Video - French-Tunisian Imam Chalghoumi: European Politicians Have Deserted the Moderate Muslims
In the aftermath of the Paris attacks, French-Tunisian Imam Sheikh Hassen Chalghoumi accused politicians of deserting the enlightened European Muslim youth, who "find themselves face to face with this small deviant group." "We hoped, following the [Toulouse 2012] Merah terrorist attack, to witness more resolve and to see many [imams] deported. We hoped for this, again, following the Charlie Hebdo attack," Chalghoumi said, adding: "I hope this will happen before it spreads and we, the vast majority, pay the price." Chalghoumi was speaking on Al-Arabiya TV on November 27, 2015.
