Vendôme: Turkish community targeted with racist and fascist graffiti

CROIX GAMMEE arrière EPICERIE ex charcuterie  des RottesDes Dômes Et Des Minarets reports that on Sunday night a number of Muslim-owned buildings in the town of Vendôme, in the Loir-et-Cher department in central France, suffered graffiti attacks.

Swastikas and racist slogans (such as “I love Whites”) were sprayed in black paint on the walls of a mosque and Turkish restaurants and cafes. Around a dozen examples were found, all in the same paint and handwriting.

This isn’t the first time that the Turkish community in Ven has been targeted by racists.  “The last time was in 2012, just before the presidential elections”, Adil Dunadar, president of the Association Sportive et Culturelle Turque, is quoted as saying. “The front of our place of worship was graffitied with ‘I love pork’.”
