Mercer County Islamic Center targeted by vandals

19 December 2013 General 15 Comments Email This Post Email This Post


PRINCETON (WVVA) – A local Islamic center has been targeted by vandals.

Explicit language, derogatory symbols, and lines have been spray-painted on two exterior walls and the entrance sign of the center, located in Green Valley near U.S. Route 460.

Due to the graphic nature, WVVA has chosen not to post photos of all the graffiti painted on the building.

Dr. Abdul Piracha, a member of the Islamic Center, tells WVVA News that the vandalism happened sometime between Sunday evening and Monday afternoon.

The Mercer County Sheriff’s Office is handling the investigation. The center has since been added to its list of patrols.

Piracha says the center is been in operation for 25 years. He says the only other time it has been targeted by vandals was directly after the terror attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

The Islamic Center will have to be professionally cleaned. Piracha says they plan to beef up security as well.

If you have any information about this case you are urged to call the Mercer County Sheriff’s Office.

  1. This is getting ridiculous. What is wrong with people?

  2. I’m originally from WV. If you turn on the radio anywhere, you will be inundated with rhetoric from the extreme far right 24-hours a day.

  3. Vandals, both right and left need a parental spanking.

  4. it is increasing TOO BADLY HERE IN QUEBEC

  5. I don’t like radical islamists, but not all are radical islamists. Whoever is doing this is stupidly taking the low road that they hate.

  6. What is a “radical Islamist?” In all my years as a practicing Muslim I’m the US, I have not once ever met or heard radical rhetoric. On the news, I have heard so called Muslims using the religion for political agendas, but then I was raised in a religion that does the same yet they are not referred to as radical Presbyterians, just as idiots.

  7. These stories will diminish when the people realize that 9/11 was a freakin’ inside job.

  8. Aisha Teresa Phillips – Right. And “Islamist”? Like a Christianist or a Jewist?

  9. Why do they hate Muslims so much ? What makes them think we are all terrorists . We hate terrorits more than non-Muslims do. We’re tired of explaining ourselves .

  10. Can’t see end of stupidity any sooner.
    It’s going to go on all over the world.

  11. Score.

  12. Kuffar are our enemy.
    Nothing less than their complete subjugation to Islam is desirable.

  13. But its perfectly ok to say “kuffar are our enemy. Nothing less than their complete subjugation to islam is acceptable”.
    You stupid ignorant fucks. That’s not hate right? You dumb, twisted, fake prophet worshiping, kid fuckers. The only world that will be is one completely void of “islam” the “religion”, read cult, of hate.
    Score. Motherfuckers.

Have your say!
