NEW YORK (AP) — Authorities say they are investigating a report that a Molotov cocktail was thrown at an Islamic center in New York City.

The Fire Department of New York says a blaze outside the Imam Al-Khoei Foundation building in Queens was brought under control quickly after a call came in at about 9 p.m. Sunday. No injuries were reported.

Fire marshals and police are investigating the purported attack.

The building on the Van Wyck Expressway in the Jamaica section houses a school and religious spaces.

    Why is it a purported attack? If it were a church or synagogue, the authorities wouldn’t call it purported, they would call it heinous or heartless.

    What is a mental disorder in the notion that every Muslim is threat to the point of violence. Islamophobia is a real mental disorder and those who fear Muslims like this should have their heads examined!

    So – “facts about Islam” justify committing a violent crime?!
    You’re crazy!
