Posted on 12/13/2015 4:20:53 PM PST by yongin
COACHELLA, California â Holy prayers at a mosque here on Friday were canceled with families gawking behind fire lines after discovering the front of their holy house had become one big fireball.
Late Friday night, authorities announced that they believe the fire was deliberately set, and the local branch of the FBI is investigating as a possible hate crime. In addition, a person of interest has been detained, but not identified. Members of the congregation are blaming GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump for setting the ugly tone that charred their house of worship.
The mosque began to burn at around noon where Jumâah prayers were underway, sending at least four early-arriving Muslims and the imam fleeing for their lives. Luckily, nobody was injured.
One of them was a young, American worshipper who told his fellow congregant Salah Alwishah what transpired.
âHe was inside with three other brothers and he heard a loud thud and the whole entrance and all the walls caught on fire,â Alwishah, 28, told The Daily Beast of the alleged arson attack as recounted by the American member of the mosque. â[The witness] was actually American and Iâve seen him praying there many times. Heâs a brother.â
Alwishah then noted of the diverse mix of Muslims which includes blacks, whites, Hispanics and Asians who attend events at the Islamic Society of Palm Springs.
In recent weeks, thereâs been a surge of anti-Muslim incidents here in the United States. Buzzfeed tallies up 34 such ugly moments since the Paris attacks on Nov. 23. Data compiled by Council on American Islamic Relations revealed as many as 63 acts of vandalism and anti-Muslim sentiments against American mosques and Islamic centers in 2015, the highest since the group began tallying back in 2009, according to a CNN report.

You know what I called one mosque burned to the ground?
Law suit in how many days?
Trump is actually HELPING American-Muslims with his proposals.
If ISIS is prevented from entering the country and we avoid a massive terror attack, it’ll prevent harsher measures being taken against citizen American-Muslims. If the Dems get their wish, it’s total chaos and meltdown of law and order and all bets are off.
I blame Radical Islamic Terror.
Considering the Mosque’s response, I blame them too.
Yup, it was that EVIL HATE-MONGER Donald Trump that caused this. The brutal murder of 14 folks at a Christmas party couldn’t have had anything whatsoever to do with it.
Trump gets blamed for the failure of others. This Muslim swine do not get my sympathy.
I blame the “burned mosque worshippers.” Probably an inside job as they search for sympathy from Americans who don’t like foreigners murdering other Americans.
Too bad, so sad. Oh the humanity.
Won’t somebody please think of the children.
I think I’ll go bake a cake.
I wonder if the Daily Beast will carry follow up reports to this incident.
After the police have a chance to conduct their investigation.
Something tells me no.
How close is Coachella to San Bernardino?
No guys, your hate filled jihad terrorists are to blame for this. Look to your own house.
Apply the same moral relevance Obama uses to blame us for bad events to these Muslims.
They firebombed THEIR OWN mosque.
The PERFECT news story.
This is a twist on ClockMed.
Americans murdered on their own soil by jihadists since 1993, 3000
Muslims murdered on US soil by American opponents of Islam since 1993, 0.
We'll keep you posted.
