Niagara Falls: Two Muslims Assaulted Near Islamic Centre in Hate Crime

Robert Spencer would say,” Islamophobia? What Islamophobia? It doesn’t exist! But if it does exist or happen then it is the fault of the Mooslims, and this hate crime is probably made up! Michel Duff and Michael Van Andel are probably some Mooslims practicing taqiyyah!”

Big secret: In his heart of hearts Spencer probably smiles anytime a Muslim is attacked.

Two assaulted at Islamic Centre in Niagara Falls in possible hate crime

Niagara Police are investigating after a possible hate crime occurred at an Islamic Centre in Niagara Falls.

Police say on December 3 two adult males and a male young offender went to the Centre armed with golf clubs.

They proceeded to damage cars in the parking lot and where then confronted by two members of the centre.   The members were then assaulted with golf clubs before others intervened and detained the attackers until police arrived.

The victims received minor injuries and were treated on scene.

Police say throughout the attack the assailants continually hurled racial slurs at the victims.

Michel Duff , 27, has been charged with mischief under $5000 and assault with a weapon. Michael Van Andel, 22, has been charged with assault with a weapon and fail to comply with probation.

A 16-year-old young offender is charged with mischief.

Due to the racial slurs police are treating this as a hate crime.

    In 2009, according to data gathered from more than 14,000 law enforcement agencies nationwide, there were 1,376 hate crimes motivated by religious bias. Of those, just 9.3 percent — fewer than 1 in 10 — were committed against Muslims. By contrast, 70.1 percent were committed against Jews, 6.9 percent were aimed at Catholics or Protestants, and 8.6 percent targeted other religions. Hate crimes driven by anti-Muslim bigotry were outnumbered nearly 8 to 1 by anti-Semitic crimes.

    Keep pretending to be victims, victimizers.

    • And what does that generalised statistic have to do with a specific crime which has been classified as a hate crime by law enforcement authorities? It, like others in recent times, has happened and been classified as such; a percentage table does not change that fact.

      Why do you seem incapable of understanding that posters here can be against Islamophobia and also abhor anti-Semitism all at the same time?

    • Oh, poor Anhi. We are so sorry that two Muslims got attacked by your fellow Islamophobes and made you feel bad about your own bigotry. I bet they’re part of the stealth Jihad and faked the whole thing! Hence the reason why you’re being victimized by those big bad, taqiyya-spraying Muslims, am I right?

      On a serious note…

      Who’s pretending to be victimized? And how are we the victimizers?

      Your own article says that Muslims 2nd biggest victims of hate crimes (in terms of religion).

      • And how are we the victimizers?

        LOL.

        Anyway, Jews are the victims of hate crimes far more often than Muslims, yet they are not pumping out terrorists en masse like Muslims are. Muslims use the whole hate crime thing as an excuse to distract people from the destruction they are causing in the name of their religion every day.

        Gotta follow Muhammad’s bloodbath of an example, am i rite? And war is deceit.

        • I’m starting to think Ahni’s a Jew. It explains why he always gets his panties in a bunch with absurd allegations whenever they’re mentioned 😆

          Jews are bigger victims therefore these two men were not attacked for no reason other than the religion they suscribe to? Tu quoque much? Talk about making excuses *facepalm*.

        • “Anyway, Jews are the victims of hate crimes far more often than Muslims, yet they are not pumping out terrorists en masse like Muslims are.”

          Ever heard of the IDF. And remember the Kind David Hotel Bombing of 1948, peace loving Jews blew up a hotel full of Arabs and British soldiers because they were taking too long to give the Jews their own country. What happened to the leader of the attacks, Menachim Begin, did he get arrested? No, in true Israeli style he was democratically elected, agains by peace loving Israelis, as Prime Minister.

          • Wow 1948! Any more recent examples that can match the level of violence perpetuated by Muslims on a nearly everyday basis?

          • Are you saying Menachim Begin, Prime Minister of Israel, was not Jewish? And that the perpetrators of the 1948 Bombings were not Jewish. I understand that you are bewildered by the assertion that a Jew can actually commit a sin, which is why you picked up on the date of the attack. However, if you read about the bombing, you will find how nicely the peaceful, modern Israelis celebrated that 60th Anniversary of the attack (it was in 1946, sorry!). They commemorated the attack with a plaque that blamed the British for not evacuating the Hotel when the Jewish terrorist group, Irgun told them too. Arab leaders warned Jews to evacuate Israel the day it was founded. Perhaps we should now blame the Israeli government every time a person gets killed in Israel by a rocket or bomb.

            Israel celebrated the 60th anniversary in 2006, that’s this century, laughing in the faces of the 91 people that were killed by the terrorists.

          • That’s a no brainer. US drone attacks that kill hundreds of civilians in ‘collateral damage’ every day.

            Can you stop with the libel, and actually try to debate at least somewhat intelligently…without having to parrot your favourite hate sites. I won’t be holding my breath. Today.

          • What about the Cave of the Patriarchs massacre of 1994, when Dr.Baruch Goldstein, an American well-educated doctor, walked into a mosque full of worshippers on Friday and threw grenades and fired bullets killing 29, wounding 125. This was all while the Jewish doctor was aware that as soon as he finishes his ammo, he would be “finished” by the surviving worshippers.

            He gave his life to kill Arabs and protect Israel. He is commemorated by extremist Jews as a martyr, with many Jews making frequent pilgrimage to his grave, kissing his grave stone and the ground of his grave. The epitaph on his grave said that he “gave his life for the people of Israel, its Torah and land”. Many Jewish settlers dress their children like Goldstein on Purim. It is interesting to note that these pictures are not circulated around the internet, but pictures of children dressed as suicide bombers are.

            I have to stress to readers that this is a small minority of Jews, not the majority. We don’t have to sink to the Islamophobes’ level by blaming an entire group for the actions of a few. Major Rabbis did denounce the act.

          • Yeah Mosizzle, I’m sure you’ve got a neat little handbook containing a handful of incidents in your pocket that you can pull out whenever someone brings up the thousands of incidents involving Muslim massacres and terrorism. Ultimately it doesn’t matter, one act of Jewish terrorism is not going to hide the fact that Muslims hold the trump card on genocide, terrorism, and religiously inspired fanaticism in this day and age. No amount of obfuscation can overshadow that.

          • Neat little handbook? I don’t need a handbook, these are important events and someone like you, a proud defender of the Zionist regime, should know. In fact it is the Islamophobes that have a repository of attacks committed by Muslims supposedly in the name of Islam at religionofpeace.

            One incident? Lol. http://www.loonwatch.com/2010/01/not-all-terrorists-are-muslims/

            FBI reports that 7% of terrorist attacks on US soil have been conducted by Jewish extremists whilst 6% is done by Muslim extremists.

            One incident of Jewish terrorism? Man, seriously? I could bring up more. Yitzakh Rabin, remember? Assassinated. Was it some “taqiyya-sprayin” Mooslim Palestinian. No. It was a Jewish extremist angry that Israel even considers peace with Palestine. What was ‘funny’ is that a few Rabbis had declared a “fatwa” against him. Note how Spencer gets excited when an Imam releases a death fatwa. Yigal Amir, the murderer, said this “If not for a Halakhic ruling of din rodef, made against Rabin by a few rabbis I knew about, it would have been very difficult for me to murder.”

            One incident? What about the murder of Alex Odeh, regional director of American-Arab anti discrimination committee by the Jewish Defence League.

            One incident? What about the assassination of Naji Al Ali, the Palestinian cartoonist based in London by Mossad. Remember how Spencer exploded when Muslim extremists threatened to kill the Danish cartoonist?

            I could go on. But this is ample evidence that your claim that Jewish terrorism doesn’t exist or is a minor and ignorable problem is a lie.

            If you want to know who has the “trump card” on terrorism in this day and age, look no further than the mighty United States of America. You may want to bring up Saddam Hussein’s atrocities, the Taliban’s beheadings but a quick Google search will reveal how all of it was paid for by American taxpayers.

          • Nothing you can regurgitate will be able to match 9/11, the Armenian genocide, Beslan, 7/7, Madrid Train bombings, the ongoing genocide in Sudan, the atrocities committed by the thousands of Islamic terrorist groups in existence today, etc. Like I said, Muslims hold the trump card on terrorism and religious violence in this day and age.

            “Moderates” like you will not, and should not, be trusted until you can acknowledge the chaos your coreligionists are causing. Of course, I highly doubt you are actually a moderate. Moderates don’t try and justify terrorist acts like 9/11 and try and hide the root cause, which is deeply embedded in the Qur’an.

          • You are clearly getting desperate. I never claimed to be a moderate and neither have I justified 9/11. But I think it would be most useful for Americans to read the statements issued by Osama bin Laden both before and after the attack to realise why it happened. I find it quite interesting to learn why Israel does some of the things it does, you know, to get the other point of view. That’s all.

            “Nothing you can regurgitate will be able to match…”

            Rubbish. Atrocities committed by the democratically elected governments of America and Israel and the atrocities committed by dictators around the world supported by America are far worse. In terms of numbers, the West has killed way more. There’s no denying it. Al Qaeda may have killed 3,000 and continue to kill 100s each week but it can’t match the millions that have suffered in Iraq from the UN sanctions, the 1st Invasion of Iraq and the 2nd.

            “Moderates” like you will not, and should not, be trusted until you can acknowledge the chaos your coreligionists are causing. ”

            I, Mosizzle, acknowledge the chaos some of my coreligionists are causing. Now it’s your turn. Acknowledge that the modern, civilised and enlightened West has killed millions in the Muslim world for no reason.

            And please, Ahni, find me conclusive evidence that the Quran is the sole reason Osama bin Laden ordered 9/11, that he woke up one morning, read a couple of verses and sent his men to New York.

            Go on. I dare you.

          • You sound very sympathetic to Osama bin Laden and the poor, poor Muslims overseas for someone who doesn’t believe 9/11 was justified. Between this and the veiled threats against Spencer, and your open admission that you are not a moderate, leads me to believe you are probably somebody the FBI should have their eye on.

          • You really are desperate. You can’t answer anything that’s being thrown at you so you’ll accuse me of being a potential terrorist. I sure seem to have scared you off a couple of times.

            “veiled threat”?. Lol. I clarified my comment and it in no way implied death. Please read the original article where I explain how that is not a death threat and how the analogy of Islam being a cancer has been used a few times by Spencer’s crew.

            http://spencerwatch.com/2010/11/08/spencer-upset-muslims-take-on-extremists/#comment-2026

            Now remind me where exactly did Robert Spencer clarify his comment that Danios should receive 101 lashes?

            The term “Moderate” implies that there is something so inherently unmoderate in Islam that you need to exercise caution when it comes to being a Muslim. I object to the term. That doesn’t mean I’m now going to start blowing things up.

            “You sound very sympathetic to Osama bin Laden and the poor, poor Muslims overseas for someone who doesn’t believe 9/11 was justified. ”

            I get it, you lost my challenge. I asked you to prove me whether Osama bin Laden used the Quran or was motivated by his own political desire. You failed. It’s cool. Don’t cry.

            And I don’t sympathise with him or what he did. I, as a Muslim, condemn what he did. It would be nice if you could condemn the actions of American troops in Iraq.

            “leads me to believe you are probably somebody the FBI should have their eye on.”

            Yeah, you’re right. I’ll hand myself in right now for the crime of “being too Mooslim”.

        • Anhi, you still haven’t explained how the people attacked are victimizers.

          Gotta follow Muhammad’s bloodbath of an example, am i rite?

          The wars Muhammad (PBUH) participated in are nothing compared to those in the Bible. The Muslims killed only about 70 out of 900 pagans at the Battle of Badr, about 45 out of 3,000 at Uhud, and the casualties when they conquered Mecca were 0.

          And war is deceit.

          And are you implying that the Muslims staged the whole thing? Wow, you’re deluded.

          • Don’t forget the 600-900 surrendered foes he savagely beheaded in Banu Qurayza. Oh, and the millions killed in Muhammad’s name long after he died.

          • Don’t forget how they allied with the Pagans against the Muslims, consequently breaking their treaty. Also don’t forget the bloody warfare of the Bible, which again, is far bloodier than anything the early Muslims did.

          • Typical defence of a failing loon: Bringing out the Banu Qurayza incident.

            You know it and I know it: They committed treason and were executed accordingly. This punishment is similar to that prescribed by the Torah and the Old Testament. Deuteronomy 20:10-16

            “10 When you march up to attack a city, make its people an offer of peace. 11 If they accept and open their gates, all the people in it shall be subject to forced labor and shall work for you. 12 If they refuse to make peace and they engage you in battle, lay siege to that city. 13 When the LORD your God delivers it into your hand, put to the sword all the men in it. 14 As for the women, the children, the livestock and everything else in the city, you may take these as plunder for yourselves. And you may use the plunder the LORD your God gives you from your enemies. 15 This is how you are to treat all the cities that are at a distance from you and do not belong to the nations nearby.

            16 However, in the cities of the nations the LORD your God is giving you as an inheritance, do not leave alive anything that breathes.”

            Anything that breathes. More peace and love from Jewish scriptures. It is important to note that this commandment, of razing a city to the ground, killing the men and enslaving the women, is for any city that resists capture.

            I would also like to add that Islam, being a religion of peace, adds a third option that doesn’t exist in Christianity and Judaism and that is of offering the city to pay Jizyah instead and continue their lives as normal.

          • Don’t forget how they allied with the Pagans against the Muslims,

            Your “perfect” prophet beheaded 600-900 unarmed, surrendered foes. What mercy! What a religion of peace!

            He was a violent, bloodthirsty, perverted warlord, and the proof is in the Qur’an. It’s no wonder why Muslims are they way they are… they worship a monster.

          • You know it and I know it: They committed treason and were executed accordingly.

            And this is why Muslims are more of a threat than the a-ver-age person. If I followed someone who committed as much barbarism and brutality as Muhammad, I would leave. Yet, Muslims live their lives thinking that what Muhammad did was perfectly acceptable. It’s no big wonder why they are beheading people, killing and raping non-Muslim women, and committing other acts such as these. Islam destroys any sense of right and wrong on a humanistic level, and forces believes to accept the morality of Muhammad and the Qur’an. Bad things ensue.

            I would also like to add that Islam, being a religion of peace, adds a third option that doesn’t exist in Christianity and Judaism and that is of offering the city to pay Jizyah instead and continue their lives as normal.

            Yeah, sounds great! All I have to do is become a slave, and my Muslim overlords will protect me! Sign me up!

          • Ahni, you are quite a funny loon. You make JihadBob seem intelligent.

            You skipped over my entire comment in which I explained to you, with reference to the Torah, that’s T-O-R-A-H. The Holy Book of the Jews. Ring any bells? Anyways, this commands Jews very clearly “do not leave alive anything that breathes.” in certain cities. See comment above for full context of the quote.

            Explain why it’s okay for Jews to raze a city to the ground and not even offer the chance to live as a dhimmi, but it’s cruel for the Prophet to do the same and spare the women, children and offer the Jizya instead if the Jews got cold feet at the start of the battle. Compared to what the Jews would have done to the Muslims, what the Prophet Muhammad did was understandable and judging the Jews by their own laws.

            “they worship a monster.”

            Lol. Classic Ahni. Schoolboy understanding of Islam. We don’t worship Muhammad. Reminds me of the time, not too long ago, when you confused the Hadith with the Quran. Well, what can we expect when you’ve had Sheikh Spencer with a PhD in Islamic studies from Google University as your teacher.

          • “Yeah, sounds great! All I have to do is become a slave, and my Muslim overlords will protect me! Sign me up!”

            Again, too funny. See the passage I quoted for you from the Jewish Holy Book. Even if you make peace, you become a slave. Once war has been initiated, even if a peace treaty is signed, the Jews will own you. And if you put up a a fight, The men will be put to the sword and the women and children enslaved. And the Jews keep yo’ booty. In this scenario, wouldn’t you rather be a dhimmi. Remember how Jewish dhimmis managed to get government positions, became embassadors, made great livelihoods as doctors and jewellers. Sure they had to pay some tax but it was sure better than the Church’s Doctrine of Perpetual Servitude.

            This is according to Jewish scriptures. The very Jews you are defending believe in these passages. Islamophobes like you get very excited when a Jihadi quotes a verse of the Quran before performing his operation. But what about the entire IDF who have Jewish prayer services before they go out and engage the enemy. Apparently “the enemy” is codeword for “anything that breathes”.

            Spencer comes to wild conclusion whilst assessing a terrorist attack. Al Qaeda terrorists could have bombed an American embassy in response to the Iraq War, but instead Spencer will say that they did it because of the Quran. Now what happens if I ignore that the IDF might be trying to protect their country, and instead blame it on the Torah. Can you see why we find problems with Islamophobes’ logic?

            Final question, would you rather have faced a Muslim army or a Jewish army in that time? Same time period, two different people.

      • The term “Moderate” implies that there is something so inherently unmoderate in Islam that you need to exercise caution when it comes to being a Muslim. I object to the term. That doesn’t mean I’m now going to start blowing things up.

        Right, because stoning people for adultery, killing people for apostasy, and requiring Jews and Christians to live under your rule is not unmoderate. Not at all.

        • So you’re saying that if someone does not do these things he automatically becomes a moderate.

          Cool, so the majority of the world’s Muslim population as well as me must be moderate. Glad we sorted that out.

    • Do tell me, Ahni, why is it that Jews are getting discriminated against in modern, democratic, secular America? For a country that goes on about “religious freedom”, this doesn’t seem very appropriate. And weren’t you the one that was screaming at Muslims for being “anti-semitic”. The writer that you linked to thinks “all of the religious-based hate crimes added together amount to less than a drop in the bucket”. Tell that to the people who get violently beaten for their religion. Many of the hate crimes done are highly serious. It’s not just about numbers.

      I can predict you’re going to respond by saying America is still better than most other Muslim countries. Or probably bring up another instance of Christian being persecuted. Maybe throw in a MEMRI video. Maybe confuse Hadith with Quran again. Typical Ahni.

  2. Baseless ad hominens?

    *Yawn*

    Is that really the best you can do Anhi?

    Wow 1948! Any more recent examples that can match the level of violence perpetuated by Muslims on a nearly everyday basis?

    http://users.erols.com/mwhite28/warstat4.htm

    I urge you to compare the numbers of Palestinians killed by Israelis to the number of Israelis killed by Palestinians (sometimes about a hundred Muslims are killed for every one Israeli). Also take a look at the other wars of recent history and guess who often takes the brunt of the casualties (I’ll give you a clue: it’s not morons who spend their time hating Muslim).

    In almost every war of the 20th century involving Muslims and non-Muslims, it’s civilian Muslims who take the vast majority of the casualties. However, I doubt pointing out facts can be of any help, since your head is so far up Robert Spencer’s ass it’s at a point of no return.

  3. Anhi, why are you constantly mentioning Jews and Israel? It seems that every one of your posts is an off-topic claim (libel) that all Muslims hate Jews.

      • No one is shooting you. But you have problems condemning people that shoot Muslims for no reason.

        And I have a strong feeling that what you say is not in the Quran, at least the way that you have put it.

        And if you are the Messenger that is here to liberate the Jews, then please answer the questions I have put before you.

  4. Typical defence of a failing loon: Bringing out the Banu Qurayza incident.

    Yeah, I’m sure it’s a real inconvenient fact for you liars who go around trying to convince the world how “peaceful” your religion is.

    • Was it too much “taqqiya-spray” for you to handle? Many Loons have tried this included your comrade, JihadBob, over at LoonWatch. One by one, they all failed. It’s funny how you still treat it like this is the Muslims’ weakness. We’re well aware of it and have given you a wide variety of reasons why it was justifiable given the time and the punishment the Jews and Meccans would have dealt upon the Muslims had they won.

      And do tell, Ahni, what happened to the Iraqis stuck in Baghdad as American planes carpet bombed their city? Or what happened to the Germans stuck in Dresden as Allied forces fired incendiary weapons at the city? It seems that America — modern, democratic, secular America — seems to love sacking cities too.

  5. Coming from somebody who doesn’t know the difference between the Qur’an and Hadith…I think it’s safe to say that anything Ahni in relation to them should not be taken seriously by any sane person.

    ^ Or did I just betray my bloodlust in my taqiyya-spray? Or maybe I’ve just pledged my allegiance to Osama bin Laden. Or maybe I believe that 9/11 wasn’t justified. Somehow in the above 3 lines I must’ve given the FBI enough for them to keep an eye on me…I guess the mist of my taqiyya is blinding me. But I’m sure Ahni can magically read between the lines and look into my mind…as he does with the rest of the world’s 1.6 billion Muslims.

  6. Yeah what a hate crime carried out by a couple punks. I’m sure they were fresh out of their anti-jihad camp somewhere in the mountains of Colorado where they had been pumped full of hate and malice and trained in the deadly art of vandalism before they perpetrated this heinous crime.

    • Your sarcasm doesn’t change the fact that it is still a hate crime. It was a crime, and it was motivated by hate. Therefore, it is a “hate crime”. It can be nothing else.

    • All I can see from Outsider’s comment is that he is not happy that the Muslims weren’t assaulted severely enough.

      “They proceeded to damage cars in the parking lot and were then confronted by two members of the centre.   The members were then assaulted with golf clubs before others intervened and detained the attackers until police arrived.”

      They were pumped up with hate, otherwise no one randomly walks into the car park of an Islamic Centre with golf clubs and batters the first Mooslims they see. You obviously haven’t read the article. This wasn’t a case of simple vandalism.
