Re: Bad News for Europhiles

Emanuele, the Austrian election has already ushered in that special brand of ugliness that characterizes the European Right.

Police are blaming far-Right extremists for desecrating a Muslim cemetery in Austria, in the same weekend that the political parties of the far-Right made huge gains in the country’s general election.

More than 90 graves were severely damaged at the cemetery in Traun, near Linz, some time between Friday night and this morning, in what police believe was an organised action.

The offenders sprayed Jewish symbols such as the Star of David over some of the graves, but detectives believe that this may have been a bid to disguise the motives of extremists driven by a hatred of Muslim immigrants.

Austrian Jews might want to be on the lookout for crescent and star graffiti on the graves of their loved ones.
