Islamophobia: Molotov cocktail against the mosque in Libourne

(Al-Kanz)

2012 will break all records in terms of Islamophobia. In France and abroad. This summer, the United States experienced an outbreak of attacks against mosques. Islamic Center of Joplin for example, was completely destroyed by arson . Early August, full galley Sikh religious murdered by neo-Nazi killer who took them for Muslims. A few days later, the waterfront of a mosque in Illinois, still in the United States, with a gun shot against one of the walls of the building, and last week, it is a mosque in Oklahoma City which was the cost of a paintball attack .

In France, the increase in Islamophobic acts continues. On the night of Monday to Tuesday, the day of Eid al-Fitr holiday for Muslims after the month of Ramadan, the mosque of Libourne (Gironde) was subjected to a stream of Molotov cocktail.

Located in front of the firehouse, the building was saved from the flames by the immediate intervention of firefighters. Alerted by one of them who had heard “the sound of the bottle thrown against the wall,” firefighters quickly extinguish the fire.

If you are a victim or witness an act Islamophobic, contact the Collective against Islamophobia in France. Do not expect the first deaths.

    Meryem, it is also the case that sikhs are often not mistaken for muslims.

    What evidence is there (as the article claims) that the murderer mistook them for them muslims? The article seems very clear that is what happened, what is its source?

    @Steve
    You said: How do we know the murderer mistook them for muslims?
    Because with their turbans and beards Sikhs are often confused with Muslims. Since 9/11 the number of hate crimes against sikhs has risen dramatically because people keep confusing them with Muslims.
