On April 15, 215 Christian gravestones and crosses in the cemetery of Saint-Roch de Castres (Tarn), France, were damaged and desecrated (see pictures below). Thanks to onsite cameras and information given by a cemetery employee, a man fitting the description was detained and hospitalized on the assumption that he is insane. According to Charlotte Beluet, the prosector:
The suspect, arrested at 12.45 on Thursday, matches the description given by a witness, a cemetery employee, who came across the man dressed in a white djellaba [Arab/Muslim garb], and followed him. We found clothes matching the description in his home, in the same district as the cemetery and the Muslim prayer room….
The man repeats Muslim prayers over and over, he drools and cannot be communicated with: his condition has been declared incompatible with preliminary detention.
So he was hospitalized on the assumption that he is “mentally unbalanced.”
Incidentally, the image of a “drooling” — or foaming at the mouth — man violently destroying crosses brings to mind the following remark made by Winston Churchill:
How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism [Islam] lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia [rabies] in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy.
Around the same time this man was desecrating the cemetery in France, the Islamic State published pictures of its members destroying Christian tombstones and crosses in cemeteries under its jurisdiction — and quoted Islamic scriptures justifying its actions.
