MANTECA-

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is asking the FBI to investigate a recent vandalism at a Manteca mosque as a hate crime.

The Islamic Center of Manteca was reportedly hit with spray-painted hateful messages. Vandals also apparently left behind strips of raw bacon.

“Muslims are prohibited from consuming pork products and bigots often use pigs or pork to offend Muslim sensibilities,” a statement from CAIR read.

Basim Elkarra, executive director of the Sacramento Valley chapter of CAIR, adds that the Manetca mosque has been hit by vandals before.

“Because of the nature of the vandalism and the fact that the mosque has been targeted in the past, we urged state law enforcement authorities and the FBI to investigate this disturbing incident as a possible hate crime,” Elkarra said.

  1. oh so they left behind some bacon. Why couldn’t they just fry it up instead? perfectly good bacon used for such hate ? sacrilege. But seriously bacon? thats the oldest trick in the book

  2. Seriously though, fuck racism and fuck people that waste good bacon.

  3. This is not the issue freaks will do such things but most important thing is to see what the authorities will do about catching and preventing such acts.

  7. Sick and tired of all the Islamophobia! And sick and tired of the perpetrators that are doing these sickening acts! People fear with what they do not understand or care to learn!

  8. You can’t fix stupid…kick it in the balls, maybe, but you can’t fix it.

  9. Well, if they settled and built a mosque in a town called Manteca, they must be pretty broad-minded folks.

  10. Sick and tired of all the Islamophobia! And sick and tired of the perpetrators that are doing these sickening acts! People fear with what they do not understand or care to learn! Copied

  11. Wow, serious losers here. And of course they do this sort of thing anonymously and then go back and brag to a chosen few about how they “stood up” to the Muslims.

  12. So tacky. And a waste of good bacon for those of us who eat it!

  13. The funny thing is that Manteca is made with pork lard, just saying … Who name a town Manteca for cry out loud!

  14. oooooooohh scary bacon!!!!!!

  15. It appears strips of bacon are the “new” burning cross. lol

  16. sad and sickening!

  17. People are just awful.

  18. Pissing off Muslims and bacon-lovers at the same time. Dirty pool old man

  19. This is so disgusting.

  20. What a shame. If only people took the time to educate themselves about the incredibly peaceful and beautiful nature of Islam. God has called Muslims to protect their Christian and Jewish friends. We are all people of the book.

    Welcome to #America

  22. sergio, it looks like it was a misprint.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manteca,_California

    “The residents wanted to refer to their new train station as “Cowell Station”, but there was already a Cowell Station near Tracy. So, the residents agreed to change the name of the community, choosing “Monteca” as the new name.[3] This was misprinted as “Manteca” (Spanish for lard) by the railroad,[3] and the misspelled version was eventually accepted as the name of the town”

  23. Sometimes I just want to beat my head with a brick when I see stuff like this. I just don’t get it.

  24. It’s a shame that the perps live in the same county as me feck man why the hell cant they get used to the fact that Muslims are here to stay

  25. I wonder if these fools even read their own bible and realized that pork was prohibited in the Old Testament. Jews today are also unable to touch pork.

    Either way, that whole act was completely childish and immature.

  26. Xavier lives there man. Muslims are some of the most peaceful people you will ever meat. THey are kind and peaceful and pray more than most Christians.

  27. Astagfirullah! Manteca means pig grease by the way Brothers & Sisters in Islam

  28. wasting meat like that should be a crime akin to animal abuse. Hate mongering and terrorism/bullying aside, if they every figure out who did it, the judge should ban them from eating pork products for the next 2 years. These people are less intelligent (and probably less compassionate) than the pig who was slaughtered for their bacon. They do not deserve it.

  29. Rather an odd name for a mosque anyway, since Manteca is Spanish for “lard.”

  30. its not about fear…its about being socialized within the context of an offender society in which abuse and the abuse of power is seen as normal. they dont attack because they are afraid, they attack because they are abusers.

  31. :(

  32. Yeah even Kevin Bacon!

  33. This is an honest-to-goodness hate crime.

  34. I am not a Muslim, but I can’t stand it when people disrespect others’ right to worship (or not) as they please.

  35. Actually butter: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manteca (according to Wikipedia, and they’re never ever wrong)

  36. People who engage in racism are cowards. They are only doing it just to make themselves feel better.

  37. They should EAT that bacon (i mean those non-Muslims ignorant) rather than spread it on a Mosque, what an idiot -_-

  38. To quote Margaret Cho, it’s not the hate. It’s the stupidity.

  39. christaian s are the most evil

  40. Ignorant

  41. Anyone else notice it says “F isiam”? What/who is isiam?

  42. Greg Madsen – Replacing Islamaphobia with Christianaphobia? Way to be a douche….

  43. Bacon? Really, that doesn’t make Muslims shake in their boots. How silly and unpatriotic, all Americans have the right to practice their religion. To deny this to an American citizen is wrong.

  44. Apparently bacon to Muslims is like garlic to vampires.

  46. Anyone who engages in hate, violence, vandalism etc regardless of their religious affiliation automatically forfeits their religion as all religions at its core promotes love and peace. Any other interpretation from that is a sociopathic interpretation and can no longer be excused as religious indifference. Translation: victims should not blame the religion of the perpetrator, rather the character himself. Perpetrator cannot claim their religion as motive.

  48. gross.

  49. That stuff like grafitti and so forth may be doings of The Phelps clan at the Westboro Baptist Church…you know them….they hold signs saying “God hates everyone” they picket places all over the country so don’t be surprised if they don’t have people doing this stuff too.

  50. That’s awesome

  51. Pain mean!!!
