From Elsewhere: Faking Imam vandalised his own mosque
Here’s another ‘attack’ that turned out to be anything but.
From the French Newspaper La Republique des Pyrenees
“The police opened an investigation after the discovery of offensive tags made of green paint on the end of October mosque Pau Avenue Buros.
No track had been successful. Wednesday, the author came spontaneously to denounce police (perhaps remorse?): This is the Imam himself. Employee of the religious association, this man in his fifties would have done so in the context of a settling of scores.
He is summoned to court on January 8 for an appearance on plea bargaining.”
It is this sort of ‘self-inflicted wound’ case which cause scepticism about claims of a ‘massive increase in Islamophobic attacks.’
