Macron now either has to stick to his principles of supporting freedom of exprssion in a liberal country and deal with the fallout, or backtrack and appease the zealouts into stopping their madness.

In the end, France may just have to accept that as its Muslim population is now so large (8% in 2017 so likely now 10-15% in 2020) that the country has now irrevocably changed and the same level of freedom of expression that once existed in a predominantly Christian culture no longer applies as before.
You are aware that at the very latest since 1938 appeasement has been a dirty word?

By your reckoning, the UK and Switzerland with about 5 % Muslim population, don’t have much longer to go before “freedom of expression” has to be similarly curtailed. Unofficially, it already is.

One point I do agree with: things are going to get worse.
