Fake Hate? Canadian Mosque Tagged With Anti-Muslim Graffiti After Latest Terrorist Attack

I call BS.
A mosque in Cold Lake Canada was tagged with graffiti on Friday morning.
The graffiti read, “Go home!”

This would not be the first time a fanatical Muslim faked a hate crime for public sympathy.
Far from it.

The mosque was vandalized after a radical Muslim convert shot up parliament and murdered a soldier at the national war memorial.

One of the mosque’s directors discovered the graffiti at 6 AM when he came into pray.
The community rallied and cleaned up and repainted the mosque for the Muslims.
Cold Lake Sun reported:

The Cold Lake community rallied around the Cold Lake Mosque on Oct. 24 after the building was vandalized in what local business owners and residents called a “disgusting” crime.

RCMP Sgt. Troy Hadland said police responded to a call of mischief at 6:30 a.m.

Both front windows were broken and the words “go home” and “Canada” were spray painted with red paint on the outside of the building.

Hadland said evidence at the scene was seized and sent to St. Paul RCMP for analysis.
“This type of behaviour won’t be tolerated,” he stressed.

A steady stream of business leaders came in through the front door of the mosque offering their support. They described the crime as “disgusting” and assured mosque members that this crime does not reflect the view of the community of Cold Lake.

Mahmoud El-Kadri, one of the mosque’s directors, came in at 6 a.m. to pray, and found his place of worship vandalized. He said the writing upset him more than the damaged windows, which can be fixed.

“The writing hurts. This is my home, This is our home. This is the only home we have. My kids were born here. They go to school here. Cold Lake is our home. Canada is our home,” he said.

Mayor Craig Copeland said he is “disappointed” with the vandalism.

“It’s going to paint Cold Lake in a bad light (but) that’s not what Cold Lake is about,” Copeland stressed, adding the city is now more ethnically diverse “than ever” and the mosque and its members are a part of that.

Copeland, though also expressed his pride at how the community came together to support the mosque.

By 2 p.m., the windows had been replaced and non-muslim community members were hard at work cleaning the graffiti off the building.

And, of course, the local Canadian community rallied to assist the minority group just like they do in Muslim countries.
