A Mosque in Alberta, Canada has been brutally vandalized!

Last night, vandals defaced a mosque in Cold Lake, Alberta, smashing its windows and spray-painting the building with a hateful messages. This is truly sad and disturbing!

Edmonton Journal’s Paula Simons, reporting on the issue stated, “The beautiful little mosque in Cold Lake was vandalized last night. Windows broken. Disgusting, hateful graffiti. Northern Alberta’s Muslim community is a century old. Merchants and fur traders from Lebanon and Syria were some of the north’s original pioneers. Edmonton was home to North America’s first purpose-built mosque. Muslim Canadians are our neighbours, our friends, our colleagues, our leaders, our fellow citizens. This kind of hate and bigotry, this kind of cowardly terrorism, aimed at a minority community, is un-Canadian and un-Albertan. And today, all Albertans should have the guts to stand up and say so.”

Like most of us, Vermibus believes in a world free from the inundation of perfect airbrushed faces flashing us with flawless smiles physics-defying complexions. Garden-variety defacement is one weapon people utilize to fight back, but Vermibus prefers a more ironically poetic approach: turning the beautiful faces inside out and revealing the true ugliness lurking within. Aye kay aye: truth in advertising.
