The Minister of the Interior thus defended the controversial remarks he had made towards the French striker in mid-October, who had accused the former Real star of maintaining a “notorious link” with the Muslim Brotherhood movement.

“I maintain my point that there is an atmospheric jihadism, a conception which leads towards radical Islam, and there are promoters of this radical Islam. I think he is a great footballer, I have no problem personally against him, but when Mr. Benzema never says a word about the assassination of teachers, never says a word when there are Islamist terrorist attacks in France, I regret it, because it is followed by millions of people. He is not just a footballer, he is someone who is followed by millions of people. »

Relaunched on his controversial remarks concerning the Muslim Brotherhood and Karim Benzema, Darmanin was content to note the absence of complaints emanating from the player’s clan. “He has not filed a complaint to my knowledge. I think I would have known, it’s been several weeks. »
