French Masjid Vandalised With Anti-Islam Graffiti

Recommended Posts

AFP - Vandals have targeted a French Masjid in a graffiti
attack, tagging the worship centre with swastikas and anti-Islam
slogans, officials said Sunday.


The attack was discovered by worshippers arriving for morning prayer
at the Masjid in Ozoir-La-Ferriere, a small town 35 kilometres (20
miles) east of Paris.


Photographs of the Masjid show at least two swastikas painted on the
facade, as well as an explicit anti-Islam slogan and "Long Live Gaul,"
the ancient Roman-era name for France.


Police were investigating the incident.


In the eastern city of Besancon, two Masjids were also vandalised,
where the Star of David -- commonly used by the Nazis to identify Jews
-- had been painted on the walls.


Sources close to the enquiry however cautioned the vandalism was not
necessarily triggered by anti-Islam sentiment, and said investigators
were looking at several leads including whether it was carried out by an
unhappy worshipper.


Interior Minister Manuel Valls condemned the attacks "with the utmost severity" and called them "foul and hateful."


According to statistics from an Islamic monitoring organisation, 201
anti-Islam attacks were recorded in France last year, up 28 percent on
2011.
