Vandalize A Place Of Worship, Get Thrown Under The Jail

This sort of thing is unacceptable in America,

The words “Center of the party of satan” were painted in Arabic on the front wall and back door of the Karbalaa Islamic Education Center on Warren on Wednesday in the fourth episode of vandalism in the mosque, where mostly Shi’a Muslims from Iraq worship.

“I don’t know what happened, my friend, but whoever is doing this has to be stopped,” said the leader of the mosque, Imam Husham al-Husainy.

The vandalism, in dripping red paint, was discovered at about noon and reported to police, according to Husainy and Dawud Walid, executive director of the local chapter of the Council on American Islamic Relations.

“The mosque has been vandalized so many times, they’ve basically given up on law enforcement, given up on telling anyone,” Walid said.

…”Now we worry about our imam,” said Ali Edriss of Dearborn, a member of the center. “We worry someone might hit him or kill him. Maybe next time they’ll shoot someone. It’s scary.”

The incident is one of a series of recent instances of vandalism at local mosques. Some businesses owned by Shi’a Muslims along Warren have been vandalized, and the owners say they believe they were targeted by Sunni Muslims after the Shi’a Iraqis celebrated the execution of Saddam Hussein.

The community of Shi’a Iraqis in the area of Greenfield and Warren, surrounding the mosque, are immigrants who arrived after the Gulf War, when they challenged Saddam’s regime, only to face persecution. They have parted with many other members of the local Arab community in their ardent support for the overthrow of Saddam’s regime in the invasion led by the United States.

Anybody who targets a church, synagogue, or mosque in America with vandalism, should be hit with every charge the prosecutor can think of, and put in jail for the absolute longest period allowable by law.
