Jordan's Muslim Brotherhood chief urged supporters Wednesday for a boycott of French products in response to allegedly "biased" remarks about Hamas by French President Nicolas Sarkozy. The call came a day after Sarkozy's Mideast tour in which he tried to broker an end to the fighting in the Gaza Strip. Sarkozy blamed Hamas for the Israeli offensive, saying before his Mideast tour this week that the Palestinian group bore a "heavy responsibility" because it broke an earlier truce with Israel. The Brotherhood official, Hammam Saeed, said in a statement released on his group's website that Sarkozy's comments expressed "animosity toward the Arab and Muslim nation."
