Why #boycottfranceproducts is trending on Twitter?

Calls to boycott French goods are growing in the Arab world and beyond, after President Emmanuel Macron criticised Islamists and vowed not to “give up cartoons” depicting the Prophet Mohammed.

The French head of state spoke during a tribute to Professor Samuel Paty, beheaded by an Islamist assailant after showing his 4th-year students drawings of Muhammad during a course on freedom of ‘expression.

Followed by Macron’s statement, in Qatar, the distribution chains Al-Meera and Souq al-Baladi have announced that they will “withdraw” French products from stores until further notice. In one of Al-Meera’s stores, an AFP correspondent saw employees removing St. Dalfour brand jams from shelves.

The University of Qatar also announced on Twitter on Friday the postponement of the French cultural week following “the deliberate attack on Islam and its symbols”.

The Gulf countries, notably Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates, represent an increasingly important market for the exports of the French agri-food industry.
