The Mosque of Amontillado

Last week, during the dead of night, someone — possibly heterosexual white-skinned patriarchal racist xenophobic neo-Nazis — bricked up the entrance to a mosque in Germany.

Many thanks to Nash Montana for these two brief translations. First, from Politically Incorrect:

Mosque entrance cemented shut in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern

Last week on Thursday night unknown persons cemented shut the entrance to a mosque in Parchim (Mecklenburg-Vorpommern). They attached Erdogan’s quote, “The mosques are our barracks, the minarets our bayonets, the domes our helmets and the believers our soldiers,” as well as the quote: “You call yourselves ‘believers’ — we call you invaders.” The police report from August 28th speaks of “xenophobic slogans”.

The police report:

Property damage to mosque in Parchim

Rostock — On the night of August 25th, a mosque that is used as a community house in Parchim Westring was damaged. Using aerated concrete, unknown persons cemented the entrance shut of a building that was at the time under construction. Furthermore they left flyers stuck to the meter-high wall on which xenophobic slogans were printed. The criminal police are investigating.

A big thank-you to Vlad Tepes for the title of this post.

  1. Oh, the humanity! (Quote, I hope correct, from the commentary on the “Hindeburg” disaster).

  2. Not actually a traditional mosque, but an ordinary and somewhat shabby building that is used as one.
    Btw. like so many it is called “Fatih Mosque” or Fatih Camii (Conquerer Mosque).
    After the epitheton that was given to Sultan Mehmed after his conquest of Constantinople.

    Just think of building or opening a church or just a prayer-room in muslim countries that are named likewise after Isabell of Aragon (Reconquista) or Gottfried of Boullion (1. Crucade).
    Big Trouble!

  3. 2 or 3 weeks ago some activists have done the same to the Green party in Vienna.
    Bricking up the door to their party headquarter. 😉

  4. I would not be shocked if this turned out to be a Muslim-made hoax. They’ve been known to create instances of “islamophobia” to shore up the narrative and their status as victims in order to manipulate the system and popular opinion.

    If it was the work of non-muslims I do not blame them for their frustration. Passive aggressive acts are all that remain available at the moment.

    • I vote hoax as well.

      Mosques in this part of the world have calls to prayer around 10 PM and 3 to 5 AM quite regularly.

      It’s hard to believe that the person(s) that bricked in the doorway would not have made enough commotion to disturb a caretaker who would then call the police.

  5. Obviously illegal, but certainly non-violent.

    I’m sure it’ll be labelled a “hate crime”. It’s certainly the oddest one in a while!

  6. A normal man, would use some bacon between the bricks …definitely a muslim hoax.
