Misrata’s Demonstrators Copy Erdogan’s Insults to Macron and Praise Hitler – Al Marsad

Several Libyan cities witnessed demonstrations on Friday against the Prophet Muhammad cartoons. However, as usual, the maliciousness and political exploitation of this issue surfaced by the minority represented by the “extremist Islamist political and revolutionary current” far from the feelings of protest and sincere popular anger for the Prophet.

(Libya, 31 October 2020) – Demonstrations took place in Tripoli, Msallata, Zlatan, Zawiya, and other cities, on rejecting abuse against the Prophet and stressing the unacceptability of his disparagement through the abusive cartoons. The demonstrators affirmed that attacks on the sanctities of others are aspects of racism and not expressions of free speech as stated by all religious and moderate scholars and backed by the majority of Muslims.

However, as usual, the maliciousness and political exploitation of this issue surfaced by the minority represented by the “extremist Islamist political and revolutionary current” far from the feelings of protest and sincere popular anger for the Prophet. Some of these were outrageous enough to justify the terrorist attacks in France that took place in reaction to the cartoons even though they tarnish Islam rather than serving it.

TURKISH FINGERPRINTS

Slogans raising pictures of Hitler and repeating Erdogan’s insults to Macron

Apart from the spontaneous slogans expressed in reaction to the abuse of the Prophet, the most prominent was the coordinated slogans that appeared in the demonstration in the city of Misrata under the protection of the Ministry of Interior of Fathi Bashagha, bearing what appeared to be Turkish fingerprints as a message to France stating “We Are Here”. Signs repeated and supported the insults directed by Turkish President Recep Erdogan to his French counterpart, Emmanuel Macron, even before the abusive cartoons crisis due to the Mediterranean gas crisis, that he was “mentally ill”.

Slogans also glorified Nazism and its leader Adolf Hitler. Some demonstrators raised a picture of Hitler during his occupation of the French capital Paris in June 1940 during World War II.

The glorification of Nazism is a legal taboo in Europe, the United States, the Arab countries, and even Germany itself, the home of the Nazi leader and founder of the Nazi movement.

It also seems that those who raise this image ignore that Hitler’s occupation of France was the beginning of his end and a path to Paris towards victory and permanent membership in the Security Council

Less than four years after Hitler’s occupation of France, the French forces, backed by the Allied forces, defeated him after the famous Normandy landing, which was the largest landing in history so far.

The battles of the landings ended with the expulsion of Germany and the escalation of the war up to the Nazi failed attempt to invade the Soviet Union, then defeating Hitler who paid a heavy price for that image raised today in Misrata and the end of the war with France becoming one of the five great powers and Germany of the semi-demilitarized countries.
