Vandal Throws Rocks And BIBLE Through Colorado Islamic Center Windows

Police in Fort Collins, Colorado are investigating a serious act of vandalism after a man threw rocks and a Bible through the window of an Islamic Center. In reaction, hundreds of Fort Collins residents, who took to the streets Sunday in support of the religious center, according to AJC.com. “This incident has a very real impact on our Muslim friends and neighbors,” Fort Collins police Chief John Hutto said in a statement. “The criminal act against their sacred space is unacceptable.”

“He tried to break in using a screwdriver, kicking at the door,” the center’s president, Tawfik Aboellail, told The Denver Post. “Finally he broke two back doors with five-pound rocks. … Thank God no one was here.” 

“The Bible being thrown into the prayer hall is a message in itself,” Aboellail told the Post. “We are peaceful people. We love our Christian and Jewish brothers. We don’t have any problems with anyone.”
