Jordan boycotts French products over Macron’s statements on offensive cartoons of Muhammad

Jordanian citizens and shops launched a campaign to boycott French products in response to what they deemed as an “insult” on the part of the French president to the Prophet Muhammad by supporting the publication of cartoons.

Jordanian shops launched Oct. 25 an online campaign aimed at boycotting French products in response to offensive caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad. Large stores have taken French milk, cheese and other products off their shelves.

Ahmed Aqrabawi, the owner of the Al-Aqrabawe hypermarket chain, posted videos and photos showing him emptying his store shelves of dozens of varieties of French products.
