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.

I bet these Islamists burned their own Mosque so they could play the multicultural pity game.
I think about an hour drive?
Coachella has a local branch office for the FBI?
I wonder why Obama’s state-controlled “media” isn’t this concerned about the hatred and religious persecution that the Christians have had to endure in this country since 2009. This is some weird stuff. It appears that the liberals think religion is okay as long as it is the Islamic religion. I’ve yet to see any commie libs mocking Allah. HYPOCRITES!
CAIR is assembling a database of real or perceived hate crimes against Muslims, which they will give to the media and Loretta Lynch.
If Trump is the nominee, don’t be surprised if Loretta Lynch launches investigations against Trump supporters.
They’ve got the meme going. Media obliges. Typical.
Don’t believe these lying maggots.
I agree. What Trump wants to put in place would help keep the 'bad' guys out. It would protect Americans.
Isn't that what these people in the Mosque want , as ...Americans ? To be protected ?
Don’t blame Donald Trump. Burn another mosque!
Mosque = Islamic Arsenal and Training Center.
Something stinks. A “person of interest has been detained but not identified”. Why????? My guess is it’s a muzzie. FBI must consult with White House to get the story spun & narrative all straight before they announce to the public.
........ Wouldn't it be nice if the Muslim community actually realized that they do have a serious image problem ...... and would actually set out to change and improve that negative image instead of demanding that people embrace their negative image as being good.
..... Yup ... wouldn't it be nice.
Maybe it was part of a takeover attempt by a rival Muslim sect ?
Who says the people in this mosque are innocent? There were others involved in this.
...Carl James Dial, of Palm Desert, is charged with five felonies, including arson and commission of a hate crime...
Lieberals think religion is okay as long as it is not a real religion. Both "religion"s of islam and warmism come to mind.
No charges yet against the lesbian gym teacher who Tweeted for people to burn down Christian owned Memories Pizza in Indiana.
Even when it was said it was being investigated, no official mention was ever made that it was a hate crime.
So according to the aggrieved Muzz, the problem is Trump, not Muslims’ propensity toward jihad and misuse of mosques toward that end, that begets violence. That indicates a simple solution: when Trump leaves the scene, if he does for whatever reason, problem solved.
Wonder if the daily beast had the same level of outrage at the attacks in SB, Paris, Chattanooga, Little Rock, Ft Hood, oregon, NY, DC, Mumbai, Kenya,Spain...well, you get the picture.
If the insurance companies had a lick of sense, they'd check to see how many of these burned out mosques were paying up their policies just hours before the alleged fire bombing occurred.
