Pig's head left at mosque site
<snip>

"VANDALS splashed blood on a wall and left a pig's head at a mosque under construction in the eastern French city of Belfort, a security official said today.

France has Europe's largest Muslim community, numbering about five million, and mosques are occasionally vandalised.

Today marks the festival of Eid al-Fitr, the end of the holy month of Ramadan, when Muslims fast from dawn to dusk.

Eric Krust, deputy chief of public security in the Territoire de Belfort department said the pig's head was left on a windowsill along with splashes of blood on an area five metres long and 2.5 metres high."

"Swastikas and racist slogans were scrawled on the walls of two mosques and another was set on fire last month on the day French Muslims started celebrating Ramadan."

2. This is the equivalent of leaving the same symbol of
desecration at the threshold of a synagogue at Rosh Hashonah. This is terrible.

5. Freepers don't do this...
As a matter of fact Freepers don't do much of anything, really. But you bet they're sitting back cheering it on. Freepers sure do love themselves some skinheads.

4. Rude and intolerant, to say the least. SHAME on whoever did this.
No wonder so many Muslims hate non-Muslims. Talk about poking a hornet's nest with a stick!
