From Creeping Sharia:

Eurabia. And crickets. Imagine if the suspect was an infidel? via Sunni arrested in fatal arson at Shia mosque in Brussels – The Globe and Mail.
An arsonist’s attack on a Shia mosque in a Brussels suburb that left its 46-year-old imam dead provoked shock and grief among Belgium’s Muslim population on Tuesday, but the authorities there attributed the attack to tensions between the Shia and Sunni communities – not a new case of the so-called Islamophobia hostility that has been rising in Europe.
The victim, identified by Belgian media as Abdallah Dadou, a father of four, died while attempting to extinguish the blaze, which was set late Monday night at the mosque in the Brussels suburb of Anderlect. Earlier a man who identified himself as a Muslim had approached the building carrying an axe, a knife and flammable liquid that he spread in the mosque, setting fire to it, officials said. The mosque was heavily damaged.
Joelle Milquet, Belgium’s interior minister, condemned the attack but said that authorities had for the most part discounted the idea that it was motivated by anti-Islamic hate groups. Rather, she said, it appeared to be “a problem between Sunnis and Shiites,” according the website of Le Libre Belgique, the Belgian daily newspaper. “But I remain cautious because the judicial authorities still need to confirm a number of things,” she said. Sunnis comprise the overwhelming majority among immigrant Muslims in Brussels. Jean-Marc Meilleur, spokesman for the prosecutor’s office in Brussels, said the suspect, who was apprehended by local people who turned him over to the police, was awaiting formal charges.
Mr. Meilleur said that the suspect had declared himself to be a Muslim, had given several identities and appeared to be in his thirties but did not have any documents to prove he was Belgian or legally in Belgium. A mosque official, Azzedine Laghmich, was quoted by Agence France-Presse as saying the attacker was a Sunni who had screamed Sunni slogans.
Moral of the story: end immigration from and funding for any sharia-adhering country. Let them fight amongst themselves.
