http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/ottawa/story/2012/01/05/ott-gatineau-mosque-vandalism-graffiti.html


A mosque in Gatineau, Que., that has been a target of vandalism was spray-painted with graffiti overnight.


Workers at the Outaouais Islamic Centre awoke Thursday to discover
swear words and derogatory references to Arabs and Allah spray-painted
in white.
The vandals painted messages on the front doors, across the building's side and on two other entrances to the building.


The mosque had earlier been vandalized Monday morning when windows
were damaged and someone attempted to set fire to two cars in the
parking lot.4th incident in 6 monthsMosque secretary
general Amadou Thiam urged police to do their utmost to find the
perpetrators. The mosque has turned over security video footage to
police.
Gatineau police said they believe the lone man in his twenties caught
on camera in the latest incident was also responsible for the earlier
vandalism.
Police said it was the fourth incident in the last six months. Graffiti was spray-painted on the front door and two back doors of the mosque. (CBC)


Thiam said the vandalism was a "provocation" and called on members of
the mosque to remain calm. Thiam also urged Gatineau city officials to
show their support for the mosque.Muslim, Jewish groups condemn attackThe
Canadian Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-CAN) condemned the
vandalism Thursday and said authorities should investigate the incident
as a hate crime.
"The repeated vandalism, within days of the previous attack, of this
specific mosque is deeply troubling. Attacks on all our nation's houses
of worship must be condemned by all Canadians and should be investigated
and prosecuted using all available law enforcement resources," said
Ihsaan .


Jewish Stars of David were also spray painted on the walls.


Shimon Fogel, CEO of the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs, also condemned the attacks.


"We unequivocally condemn all acts of vandalism committed against any place of worship," Fogel said in a statement.

Mosque member says he isn't taking attack personallyThe
mosque, located off Saint Joseph Boulevard just north of St. Jean-Bosco
Park, draws about 500 people for Friday prayers and serves a community
estimated at close to 5,000 people.
Mosque member Walid Ali said he didn't think the incident was a hate crime.


"Maybe someone was drunk or something, I don't think he deeply means it," said Ali.


"I've been here more than three years and this has never happened," he said.

  • Reminds me of the Obama campaign workers who scratched racial slurs in to their own vehicles. Or the Clinton campaigners who broke their own office windows.

  • That's what you get for posting videos on youtube with your spokesmen insulting your host countries, disrespecting their laws and dishonoring their culture. One must be frickin braindead to not expect this to happen sooner or later.

  • The problem isn't a mosque or even Arabs, the problem is their ideas in our land. Attack those ideas, not some building.

  • I have to agree, this one looks like it may be a flase flag geared at generating hostility towards jews. Reason being:

    -No real damage to, or attempt to inflict real damage against a mosque.

    -When do these attacks ever carry a pro-jewish message? Ususally they're just anti-muslim.

  • Muslims' comments can be summed up as: "unbelievers are drunk dogs, please remain calm until we are in sufficient numbers".

    I hope the next time it'll be a firebomb

  • fair enough, but only if the mosque teaches radical Islam.
    Otherwise, it should be respected as a place of worship.

    Those who did it are morons, although the feeling can be uderstood. as long as Islam in the west doesn't police itself, this is going to get worse

    • @the_MEK

      Radical islam? All islam is radical. Moderate islam is by definition, not islam. Read what the Koran and hadith have to say about poeple who do not take up violent, active followership of islam's teachings. "Moderates" are described in the hadith and koran as "hypocrites" and considered infidels.

    • @Ham_Sandwich27 - The Koran does not make a Muslim.

  • A hate crime?
    Have you ever read the Koran?
    The Muslim religion is a hate crime.
