PARIS -- The graves of several Muslim soldiers in a cemetery in southeastern France were desecrated over the weekend, officials said Monday. The French president called the act "a slur" on the country's history.

This is not the first times muslim graves have been decerated in France.

On September 24, 2010. Between 20 and 30 muslim gravestones have been damaged and swastikas were drawn on the gravel of the cemetery, in the city of Strasbourg.

This incident reminds me of the one that happend recently in Libya, where muslim extremists descerated a British WW2 cemetery :

That thread turned into a rant against every Muslim on this planet.

So, there you go folks, graveyards rampaged in the heart of civilized and christian France for the 2nd time.

This just proves that there are ignorant and bigoted people in every religion/nation/country, not just the Muslim ones.

Any graves period being desecrated is offensive.

Intolerant people are everywhere, this is something we need to overcome. I am somewhat concerned by the swastikas...I was unaware that Vichy France was back?

British soldiers graves were defaced with swastikas etc in France.

And again here with both anti-British and anti-US slogans and graffiti.

Last week, people honored the Australian soldiers that died in Gallipoli/Turkey during Anzac Day. As you may know, Turkey is a Muslim country, and we Turks have done nothing to their graves, Atatürk (the founder of Turkey and the general that led the war of independence against ANZAC and other troops) even said that the dead ANZAC soldiers are now the children of Turkey, eventhough they fought against us.

Um, you mean Commonwealth Cemetery. Most gravestones remembering Australian soldiers were destroyed. Only 3 remained.

The french are not exactly respectful of the dead muslim or not..
Ask a WWII vetran (if he will share) of the dead from both sides being robbed.
