Pork-filled Envelopes Sent to mosques
Islamophobic acts, jokes in bad taste or overtly racist provocations? In the past few days, mosques in several regions of France, received by mail envelopes containing pork. Some mosques, such as the one in Mulhouse, decided to lodge a complaint.
You will find below the list of mosques that have been documented to have received pork packages. It is very possible that more envelopes were sent to other mosques without it having been made public for the time being.
1 – 2 February 2013 : A Meximieux, in Ain, an envelope containing ham was discovered in the mailbox of the place of worship. A week later, the mosque received a Islamophobic letter, reported in February the site progress .
2 – End of February 2013 : At Mulhouse, As-Salam mosque receives an envelope full of pork.
3 – 5 March 2013 : A Mulhouse, An-Nour Mosque in turn receives an envelope with ham inside.
4 – 7 March 2013 : The imam of the mosque of Brest Sunna said it had received an envelope containing pork.
5 – March 2013 : the mosque of Mandelieu-la-Napoule, near Nice, received an envelope with ham inside.
6 to 8 March 2013: the mosque run by the Muslim Association of the Alpes-Maritimes, Nice, receives an envelope with pork slices

8 – In March 2013, the mosque of the Fraternity, in Aubervilliers (93), received an envelope with pork.
In all likelihood, it would be the same person or the same group of people responsible for these mailings. We will return to what we believe, reinforces this track. In the meantime here is an interesting shot of a website belonging to the fachosphère:
Finally remember that such acts have been encouraged for years by the French extreme right. In the 2000s, the site-Echos.com France called on its readers to flood the mailboxes elected as favorable to the construction of a mosque, in Toulouse in 2006 , or such other deemed too conciliatory towards Muslims .
Other action of these popular Islamophobic online: send leaflets to neighbors of an alleged dangerous Islamist to inform the immediate danger that lurks or pasting posters near future mosque to prevent the worst. These actions were – and still are – called “SITA action”, that is to say action ‘awareness of Islam in all directions “).
They are now relayed sites including: http://www.actionsita.com http://sitamnesty.wordpress.com and still active unlike the name less Islamophobic Bivouac-ID disused site since May 2012 or its equivalent in ignominy Islamophobic site Occidentalis. That’s right.
