This is terrifying.
Dayton Daily News: Chemical Irritant empties Islamic Society of Greater Dayton
fear in the air some people are wondering if this is a side effect of the "Obsession" hate-filled dvd's that were recently distributed as "ads" in newspapers across Ohio (and across the country).
after the markets news today, this was even more horrible news. really shocking. But it's also a reminder of just how vulnerable mosques in the usa are: their doors usually open all day 7 days a week, their open, welcoming design an inherent risk, the low budget "security" systems not quite capable of detecting shady action and protecting their premises. then again, the fact that some mosques were torched and bomb-threatened here in the usa after 9/11 was an all-too quickly forgotten red flag: there definitely are haters out there, and mosques need to beef up their security and be more vigilant and careful. having one or two security guards to guide parking traffic during taraweeh is not going to cut it anymore.
