Will 2013 be a record year for alleged mosque ‘attacks’ in France?

motahari20100930133247200Attempted arson attack on Thiers Mosque is the 8th alleged mosque attack since the beginning of the year. As in most of these types of cases, the perps will never  be identified. That’s because many of these minor acts of vandalism are self-inflicted by Muslim ‘victims’ looking for sympathy from the police and community.


al-Kanz The website Lamontagne.fr reported yesterday that one or more individuals tried to set fire to the boiler room of the Thiers mosque .

Rags of gasoline were found on site, which leaves no doubt about the desire to destroy the mosque, said the site. As was recommended by the specialist mosques website, Trouvetamosquee.fr, the Turkish association that manages the building has “put surveillance cameras and systems of protection.”

Last October, swastikas were recorded on a disused building located in a parking lot in front of the Thiers mosque. These Nazi tags were removed just before the prayer of Eid al-Adha.
