Somebody is terrorizing American mosques with drive-by bacon attacks

Islamic rights leaders say a chunk of bacon is the key to a Florida mosque vandalism.

He broke windows, tore down lights and left the bacon near the door of the worship center, which CAIR says is proof his motivations were anti-Muslim.

“People are afraid to take their children back to the mosque … ” Rasha Mubarak, the Orlando Regional Coordinator for CAIR told Florida Today.

It’s important to note that the FBI cut ties with CAIR because it is considered an unindicted co-conspirator in a terrorism funding scheme.

“The use of pork in an incident of this type is one clear indicator of a possible bias motive for the vandalism,” CAIR-Florida Regional Operations Director Nezar Hamze said in a statement.

The bacon attack is one of a string of similar incidents. Multiple mosques have been vandalized in recent months often with pork products left at the scene. Two California mosques were vandalized in December, both hit with graffiti and one with a fake grenade left in the driveway.  Someone left a severed pig’s head at this Philadelphia mosque in December.
