Somebody is terrorizing American mosques with drive-by bacon attacks

DC NEWSBy Casey Harper

Islamic rights leaders say a chunk of bacon is the key to a Florida mosque vandalism.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is demanding the federal and state law enforcement to investigate a Titusville, Fla., mosque vandalism as a hate crime after the suspect left behind a hunk of bacon. A video of the incident shows a man with a machete enter the mosque late New Year’s Day. He broke windows, tore down lights and left the bacon near the door of the worship center, which CAIR says is proof his motivations were anti-Muslim.

“People are afraid to take their children back to the mosque … ” Rasha Mubarak, the Orlando Regional Coordinator for CAIR told Florida Today.

It’s important to note that the FBI cut ties with CAIR because it is considered an unindicted co-conspirator in a terrorism funding scheme.

“The use of pork in an incident of this type is one clear indicator of a possible bias motive for the vandalism,” CAIR-Florida Regional Operations Director Nezar Hamze said in a statement.

The bacon attack is one of a string of similar incidents. Multiple mosques have been vandalized in recent months often with pork products left at the scene. Two California mosques were vandalized in December, both hit with graffiti and one with a fake grenade left in the driveway.  Someone left a severed pig’s head at this Philadelphia mosque in December.

Someone wrapped bacon around the door handle of the Masjid-e-Tawheed Las Vegas mosque in December.

CAIR itself reported in April of last year that someone had tied bacon around the door handle of the building for their Edmond, Oklahoma chapter. A CAIR report found that more than 60 American mosques fell victim to vandalism, intimidation, or harassment in 2015, more than triple the number of incidents for the previous year.

“This vandalism of a sacred space comes in the midst of an election cycle that has given us the most public attacks on an American minority in living memory,” CAIR-Philadelphia Executive Director Jacob Bender said in a statement. “Attacks upon American Muslims should be, and must be, the responsibility of all Americans to condemn.”

    I ate some bacon last night. It was delicious.

    With the price of bacon now days, these are truly dedicated terrorists.

    Maybe these incidents wouldn’t happen if muslims made any attempt to eliminate the “radicals” in their midst. Oh yeah, didn’t at least one “incident” turn out to be a muslim trashing his own mosque? Hmmmm.

    We need to condemn attacks on Christians and Jews. After all, Christians founded this Nation, for freedom from theocracy, primacy of any religion (muslims assert “rights” over Christians, Jews, have demanded rights & privileges denied to Christians…….) Muslim students who got admission to Catholic university (dept of ed demanded) now are “offended” by the Crosses in the classrooms and common areas and want them removed……..

    Read somewhere that all modern explosives contain glycerin and something else both of which contain something from pigs.That means all those suicide bombers went to muslim hell.

    The question was answered. It was not a judgment, just an explanation to answer the question. Methinks thou doth protest too much. Over the top righteous indignation, irrelevant to the answer to the question.
    Some of it is still true, but Catholics are not going around beheading anyone, nor are protestant Christians. Still, some people, like bo want to cite the Crusades and the Inquisition as equivalent to the never ending violence of the start and continuation of islam.
    I am well aware of English names and their history. Most of the colonists were English. I have an English surname. I also have Germanic “royalty” names in my ancestry, also Cherokee and blacks in my ancestry.
