32-year-old Joseph Michael Schreiber (below) has been arrested for allegedly setting fire to the Florida mosque that was attended by both the Orlando gay nighclub mass murdering Muslim terrorist and the Muslim-American Taliban who became a suicide bomber in Syria.
HEAVY(h/t Emma) Authorities say the man faces an arson charge with Florida’s hate crime enhancement, adding that could bring up to 30 years in prison in event of a conviction.
Thompson said a search warrant was executed at Schreiber’s home, where investigators reported finding evidence linked to the arson, as well as anti-Islamic social media posts. The Sheriff’s Department alleged that “an examination of Schreiber’s social media account also shows multiple anti-Islamic posts and comments.”
On Facebook, Schreiber shared a Republican National Committee photo on Trump/Pence that bears the slogan “The team that will make America great again!” He wrote that he was single, is a student, lives in Florida, and was from New York. His Facebook page also features photos of the Muslim Dome of the Rock and al-Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount as well as some kind of Jewish symbology.
He also shared news of a Central Park explosion that was not deemed terrorism related, about Saudi Arabian links to 9/11, and an article headlined, “Only a demented fool believes Islam is not a problem.” Schreiber’s Facebook page also contains rhetoric against President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.
On July 12, a post on the page reads, “IF AMERICA truly wants peace and safety and pursuit of happiness they should consider all forms of ISLAM as radical ,the truth is that there is no such a thing as radical ISLAMIC extremism…ALL ISLAM IS RADICAL , and should be considered TERRORIST AND CRIMANALS and all hoo participate in such activity should be found guilty of WAR CRIM until law and order is restored in this beautiful free country , all who agree with this statement ,like it and make a comment.”
Pulse nightclub mass murderer Omar Mateen attended prayers at the Fort Pierce mosque in the months before the shooting, reported NBC News.CBS News said another terrorist, Moner Mohammad Abu Salha, “the American Taliban who became a suicide bomber in Syria, also went to that mosque.”
Schreiber “is known to law enforcement and as such qualifies as a prison release re-offender that would impose a 30 year minimum mandatory sentence,” said the statement from the Sheriff’s Department.
