Burlington, MA - Muslim advocates say a mosque in a Boston suburb of Burlington has been vandalized.

The Massachusetts chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations said Sunday that vandals spray-painted “USA” repeatedly on the exterior walls of the Islamic Center of Burlington.

The group says the vandalism was discovered early Sunday and reported to police, who are investigating. They say they’ve posted photos of the graffiti online.

In a statement, the group suggests the graffiti reflects a growing anti-Islamic sentiment that Muslim are not “real” Americans.

The executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations in Massachusetts says the group will formally ask the FBI’s Boston office to also conduct an inquiry. John Robbins also says the mosque was previously spray-painted with “USA” graffiti in 2013.

OMG!
I hope Ban Ki Moon weighs in on this dangerous price tag development. Funny, how this will go down as a random act of stupidity but if the same thing was done in the West Bank it would be an international incident.

LionofZion...we should condemn all vandalism of religious institutions in the United States. You are among those who have decried the lack of support from others when it is a shul that was vandalized with graffiti.

As for your Price Tag analogy...I don't believe that in the United States zealots associated with graffiti are fire bombing and killing anyone.

This is as much a tragedy as the vandalizing of a shul or bies medrash. The mosque has the same kedusha to muslims as our places of davening and learning have to us. Both are abominations and the perps should be found and punished. I really hope no yidden are involved.

#2 and 3, you are right, this vandalism is terrible and no one should damage or deface the property of another. However, my point was the hypocrisy of the UN and others when Jews use spray paint while Arabs are using knives. Obviously, NOBODY should ever hurt another innocent human being.

Wrong. Mosques are pure tum'ah. Big difference.
