Erdogan Calls for Boycott of French Goods, Amid Radical Islam Crackdown

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan told Turks to boycott French goods as France cracks down on radical Islam on their home soil.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan told Turks to boycott French goods as France cracks down on radical Islam on their home soil.  

“As it has been said in France, ‘don’t buy Turkish-labelled goods’, I call on my people here. Never give credit to French-labelled goods, don’t buy them,” said Erdogan on national television. 

The crackdown in France came after the brutal killing of a French school teacher at the hands of a radicalized Chechen refugee.

Erdogan has also criticized French President Emmanuel Macron for pledging to defend secularism and tackle radical Islam earlier this month.

During the weekend,  Erdogan’s called Macron and told him to undergo mental checks, which led to Paris to recall its envoy to Ankara.

Aside from the stance against radical Islam, Erdogan condemned the raids on mosques in Germany and Australia and said that they “are a signal flare to a particularly dangerous process that produce very grave results for European Muslims.”

Boycotts of French goods are already being done in Qatar and Kuwait while there are also calls to reject French products in Jordan and other states.
