Macron dismisses as insignificant criticisms by far-right Italian officials

During a visit to the Egyptian capital Cairo on Sunday, Macron said he “will not respond” to criticism by Italian Interior Minister Matteo Salvini and Minister of Economic Development Luigi Di Maio, both serving as deputy to Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte. Salvini has accused Paris of doing nothing to bring peace to Libya, expressing hope that the French people will soon be free of a “very bad president.” “I am close, with all my heart and all my work, to the French people, the millions of men and women who live in France with a very bad government and a very bad president,” he said in a video posted on his Facebook page. Di Maio has also accused the French government of creating poverty in Africa. Macron, said he “will not respond. That’s what they want (for me to respond)... all of that is of no interest,” adding, “All of this has frankly no importance.” “The Italian people are our friends and deserve leaders who match their history,” he added. Last Sunday, Di Maio also accused the Macron government of "impoverishing" Africa and pushing refugees to join Europe through what he called political “colonization.” In an attempt to prevent a diplomatic rupture with Paris, the Italian PM said on Tuesday that relations between Rome and Paris remained strong. “This does not call into question our historic friendship with France, nor with the French people,” Conte said in a statement. “This relationship remains strong and steady in spite of any political disputes.” Ties between France and Italy have, however, grown frosty since last year, when the far-right League of Salvini and anti-establishment 5-Star Movement of Di Maio formed a coalition. The two populist leaders, who have been campaigning hard for European parliamentary elections, have repeatedly accused Macron of doing nothing to help handle the hundreds of thousands of mainly African refugees, who have reached Italy from Libya in recent years. A source in the French presidential office told Reuters that populist forces in Italy and elsewhere were trying to undermine France as well as Germany, which have played a crucial role in the creation of the bloc.

Islamic Channels are Fading out | Save Them

Islamic Channels are Fading out | Save ThemDonate here: Gofundme: Paypal: **************************************************************************************************************************************** As'salamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh, Dear viewers! As some of you are aware, it’s a couple of months that YouTube has updated its policies by setting the algorithms so that it targets Islamic content and channels. They removed so many Islamic channels from their partner program while almost none of those channels violated any of their policies. With this they try to fade out the Islamic Dawah. Same thing happened to our channel too… It is the third time that our channel is being targeted by YouTube. First they have banned a video worldwide for couple of hours, then they deleted a video with the claim that it violated their terms and conditions while it wasn’t the case... and recently they have demonetized our channel (the only source that could cover a part of our production costs) again by claiming that our content is violating their terms and conditions while in reality we have never promote violence, or produce inappropriate content. It seems like they want to demotivate us so that we stop producing Islamic contents. But by the will of Allah (swt) that will never happen! Indeed production of a professional content needs huge costs and time. A lot of efforts (e.g. providing topics, doing research, providing footage, making narration, recording, graphics, editing & etc...) goes into making only one video. And we alone are not capable of covering the whole costs since we have no more financial source. Therefore we ask you to join and take part in our dawah mission and support our channel in order to continue with even more amazing contents and to help us educate people around the world about the beautiful religion (ISLAM) and make them come closer to Allah (swt). Currently we are unable to create any patreon page due to some problems. But you can donate to the below gofundme and paypal links: For those brothers/sisters who have problem with the donation campaigns for Islamic channels: Just know that Allah is enough for them, it’s about your responsibility for your religion. They didn’t make these channels to make money out of them, for sure if they were looking for money, they would choose some other ways which would make way more money for them. But they chose to serve for their religion. They all try their best and have their own way of presenting the message of Islam… they face huge problems while making those contents which help you and your children. Be with them Support them to spread the truth And be the cause for guidance of masses In Sha Allah In sha Allah your donation will be counted as (Sadaqah Jaariyah) and will get continues rewards since these contents will reach to millions of viewers by the passage of time. If you can't support us financially, please make Dua for us. Jazzak Allahu Khairan, Rational Believer
