Hate crime at mosque prompts outpouring of books

Some local organizations are coming to the rescue of a local religious institution that recently became the victim of hate crime.

Now, that story is turning into one of love and compassion, with the outpouring of donations.

The fire at the Islamic Center of Greater Toledo in September didn’t just damage the Mosque, it also destroyed the private school library used by children from kindergarten through fourth grade.

Monday, hundreds of books were presented by Books 4 Buddies and the Lucas County Sheriff’s deputies to the Islamic School’s students at Owens Community College. Books 4 Buddies participants focus on increasing youth literacy by collecting and gently used reading material.

Islamic School students got their hands on classics like ‘The Magic School Bus’ and ‘Thomas the Tank Engine.’

Leaders at the school hope the gift will help their young students understand the love and support from the community.

  1. Keep trying to suffocate imaginary “Islamophobia”. There is no phobia about Islam. Islam is a totalitarian evil which leaves a mark of brutality and extremism wherever it goes.
    If you had any trace of humanity in you, you scum, you would question why Muslims have been committing ethnic cleansing of non-Muslims in Bangladesh. Why they do the same to Buddhists in Southern Thailand. Or Hindus in North India. Or against Buddhists in Burma (who hit back at the hateful aggressors and leveled their entire regions). Or against Christians through the entire Middle East. Or the hate crimes, killing and threats to Jews all across Europe.

Have your say!
