Muslim woman, Aisha Ismael, arrested on charge of first-degree arson, caught on video starting a fire inside her Iowa mosque on fire.
USA Today reported:
POLICE IN IOWA ARRESTED A 22-YEAR-OLD WOMAN SUSPECTED OF STARTING A SMALL FIRE AT AN IOWA MOSQUE THURSDAY MORNING.
Des Moines firefighters and police were called to the Islamic Center of Des Moines about 10 a.m. There had been a small fire on the carpet, according to a Des Moines police report.
The fire was extinguished by the mosque’s staff by the time firefighters arrived.
Security cameras in the mosque showed a woman, later identified as Aisha Ismail, pouring lighter fluid on the carpet and then starting the fire, said Des Moines police spokesman Sgt. Paul Parizek. Ismail was not on scene when police and firefighters arrived, according to the report.
Police arrested Ismail at a west Des Moines apartment that evening. She was booked into jail on a charge of first-degree arson.
There are no indications that this fire was a hate crime, Parizek said. Ismail attended the mosque, he said, adding that her motive for the fire was unclear.
( Daily Mail ) One person has been killed and ten more injured after a white van driver screaming ‘I’m going to kill all Muslims’ ploughed into worshippers near a renowned north London mosque, in the latest terror attack to rock Britain.
A 48-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after the van mounted the pavement and veered into a congregation outside the Muslim Welfare House, near Finsbury Park Mosque, shortly after they finished Ramadan evening prayers.
Heroic bystanders wrestled the suspect – who was clean-shaven with curly hair and wore a white t-shirt – to the floor and pinned him down until officers arrived after he allegedly screamed: ‘I want to kill all Muslims’, and ‘I did my bit’.
At the time of the attack, which was just after midnight, several people were heroically giving first aid to an elderly member of the public who had collapsed at the bus stop with a medical issue.
Today, police confirmed he was the man who had died. Metropolitan Police deputy assistant commissioner Neil Basu said it is not yet known if his death was caused by the attack.
( Milo ) The New Jersey town of Bernards will reportedly be paying an Islamic group $3.25 million as part of a lawsuit settlement stemming from the town’s refusal to offer the group a mosque building permit.
According to The Associated Press, the group – in addition to receiving the $3.25 million – will be allowed to build its mosque.
The Associated Press states that the lawsuit originated last year when The Islamic Society of Baskin Ridge claimed Bernards Township changed its zoning laws to discourage the mosque’s construction.
The Justice Department, which announced the settlement today, also sued the town, stating it was being discriminatory by enforcing more stringent rules related to the number of parking spaces the mosque would need than it places on churches and synagogues.
“Through a spokesman, the township committee denied discriminating against the Islamic Society and maintained the denial of the group’s proposal was ‘based on accepted land use criteria only,’” reports The Associated Press, adding that the Islamic group has used other facilities in the town for years with no issue.
According to The Atlantic, it took 39 court hearings for a settlement to be reached.
In addition to the money and permit to build the mosque, leaders of the town will also reportedly undergo training on religious freedom laws.
Next to Britain and European Union, Canada is the other western country being neutered by Islam. The left is vehement when it comes to no religion in school. Then comes Islam and the left couldn’t wait to switch from burning their bra into putting a burqa, turn schools into mosques and teach children how to pray to the Muslim allah. What a mental retard.
( Milo ) A Canadian public school is facing criticism after allegedly turning its computer lab into a “mini mosque” and denying entry to non-Muslim students.
Rebel Media reporter David Menzies says he attended a meeting hosted by a parental advocacy group concerned about the school’s decision.
At that meeting, Menzies met a mother who immigrated to Canada “so she and her family could enjoy” freedoms, only to those freedoms trampled upon.
“Last week when I was having a chat with one of the fellow parents in my community, she mentioned to me that their daughter’s class was stopped outside the computer lab,” she said.
“They couldn’t get to the computer lab. The reason was that prayer was going on inside the computer lab and they had to wait for a half hour.”
The woman went on to claim that her own daughter is being discriminated against because she doesn’t “dress up” like Muslim students.
Disturbingly, the woman also claimed that her daughter approached her last month and asked, “mom, why do you pray to God when God doesn’t love you?”
When pressed for an explanation, the woman’s daughter reportedly stated, “well, God loves only Muslims” and cited a friend whose mother had communicated that message.
The woman goes on to ask if this behavior is “in accordance with Canadian values” or if “we are just turning a blind eye to Islamification of our Canadian values.”
LESBIAN POLITICIAN KATHLEEN WYNNE VISITS MOSQUE WEARNG HEAD SCARF, TOLD TO SIT AT THE BACK AS IMAM PREACHES HOMOSEXUALITY IS SIN…WOW! SHE DIDN’T COMPLAIN?
Kathleen Wynne – known in Canada for being an outspoken lesbian and feminist – reportedly visited a mosque in an effort to show solidarity with Canada’s Muslim community after an attacker shot and killed six people at a Mosque in Quebec.
Unfortunately for the lesbian politician Wynne, the men at the mosque she visited seem to share her view of equality.
According to LouderWithCrowder.com, as the men began praying, Wynne – the highest ranking politician in the province of Ontario – was made to sit where women belong – in a back corner.
JihadWatch.org explains this with the following.
This was simply in accord with Islamic law, as several hadiths have Muhammad saying that if a woman is in front of a man as he is praying, this prayer is invalidated.
The site goes on to state, “Wynne didn’t complain about degradation of women. Nor did she, although gay, say a word about the statements of the imam at the mosque she visited.”
According to a Toronto Sun article, Imam Wael Shehab said:
Homosexuality is a sinful act in Islam. I’d cite the following fatwa of Dr. Muzammil Siddiqi, president of the Fiqh Council of North America.
We should consider them people who get themselves engaged in a sinful act. We should deal with them in the same way we deal with any people who are involved in alcoholics, gambling or adultery. We should have deep repugnance to their acts and we must remind and warn them.
