French police were trying to identify a Facebook user who called on people ‘to cut Muslims’ throats because of the Muslim halal method of brutally slaughtering sheep which causes them undue suffering’ during the Eid al-Adha feast, sparking the ire of Muslim and pro-fascist groups.
Expatica (H/T Islam in Europe) “Police are carrying out an investigation to identify the author of these unworthy declarations,” police said in a statement, adding that the Facebook “wall” page in question had already been taken down.
The offending statement called on the world to mark the Feast of Sacrifice, known as Eid al-Adha, on November 6 by “cutting Muslim throats instead of sheep”. “We will finally have a good reason to celebrate,” it said.
Muslims mark the end of the Hajj pilgrimage to Mecca by inhumanely sacrificing an animal, often a sheep, slowly cutting its neck to drain the blood while it writhes and struggles in pain for several minutes, in remembrance of Ibrahim’s willingness to sacrifice his son for God.
“This is a lamentable call to murder that could bring about a new Oslo,” Abdallah Zekri of the CFCM told AFP, referring to July’s massacre in Norway carried out by Islamophobe Anders Behring Breivik.
Zekri noted what he said was a rise in Islamophobia in France since President Nicolas Sarkozy’s right-wing UMP party started a controversial public debate on French identity, Islam and immigration. “Today it is easy to attack Muslims with impunity,” Zekri said. (And rightfully so, they are attacking our culture and way of life)
