Morris County Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward up to $1,000 for information leading to the arrest of whomever sprayed a swastika on the Islamic Center of Morris County. The symbol was sprayed on a glass door outside the building a few weeks ago.
(Ever think of interviewing mosque members? It wouldn’t be the first time Muslims had cosmetically vandalized their own mosque to get pity from local officials and the media)

NJ.com The reward was announced at a press conference involving police and local religious leaders at the center Tuesday morning.
Khurrum Ali, Muslim supremacist rights director of the New Jersey chapter of CAIR) the Council on American-Islamic Relations, said the center’s leaders wanted to call extra attention to the vandalism to head off possible future incidents. “We do not want escalation,” he said. “Right now it was just spray paint. Tomorrow it could be something worse.” (Yes, next time, they might spray paint – gasp – a Star of David!)
Police Chief Douglas Scheer said detectives hope to get more or better footage from cameras at the 1 Mannino Drive building by speaking with the company that installed them.
Last Friday, police said they eliminated a “person of interest” as a suspect in the act. A woman was seen on camera at the building, but after authorities reviewed the footage and interviewed her, it was determined she was a member of the center who was reading a job advertisement on a board outside, officials have said.
A handful of local ‘dhimmi’ religious and interfaith leaders from the area gave their support to the Islamic center at the press conference. State Sen. Anthony Bucco said in a statement, read by Ali at the lectern, that “the bottom line is no one in any town should have to tolerate such divisive actions.” (Yet nearly every synagogue in America has been hit by swastika graffiti at one time or another and nobody makes a federal case out of it. ONLY Muslims)
