Vandalism against Christian sites increased 20% in 2015
Damage, fire, graffiti … The graves and places of worship are not spared. Christian sites in 2015 recorded an increase in violations of the order of 20%. They are numerically the most affected with 810 acts identified.
Muslim places recorded, themselves, an increase of 110% damage – almost all of them to the mosques, not cemeteries. In contrast we see the opposite phenomenon in the Jewish community: synagogues impairments fell by 46% last year, while the cemetery desecrations have doubled. The two are undoubtedly linked: Enhanced protection of places of worship probably bringing the perpetrators of such acts to “defer” Burial.
Anti-Muslim acts tripled ( Note that 3/4 of the “anti-muslim” incidents were “THREATS” and not actual incidents of violence or vandalism, so of the 429 instances 108 involved and act of violence or vandalism, the rest probably involved someone who looked at a Muslim funny. Meanwhile acts of violence/vandalism against Christian sites were 8 times those against Mohammedan sites, albeit in a more target rich environment)
…an increase of 223% between 2014 and 2015, acts to the Muslim community are mounted to 429 last year. In three quarters of cases, these threats and not of actions (violence, vandalism, etc.)
178 of them were registered for the month of January 2015, in the wake of the attacks of Charlie Hebdo and Hyper Hide. The authorities did not find a similar phenomenon after the attacks of November 13.
Anti-semitic Acts show a slight decrease.
There is a slight decrease (- 5%) of anti-Semitic acts in 2015. This decrease, however, needs to be contextualized. Because they remain, by far the most numerous (806 acts). Moreover, this decrease is very relative since it follows a worrying increase (+ 101%) in 2014, especially after the ban on performances of Dieudonné.
