Police on Long Island are investigating after someone hung a large painting of Jesus Christ on a fence at a mosque early Friday evening….Investigators are treating the incident as a hate crime.
This example represents a new low: a painting of Jesus left on a fence at a mosque is deemed so offensive to Muslims that it is being investigated by (shariah) police in Long Island as a hate crime, even though “mosque leaders told police that they are not offended by the imagery of Jesus Christ.”
This case highlights that it is Western dhimmis and useful idiots who are largely to blame in surrendering and even escorting the West into the House of Islam. They are so clueless that even the New York branch of CAIR (an unindicted co-conspirator to terror financing) saw the “hate crime” investigation as a golden opportunity to proclaim “unity” between the Abrahamic faiths. A note of review:
CAIR co-founder and Chairman Emeritus Omar Ahmad was named, in the same 2007 Holy Land Foundation trial, as an unindicted co-conspirator with HLF. During the trial, evidence was supplied proving that Ahmad had attended, along with Nihad Awad, the aforementioned 1993 Philadelphia meeting of Hamas leaders and operatives. Moreover, prosecutors described Ahmad as a member of the Muslim Brotherhood’s “Palestine Committee” in America.
CAIR’s foundational and influential members are intricately and extensively tied to terrorist entities. Words of “unity” from any CAIR affiliate should not be taken at face value.
“Painting Of Jesus Investigated As A HATE Crime”, by Eric Owens, Daily Caller, July 9, 2017:
Police on Long Island are investigating after someone hung a large painting of Jesus Christ on a fence at a mosque early Friday evening.
Investigators are treating the incident as a hate crime, reports NBC New York.
The painting is a crucifixion scene showing a largely silhouetted Jesus with his crown of thorns prominently featured. It appeared outside the Hillside Islamic Center in Nassau County, according to investigators.
An employee of the Hillside Islamic Center initially discovered the Jesus painting, reports CBS New York.
Surveillance camera captured video of a man placing the image on the fence, police say.
Mosque leaders told police that they are not offended by the imagery of Jesus Christ, according to News 12 Long Island.
This lack of offense has not stopped investigators from labeling the incident as a potential hate crime.
The New York branch of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), America’s largest Muslim civil rights group, issued a statement urging the person or group behind the painting to learn more about Muslim beliefs.
“Bias may have motivated this incident, but it could serve as a teaching moment for the perpetrator and for the community if it leads to greater understanding of the love Muslims have for Jesus, peace be upon him,” the CAIR statement said.
