Suspiciously absent from LGF....

One could only guess at the hysterical rantings at LGF if this had been an attack on a Christian Church.

MELBOURNE, Fla. - A mosque was hit by gunfire as members inside celebrated the start of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, authorities said Saturday.

No injuries were reported and there were no arrests.

A member of the Islamic Society of Brevard County stepped outside the mosque Friday night to use his cell phone when he heard several gun shots, police said.

The man, who was not immediately identified, took cover behind a wall as several rounds struck the building, police said. He then ran inside and told mosque members, who called police.

Authorities searched the surrounding area for suspects but found none.

A pair of binoculars, footprints and tire tracks were found in the woods across from the mosque, said Melbourne Police spokeswoman Jill Frederiksen. Investigators are still trying to determine if they are related to the case, Frederiksen said.

No other details were released, but the investigation is ongoing, Frederiksen said. Detectives were working to determine a reason for the shooting. No suspects have been named.
Charles has, somewhat amazingly, another post about a crescent shaped memorial. The MSN must be quaking in their boots.
