Fears of anti-Muslim backlash as police investigate possible arson attack on French mosque

An arson attack on a mosque has raised fears of an anti-Muslim backlash in France as anger mounted over the gruesome murder of an elderly priest by two teenage Islamists.

The fire appeared to have been started deliberately just before dawn at the site of a mosque in Toulouse, police said. No one was hurt.

    Why are they surprised?

      I am completely flummoxed! 🙂

    There will be war.

    What the West needs most is a real backlash against Islam.
    Some would call it a Crusade.

      The last time that Europe was rescued from Tyranny, Eisenhower dubbed the campaign Operation Crusade. Seems even more appropriate today.

    Could there be more than one religion of peace???

    I suspect this is fake. Why would anyone visit a mosque “just before dawn” for this purpose? It’s well known this is the time for the morning prayer (Fajr), so people are likely to be about.

      Really good point.

    Maybe feminist Trudeau can fly over there for a selfie in support. Just like he did for that mosque in Peterborough that burned to the ground and thousands killed.

    An eye for an eye; an iman for a priest.

      Most people who believe Western Civilization is at risk would say that we are BEYOND that point already.

    Not backlash, proper self defense and restoration of the Christian Europe, might need a new Pope though.

    I’m officially sick of this scum and global cancer. Zero in Nukes on Mekkah and the put these 10 the century savages on notice to stop the slaughter or Mekkah become a sheet of glass.
    Muslims managed to get a mosque in the Valley Park public school and they won’t stop there.
    They know that terrorism works to get their way , plus our leaders go along with it even if it kills us .
