The imam confessed that he did this in order to “settle scores with others at the mosque.” That seems a strange way to settle internal disputes, however. Graffiti found on Muslim installations generally casts suspicion on “Islamophobes,” which is why Hamas-linked CAIR and other Muslims have not hesitated to stoop even to fabricating “hate crimes,” including attacks on mosques. CAIR and other groups like it want and need hate crimes against Muslims, because they can use them for political points and as weapons to intimidate people into remaining silent about the jihad threat.
The article below is a Google Translate version of this French article, but it is clear enough. “Imam Who Vandalized Mosque with “Racist” Graffiti Fined €1000 and Given Thirty Days to Leave France,” from Halal Pork Shop, January 24 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):
The woes of the former imam of the mosque in Pau, dismissed for vandalizing the mosque late October continues: Moroccan national, Khalil, who turns 47 next month (1), is now the subject an obligation to leave French territory.
The prefecture has signed on 6 January an order “refusing to renew his residence permit.” A decision that came two days before the appearance of Imam justice: recognition of guilt, Khalil was sentenced on January 8 1000 € fine for tags of the mosque.
To understand the prefect’s decision, we must remember that the temporary residence permit granted to the Imam – marked “employee” – was granted in November 2009 because he was holding a contract with the Association of the Mosque of Pau. She had been renewed annually. But on December 10, the Mosque association Pau wrote to the prefecture for “to report the termination of his contract of employment as a result of deliberate damage committed on the walls of the mosque.”
The representative of the State points out that “the temporary residence permit may be refused to any alien whose presence in France constitutes a threat to public order” and that the title “authorizing the occupation” is issued “to foreign holder of an employment contract. ” This is no longer the case.
The decree of January 6 also states that “the administrative authority has not disregarded the best interests of the four minor children (sic)” the imam (born in 1997, 2003, 2006 and 2008) and his wife is lawfully in France: “This measure is not intended to separate children from their parents, or to make it impossible to continue normal schooling outside France, particularly in Spain, where officially the family lived until 2011. ”
The prefecture has granted a period for voluntary departure of thirty days.Then Imam “will be away from office to the country of his nationality or any country in which it establishes legally permissible, including Spain, where he has a residence permit marked permanent “.
Contacted yesterday, Mr. Thierry Sagardoytho, counsel for the imam, said he would file an appeal to the administrative court.
