Europe’s Muslims feel heat of backlash after terror spree in Paris; authorities urge calm

PARIS – Firebombs and pig heads thrown into mosques. Veiled women subjected to crude insults in the street. The Internet awash with threats against Muslims. Europe’s Muslims are feeling the heat of a fierce backlash following last week’s terror attack against French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo.

A climate of fear is taking hold in Europe, as ordinary people increasingly heed rightist rhetoric equating the millions of peaceful Muslims with the few plotting murder and mayhem.

Abdallah Zekri, head of the National Observatory Against Islamophobia, said that in a 48-hour period after the Wednesday massacre at Charlie Hebdo, 16 places of worship around France were attacked by firebombs, gunshots or pig heads — a major insult to Muslims who don’t eat pork.

    I would think that God had well and truly abandoned me if I were “attacked by… pig heads”.
    Obviously they were flying pig heads!

    “…firebombs, gunshots or pig heads…” Pass me a tissue to wipe my tears.

    I have become interested in doing things ‘the olde waye’ and so shall create a pig-head-slinging trebuchet that fits in the bed of a pickup truck. This year’s butchering is just a few weeks away so the ammo will be fresh.

    It is about time there is a backlash. What did they think was going to happen? They are butchering people for NOT BEING MUSLIM.

    “Europe’s Muslims are feeling the heat of a fierce backlash following last week’s terror attack against French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo”.

    And we are supposed to lose sleep over this?

    The Cdn. Press never tires of beating the islamophobia drum.

  • I shouldn’t be surprised if most of these acts commited against them were actually commited by themselves, as a means of turning themselves from the perps into the victims. I suppose, if they don’t like it, they could always go home. Maybe with a little more encouragement, they will.
