Vandalism at Islamic Elementary School: Was It A Hate Crime?

17 January 2013 General One Comment Email This Post Email This Post


KOMO TV reports that parents at Medina Academy, a private Muslim elementary school, say that vandalism of their school is a hate crime after their school was tagged twice in two months.

In the first incident, which happened two months ago at the campus on Northup Way, a tagger wrote “Freedom has been chained,” on the portable classrooms, parents told the TV station. The school cleaned up the graffiti.

In the second incident, which occurred over the weekend, the tagger apparently came back, writing, “It’s rude to cover art.” One of the parents pointed out to the news TV station that the tagger had used an Arabic font.

KOMO reported that parents feel threatened by the tags in the aftermath of recent school shootings and anti-Arabic sentiment after 9/11. Parents have informed the FBI and will ask the city for permission to put up fencing.

  1. More than likely, some Islamists thought this would be a great ploy to cry victim once more. Probably no hate crime at all.
