The Regional Council of the Muslim Faith of Alsace announced the discovery of racist inscriptions and a Christian cross on the wall of a mosque under construction. The racist graffiti, which reads ‘French for the French and ‘100% pork’, was discovered by a mosque member in Illzach, Alsace, and is suspected to have been painted upon over night. The Regional Council of Muslim Faith of Alsace has filed a complaint while its national body, the French Council of the Muslim Faith (CRCM), strongly condemned the act.

The act stands in correlation to a general rise of racism, Islamophobia in particular, in France which is reflected in an incline of racist graffiti painted on dozens of mosques since the beginning of the year.
