Religious Minorities

Oumma is reporting that the store of a Muslim in Koenigshoffen was vandalized (photos are available on Oumma's site), with swastikas painted on the walls together with the phrases: "Death to Arabs" and "Islam Get Out." In addition, there was an arson attempt at a mosque in Strasbourg on Tuesday. The walls of the mosque were also painted with swastikas and the phrase: "Death to Arabs." Last week, a trash can was lit in front of another mosque in a town 30 miles from Strasbourg, which was also covered with swastikas.

In solidarity with their francophone cousins across the Atlantic, a Quebecois arsonist burnt down the library of a Jewish school. This follows an attempt to burn down a mosque in Ontario last week.
