France Faces Islamic Terrorism
French President Emmanuel Macron promised to maintain French values of freedom, which protect the right to parody the prophet Muhammad. This after three churchgoers were murdered in France by Islamic terrorists in late October. Macron’s statement caused an uproar among certain Muslim communities globally, especially in Jerusalem where hundreds of Muslims protested at the Temple Mount and burned French flags and pictures of President Macron.
The attack at Nice came during a major debate in France over the republication of the Mohammad cartoons by satirical newspaper, Charlie Hebdo. These Muslim refugees who come to Europe knowingly entering into a western society where free speech is valued, are willing to kill and be killed over caricatures of Muhammad. What’s most sad is one of the men killed was a devoted church goer who spent much of his time feeding refugees. Be sure to keep France in your prayers.
