Shoots Up Mosque

A 'Terrorist'? or Just "Stressed Out"?


Politician Attacks Islam - Supporter Attacks Mosque
Chicago's 'Tolerant' Politics?

Mere hours after the Chicago Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) expressed fears that recent statements made by Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.) could make area Muslims a "target," shots were fired at a suburban Chicago mosque.

According to an alert issued by CAIR, two air rifle shots were fired at the outer wall of the Muslim Education Center mosque in Morton Grove Friday evening, while the building was full of worshippers observing Ramadan.

"This last week of Ramadan is the holiest week of the year for Muslims, and the shots were fired at 8:30, a little after sunset, the busiest time of the day when Muslims come to the mosque to break their long day fast and pray together," MEC President Dr. Mohammad Aleemuddin said in a statement released by CAIR.

David Conrad, 51, of Morton Grove was arrested and police seized a high-velocity air rifle in connection with the shooting, Fox News reports. One pellet narrowly missed hitting a security guard stationed at the center, but no one was injured.

Kamran Hussain, Vice President of the Muslim Community Center of Chicago, which owns the facility, told the Chicago Sun-Times that Conrad and the mosque have a history of conflicts. He said Conrad has lived in a home adjacent to the mosque's parking lot for 12 years, and "he's always been a thorn in our side."

Morton Grove Police said in a statement that they were aware of the "sensitive nature of these incidents" and contacted the Cook County State’s Attorney’s office to further the investigative process, Morton Grove Patch reports.

Conrad had been charged with three counts of aggravated discharge of a firearm, a Class X felony, and one Class 4 felony count of criminal damage to property, CBS Chicago reported. The mosque's president, Mohammad Aleemuddin, told the station he thinks Conrad should be charged with a hate crime.

Here is what C.A.I.R. had to say in their letter to me today:


Chicago Muslims spoke out against scaremongering comments made by Illinois Congressman Joe Walsh in which he said, "Islamic radicals are living in Chicago's suburbs".

A diverse group of Muslims, Jews and Christians held a press conference Friday in downtown Chicago to warn against the effects of such irresponsible remarks, especially coming as they did following incidents such as the deadly shooting spree in Wisconsin.


-- But what do you say?

Is this a hate crime?
Or just a man out having a little bit of fun scaring the 'Mozlems"?
What if his bullets accidentally hits a child, putting out an eye, or worse?
Or does it make a difference if the child wasn't a Muslim living there in Chicago?
Is it time to wake up? - Time to Speak Up? -
Time to Stand Up? for your rights as a Muslim living in America?

Or maybe if you keep sleeping it will all just go away - Right?

As for what the terrorist did yes it is a hate crime .in fact its not something new we must not forget that we have enemy of shayatin and human as well , one being can defeat shayatin but for human shayatin it needs unity. Before it gets worse we have to stand up , we have to learn from the companions .

The devils are chained; this one got arrested and was not able to hurt anyone despite the deadly weapon he shot in such close proximity to people. It comes across to me as an event that was shielded and worthy of gratitude. Some of the devils in Congress, however, can't restrain their forked tongues. If this isn't a hate crime, then what is? Will the Congressman be charged for inciting it?

S.A. First thing that came to my mind when i saw this is "i havent heard this in the news at all." It just goes to show how the media is being manipulated. what if someone had been killed, would it have resonated as much as the Sikh Temple incident did? something to think about i guess.....

sometimes i just can't understand....y always muslims? if that would be a church not a masjid i think there would be a very different situation. but its not the first time. if u look into the cases like dr aafia sidiqui, mozzam begg and many others u would be surprised to know that they are paying the price for the crimes they haven't committed...... this is simply hate crime....u can see that clearly....

@burayd, not all the devils are chained. The big leaders are chained but the regular shayateen are still there. That is why u still see ppl disobeying Allaah in Ramadaan. Also, there are devils among the people as well remember?
