In the eyes of the Muslim Brotherhood, of which Mr. Recep Tayyip Erdogan is a follower, secularism is the enemy by definition. On the one hand, a literalist conception of Islam, on the other the separation of the political and the religious and the freedom to think about the affairs of the city apart from religious dogmas. On the one hand divine right, on the other the rights of man and of the citizen, freedom of opinion including religious and above all belief in human reason as a collective compass allowing the common definition of the best general interest.

While the rational substratum of the concept of secularism, inseparable from the ideology of the Enlightenment, is increasingly ignored by we, as if secularism could be summed up in a simple principle of neutrality, the Islamists are not mistaken: secularism is the ability to think for oneself put forward by Jean Jaurès and recalled by Emmanuel Macron in his homage speech in the courtyard of the Sorbonne. This is the crime in the eyes of the Islamists, who carry a totalitarian conception of religion as we have known in the West several centuries ago.

And that's why we had to make an example. Islamist wolves prowled in search of an atoning victim. They found Samuel Paty as they could have found many others among the million teachers whose job it is to shed light on the little brains entrusted to them.

France recalls envoy after Erdogan jibe at Macron

  France recalls envoy after Erdogan jibe at Macron France on Saturday said it was recalling its envoy to Turkey for consultations after comments by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan suggesting French counterpart Emmanuel Macron needed a mental health check-up that Paris condemned as unacceptable. "President Erdogan's comments are unacceptable.France and its NATO ally are at loggerheads over a range of issues including maritime rights in the eastern Mediterranean, Libya, Syria and the escalating conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan over Nagorno-Karabakh.

But state secularism is central to France's national identity.

Samuel Paty did not die because of the Prophet's caricatures, he died for having explained what was freedom of speech. He fell a martyr to the school of the Republic, that is to say of the Republic itself. He perfectly embodied the ideal of the black hussars so attached to the school of the Republic. That is why the war that radical Islam has declared on us is a war to the death. Mr. Erdogan, deep inside himself, knows that the secularism of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk is his main opponent in Turkish society. So he attacks French-style secularism by not hesitating to caricature it as an enemy of religion. Nothing is further from the truth. Secularism is tolerance towards all religions as long as the common space is preserved where everyone is free to argue in the light of reason.

Turkish president dares U.S. to impose economic sanctions

  Turkish president dares U.S. to impose economic sanctions ANKARA, Turkey (AP) — Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan challenged the United States to impose sanctions against his country while also launching a second personal attack Sunday on French President Emmanuel Macron. Speaking a day after he suggested Macron needed mental health treatment because of his views on Islam and radical Muslims, Erdogan expanded his range to take aim at foreign critics. “Whatever your sanctions are, don’t be late,” Erdogan said, referring to U.S. warnings for Turkey not to get directly involved in the conflict over Nagorno-Karabakh, where Ankara supports Azerbaijan against ethnic Armenian forces.

Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan has survived as a ruler for decades by adapting his style and persona to the challenges he faces. It was then that Erdogan moved from local to national politics, defying the ban on his political activities and leading a breakaway group from Erbakan’s party.

"President Erdogan 's comments are unacceptable. Excess and rudeness are not a method. We demand that Erdogan change the course of his policy because it is dangerous in every respect," the official was quoted as saying. Erodgan is a pious Muslim who has sought to move Islam into Turkey's

It is this conception that scares Mr. Erdogan. "Secularism," said Jean Macé [the founder of the Education League] in other times, "is the fight against ignorance. "The new obscurantists who are rising on the horizon know that they will find on their way the values ​​of knowledge which secularism allows the blossoming, because secularism is not an opinion, only the freedom to have one. .

Samuel Paty died a martyr of secularism, let us know how to honor him as such and crush with contempt those who do not understand the greatness of his sacrifice.
