Faked 'Hate Crime' Against Mosque
I'm calling it a hoax. There is a history of individuals faking hate crimes in an effort to create the illusion of backlash after acts of terrorism or sudden jihad syndrome.In this case, someone pretty stupid is attempting to fake a hate crime with graffiti:
Police said Saturday they were investigating what a Muslim advocacy group described as an act of vandalism against an Oklahoma City mosque that may have been part of a backlash after the Boston Marathon bombings.The graffiti was misspelled words, confused symbols, and a very blatant antisemitic link. The perpetrator wrote "Hale, Satan" and drew a common anarchist symbol, not a Satanist symbol one would expect given the text :

Looks like someone failed english class. And having one star of david and a ton of the anarchist's A symbol really screams hate crime. What it screams is liberal idiot who is trying to stir up some fake controversy and scream that right wingers/conservatives are at fault. Last I knew conservatives were cross people not anarchists who failed basic english class.

Even if home-grown leftists can't spell, wouldn't a Muslim be more likely to confuse these symbols due to unfamiliarity? I'm not saying that the perp is Muslim, just that this seems equally likely.
