Macron will not apologize for colonialism.. How will the Algerians respond?

Last August, Macron visited Algeria, and that visit helped put bilateral relations back on track after the crisis sparked by statements made by Macron in October. 2021 and charged in “Military political system” Algerian created “memory rent” He also questioned the existence of an Algerian nation before colonialism.

This improvement will not last long, as it is expected that the Algerian regime’s reaction to Macron’s recent statements will be strong, and these statements will not go unnoticed, because Tebboune and his regime know the extent to which the Algerians are clinging to the issue of apology, and any retreat in this file will have great consequences for his rule..

It is expected that the Tebboune regime will stop security and intelligence coordination with Paris, and disrupt some French companies operating in Algeria, in addition to halting negotiations on supplying gas to France to overcome the fuel crisis that France is experiencing..

This will represent a major blow to the French economy, which is burdened with crises, and to the status and influence of Paris in North Africa and the Sahel and Sahara region. Algeria has many strengths that it can use against the Elysee Palace, as happened with Madrid.

The massacres against the Algerians were not only within Algerian soil, as they also reached Paris, five months before the end of the Algerian war, in 17 October 1961, Street Transformation “Saint Michel” In the French capital, Paris, to the scene of one of the most heinous massacres in contemporary Western European history, where thousands were killed and missing, about thirty thousand were arrested, and about twenty thousand of them were deported to Algeria, and others were placed in detention centers..

All these crimes, and Macron did not see a reason to apologize for them, which makes it difficult for relations between the two countries to improve, as it is difficult to turn this page and build a normal relationship between the two countries before France apologizes for its crimes..

The issue of France's apology for its colonial past in Algeria is considered at the core of bilateral relations and the recurring tensions between the two countries..
Also a condemnation of a role “kinetic”And they are the Algerians who stood by France against the independence of their country, without forgetting to compensate the families of the victims of colonialism, similar to what Italy did with Libya and Germany with the Jews, which explains the official French refusal to apologize or even just delve into the issue..

In addition, Paris is clearly aware of the weakness of the Algerian authority, which does not have enough strength or popular support to make it impose such a demand on it. The regime has done little to force France to apologize, and it has not even enacted a law criminalizing colonialism..
future relations between the two countries

In view of what Macron declared and his insistence on not apologizing for his country’s crimes against the Algerians, it seems that reconciliation is not possible between the two countries in this field at the present time. committed in their country during the era of a century and a half of colonialism.

Colonial France excelled in committing many massacres against the Algerians, including using the country as a nuclear test field between 1960 And 1966, and the use of chemicals such as plutonium in carrying out its nuclear tests led to the emergence of several cancerous, skin and respiratory diseases for the residents of the areas that witnessed these explosions, which many Algerians described as brutal and classified as crimes against humanity..

France also deliberately stole the skulls of many Algerians and kept them in cardboard boxes inside iron cabinets in a secluded hall in a museum. “Human” Away from public view, the secret of the skulls' existence was not revealed until March 2011 After the movements of the Algerian researcher Ali Farid, the judge residing in France.

Crimes do not stop here, on the day 8 May 1945, murdered 45 A thousand Algerians in massacres committed by the French occupation after the end of World War II, when the Algerians came out to demand independence from colonial France.
Macron had previously admitted the responsibility of the French army for the killing of the mathematician, Maurice Audin, and the national lawyer, Ali Bumengel, during “Algerian war of liberation” 1957, and his denunciation of”Unjustified crimes” Committed by the French army during the massacre of Algerian demonstrators in Paris in 17 October 1961, but he saw no reason to apologize.

Macron also assigned French historian Benjamin Stora, who was born in Algeria, to prepare a report on the memory file, but the report prepared last January did not include any recommendation for an apology to Algeria, contrary to the expectations of the Algerians..
The right handcuffs Macron and other reasons

Despite his recognition of France's colonial crimes, Macron did not own up to it – The winner months ago for a second and final presidential term – The courage to announce the apology, because he is still shackled by his alliances with the right-wing movement, whether within his party represented by about 60 deputy or outside.

Macron is afraid to apologize, as he is trying to place himself within a safe zone, in order to preserve his alliances with the right, especially since his party did not win a majority during the last legislative elections, and without the votes of the right, he will not be able to pass any law in Parliament..

Not apologizing also refers to other issues, as an apology is not just a word said, but rather several measures entail, including abandoning the law glorifying colonialism, which was adopted in 2005, and removing the names and statues of figures who played a criminal role during the colonial era in Algeria..

Also a condemnation of a role “kinetic”And they are the Algerians who stood by France against the independence of their country, without forgetting to compensate the families of the victims of colonialism, similar to what Italy did with Libya and Germany with the Jews, which explains the official French refusal to apologize or even just delve into the issue..

Algerian President Abdelmadjid Tebboune often appears to his people, to confirm that his country will not forget the file of national memory, especially with regard to its apology for the French crimes committed against Algerians, the nuclear explosions in Revan, the archive file, and the issue of missing persons during the colonial period..

More than once, Tebboune called on his French counterpart, Emmanuel Macron, to apologize for what colonial France had done in Algeria, so that relations between the two countries would improve and return to their previous era, as part of the Tebboune regime's efforts to return to the regional arena with force..

Tebboune, like many Algerians, waited for Macron to apologize for the crimes of French colonialism that had been committed for so long 132 year (1962-1830), especially since he is the only French politician who described colonialism as “A crime against humanity”.

Macron confessed to some crimes and visited the families of some of the victims of the French repression machine, in an attempt to bypass this issue and focus on developing relations with Algeria, as the latter is very important to Paris in the North African region and the brown continent as a whole..

Relations did not improve much, despite the mutual diplomatic visits, and Algeria's pressure to obtain an apology, until this file is closed, and if an apology alone is not enough, more than a million martyrs fell victim to the brutality of French colonialism..
Macron will not apologize

What he meant inwardly and alluded to in the past, Macron said this time openly and explicitly, as the French president confirmed that he would not ask “apologies” From Algerians about France's colonization of their country, and in an interview conducted by the Algerian writer, Kamel Daoud, and published weekly “Le Point” French, on Wednesday evening, said Macron: “You don't have to ask for an apology, that's not the point. The word will cut all ties”.

Macron continued:: “The worst that can happen is that we say we apologize and go our separate ways”He explained that the work of memory and history “Acknowledgment means that there are things that cannot be described, things that cannot be understood, things that cannot be proven, things that may not be forgiven.”.

Франция в свое время очень много поимела с колоний, но ни копейки практически не вложила туда, бросая бедные африканские страны на произвол судьбы и лишь кошмаря их своим военным присутствием. Поэтому не удивительно, что сейчас эти страны стремительно сокращают военное присутствие французов, также стремительно наращивая военное и экономическое сотрудничество с Россией, помогающей им как в преодолении гуманитарного кризиса, так и повышая мощь правительственной армии, борющейся с разного рода вооруженными формированиями.
