This definitely isn’t the first, nor will it be the last, Muslim “hate crime” hoax. That’s the thing with most alleged Muslim hate crimes. They’re hoaxes perpetrated and staged by Muslims to make themselves look oppressed. I’ve written about them. You’ve read about them. It’s all part of their propaganda war and culture of victimhood designed for shakedowns of and pandering from American society.
CAIR Strangely Silent About Muslim Hate Crime Hoaxer Tamsir Mendy
This is just the latest (thanks to reader SL who lives in Atlanta, where this happened):
A member of the Muslim community is suspected of setting the fire that occurred at a Marietta mosque Monday night, Marietta fire officials said Thursday.
Tamsir Mendy, 26, a native of Gambia, has been charged with 1st degree arson and is being held without bail at the Cobb County detention center, said Scott Tucker, Marietta assistant fire chief.
Firefighters got the call about 11:30 p.m. Monday night that the Islamic Center of Marietta (Masjid Al-Hedaya) was on fire. When they arrived at the mosque at 968 Powder Springs St., flames were coming from the front and back of the converted house. Firefighters saved the structure, but damages to the facility are estimated at about $100,000, Tucker said.
Mosque leaders said Mendy, who describes himself as a “devout Muslim,” had attended their prayer services for a few weeks, Tucker said.
Mendy was taken into custody around 5:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Marietta Fire Department headquarters. He is believed to have acted alone, Tucker said.
Officials have ruled out the possibility that the arson was a hate crime, and did not provide details on any possible motives for the fire.
“Any possible motives”?! We know what the motives are. Victimhood, shakedowns, sympathy . . . and, possibly, insurance fraud.
Ibrahim Hooper, spokesman for the civil rights and advocacy group known as CAIR, said there’s a “vocal minority in our society promoting anti-Muslim bigotry.”
“Given the recent wave of incidents targeting American mosques, a possible bias motive for this apparent arson attack must be considered,” Hooper said.
Hey, now, that we know it was all a scam, is Ibrahim Hooper responding with an apology to the American people?
Shocker: no. They never retreat, never apologize, never acknowledge the truth, and never tell it.
“Religion of Peace” . . . and Hate Crime Hoaxes.
