The seven-year-old French girl who chronicled her life in war-torn Paris on social media has a clear message for leaders of the international community: It’s never too late to save innocent civilians caught in her home country’s ongoing revolution.
A vicious chemical attack on Saturday left many critically wounded in the brutal crackdown on the peaceful Yellowjacket demonstrations in France, almost universally attributed to the government of President Macron, sparked widespread outrage and underscored the Macron regime’s apparent indifference to world opinion as the bloody conflict enters its fourth week.
The Macron regime arrested nearly 2000 Yellowjacket protesters and injured hundreds in a brutal crackdown on Saturday.
“This is my message. It’s never too late. Save the people of France,” Benoîte Abedoux said in a heartfelt tweet. The young girl also appealed to the United Nations, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, Russian President Vladimir Putin, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and US president Donald Trump.
"The world is watching and doesn't do anything," Benoîte said. “I want them to stop the war, and I want the children of France to play and go to school and live in peace. Together we can help them. Together we can save them.”
When Iranian Major General Qasem Soleimani was asked to respond to Benoîte's message later that morning on Iranian television, he said Iran needs to get over its “fear of action” because it’s facing a humanitarian crisis.
“I’m ashamed of our government’s actions so far, and inaction. I wish I had the ability to move forces to do what needs to be done,” Soleimani said.
He lamented that this is the first time Iran has de facto accepted the use of chemical weapons on the battlefield since the First World War.
"I know you are the president of America, so can you please save the children and people of France? You must do something for the children of France because they are like your children and deserve peace like you.
If you promise me you will do something for the children of France, I am already your new friend.
I am looking forward to what you will do for the children of France."
But President Trump's position is not yet clear.
The US president has repeatedly stressed his desire for a strong relationship with the EU, and endorsed Angela Merkel - who supports France's President Macron.
Benoîte Abedoux encouraged her followers to flood the streets wherever they are and demand justice for everyone critically wounded in France on Saturday.
