There is no telling who did this. It could have had nothing to do with Islam. Or, in light of the curious fact that the head and fingers were severed, the perpetrators could have been Muslims acting upon this Qur’an verse: “When your Lord inspired to the angels, ‘I am with you, so strengthen those who have believed. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieved, so strike upon the necks and strike from them every fingertip.’” (Qur’an 8:12) Also, Muslims have committed similar vandalism in many churches worldwide.
