Mosque demands hate crime investigation despite facts

Muslim community comes together after Queens mosque attack

JAMAICA, Queens (WABC) — A community in Queens is coming together to stand up against hate after several people were injured in an attack inside the Jamaica Muslim Center.

Michael Voyard, 26, is charged with assault, criminal mischief and menacing after he allegedly punched several people during afternoon prayer service around 1:30 p.m. Tuesday. The Queens district attorney says the incident is not considered a bias crime, but the congregants disagree.

“He Came inside the mosque, said he was the prophet,” Mohammad Rahman said. “Asking for Koran to show proof that he’s the prophet.”

Do watch the video, the “assailant” is said to have many Muslim friends and his behavior is described by the DA as likely to be drug induced mental instability.

No matter the facts, the Muslims want it labelled a hate crime.

Besides, they already have a crazy prophet, what harm could one more be?

    Sounds like they’re desperate for hate crime victimhood status.

      They reek of it. It’s so clearly not, and they so clearly want it to be it’s pathetic.

    Why didn’t they just hand him a Koran so he could prove he was their prophet? He seemed fairly legit.

    • I like him better than the other guy.

        Yeah, there was no mention of pedophilia, so he’s got *that* going for him over Mo.

    If I understand this correctly his “hate crime attack” was to claim to be their prophet. Following this the Muslims could not help themselves but respond with violence.

    “Muslim community comes together …”
    Yeah ’cause they sure don’t stick together in a shower, pack (whatever you call a collection of muzzies) as a rule, right? :rolleyes

    Good heavens is there no place left on this planet that has not been infiltrated by the Muslim plague?

      I’m warming to the idea of Antarctica.

        I’m a bit cool on that one.

          The climate sucks, there’s not much to do, but then again there are no muzzies. 😀
