Suffolk County police received a call at about 7:45 p.m. Monday that shards of glass and nails were found outside the Masjid Noor mosque in Huntington. No other damage to the property, nor injuries, were reported.

A similar incident involving a jar of nails occurred last Wednesday.

A mosque official told Newsday in Tuesday’s editions that other vandalism has occurred in recent months, but police were only contacted for the first time last week.

    Someone’s trying to burst the Muslim’s tires! Oh no, it’s the second Holocaust!

    While I am against hate crimes of any form (and against any group of people), this might just be some stupid kids.

  6. Jp says:

    Perhaps the mosque can place a camera outside and find the perp so the police can work on more pressing matters. A jar of nails is a hate crime? If there’s no note that says, “I hate you people”, then it aint no hate crime.

  7. dutch says:

    Trying to give muslims flat tires a hate crime?
    They need to capture these fiends and hang them.
    Nails on a Baptist driveway would NOT be a hate crime.

  8. bevbux says:

    If a muslim did it, how is it a hate crime?

  9. Widow Maker says:

    It’s an inside job.
