Riyadh, Saudi Arabia – Is France at war with Islam and its Muslims ? President Emmanuel Macron has launched a nationwide crackdown on so-called ‘Islamism’ following the beheading of a teacher. A mosque has been ordered shut and dissolved. It follows dozens of raids on Muslims and Islamic organisations suspected of inciting hatred.
Support came from Saudi Arabia for the immoral attitude of the French leader Macron who attacked Islam and spread insult to the Prophet Muhammad throughout the country, France. World Islamic Union General Secretary El Isa in Riyadh, advisor to Prince bin Salman, said, “Muslims should not speak out to their practices in the countries where they are located. “We are against anything that could harm the stability of France.”
Saudi Arabia is an ally of France, with strong economic, military and political coordination on many topics and the relationship has been called a global strategic partnership. Meanwhile, Islamic human rights scholars depict that the Saudi Arabia’s stance with France is openly pictured in Surah al-A’raf, 7, 179th verse in the Holy Quran:
وَلَقَدْ ذَرَأْنَا لِجَهَنَّمَ كَث۪يرًا مِنَ الْجِنِّ وَالْاِنْسِۘ لَهُمْ قُلُوبٌ لَا يَفْقَهُونَ بِهَاۘ وَلَهُمْ اَعْيُنٌ لَا يُبْصِرُونَ بِهَاۘ وَلَهُمْ اٰذَانٌ لَا يَسْمَعُونَ بِهَاۜ اُو۬لٰٓئِكَ كَالْاَنْعَامِ بَلْ هُمْ اَضَلُّۜ اُو۬لٰٓئِكَ هُمُ الْغَافِلُونَ
While Muslim communities around the world are reacting to the explicit targeting and insulting of Islam and Muslims in France, Saudi Arabia is not shy about announcing its support for French President Macron’s fight against “Islam.” On October 2, Macron’s statements that “Islam must be structured to be a partner of the Republic” under the name of fighting “Islamist” ideas, as well as the reaction from the entire Islamic world to the fact that the insult to the Prophet Jesus was made by the state and targeted Muslims after the murder of a teacher in recent days, Saudi Arabia supported the French administration.
Don’t question the law
In an interview with Riyadh’s MBC channel, Mohammed bin Abdulkerim Al-Isa, Secretary General of the Saudi-based World Islamic Union (Rabita), urged Muslims not to listen to the practices of countries in which they are in a minority.
Known for its proximity to Crown Prince Mohammed bin Selman, and an adviser in religious matters, Al-Isa, the Muslims of the country from the practices, laws and institutions laws and institutions to question this practice by requiring the security and stability of the country was supplying, suggested that social cohesion strengthened.
Don’t let imams come from outside
Al-Isa advised Muslims living in these countries to perform their religious worship in respect of legal frameworks, while he argued that imams from outside should grow up in the countries where they serve, claiming that they consider their culture part of religion.
French full of confidence
Rabita’s official Twitter account also shared numerous messages and statements labeled “separatism.” Al-Isa expressed “full confidence in the French authorities that they will make the necessary efforts to end the violence,” the statements said, adding that “the French nation has shown its strength by United against anything that could harm its security and stability.”
The messages of the secretary-general of the nexus, in which he encouraged openness for a more peaceful world and inter-faith dialogue (FETO Tactic), were also interpreted as “support for the French government’s program to fight Islam”.
Al-Isa had wanted to visit Charlie Hebdo magazine last year, which published cartoons insulting the Prophet Muhammad, but was not allowed.
