Police probe reports of attack on Islamic center

From Marina Landis, CNN

(CNN) - A Molotov cocktail was tossed at an Islamic center in one of three attacks in New York City, authorities said early Monday.

The three attacks in Queens were at the Islamic center, a bodega, and a private house on Sunday night, officials said.

Molotov cocktails were used in all the attacks, resulting in some damage but no injuries, the New York Police Department said.

In a fourth incident, a fire damaged part of house, but it was too early to tell whether it was a result of a Molotov cocktail and was related to the other incidents, police said.

    idiots kill each other over shoes.smart people recognize the problem with a mosque at ground zero and sharia law in the united states.that is proposed by terrorist sympathizers.if u cant see the problem with it u are also a terrorist sympathizer and deserve to die with the enemy.

      An eye for an eye leaves the world blind... if you do not recognize the problem in what you said, then you truly are what you claim to fight against..

      You are truly a world-class idiot. Islam and Christianity have the EXACT SAME god!!!! "Allah" is simply the Arabic wortd for 'god'.

    Have any of u actually read the Holy Quran from front to back? Have any of you sat in a Mosque? Please do your children and your grand children a favor and educate YOUR SELF. Stop believing everything you hear. *Knowledge Tip* Jesus is mentioned more then Mohammed in the Quran. Its sad, we have the internet in our hands, endless amount of knowledge but yet we still have so much hate. God bless you all, may he bless you all with the best of health and wealth. Happy New Year!! 🙂

      For a better understanding what you must do to be able to di`cern (judge0 what spirit you are of, we invite you all the pages and articles of the website http://www.aworlddeceived. ca in particular the articles 'World History and Developments' in the Middle East and 'Clash of Civilications'.

      Please study your history and you will learn that Mohammed was a rapist and a murderer, just like Joseph Smith Jr. the founder of the Mormon Church.

      Seek, and ye will find (Matthew 7:7).

    For a better understanding of the history of Islam and its impact on the world community, we invite you to read the articles ‘World History and Developments in the Middle East’ and ‘Clash of Civilizations’, listed on our website http://www.aworlddeceived.ca

    To give people a better understanding of the principalities and destructive forces (Eph. 6:12) that control the Media, US Politics and the issues that divide this world, we invite you to read the articles ‘CNN Belief Blog ~ Sign of the Times’ and ‘Influence of the Media’.

    All of the other pages and articles will explain how and by whom this world has been deceived as confirmed by the Word of God in Revelation 12:9 and they will also explain what mankind must do to be reunited with God and to be able to understand the Bible.

    He that is spiritual judgeth (discerneth) all things, yet he himself is judged of no man (1 Cor. 2:15; 14:37; Proverbs 28:5; Gal. 6:1; Col. 1:9; John 3:8; 5:30; 8:15; 16:8-11).

    Seek, and ye will find (Matthew 7:7).
