French Liberal Media Condemns Business Owner Over Muslim Controversy

The owner of Le Cenacle restaurant in Tremblay-en-France near Paris has been accused of Islamophobia on social media and interviewed by police on suspicion of “racial discrimination.”

The owner reportedly refused to serve two veiled Muslim women, stating that “all Muslims are terrorist.”

The following video posted online appears to show two Muslim women being refused service at the upscale restaurant.

A man, who is reportedly the restaurant’s owner, can be heard telling the women: “The terrorists are Muslim and all Muslims are terrorists… they recently killed a priest. This is a secular country and I have a right to an opinion… I don’t want people like you here. Full stop.”

The man has been interviewed by police on suspicion of racial discrimination, Le Parisian reported.

The video quickly circulated online in France. The local Muslim community gathered outside the restaurant this weekend to demand an apology, and some people are even calling for a boycott of the restaurant.

Many people on Twitter and other forms of social media have expressed their anger over the incident using the hashtag #Cenacle.
