O.C. Islamic Educational Center a Target of Anti-Muslim Acts

To be honest actions like this only hurt non-Muslims in this war. Now CAIR will complain more, and our authorities will be even more afraid to confront the Islamic community. We need to continue educating our fellow Americans to this threat, until we have the numbers to force our politicians to take a stand. Short term thinking like this vandalism is not the answer.

O.C. Islamic Educational Center a target of anti-Muslim acts

Costa Mesa police step up patrols after incidents at the center, including the burning of two copies of the Koran. The Muslim part of an interfaith display in Mission Viejo was defaced, a group says.

Costa Mesa police have stepped up patrols near the Islamic Educational Center of Orange County, the target of recent anti-Islamic acts including vandalism, hate mail and the burning of two copies of the Koran.

Vandals also recently defaced part of an outdoor interfaith holiday display in Mission Viejo, according to the Los Angeles office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, which denounced both acts as “incidents of anti-Islam hate targeting the local Muslim community.”

The two incidents are thought to be unrelated but appear to be part of a recent uptick in anti-Muslim acts nationally, especially since the attempted terrorist bombing of a jetliner headed to Detroit on Christmas, council spokeswoman Munira Syeda said Saturday.

A burned and torn copy of the Koran was found in the parking lot at the educational center, on Airport Loop Drive, during Friday prayers. It was the second time in a month that a desecrated Koran had been found there, according to a statement on the Costa Mesa mosque’s website.

“This deplorable incident is a form of anti-Islamic assault, hate crime and terror campaign against American Muslims,” it read. “Even more, it is a great offense against 1.2 billion Muslim followers worldwide because it defiles their holiest and most sacred divine book.”

Costa Mesa Police Sgt. Ed Everett said that his department has increased patrols in the area but that no arrests have been made.

In the Mission Viejo incident, vandals defaced the Islamic portion of the holiday display but left nearby Christian components untouched. They painted over a verse from the Koran and left behind a piece of paper reading “No Islamic Lighthouses in the U.S.A.”

    They kill people over cartoons, but get upset at a burned Koran. The irony is amazing. I agree, that it does not help our fight but at a certain point, can you really blame people? I'm so sick of Muslims I could puke.

      No, I can see where the aggravation comes from, but this year we need to start getting organized and try to actually get something done in regards to Islam. Actions like these only help them.

      Happy New Year to you and your family!

    I can relate to both the points made above. I know there's plenty folks out there that want to strike back at muz for all the crap they put the world through. Hell, I can't open my homepage without reading about some new atrocity by jihadis. But, Chris has also got a point…..our lame-ass leadership will side with the muz to appease them. Part of the problem is our dependence on muz-controlled oil. Saudi Arabia is the home of wahabi-ism, the most nasty form of muz. They quietly FINACE al qaida…and we don't dare call the raghead bastards on it. Maybe we should start there….and once we clean out the democrap (commie) congress, we can start drilling in the US again!

      You nailed it Tonto! We will never truly confront the Saudis on the Mosques of hate that they are opening across America, until we get off of their oil. It is a step that has to be taken, in order to win this war.

    “This deplorable incident is a form of anti-Islamic assault, hate crime and terror campaign against American Muslims,” Actually, it's none of those things. You can't assault a book, you can't commit a hate crime against a book, and littering is not terror. Much ado about nothing. People put Christ in a glass of piss and the government pays for it. Pick up the book and throw it away, end of story.

    Why the interfaith displays in the first place? Islam denounces the central teachings of Christianity – Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. No man comes to the father but through him, He is the Son of God, crucified and resurrected, seated at the right hand of the Father, coming to judge the living and the dead.
    How can a true Christian put the Koran next to the Bible and say that they can somehow be happy together? Mohammad hated and denied Christ, and rebelled against his teachings.
    The attack was against the 'church' leaders that put up such a display, as much as it was against the Koran.

      The interfaith display is just part of the "religion of peace" con.

        Right, but who are the other half of the inter-faith collaboration? The Mission Viejo poeple, I assume some 'Christian' organization which cooperated with the mosque, are, in my mind, even more to blame for the displays. They do not understand Christianity if they think there can be equating of Islam with Christianity – a coexistence. Do people not notice that the COEXIST bumper stickers have the moon at the front and the cross at the end? What a deception. The moon plans unforgiving world domination. Wake up!

        • January 4, 2010 at 10:25 pm

          The other half are so called Christians who just do not want to face the persecution of Christians under Islamic rule. They want to be told that it has nothing to do with Islam. They want to take the easy way out.

    Was this done by an Iranian in solidarity with their homeland? Videos of Iranians burning the book are all over youtube and twitter.

    • January 4, 2010 at 5:22 pm

      I am not sure who did this. There is a YouTube video of an Iranian burning the Koran that I saw the other day. Unfortunately it is two years old and I have not seen anymore.
