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.

In the eyes of the Left, Memories Pizza had it coming. Muslims add diversity to America. Diversity is our strength , you know.
Yup. Good point.
Gee, I thought those Muslim ISIS Guys burned People to Death. I didn’t realize Donald Fire Bombed a Mosque.
I must have missed it when I was brushing my teeth.
The War is here. No one wanted it. It’s not clean, no war ever is. We can’t wish it away and it’s not going away.
If it's not a false flag to start with.
Taqqiya. Reichstag fire. False flag.
This is the problem with many muslims. They lack the common decency that western civilization is built on; and what they lack they make up for with aggressiveness.
Isn’t the FBI a totally independent agency?
How we can protect our families? Keep ISIS and Obama's Syrians out of America, now.
When that fails, which it will with the Isis White House and AG office and so many worthless people in Congress!
First thing--get yourself a firearm! Sheriff Ed Galt, Last Man Standing.
Oh, I “blame” Trump, all right.
February 9 can’t come fast enough.
It wasn’t right, but..................understandable.
(That was what many Muslims said after 9/11.)
80 miles from Coachella and San Bernardino.
We live 14 from Coachella and about 70 from San Bernardino.
Loretta Lynch coming to you, boy.
(Are there two uglier persons on the planet, inside and out,
than Lynch and Obama?)
Blame islam. An evil 9th century cult.
They firebombed THEIR OWN mosque.
The PERFECT news story.
This is a twist on ClockMed.”
False Flag, Im sure they removed all firearms and explosives first.
(Are there two uglier persons on the planet, inside and out, than Lynch and Obama?)
Yes Hilliarly Clintoon, Jarrett and Holder the former AG.
It’s a judgement call, very subjective. :)
The muslims in our country cry “Foul!” when they’re attacked because they’ve been led to believe that they would be fully protected while they systematically transform (destroy) our country.
