Default Man charged with setting Houston mosque afire says he was a devout attendee

First, a reminder of the fire and what CAIR had to say about it...

Police, ATF Investigating Christmas Day Fire At Houston Mosque

Quote:
Local police and officials with the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) are investigating a fire at a Houston mosque on Christmas Day that caused significant damage to the building.

Nobody was injured in the Friday fire at the Islamic Society of Greater Houston, officials told Houston television station KTRK. About 80 firefighters battled the blaze at the mosque, according to KTRK.

Law enforcement officials do not yet know the cause of the fire, but ATF officials told Houston television station KHOU that there were multiple origins for the fire. An ATF official said that numerous origins was suspicious, as it could suggest arson, according to KHOU.

M.J. Khan with the Islamic Society of Greater Houston told Click 2 Houston that the mosque did not receive any threats or see anything suspicious ahead of the fire.

Mustafaa Carroll, the director of the Houston chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), called on law enforcement to investigate whether the fire was a hate crime.

"Because of the recent spike in hate incidents targeting mosques nationwide, we urge law enforcement authorities to investigate a possible bias motive for this fire," Carroll told Click 2 Houston

And then the truth comes out...

Man charged with setting Houston mosque afire says he was a devout attendee

Quote:
A Houston man has been arrested in connection with a suspected arson at a mosque on Christmas Day, but the motive for the crime remains a mystery, with the suspect maintaining he was a regular at the mosque.

A spokeswoman for the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives confirmed that the suspect, 37-year-old Gary Nathaniel Moore of Houston, was arrested early Wednesday. Moore appeared in court at 7 a.m., spokeswoman Nicole Strong said, and bond was set at $100,000.

According to a charging instrument released by the Harris County District Clerk, Moore told investigators at the scene that he has attended the storefront mosque for five years, coming five times per day to pray seven days per week.

Moore said he had been at the mosque earlier on Dec. 25 to pray, and had left at about 2 p.m. to go home, according to authorities and court papers. Moore said he was the last person to leave the mosque and saw no smoke or other signs of fire when he departed, authorities said. He maintained he had returned to the scene after hearing about the fire from a friend.

Wouldn't surprise me if the bacon incident will turn out to the same. You know them little snots.

Oh and what ever happened to the pigs head.

So Jamal Moore sets his own place of worship on fire using lighter fluid and he was the last one to leave. (Did he have a key?) The same news sources who generously gave CAIR and it's narrative space after the fire are backing off any speculation of motive but obviously report that this probably isn't a hate crime.

http://abc13.com/1140625/


As for Moore, the lack of motive is what is most puzzling for those in the Muslim community.

"We're really concerned about what could have, what is his issue?" asked Mustafa Carroll with the Council on American-Islamic Relations. "What could have caused him to do something like this?"

Possibilities could include propaganda and insurance money.

So I guess I don't get it. Are you saying that it's odd that this time it was an insider? I agree. Are you saying it was reasonable to suspect it might have been a hate crime? I agree that that is reasonable.

I don't agree that it was a hate crime, whether it was caused by an infidel or a Muslim. Nobody does an illegal act against another out of love, so the label is moot.

I'm not...It's not odd at all...

Hoaxes and fake victimhood incidents are becoming the standard and actual incidents are becoming the odd man out...

It wasn't reasonable...There was zero evidence showing a hate crime...The ONLY reason anyone would think that is due to partisan pre-conceived notions...

Is this your opinion or a fact?

It could have been. They called for an investigation to determine that. Still don't see an issue.
