Criticism of French President Emmanuel Macron continues, after his anti-Islam statements, but this time a player from the French (roosters) team, crowned at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, sent a harsh message to his country's president.
French player Adel Rami (34 years) criticized Macron's anti-Islam statements, saying, "You are throwing us into filth."
Ramy confirmed - in a post on his Instagram account - his rejection of the hostile stances against Islam and Muslims in the country.
He described the insulting caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad, may God bless him and grant him peace - which were published by Charlie Hebdo magazine - as "provocative", expressing his sadness and anger about that.
And he added, "I am French of Moroccan origin. I am Muslim and not a terrorist."
He clarified that those carrying out the attacks in France are not Muslims, and that the politicians in his country do not want to understand this.
And he continued, "Macron! You throw us into filth. France means diversity. I am disturbed by the provocations and drawings of Charlie Hebdo, and by the practices relating to Muslims. Understand."
"I am very sad, this is a disaster," the player concluded.

During the past days, France witnessed the publication of pictures and cartoons on the facades of some buildings, insulting to the Prophet Muhammad, may blessings and peace be upon him, which ignited a wave of anger throughout the Islamic world.
On October 21, the French President said that his country would not abandon the "cartoons", which doubled the wave of anger in the Islamic world, and campaigns were launched in some countries boycotting French products and goods.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan responded harshly to Macron, and called on his people to boycott French goods as well.
The British newspaper "THE SUN" said that Paul Pogba retired from international football with France due to Macron's offensive statements to Muslims, but the Manchester United player denied this afterwards.
