Mosque bombed in Minnesota

160 posts in this topic

NBC News:

An explosion from a bomb rattled a suburban Minneapolis mosque early Saturday morning, authorities said. There were no injuries, but a room in the building was damaged and worshipers were shaken. 

The blast at Dar Al-Farooq Islamic Center in Bloomington happened just after 5 a.m. local time as the mosque was preparing for Fajr, or the early-morning prayer, the Muslim American Society of Minnesota said. 

"Someone threw an explosive device and started a fire in the office of the Imam and President of the mosque," the society said. "The attendees put out the fire."

I bet these terrorists won't be called terrorist by Fox news. I bet repubs on social media will not only deny that it is a terrorist act but they will also feel that it is justified.

Glad no one was hurt.  Hope they catch the person(s) who did it and they are appropriately punished.

It makes you wonder what causes people to think that way.

It's possible but I can't think of any examples of Secretarian violence happening in the US. The Shia v Sunni stuff is mostly exclusive to the Middle East.

In general. Certainly in the middle east. Not so here.

My next door neighbors are Sunni and the ones across the street from them are Shia. So far, no violence. I think they both might be plotting against me by cooking delicious food that I can smell from their respective houses.

My sarcasm was in response to posters who are assuming it was done by a Christian.

No Christian would do such a thing.

"Mohamed Omar, executive director of the Islamic center, told reporters that a witness saw a pickup truck drive away after the device was tossed into the mosque."

Hopefully a tag number or enough detail to capture the coward.
