French Muslim war graves defaced

Vandals have desecrated 148 Muslim graves in France's biggest WWI cemetery, officials have said.

A pig's head was hung from one headstone and slogans insulting Islam and France's Muslim justice minister were daubed on other graves.

President Nicolas Sarkozy condemned the attack as a "hateful act" and the "most inadmissible kind of racism".

About 78,000 colonial subjects of France, including many Muslims from North Africa, died in the war.

The Notre Dame de Lorette war cemetery, near Arras in northern France, is on the site of some of WWI's largest battles.

About 100 police officers have been sent to the cemetery to investigate the incident.

President Sarkozy has called for the rapid detention and punishment of those responsible.

In a similar attack in April 2007, Nazi slogans and swastikas were painted on about 50 graves in the Muslim section of the cemetery. Two men were sentenced to a year in prison for that act.

Muslim rioters have been taking over and destroying things over there for a while now, so it's really not suprising.

Doesn't surprise me. Despicable, but I have a bone to pick.

Islam is a religion not a race. Therefore it cannot be racism. I see this mistake all too often. And of course while the majority of major terrorists are Muslims, a tiny minority of Muslims are terrorists. So people need to grow up.

People need to stop caring about the semantics, it's racism against religion and there isn't a decent word for it, so racism will do.

What about religious intolerance?

I think it's important that you don't overuse the word racism when you've got other words, because you'll become more desentized to it.

Because the term religious intolerance doesn't even begin to describe this event. It isn't religious intolerance. It's something far worse.

Besides, this clearly isn't just an attack on Islam, it's an attack on middle easterners as a race. You think the people who did this diffrentiate between pakistani muslims and sikhs?

How about really stupid and unjustified religious intolerance? I know there's a better word in law for it in swedish, but I can't translate it =/,

I wouldn't say clearly. And no, people who do these things aren't particularly educated.

I've seen an increase in this the last few years.

I saw an American chat show (quite an underground one by the looks of things) and the guest said they hated muslims and the audience cheered. Now i think thats pretty damn disgraceful that for some reason people believe it is ok to do this.

I was another forum aswell and someone was arguing after making jokes such "just don't give them back packs" and "durka durka". I told them it was pathetic and they said well "in the face of terrorism i like to laugh about it you need to stop playing the race card and grow up"

I can see why Muslims feel outcasted and looked-down upon and then turn against the West. Actually, no i can't, but i can see why there are riots in France.

Only a truly disgusting person would do something like this.

I see a lot of stuff like this where I live. It makes me sad that people still see the world this way.

I'd like to know what those morons were thinking when they did that. It was beyond ignorant. It was beyond hateful. Beyond stupid. What in the world do they think they are achieving by vandalizing graves?

And as many people said already, I'm not surprised at all.

Defacing gravestones seems like something a Muslim would do. It saddens me to know that others have stooped to their level.

Now THAT'S racist my friend. People who deface gravestones are Terrorists and not Muslims. Most Muslims are Terrorists, but not all Muslims are Terrorists. Barely a few of them are. And those are all fuc*ing nuts.

Islam is the second most popular religion, so you're basically saying that about a billion people within the same religion are terrorists?

+ 1 exactly.

someone in UK says popedom and they burn effigies of the suspect in question.

someone calls a teddy bear mohammed and they request her execution.

i could go on......

Didn't mean to insult my own religion. :P
What I meant though was based on what you hear everyday on the 'News'. The word 'Terrorist' has been associated with 'Muslim' so much that some can't even make the difference anymore.
