France: Attempted Arson Attack on Thiers Mosque is Eighth Mosque Attack of 2013

France has an “intelligentsia” that includes high profile deniers of Islamophobia, take for instance the case of Pascal Bruckner, part of the “nouveaux (new) French philosophers,” who has fallen for the line that the term “Islamophobia” was created by the “mad Islamist Mullah Ayatollah Imam Khomeini.”

These “philosophers” and many of their fellow travelers from the French establishment live in a bubble divorced from reality, as they cannot see what is happening in their own backyard (see article below), either that or they just don’t give a damn and are pleased by such acts of violence and intimidation.

Inaugurated in December of 2010, the Thiers mosque might not be here today. The website reported yesterday that one or more individuals tried to set fire to the boiler room of the building.

Rags of gasoline were found on site, which leaves no doubt about the desire to destroy the mosque, said the site. As was recommended by the specialist mosques website,, the Turkish association that manages the building has “put surveillance cameras and systems of protection.”

Last October, swastikas were recorded on a disused building located in a parking lot in front of the Thiers mosque. These Nazi tags were removed just before the prayer of Eid al-Adha.

It is the eighth act against a Muslim place of worship since the beginning of 2013. But according to “media specialists on Islam,” Islamophobia is a figment of the imagination. These acts are as common crime.

Since 2003, the CCIF (Collective against Islamophobia in France) struggles to contain the hatred. Click on the following link or the image below for support by joining:
