Cheese and cosmetics: Stores in Muslim countries boycott French products - FRANCE24

Over the last few days, more and more countries in the Middle East have called to boycott French products

 That call was reiterated on October 26 by Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. The political row started when French President Emmanuel Macron pledged to defend the right to caricature the Prophet Mhammed in the name of freedom of expression. 

Videos taken in Qatar, Jordan and Kuwait show empty shelves in supermarkets after companies withdrew French products in the wake of his comments.

"We will not give up our cartoons," declared Emmanuel Macron on October 21, during the tribute ceremony for the teacher Samuel Paty, who was murdered on October 16 after he had shown a cartoon of the Prophet Mohammed to his students. Macron's vow to protect the country's cherished secular values ​​at all costs provoked anger across the Muslim world.
