“It is the Quran that must be read!” shouted the 37-year-old Muslim after he stormed into local landmark St Vincent’s Cathedral of Chalon-sur-Saôn.
More tolerance and outreach from our religious betters. Respect it, islamophobes!
Muslim Man in Court for Threatening to Blow Up French Cathedral for Not Reading Quran
by Chris Tomlinson, Breitbart, 3 May 2018:
A 37-year-old male identified only by his first name, Ahmed, was brought to a court in Chalon-sur-Saône accused of threatening to blow up a cathedral with a hand grenade.
On Saturday, the 37-year-old barged into local landmark St Vincent’s Cathedral of Chalon-sur-Saône and while intoxicated and carrying a bottle of alcohol he yelled: “It is the Quran that must be read!” He then said that he had a grenade and would blow up the church, local news website Info Chalon reports.
The court, which was presided by a tribunal of judges, saw Ahmed ask for a delay in the proceedings to mount a defence, rather than be judged on the day of the hearing.
‘Ahmed’ has a long history of criminality with 27 prior criminal convictions including three cases of death threats and seven convictions for theft.
When confronted with his prior criminal history, Ahmed told the court this week: “I was in a bad period where I was a little lost, I had a certain malaise.” The judge retorted: “It’s a period that has lasted.”
Father Thierry de Marsac, who heads the Roman Catholic parish of Saint Vincent, said that everyone in the cathedral at the time remained calm but he expressed he was concerned at the time, thinking of the brutal murder of Father Jacques Hamel who was killed by radical Islamic terrorists in 2016.
