Molotov cocktails made from Starbucks glass bottles were hurled at three sites in Queens last night, including a mosque with 100 people inside, a Hindu Temple and a bodega.
Cops were investigating whether a nearby fire that caused major damage to a private home was also part of the frightening pattern.
One attack damaged the front door of the Al-Khoei Benevolent Foundation on the Van Wyck Expressway in Jamaica at 8:45 p.m.
We were having a gathering tonight, spending some time with members of the mosque after a service, and someone alerted us that there was a fire outside, said Maan Alsahlani, the mosques minister of religion. There wasnt too loud of an explosion, but it seemed that there were like two or three small bombs thrown at the door.
Its frightening, but we have cameras everywhere. We have to worry a little bit, but we have the police here and they will find out who did this.
Cops recovered the Molotov cocktail, which contained an unknown accelerant.
About 45 minutes earlier, an explosive was thrown inside a bodega on Hillside Avenue and 180th Street, damaging the counter. It too, was constructed using a Starbucks bottle.
At 10:45 p.m., two bottles were tossed at a private home, which also serves as a Hindu Temple, on 170th Street near 89th Avenue, cops said. They fizzled out before igniting.
In the incident thats not clearly linked to the Molotov cocktails, a home on 107th Avenue caught fire at 8:10 p.m. and was badly damaged.

Made from Starbucks glass bottles? Sounds like the Occupy crowd trying to use Alinsky’s principals to foment a racial/religious war.
Shades of Kristallnacht?
Expect the UN to get involved and want the Whitey House to declare martial law.
That was my first question. What self-respecting far right-wing radical racist frequents Starbucks? False flag.
Sounds like a ‘false flag’ covert op run by the Dunkin’ Donut’ store opening in the area.
Starbucks bottles are way too tough. They don’t break easily enough.
If it was a redneck ,it would have been a Mason jar.
If it were a black ,a Colt 45 bunker bottle.
That let’s them out. had to be a OWS.
A hindu place too though ? Sounds uneducated.
“Made from Starbucks glass bottles? Sounds like the Occupy crowd...”
It does, but based on NY TV news it was a black guy. I guess he could be an occupier, but still, why the bodega?
Things are going great in Obama’s America, aren’t they? Multiple arsons in LA, now firebombs in Queens.
Meanwhile, the occupier in chief is golfing in Hawaii.
Starbucks glass bottles? Was the candle wick from Pottery Barn? What is this, a designer molotov cocktail?
