From CBS News:
"Fire at Tenn. Mosque Building Site Ruled Arson...Construction Equipment at Site of Planned Islamic Center Torched; Vocal Protests Against Mosque Have Been Ongoing...
The chair of the center's planning committee, Essim Fathy, said he drove to the site at around 5:30 a.m. Saturday morning after he was contacted by the sheriff's department. "Our people and community are so worried of what else can happen," said Fathy. "They are so scared."
Can anyone tell me how, in the face of incidents like this, Muslims are not supposed to view us as hostile, violent enemies? The people who are inciting behavior like this want a holy war and they are doing what they can to get it, for all of us. There are just not any words to describe how abominable the Republican party and its followers have become.
