Authorities say they’ve identified three individuals believed to be responsible for burning two crosses into the lawn of a mosque located in western New York.
Police say they responded to the scene around 9:30 p.m. Thursday at the World Sufi Foundation Mosque in Carlton.
Watch a video showing the damage, courtesy of WIVB:
The crosses were burned into the grass by using an accelerant like gasoline to make an outline before lighting them.
Police said the three individuals they believed responsible are all under 21 years of age and will surrender to authorities Tuesday. Officials have no reason to believe any others were involved in the crime (H/T WNYW).
While there is no condoning such vandalism, incidents such as these bring to light the growing fear of radical Islam in America.
Radical Muslims have repeatedly chanted death threats to Americans, and they do not seem intent on changing their ways. The radical Islamic terrorists continue to spread chaos across the globe, and hundreds of Americans have joined the Islamic State group and later returned to America even more radicalized than they were before.
So, it should come as no surprise that some might be a little worried when a mosque shows up in their neighborhood.
We are glad authorities discovered who vandalized the lawn and hope they pay for what they did — but their actions reflect a growing anxiety that become ever more pronounced every time President Barack Obama chooses to support the Muslim community while throwing America under the bus.
What do you think should happen to these three vandals? Please share your thoughts on Twitter and Facebook.
