Woman arrested in green paint vandalism at Washington National Cathedral
StarTribune.com ^ | 7/29/13 | BEN NUCKOLS/AP

A woman was arrested Monday after green paint was found splattered inside two chapels at the Washington National Cathedral, and police were investigating her in connection with two similar incidents on the National Mall, authorities said.

The woman was arrested in the area of the cathedral shortly after the paint was found, Assistant D.C. Police Chief Peter Newsham said. Investigators were hoping to question her about the vandalism on the Mall, including at the Lincoln Memorial, but a language barrier delayed the interrogation, Newsham said.

Perhaps the woman was a minor. Maybe she had no identification and is refusing to talk.

Or not.

Green is the preferred color of a certain religion known for acts of vandalism and destruction. At least it was not acid ... thankful for small favors?!

Her punishment will be as follows: She will receive a free lawyer, a slap on the wrist and an apology that they did speak her language.

Ha, very good

But seriously, my prediction is the culprit will turn out to be a "Palestinian."

Something about that peculiar shade of green:

Sooo, what is this foreign language of the woman? Arabic? African native tongue of half white Hussein? Polynesian from half black Hussein's Hawaii? Iranian dialect? Hamas preferred language, whatever it is - guess they call it Palestinian language?

I am so sick of militant Muslims and their destruction of this country and I'm profiling and I don't care because it's the truth and I believe half black Hussein is one of them, Muslim Brotherhood. Stop celebrating Muslim Ramadan with dinners at the White House. What is this perversity that has taken this country? A perversity it seems that cannot be stopped. I pray almighty God steps in and sweeps this affliction from this country.

I'm a Christian and I'll never be a Muslim, never. If it's convert to Muslim Islam or die, I'll keep my Christianity until my last breath and I know what I just wrote.

Beat me to it.

Bet the language barrier was Arabic, Urdu, Farsi or some other dialect associated with that part of the world.

So, you’re saying that the authorities can’t translate “Stoner”?

Those look like symbols of witchcraft or some kind of paganist religion

Theban

Anglo-Saxon runes (futhorc/fuþorc)

Arabic

Or it could be the rantings of deranged mind who knows !

Yes, because it’s obviously not a Spanish speaker (since Spanish translators aren’t hard to find, and I can’t imagine any Spanish speaker doing this anyway). It could be a speaker of an Asian language, although I suspect enough of them live in DC to make it fairly easy to find translators for them, too.

So that leaves us with ... somebody from a country that likes Islamic green?

You might be on to something there -
 
http://www.colourlovers.com/blog/2007/11/14/colors-of-religion-paganism
 
"Green is the colour everyone immediately associates with Paganism. It is the colour of nature, of trees, and all growing things. It is associated with the Green Man, a symbol of our connection to Nature, and a manifestation of the life-force. Many Pagans also like the colour purple for its spiritual connotations (it is associated with the crown chakra). Interestingly, purple and green were also the colours of the suffragette movement."

It is an impressive place, but for a free people to erect a gargantuan statue of any man and then surrounding it with his words carved into the walls is grotesque and unseemly.

>The paint was splashed onto an organ and on the floor inside the cathedral’s historic Bethlehem Chapel

>green paint was found on the statue of Joseph Henry

Green islamo moon, Bethlehem, Joseph and her green paint under her burka while she mutters allah ackbar. Just a guess.
