Chances of this being widely reported on the wingnutosphere? Zero to non-existent? One wonders what their reaction would've been if someone was killed?
An unidentified gunman fired into a mosque in western Australia packed with hundreds of Muslims observing the holy month of Ramadan, but no one was hurt, police said Saturday.Again, if this incident took place against a Christian church or a Jewish synagogue something tells me there'd be a wholly different approach to the story.
Around 400 worshippers were praying at the mosque in suburban Mirrabooka in the west coast city of Perth when the shooting occurred Friday evening, Western Australia state police Inspector Neville Patterson said.
"A single shot was fired from a high-powered rifle from outside the mosque through a window on the second level, narrowly missing a couple of worshippers," Patterson said.
The gunman, who fled the scene in a green sports utility vehicle, has yet to be identified, he said. The bullet was lodged in the mosque wall and ballistics experts were searching for more clues.
Patterson said it was unclear whether the shooting was an attempt to murder or to terrorize
