This morning, (January 14, 2017) the Islamic Center of Eastside in Bellevue, Washington was burned to the ground by vandals.

There’s a fundraising campaign at Launchgood.com/Bell to help raise funds to rebuild. Please keep the community in Bellevue in your prayers this weekend.

There’s no coincidence here that this happened on MLK weekend. And there’s a direct causation between this hate crime and Donald J. Trump’s laughable smearing of civil rights hero and US Rep. John Lewis as “all talk and no action” – not to mention his stupid assertion that his district is in “horrible shape and falling apart, not to mention crime-infested”, which is just code for “black = criminal”. John Lewsis did more to make America Great in one day on March 7, 1965 at the Edmund Pettis Bridge than Trump will do in a lifetime.

bloody sunday

The dream is alive, but we aren’t there yet. Fight back – donate to the Bellevue community and show them that when they go low, we go high.
