Benzema became the talk of the whole of France after the statement of Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin, who stated that he had notorious links with the Muslim Brotherhood.
“I am calling for the deprivation of Karim Benzema of his citizenship,” appeals French senator Valerie Boyer. This is the result of the footballer’s links with the Muslim Brotherhood, as reported by the head of the French Interior Ministry.
The above-mentioned organization was founded in 1928 in response to the collapse of the Ottoman Empire. Its activities were supposed to be strictly peaceful, but it has long been involved in armed conflicts and has been accused of terrorist activities. Moreover, the organization does not recognize the existence of Israel. The confusion around Benzema was probably caused by the recent events in Israel. This is probably why the name of the player and information about his connection with the organization came from Darmanin’s mouth.

As well as the fact that Benzema paid tribute to the victims of the Gaza Strip, without having previously expressed similar condolences after the Hamas attack.
Now Senator Boyer from the center-right Republican party wants to strip Benzema of his citizenship and take away the Ballon d’Or.
“If, as the Minister of the Interior claims, Karim Benzema is ‘linked to the Muslim Brotherhood’, I am asking for sanctions, in particular the deprivation of his citizenship. Urgent action must be taken against those who constantly threaten our country,” Boyer writes on Twitter and calls for taking away the Ballon d’Or for 2022 from the striker!
