Former Real Madrid striker, Karim Benzema denies ‘having links with terrorists’ after France’s Interior Minister alleged he’s ‘notoriously’ connected to the Muslim Brotherhood

Written by on October 19, 2023

Former Real Madrid striker, Karim Benzema is reportedly considering legal action after denying allegations linking him to a terrorist organization.   The French forward, who penned an 86million per year move to Saudi Arabian giants Al-Ittihad this summer, was accused by France’s Interior Minister of having ‘notorious’ links to terrorist organisation The Muslim Brothers this week.  The allegations were made after Benzema took to social media to express his anger about the ongoing conflict between Palestine and Israel.  Benzema, a devout Muslim of Algerian descent, said he was praying for Palestinians who were suffering from Israel’s ‘unjust bombings’.  ‘All our prayers for the habitants of Gaza, once again victims of these unjust bombings that spare neither women nor children,’ he wrote on his Twitter X account.  The former French international was then called out by his country’s politicians on Tuesday night, as Interior Minister Grald Darmanin claimed on the CNews channel: ‘Mr Benzema has notorious links with the Muslim Brotherhood.’  The Muslim Brotherhood was officially classified a terrorist organisation in 2021 after Austria banned the group under the new anti-terrorism law adopted by its Parliament in July of that year.  According to Le Parisien, Benzema’s lawyer has revealed that they are considering taking legal action against the politician for both defamation and manipulation while in a position of government.  The lawyer told the French newspaper: ‘We are considering proceedings against this minister in application, for example, of the law on the manipulation of information dear to our government… and defamation or even public insult, because this non-existent link with the Muslim Brotherhood, which he says is notorious, is obviously presented as derogatory.’   It is claimed Benzema is also planning to take legal action against French MEP Nadine Morano, who also attacked his tweet by saying that it exposed him as an enemy of Israel.  Morano told CNews: Just by writing that, he is an agent of Hamas propaganda because Hamas has a strategy to physically destroy Israel, but also to destroy Israel through international public opinion. The post Former Real Madrid striker, Karim Benzema denies ‘having links with terrorists’ after France’s Interior Minister alleged he’s ‘notoriously’ connected to the Muslim Brotherhood appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.
