Vandals hit French Muslim graves

Vandalised Muslim graves at Notre Dame de Lorette cemetery
The cemetery's Muslim graves have been targeted three times in two years

The graves of as many as 500 Muslim war veterans have been vandalised in northern France, in an attack President Nicolas Sarkozy said was "repugnant".

Gravestones were daubed with swastikas and letters spelling out anti-Islamic slogans at France's biggest military graveyard near Arras in the north-east.

The attack took place on the eve of Islam's Eid al-Adha festival, when Muslims visit the graves of loved ones.

Dozens of police searched the graveyard on Monday as an investigation began.

It is the third time the Muslim sector of the Notre Dame de Lorette cemetery has been attacked.

President Sarkozy called the latest incident "abject and revolting" and said it was "the expression of a repugnant racism directed against the Muslim community of France".

The cemetery holds the graves of tens of thousands of soldiers killed in World War I, including those of 576 Muslims.

The authorities estimated that about 500 graves were damaged. Vandals had sprayed letters on the tombstones which, when linked together, formed anti-Islamic insults, the French news agency AFP said.

The local prosecutor says the damage resembles another act of vandalism in April, for which two young men with neo-Nazi sympathies were later jailed.

One of them had already been jailed for a previous attack on Muslim graves at the cemetery.

Police say security has been reinforced but the site remains difficult to guard.

i am terribly mad when i read this...

respect is something that i firmly hold in my life.....i respect every religions...because i believe in something like 'if you do something good,you'll get the good','if you don't bother it,it won't bother you' and also, 'if you respect that person,that person will respect you back'.....

racism is something i really detest...
disrespect a religion?
i loathe that~

but really,the real world is not like that...human these days are just inhumane...

if there is las vegas,so nothing is impossible...
hope you know what i mean...

but luckily,not all non-Muslim are inhumane like those people who vandal the Muslim graves....

Alhamdulillah for that.

ta then~!
