Mohammed Moussaoui

Mohammed Moussaoui (born 1 April 1964 in Figuig, Morocco) is the president of the French Council of Muslim Faith.[1]

As of 2008 he is naturalizing as a citizen of France.[2]

On August 2, 2011 he gave an interview with French radio station RTL, where he stated that there are nearly 150 new mosques under construction in France, and that there are more practicing Muslims than Roman Catholics in the country.[citation needed]

On November 3, 2011 he condemned the November 2, 2011 firebombing of French magazine Charlie Hebdo, saying that it was "an act which can in no way represent the principles of liberty, tolerance and peace that are (our) message", but he went on to regret the "anxious European climate of Islamophobia."
