Supporters of gay marriage in France include some Muslims
by Rajia Aboulkheir
Thousands of French have expressed their support for gay marriage in France by signing a petition created last week by two Arab activists, an effort they say is a part of their struggle for a country where all citizens are equal.
"All the French Muslims who have signed the petition are approving gay marriage," Tewfik Allal, a Muslim immigrant living in France since 1967 and initiator of the petition, told Al Arabiya News.
"All of the signatories defend homosexuals just like they support equality between women and men, black and white, Muslims and Jews … equality for everyone," Allal added.
