In the aftermath of an anonymous donor placing a picture of the crucifixion on a fence outside a mosque in New Hyde Park, New York, police reportedly want to identify the ‘gift’ as an ‘anti-Muslim bias incident’ against Muslims.
PIX11 (h/t Emma) A worker at the Hillside Islamic Center found the artwork at around 5:30 p.m. on Friday. He immediately phoned the police.
Surveillance video captured a frame-by-frame account of the alleged criminal act. The candid camera reportedly shows a man leaning the picture of the crucifixion against a fence, and then making his escape by walking away.
A member of the Islamic Center who said the person or people who did this may not understand what Jesus means to Muslims. “As a Muslim, I love Jesus. We are told to love Jesus. He actually is a prophet of ours. And a lot of people don’t know this but he’s also our messiah,” Islamic Center member Eydid Ali said.
Designated terrorist group CAIR called on the person who left the painting at the mosque to learn what Muslims actually believe. (See second video)
Muslims are quick to point out that they believe in Jesus. However, they only claim to believe in Jesus because their prophet Mohammed totally rewrote the history of Jesus to portray him as a Muslim.
