Mauritania: Thousands of Muslims Riot, Battle Police Over Qur’an Desecration

Why would four men go into a mosque in Mauritania and throw Qur’ans into a toilet? The story of the desecration seems fabricated, but it has had a lethal effect: one man is dead, and thousands of people are rioting. We have never seen Muslims react with this kind of ferocity, or any kind of serious opposition at all, to jihad violence, despite claims that the terrorists are not true Muslims and have “hijacked” Islam. If the vast majority of Muslims really rejected jihad terrorism, we wouldn’t see riots, but we would see massive peaceful demos, and other manifestations of their opposition. Instead, all we hear is that “Islamophobia” is the problem.

“Ahmed Mohamed” is reporting for the Associated Press — it is now universal mainstream media practice to have Muslims report on stories like this one, apparently to guard against “Islamophobia.”

“1 dead in protest over Qur’an desecration in Mauritania,” by Ahmed Mohamed, The Associated Press, March 3, 2014 (thanks to Sharia Unveiled):

NOUAKCHOTT, Mauritania – Thousands of people took to the streets, clashing with police in Mauritania’s capital after news spread that a Qur’an had been desecrated at a local mosque. A medical official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the press, says a 21-year-old man died after inhaling a large amount of tear gas.

The imam of a mosque, Mohamedoun Ould Mohamed Salem, said four unidentified men entered the mosque in the early hours of Monday, removed four copies of the holy book, and profaned them by throwing them in the mosque’s toilet.

The police opened an investigation, but the news of the desecration spread quickly, and before noon Monday, protesters were burning tires and barricading streets.
