27th) to a cartoon by its President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, which will appear on Wednesday in Charlie Hebdo, blaming the French satirical weekly for “Cultural racism”.
“We condemn this extremely contemptuous attempt by this publication to spread its cultural racism and hatred.said on Twitter the Turkish president’s chief adviser to journalists, Fahrettin Altun. He presented this publication as a result of “French President Macron’s anti-Muslim program.”
The so-called cartoons are disgusting and they do not have any real sense of human decency. It is obviously a product of the xenophobic, Islamophobic and intolerant cultural environment that the French leadership seems to love for their country.
