California: Suspect Arrested in Arson “Hate Crime” on Fresno Mosque is…MUSLIM

As has been reported annually, FBI Hate Crime Stats Again Show anti-Muslim Crimes Almost Non-Existent. And the ones that do exist are often perpetrated by Muslims…but blamed on Americans.

A vandalism attack on the Islamic Cultural Center of Fresno on Christmas Day was immediately branded by Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer as a “hate crime,” and the “Islamophobia” grievance industry began to gear up in response. Now that a suspect has been arrested, the narrative is quickly collapsing.

This video report by KSEE24 describes the damage done to the mosque:

[Seven windows were broken and bleach was poured on an American Flag inside of the center. ]

But police announced today that the suspect arrested in the attack is 28-year-old Asif Mohammad Khan, who, according to news reports, is a Muslim who used to attend the mosque and did the attack in response to bullying by some in the mosque.


In response, Dyer has quickly had to walk back his knee-jerk “hate crime” talk.

According to the Associated Press:

In the search for a suspect, Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer had said that the broken windows and bleach poured on an American flag inside the Islamic center appeared to be a hate crime. On Saturday, Dyer said that investigators interviewed Khan, and their theory has changed. “It was obviously not as we thought,” said Dyer, adding that police will let FBI agents decide whether hate-crime charges are warranted.

Khan confessed, telling officers he was upset with people at the Islamic center for talking down or bullying him, Dyer said.

Remarkably, a member of Khan’s family was allowed to speak at the police news conference to explain his supposed mental illness.

This case of premature “Islamophobia” is reminiscent of the July 2010 arson at a Marietta, Georgia, mosque that was quickly deemed by the grievance industry as a clear case of “Islamophobia” driven by “anti-Muslim” sentiment and brought demands for immediate DOJ and FBI intervention by CAIR and the other usual suspects.

Calls for widespread cultural sensitivity training, “interfaith” outreach, and candlelight vigils were all on the agenda of national Islamic organizations that held a press conference in the wake of the Marietta mosque fire…

Not much was said, however, after it turned out that the fire was set by a member of the mosque, nor were any apologies issued to the non-Muslim community that the Islamic organizations unjustly tarnished with a broad brush.

As much can be expected in this case.

He’s claiming mental illness already. Has anyone checked his immigration status? How about the preponderance of inbreeding in the family?

  1. “…And the ones that do exist are often perpetrated by Muslims…but blamed on Americans…”

    THIS IS now the way that Hateful Bigoted Islam and the Muslims, Vandalize and Desecrate their OWN, THEN try to play the “Oh Poor Us” – Blame the Infidel “Victim Card”, in an attempt to drum up Hate the Infidel “Sympathy”.

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
