While you might think/hope this was done by French counter-jihadists, there is a strong possibility it was done by Muslims themselves to evoke sympathy from local government and their leftist neighbors.
Graffiti and Celtic crosses have been found on a mosque in Villefontaine in the Rhône-Alpes region of France. It reads: “Islam Out of Europe” and “This is our home”. Similar graffiti was found on the walls of a Catholic boarding school in the same street.
In a statement, the rector of Lyon mosque denounced a new “upsurge of violence against French citizens of the Muslim faith”, and called for a “peaceful demonstration” at 3 pm tomorrow in front of the targeted mosque.
