Back in December we posted about a series of “Islamophobic” incidents in the Corsican town of Ajaccio. After firemen were attacked by culture-enrichers in a no-go neighborhood, local residents took to the streets, entered the Muslim quarter, and proceeded to vandalize an illegal mosque. There were additional angry demonstrations later (see posts here and here).
According to the following report from a lefty French TV network, the anti-Islamic action has ratcheted up a notch, with an attack on a halal business by unknown gunmen using “heavy weapons”.
Many thanks to Nathalie for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:
|0:17||You will remember that a Muslim prayer room was vandalised in Ajaccio between Christmas and the new year.|
|0:22||This time, a butcher’s shop located in the town centre, Guillaume Chièze,|
|0:26||has been sprayed with bullets shot from heavy weapons, with about 30 bullet rounds found in the shop window,|
|0:30||but fortunately there were no casualties. The shots were fired last night in a busy commercial street in Propriano .|
|0:34||There were no witnesses. The gendarmerie are there,|
|0:38||and are examining the window of the butcher’s shop as well as the kebab shop next|
|0:42||to it which was also sprayed with bullets from heavy weapons. The owner of the kebab shop,|
|0:46||whom I was able to contact, describes an atmosphere of tension and violence|
|0:50||against the Muslim community. The mayor of Propriano talks of “stupid racism”.|
|0:56||So far nobody has claimed responsibility for the attack; there were no inscription on the walls.|
|1:00||You will remember that this butcher’s shop was previously targeted in a similar attack|
|1:04||two and a half years ago, when it first opened.
