Burning of Mosque Building Site in Tennessee Was Arson

The fire at the building site of a mosque in Murfreesboro, Tennessee became part of the debate about the mosque at Ground Zero. The Tennessee firefighters who fought the blaze said they smelled diesel from the fire that engulfed a dump truck near the site of the mosque, and another dump truck had the fuel pooled under it, but it was not ignited.

“The U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and FBI is offering a $20,000 reward to anyone with information leading to an arrest,” according to Yahoo News.

The idea of a mosque being put so near to Ground Zero is more than likely the message that arsonists wanted to deliver to the Islamic Mosque being planned in Tennessee. How much fury is behind such an act that would use arson to win a fight is mind-boggling.

No matter how you feel about the mosque in New York or Tennessee, certainly, endangering human and animal life as well as property to prove your point is wrong. This is terrorism, and it cannot be condoned. It’s a shame this happened, but it’s not a surprise. Americans are angry, but to use terrorism to fight terrorist is not the way for civilized people to behave.
