A T-shirt hung outside an Islamic Center leader’s home that says “9/11 was not a joke” is being investigated by police as a possible “hate crime” at the urging of designated terrorist group CAIR.
NBC New Britain police are investigating a possible hate crime in front of an Arch Street home after a man found a shirt hanging on his utility pole. Omer Abdelgader is a native of Sudan and has been a New Britain resident for the last 27 years. He is also the president of the Islamic Center of Central Connecticut.
On Wednesday, when he returned from the mosque, he found a shirt hanging on a utility pole outside of his home with statements referring to ISIS and the September 11 terrorist attacks. “What it makes me sad is it’s in front of my house. Out of all the houses in the neighborhood- right here hanging in front of my house,” Abdelgader said. (You must be the only Muslim on the street) On the shirt are messages asking “what is your plan?” and “are you supporting or possible terrorism?” One question of extremism is also displayed.
Omer’s daughter, Ebaa Mohmed, ‘why would they be directing that towards us?’ Like what does that mean? As if we’re going to do something worse than 9/11,” she said. (One never knows. The 9/11 hijackers were thought of as nice quiet men when they lived in Florida)
The below video from the Islamic Thinkers Society desecrating an American flag in the heart of New York City is why T-shirts like that show up in front of mosques and Muslim residences.
