An unknown person or person put pig parts on the door handle of a mosque in Austria, and a predictable rush to cry “hate crime” about the incident ensued. However, given that the recent “attacks” on mosques in Fresno, California (vandalism by paint and bleach) and Eskilstuna, Sweden (a kitchen fire) turned out to have been caused by Muslims themselves, one has to question whether the same may be true of the Austrian pig-distributor.
In his post about the incident, Vlad makes an important point:
Given that the two recent ‘attacks’ on mosques were both initially reported as hate crimes but then turned out to have been done by members of their own congregations, one in Sweden and the other in California, it does beg the question as to whether or not this was a self-porking job.
In case anyone is interested, the scientific term for self-porking is autochoirosis. Onomatopoeically speaking, of course, it’s sui generis.

|00:24||The mosque and the annex are managed|
|00:28||by the Turkish-Islamic Union (ATIB). The religious feelings|
|00:32||of members were (allegedly) deeply hurt.|
|00:36||Half a pig’s head and a pig’s stomach|
|00:40||were found on the door handles by members arriving for early prayers.|

|00:56||I live … (unclear)… I never had problems|
|01:00||in Austria, but lately, I don’t know, but|
|01:04||I am satisfied with Austria, I have to say. The initial scepticism|
|01:08||from neighbours against the building of this mosques|
|01:13||had fully disappeared after the “open days”, we are told. We believe this|
|01:17||was not done by neighbours, but other bad people (German very broken).|
|01:21||The mosque managers refuse categorically to speculate about possible perpetrators|
|01:25||or political backgrounds. They’ve lodged a complaint with the police|
|01:29||for incitement to hatred, discrimination and offences against|
|01:33||religious feelings. The police are examining all circumstances.|
