‘’If something makes you and other people happy, that’s what’s important’’

I meant to post this gif ages ago, but it’s never too late to post it now ~


10/15/16:  Bayonne, New Jersey –  A mosque in the city of Bayonne was the victim of an act of vandalism on Saturday, the 15h.  A 20-year-old man named Jonathan Hussey was arrested in connection with the hate-crime.  The words “F*** Arabs!” “F*** Muslims!” and “Trump” were spray painted on the side of the building.

10/15/16:  Garden City, Kansas – A trio of men from Garden City, Kansas were arrested for plotting a terrorist attack on Somali Muslims in Garden City, Kansas.  The plot was thwarted by the FBI, after being tipped off by an informant and the girlfriend of one of the plotters. Curtis Allen, Gavin Wright, and Patrick Eugene Stein are facing terror charges, for attempting to blow up an apartment complex and mosque in the area.

10/20/16 – Fort Smith, Arkansas – Three assailants are being sought in connection with a case of vandalism at the Masjid Al Salam, in Ft. Smith, Arkansas.  The words “Go home,”USA” and “F*** Islam” written on the facility’s sign.  The vandalism occurred early Thursday morning, and one of the suspects is described as a “white man in a baseball cap.”

The Council on American-Islamic Relations had called on the FBI to join the investigation about the vandalism earlier in the day.

“Given the recent spike in anti-mosque incidents nationwide, and the targeting of Islam and Muslims in the presidential campaign, we urge the FBI to add its resources to the investigation of this case,” 

This is horrific and hateful. Whoever did this is obviously racist, but also very ignorant and undereducated. People practicing their religion isn’t the problem in this country, it’s people who think they have the right to use tactics like the above that are. #Hate it!
