Fire Destroys Pulse Nightclub Gunman Omar Mateen’s Mosque

FORT PIERCE, Fla. — A fire overnight destroyed the Islamic Center of Fort Pierce, a mosque once attended by the Pulse nightclub killer and another American terrorist, reports CBS West Plam Beach Florida affiliate WPEC-TV.

The first crews on scene reported seeing flames shooting through the mosque’s roof.

Authorities said it was unclear whether the blaze was set and whether there were any ties to the 15th anniversary of the September 11 attacks.

    “Police say terrorism arson is not being investigated as a cause”

    • Heh;)

        Oh well you knew it was coming. I wonder if they got video of the Imam buying 2 gallons of gas in jugs a few minutes earlier?

        • Whatever the reason, “inshallah”.

          Allah willed it and Achmed delivered.

          I’m willing to donate 5 gallons to the cause.

    Hope it wasn’t insured because as we all know insurance is haram.

    Mateen’s mosque. On Sept. 11. “Vengeful white people are out to get us, muslims are the real victims”. Not seeing any info about it, but I wouldn’t be surprised if the security system (particularly cameras) were mysteriously deactivated. Odds-on favorite is another case of muslim Munchausen syndrome.

    And if it does turn out to be genuine, well, as Bart says, “That’s horrible! In principle.” It’s the sort of shit Jews and Christians have to put up with regularly around the world from the Religion of Pieces, so their indignation fills me with indifference.

    This is the sort of thing that happens when you circumvent the electrical meter to hide your bomb labs consumption… you end up with electrical fires.

    I hope the firemen are safe, all the ammo and explosives cooking off can be dangerous

    O well I guess they won’t be able to help investigators now that all their records have been destroyed by fire. What a shame.

    I see three possibilities ;
    – Hoax
    – Accident
    – Someone has been doing some reading:
    Qur’an 2:190: “The sacred month and the sacred precincts are under the safeguard of
    reprisals: whoever offereth violence to you, offer ye the like violence
    to him, and fear God, and know that God is with those who fear Him.”

    • Clausewitz

      Put me down for Hoax.

  • moraywatson

    The police must relentlessly investigate this fire until they find the muslim who is responsible.

    Ah, preparation for bigger badder new Mosque?

  • Oh, well.

  • canminuteman

    I would like to think it was a friend or relation of one of the victims who did it. I would like this to happen after every terrorist attack.

    This is very sad. Why couldn’t the mosque been full at the time?
