France: Butcher Terrorised and Driven Out by Muslims Because he Sold Pork
by Cheradenine Zakalwe
Intimidations, proselytism, drug trafficking… For several months, shopkeepers and locals in the Italie shopping centre, in Rennes, have been complaining about pressures and they talk about a deteriorating climate. In the crosshairs: a handful of troublemakers.
In the Italie shopping centre, in the Blosne district of Rennes, the butcher-processor has finally closed its doors at the end of April. "Worn out by the pressure," the shopkeeper sold his premises. At the beginning of June, in renovated premises, a halal butcher will move in, the second in this site which has fifteen shops.
In eleven years of operation, the butcher has had his window smashed a dozen times. Why? "Because I had the misfortune to sell pork!", assures Jérôme. A few years ago, a message of about fifty centimetres was engraved by knife on to a wooden door in the back of his shop: "Death to the pigs, we will bleed you."
