Iowa: Woman who set Des Moines mosque on fire is…Muslim

So, of course it’s not a hate crime – but Muslims will try to exploit it anyway. The suspect is the namesake of the Islamic prophet’s six-year old wife.

A 22-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of starting a small fire at a Des Moines mosque Thursday morning, police said.

At about 10 a.m., Des Moines firefighters and police were called to the Islamic Center of Des Moines, 6201 Franklin Ave., where there had been a small fire on the carpet, according to a Des Moines police report.

The fire was extinguished by the mosque’s staff by the time firefighters arrived, police said.

Security cameras in the mosque showed a woman, later identified as Aisha Ismail, 22, pouring lighter fluid on the carpet and then starting the fire, said Des Moines police spokesman Sgt. Paul Parizek. Ismail was not on scene when police and firefighters arrived, according to the report.

Police arrested Ismail at a West Des Moines apartment that evening. She was booked into the Polk County Jail on a first-degree arson charge.

There are no indications that this fire was a hate crime, Parizek said. Ismail attended the mosque, he said, adding that her motive for the fire was unclear.

“It doesn’t appear that she was trying to burn the place down,” Parizek said. “It seems like she was trying to make a statement.”

Damage from the fire was minimal, and no one was hurt, Parizek said.

Ismail’s jail bond was set at $25,000. She remained in custody Friday morning.

  1. So, if a non-Muslim had lit that same fire, would it also have been determined it was just a “statement” and not a hate crime? Maybe she hates the cult she’s been forced to adhere to.

  2. Just one more prime example of the mindless confusion among MUZZLUMZ! On the other hand, I can’t help but feel a little sympathy for the totally confused woman! Probably trying to express some kind of ‘women’s lib’ statement or something against the ‘all male’ policy of the inner mosque…..

  3. manufacturing “hate crimes” is almost an industry now- they can compete with PALLYWOOD in creating fictions for media to peddle…by the time the truth is told, it’s too late, most people accepted the lie from the headline awhile back and moved on, secure in feeling they know the lie is true, b/c it confirms what they wish to be true….

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