More Hate Crimes: Tennesse - Fire at Mosque Construction Site

Hate Crimes: MURFREESBORO, TN (NBC) - Agents from the FBI and ATF are asking for help from the public in solving the arson at the future site of the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro, Tennessee. A piece of construction equipment at the site was set on fire Friday night. Others were drenched in what appeared to be possibly gasoline, officials said. The Rutherford County Sheriff's Department is also investigating a complaint about shots being fired near the site Sunday afternoon. It's the second time in six months someone has targeted the site. Last time, signs were broken and spray-painted.

Maybe we should look at the intolerance projected by Islam and it foremost expert on Sharia law:

Qaradawi wrote, “As Islam is a comprehensive system of worship (Ibadah) and legislation (Shari’ah), the acceptance of secularism means the abandonment of Shari’ah, a denial of the divine guidance and a rejection of Allah’s injunctions. It is indeed a false claim that Shari’ah is not proper to the requirements of the present age. The acceptance of a legislation formulated by humans means a preference of humans’ limited knowledge and experiences to the divine guidance: Say! Do you know better than Allah? (Qur’an 2:140) For this reason, the call for secularism among Muslims is atheism and a rejection of Islam. Its acceptance as a basis for rule in place of Shar’ah is downright apostasy."

Apostasy is an explosive accusation. On another occasion, Sheikh Qaradawi explained that “Muslim jurists are unanimous that apostates must be punished.” He further acknowledged that the consensus view of these jurists, including the principal schools of both Sunni and Shiite jurisprudence is “that the apostates must be executed.”

Those who support Islam therefore support the execution of apostates, a concept totally foreign to American jurisprudence. Islam in America is not able to implement this requirement yet but it remains a requirement and inevitably one day someone will be executed quietly so it appears like just a random killing.

There are perpetrators of hate and intolerance on either side of any issue but I generally ignore those people because regular Americans aren't like that.
