Texas: Houston mosque fire set by devout Muslim who attended 5 times a day

The media and terror-linked Muslim groups like CAIR were quick to paint the Christmas Day torching of a Houston mosque as an example of Islamo-faux-bia, a blatant hate crime blared left-wing tabloid Salon, and even suggesting Donald Trump’s America-first policies were to blame.

Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, a nearby banquet hall provided a place for the Muslims to pray on Christmas and until their mosque is repaired.

Now that a devout Muslim has been charged with arson in the mosque fire you’ll hear crickets. Another in a growing list of mosque attacks by Muslims for which Muslims and the media immediately and falsely blame Americans

A Houston man has been arrested in connection with a suspected arson at a mosque on Christmas Day.

A spokeswoman for the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives confirmed that the man was arrested early Wednesday, sometime after midnight, and appeared in court 7 a.m. Wednesday.

The suspect, Gary Nathaniel Moore, 37, of Houston, appeared in court at 7 a.m., spokeswoman Nicole Strong said.

 According to a charging instrument released by the Harris County District Clerk, Moore told investigators at the scene that he has attended the mosque for five years, coming five times per day to pray seven days per week.

Moore told investigators he had been at the mosque earlier on Dec. 25 to pray, and had left at about 2 p.m. to go home. Moore told investigators he was the last person to leave the mosque and saw no smoke or other signs of fire when he left. He had returned to the scene after hearing about the fire from a friend.


Using surveillance video from multiple businesses nearby, investigators were able to identify Moore, according to records. A search warrant of his home was conducted, in which investigators recovered a backpack and clothing that seemingly matched that which was seen in surveillance footage, as well as one half of a two-pack of charcoal lighter fluid bottles that seemed to match another lighter fluid bottle found inside the mosque.

It took about 80 firefighters to put out the two-alarm blaze at the storefront mosque in Savoy Plaza, near Wilcrest Drive and West Bellfort.

Though the suspect said he was a regular at the mosque, MJ Khan, president of the Islamic Society of Greater Houston, which operates the mosque, said he was unfamiliar with Moore. “We are just looking into it ourselves,” he said Wednesday morning after learning of the arrest.

“We are really very surprised and saddened by this whole thing,” said Khan.

No doubt Khan and others (e.g., terror-linked CAIR) were hoping it was an infidel who did it.

Why is this mosque in a retail strip mall anyway?

  1. When will we start learning that the Muslim threat is real and their slow infiltration of our society should be stopped immediately. We have to wake up folks, really.

  3. The Muzzies really freak me out when talking about “praying”! The drivel that they regurgitate five times daily isn’t “praying”, but the mumbo jumbo of mental cases. Wishful thinking, but wouldn’t it be nice if we could catapult all Muzzturds into outer space, and have them go around and around for eternity! They obviously don’t belong on earth, but in some other dimension. . .

  5. Everyone jumped to claim “hate” was involved, again how many of the mosques fires were set by Muslims themselves, seems like each one of them.

  6. Oh geez so totally shocking…. NOT!
    Stop all in flow of all muslims into the USA until we can completely vet them. The key word here is “completely”. Which by the way at this time is not possible, but no matter. Further – every single mosque should be under 24 x 7 surveillance.
    Too freaking bad if that statement hurts anybody’s little tiny ignorant feelings.
