Thousands of People in Sweden Show the Right Way to Respond to Islamophobia
A mosque in the city of Eskilstuna had been firebombed on Christmas day, injuring five worshippers inside. A few days later, a second mosque in the southern city of Eslov was damaged in a fire that police say they suspect was also arson. And on New Years day, a mosque in Uppsala was hit by a molotov cocktail, but did not catch fire.
The day after the Uppsala mosque was attacked, local residents “love bombed” it, covering the entrance of the building with paper hearts and messages of support.
