Religion of Tolerance Watch

A church in Turkey is defaced with antisemitic and anti-Christian graffiti:

Police have started an investigation after a suspected group of people defaced the façade of the 1,700-year-old Mor Jacob Syriac Orthodox Church in Nusaybin, in the southeastern province of Mardin, with pro-Islamic slogans.

The offenders allegedly defaced the stone walls of the church on Monday with various slogans, such as “Clear off, bastards,” “Clear off, Zionist dogs,” “Heretics, lay off,” and “Zionist powers, clear off,” in Turkish and, “Allah u Muhammed,” and “Prophet Muhammad, fight the infidels and hypocrites,” in Arabic.

Fortunately the mayor had the decency to condemn this and make a statement of tolerance and respect toward all faiths, something that’s getting harder to find in Turkey under Islamist rule.
