Is bad driving now considered an anti-Muslim hate crime?

A large truck allegedly entered the Islamic Community Center of Laurel, Maryland parking lot and backed into the side of the mosque – INTENTIONALLY – according to CAIR. The mosque, which was unoccupied at the time of the incident, sustained property damage to its awning and railings.

“In light of the hostile political climate impacting the American Muslim community, and because of the spike in hate crimes and threats targeting Muslims and their institutions, we urge federal law enforcement authorities to add their resources to the investigation to help bring the perpetrators to justice and to establish a motive for this disturbing crime,” said designated terrorist group CAIR Maryland Outreach Manager Dr. Zainab Chaudry.
