Besançon mosque graffiti August 2013

Le JDM reports that yesterday an SS sign, a Celtic cross, an Odal rune and the words “Vive la France” were sprayed on the wall of the Es-Sunna mosque at Besançon in eastern France.

The mayor of Besançon, Jean-Louis Fousseret, condemned the attack and declared that the mosque had a record of promoting a message of “tolerance, openness and fraternity”.  The prefect, Stéphane Fratacci, visited the mosque to pledge the “solidarity and support of the state”.

The mosque was subjected to a graffiti attack in February, when a Star of David was sprayed on the wall.
