the Cabezo de Torres mosque wakes up with a pig’s head and xenophobic graffiti


Fourth racist attack in the Region of Murcia in less than a month. This time it was in the mosque in the town of Cabezo de Torres. The faithful who have attended the call to the first prayer in the morning, at five in the morning, have found a pig’s head pierced by a knife, painted on the walls in which you can read “Stop invasion” and “No to Islam”, and a flag of Spain in which they have written “The sovereignty of Spain is not negotiated.” The president of the Association of Moroccan Immigrant Workers (ATIM), Sabah Yacoubi, has sounded the alarm this Wednesday after this new attack: “Thank goodness that at that time the children do not go to prayer, look at the panorama that found “.

Yacoubi is “astonished” by the increasing escalation of racist episodes since the death at point-blank range on June 13 of Yunes Bilal in Mazarrón shouting “shitty Moors” after an argument in a cafeteria in the coastal town. “When they ask me if Murcia is racist, and they ask me more and more, I have to answer no; it is isolated groups that are promoting these episodes.” Groups that the president of ATIM does not hesitate to link with the extreme right and the speeches of Vox.

The murder of the young Yunes was followed just five days later by a stabbing attack on an Ecuadorian woman who was heading to the queue of the Caritas commissary in Cartagena. ‘Greaser! They take our food! ‘ were the words with which the aggressor accompanied the attack, according to witnesses, from which the woman has managed to recover.

“This last episode comes with Mimun still recovering at the La Arrixaca hospital,” Yacubi explains. Mimun – according to the testimony of the president of ATIM – was attacked a few days ago at the factory where he worked. “The boss fired a Spaniard because, according to the boss, the ‘Moor’ works better; and the fired employee reacted by hitting Mimun on the head and back with a tool.” They had to admit him to the ICU, “and he’s starting to open his eyes now, but he still can’t even speak.”

A peaceful community

Yahya Zarhouni is an Arabic teacher at the Cabezo de Torres mosque, where he also performs some administrative tasks. On the other end of the phone he is “concerned” about the turn that events are taking in the Region of Murcia. He explains that in this Murcian town there is a large community of Muslims, the majority from Morocco, “and they are very peaceful people, almost all workers in the fields, in factories and warehouses, who only worry about working and raising their family in fear. losing your job or your papers. ”

“The Civil Guard has come this morning and a complaint has already been filed,” says the Moroccan, who rules out that his compatriots respond with violence to the attack. “These acts generate uncertainty, but they are quiet people.”
