So there is a link from LGF to this article. Whoopie! Can you post a link to the counterpoint?

He did pick up on it, and fortunately, the LGF crowd is angry that someone would do such a thing to a mosque. However, not everyone is too terribly upset, as noted through the multitude of deleted comments, and some smattering of selections below:

I'm surprised that the fire did not set off any ammo.
But they probably have those deep in the tunnels beneath. 8/14/2007 3:34:47 pm PDT reply quote report

Just because it was probably aimed against followers of religion who use arson and terror when it suits them, doesn't make it ok.

I've heard many synagogues and Jewish community centers have to hire guards now to protect their members from potential SJS, like the kind that struck in Seattle, but you don't hear that mentioned much.

Even if it was targetted at Muslims, I still hope they catch the perps. (Bold is mine -Ed) Any fire can spread to other buildings, and arson could result in an injured fire fighter or resources stretched thin in case of an other emergency,

jonturner (#106),

I know you're probably joking, but considering the propensity for mosques to be used as torrorist training sites it wouldn't suprise me a bit if this was a bomb making class gone wrong.

I somehow doubt this was a "hate crime". If it was even arson.

Sorry, but I now question all muslim complaints and accusations!

Ok, that's enough of an update from me. This racist garbage is too much to handle all at once.

Since when is Islam a race?

And Sphinx, before you get all worked up over nothing, take a look around- how many terror attacks are committed by Islamists, and how many are committed by other religions fanatics?

I'm neither Christian, Jewish, or Muslim, but I've read all of those religion's 'holy' books, and have found the Qu'ran to be the most vile... And coupled with the Sura/Hadith understandings, and the, ever-popular, present day fatwas, makes me think your religion might need a little update to coexist in this century...

"Since when is Islam a race?"

Saddest excuse out there. Merely demonizing an entire group of people solely based on their "otherness", regardless whether its religion, ethnicity, nationality, etc. is akin to racism.

Fact: Hitler demonized Jews.
Retarded response: 'Ooh ooh! But Judaism is not a race!'

Yeah, THAT's how bloody pathetic it sounds.

"I'm neither Christian, Jewish, or Muslim, but I've read all of those religion's 'holy' books, and have found the Qu'ran to be the most vile"

.. leading me to believe that you haven't read it at all, but simply that famous copied-and-pasted list of severely misunderstood and ripped-out-of-context verses that probably every LGFer has a copy saved of.

You know what? I challenge you to prove your point. Quote your verses and show me that you're right. Go ahead, I'm waiting for it. You'll probably feel ashamed afterwards, but if you feel you're up to it then fire away.

Good luck. You'll really need it.
