As if They CAIR

A mosque has been vandalized in Canada, and CAIR are not happy.

The Canadian Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-CAN) yesterday called on local police to treat the recent arson and vandalism at the Al-Mahdi mosque in Pickering, Ontario as a hate crime.

Vandals entered the mosque, spraying the words “Jesus Rules” on its walls, broke tables and chairs, and set fire to the building. Mosque officials estimate the cost of the damages to be thousands of dollars.

I guess their ad campaign isn’t working too well.

In addition to calling this a “hate crime”, CAIR link it to the recent anti-Semitic attacks in Toronto.

This incident comes after a series of hate crimes perpetrated against the Jewish community in Toronto.

This is all well and good, except for one small detail: at least one of the anti-Semitic hate crimes was apparently perpetrated by a Muslim.

Police arrested Reza Safaei, 46, and charged him with three counts of mischief under $5,000. A close colleague of the man said there must be a mix-up.

Police said Mr. Safaei moved from Iran to Canada in 1987.

It is fair to assume that the hate crime is linked to the perpetrator’s views on Israel. And given CAIR’s views on this subject, perhaps they should be apologizing for creating a climate conducive to these types of crimes, rather than just condemning them.
