Vandals shoot paintballs at OKC mosque

The Grand Mosque of Oklahoma City was fired upon by paintballs early Sunday, and the vandals fled the scene before they were apprehended.

About 2:45 a.m., the vandals pulled into the parking lot of the Grand Mosque, 3201 NW 48, and fired upon the building’s doors, Hassan Ahmed, the mosque’s imam and director said.

“A car pulled here in front of the main entrance and started shooting paintball guns, but at the time, I didn’t know it was that. I thought it was bullets they were shooting into the building. And I could hear when I was coming from the house, but before I reached there, they were gone,” Ahmed said.

Police arrived a few minutes later, but by that time, the vandals were gone.

The paint splatter was removed early Sunday, and it doesn’t appear that any further damage was done to the building, Ahmed said.

“I’m speechless. I cannot believe this is occurring in Oklahoma, where diversity and religious tolerance is always there,” he said.

The incident was captured on surveillance video, which has already been given to the police. Police had added extra patrols, and Ahmed is thinking about hiring security officers.

“And you know the only concern now we have is the upcoming holiday on Sunday … . We are expecting over a thousand people to worship here and celebrate the end of Ramadan,” he said.

No further information was available from Oklahoma City police on Sunday.

  1. According to today’s issue of El Fegr, “Elements of terrorist, jihadi organizations distributed leaflets today inciting for the killing of Copts in Suez, Ismailia, and Upper Egypt, promising them [Copts] a tragic end if they do not return to the truth.”

    An image of a copy of the letter appears on El Fegr’s website. Titled “An Urgent and Important Notice,” it begins by calling on “all brothers and sisters” to “kill or physically attack the enemies of the religion of Allah—the Christians in all of Egypt’s provinces, the slaves of the Cross, Allah’s curse upon them…” It proceeds to promise a monetary reward for whoever helps “achieve Allah’s rights against his enemies.”

    As a testimony to how safe the jihadi organizations of today’s Egypt feel under the new president, the Muslim Brotherhood’s Muhammad Morsi, the usual cryptic language is dropped, as the letter names contact points and even a mosque, Sheikh Ahmed Mosque in Kasfrit, where those interested should rally “after Friday prayers where new members to the organization will be welcomed.”

    This genocide has been called until Egypt’s Christians “return to the truth,” a reference apparently meaning that Egypt’s Christians must either embrace “the truth”—that is, Islam, which they must convert to—or else return to the truths of the religion, which holds that Christians must embrace their subhuman dhimmi status (Koran 9:29).

  2. anon, and what does any of what you posted have to do with the mosque in Oklahoma City?

  3. Nothing Mr. Shelton: I think he was comparing the problems of Muslims in America to the problems of Non-Muslims in Muslim nations. Perspective, I believe, is the word for it.

  4. criley401, I don’t think the actions of others is a way to justify our own actions. In the west we hold ourselves to higher standards than those in what are currently muslim majority countries.

    However, it doesn’t harm to highlight the ongoing abuses and appalling actions perpertrated by muslims around the world.

  5. The “ongoing abuses and appalling actions perpertrated by muslims around the world” are creating rivers of refugees, some of them might be annoyed at what they have gone through.

    I think we are going to see a lot of this in future. Various religions attacking houses of worship. It would help if the media would quit hiding what is really going on.

  6. Anon,

    I always see you and your ilk pointing out faults and crimes of Muslims and Islam. Well, go on. Yes, Egyptian Copts are massacred by Muslim terrorists. But does that mean Muslims are doing a religious duty? So far as you can see, that Jews are Christians are People of the Book. Even during the Muslim conquest of Egypt, Muslims were ordered to do the best behaviour with Copts. If they have not, you should not blame Islam by quoting some verse from its texts but blame the Muslims instead. And you pig, Dhimmi, huh? I know you got it from the fatherfucken motherfucker raw fart stencher and the flea infested, cheap bitch Baat Yeor. I personally never support the protected status citizen concept. But what I must say that the protected status is not unique to Islam. It was in vogue in Persia and Byzantium too. And in the Muslim dominated realms, the protected status was far far better than in Christian ones as attested by Professor Bernard Lewis. There was sporadic violence but never established. Now bark about India. If the PS was so brutal, why India remains the largest home to Hindus probably won’t enter your crappy head, you stinky whore.

    Refugee, a-ha; the largest masses of refugees have been created by White European Christians. Keep aside the slaughter of native Americans. What about European Christians that fled Europoe from religious persecutions? What about the Khazar Jews who were forced to adopt Germanic and Slavic names? What about Russian destruction of Siberia and Central Asian Muslims? What about the Holocaust that doomed the European Jews? All Muslims’ faults and barbarity? What about Afghans and Iraqis becoming refugees?

Have your say!
