more domestic terrorism in Ramadan: mosque in Missouri burned to the ground

A second fire in less than five weeks occurred at a mosque in Joplin, Missouri early Monday morning. The cause of the latest inferno is still unknown, but Monday’s flames were much more devastating than those that occurred July 4, in an incident that authorities later determined was an act of arson.

Video shot by local television news station KSNF on Monday captured massive flames engulfing the building.

Firefighters were called to the scene at the Islamic Center of Joplin around 3:30 a.m., according to KSNF.

The Jasper County Sheriff’s Office told TPM a news conference has been planned for Monday afternoon, and that ATF and the FBI will be involved in the investigation.

The mosque is completely destroyed, though thankfully no one was hurt. Between this and the Sikh shooting, there is a deep malignancy in the American psyche that we have not seen since the days of Jim Crow.

CAIR is offering a $10,000 reward for any information on the fire or the suspected arsonist.

    I’ve noticed in the case of the Sikhs and the masjid burning, there was no mentioning of security. i would think if u are investing monies in buildings u would at least try to secure your own , even if it be by armed patrols.

    when USA was under attack 9/11 we from all faiths showed sadness and wanted those who did what they did to be punished. So why cant these people understand we are also Canadian or US citizens and want peace, we are peaceful people and want to live our lives in peace if we or any one who recites vilance should go back to the country they came from and leave us alone i am a sikh and proud to be Canadian.

    Judge not lest ye be judged!

    No one knows if this was arson yet?

    Yahweh will judge whoever did this if it was Arson, many buildings burn every day all over the country that have nothing to do with Arson!

    “love your enemies” is what Jesus said!
