Firebombings in NY create more Muslim "victims" while ignoring Hindu and Christians who were also attacked

Hamas-linked CAIR has issued a memo saying this series of firebombings was directed solely against Muslims.  No mention of those who also suffered, especially the Christian family who watched their home go up in flames.  No, this was all about Muslims, and how they are being targeted by "Islamophobes" and those in the "anti-Muslim" crowd. Obviously, Hamas-linked CAIR wants us to know how persecuted all those poor Muslims in America are, and that they alone are deserving of special protections.  Muslims are the new "Negroes" in the US, all non-Muslims to the back of the bus, NOW!

Media focuses on Mosque firebombed in Queens, ignores firebombing against Hindus, Christians

A series of firebombing in Queens, New York that targeted a Hindu place of worship, an African-American Christian couple’s home and a Mosque is being portrayed by the mainstream media and a Muslim advocacy group as a hate crime solely directed against Muslims.

A series of firebombs involving Molotov cocktails was directed against two homes, including one where a group of Hindus was meeting to worship, another home where an African-American Christian couple lived, a convenience store and a local mosque.

The Al-Khoei Islamic Foundation houses one of the most prominent Shiite mosques in New York. According to its website it lists branches in several cities including London, Paris, Montreal and Islamabad, Pakistan. The firebomb, made with a Starbucks bottle was thrown at the door of the center. While the door was blackened, the building did not catch fire.

Police are investigating the crime as an anti-Muslim hate crime. A spokesman for the New York Police Department told the Gazette anytime an attack is made on a Mosque or a synagogue, it is automatically investigated as a bias or hate crime.

The meeting at the Hindu home consisted of two firebombs that did not catch fire, while the home of Monty and Sonya Burnett, who are African-American and Christian, was heavily damaged.

The Burnett’s home was the most heavily damaged of all of the structures firebombed during the four attacks. It took more than 60 firefighters to get the fire under control.

While the bombings were directed at Hindus and Christians as well as Muslims, one would not know that from reading much of the mainstream press coverage of the event.

The New York Times said in the lead paragraph that “police were investigating (the firebombings) as a possible bias crime against Muslims.” Nowhere in the story does it mention the attack on the Hindu worshippers or the Christian family, simply referring to them as houses that were bombed.

(...)(Robert) Spencer went on to say that CAIR’s ignoring the firebombing of the black Christian family and the Hindus shows the agency’s isn’t really interested in hate crimes against other groups but simply want to use the attacks to their advantage.

“CAIR did not mention anything about the Hindus or Christians when they issued their release. This just shows how self-serving their claims of victimhood really are,” Spencer said. “They called for increased police patrols against mosques, but they didn’t say anything about calling for protection for Hindu or Christian places of worship.”

Also in the same Greeley Gazette:
a marvelous story (sarcam) about "moderate Islam" and their goal of killing all of the Jews.

Interesting, why would it be anti muslem if it also targets other religious groups. It's very confusing.
