According to Fria Tider, the man broke into St. Paul’s Church in central Malmö Sunday night and smashed window panes.
Police received a call at 3am from locals to report the crime and when they arrived the man immediately tried to attack the officers with a stick, before police were forced to use pepper spray to overpower him.
“Police suspect that the man went to the attack on the church because it is a symbol of the Christian faith,” states the report, noting that there some reports the man also shouted “Allahu Akbar” during the crime.
Skåne police say they are investigating the incident as a “hate crime,” although given Sweden’s ultra-liberal treatment of its Muslim population, don’t expect the culprit to receive a very harsh punishment.
Meanwhile, in the italian city of Bologna, the statue of San Petronio, the patron saint of the city, was vandalized by graffiti that read “Allah Akbar” on Saturday night.
The perpetrator has not been caught although authorities are looking at surveillance camera footage in an effort to identify the individual.
The two incidents are unlikely to receive any attention whatsoever from mainstream media outlets in the United Kingdom, who are too busy hyping dubious isolated incidents of alleged racism to demonize Brexit supporters.
