Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has called on Turks to boycott French goods amid a row over France’s tougher stance on radical Islam.

In a televised speech, he urged world leaders to protect Muslims “if there is oppression against Muslims in France”.

Mr Erdogan has angrily criticised French President Emmanuel Macron for pledging to defend secularism against radical Islam.

It comes after a teacher was killed for showing Prophet Muhammad cartoons.

Samuel Paty was beheaded on 16 October by 18-year-old Abdullakh Anzorov outside Paris, after presenting the images to his pupils during a class about freedom of speech.

Mr Macron has paid tribute to Mr Paty, and said France “will not give up our cartoons”.

  1. I could think of a thousand way to explain free speech without attacking a religion, race or gender. Imagine if he said Blacks should be enslaved to showcase free speech. Nonetheless, choosing Islam in a country with a large North African population is really a stupid thing to do and that only makes extremists radical fundamentalist Muslims happy.

  2. France has finally taken the necessary steps to rid itself of radical Muslims. If you are are peaceful Muslim. You and your Mosques are welcome in France. If you are a radical murdering Muslim. You will be deported back to the desert where you came from. Freedom of speech will always be the right of a free society.
