    Mosque&Temple attacked by Firebombs in New York
    .
    .
    (CNN) -- Video released Monday shows a person throwing a Molotov cocktail toward a residence in New York City that also serves as a Hindu temple in one of three such attacks reported by police in the city.
    .
    The other two targets on Sunday night were an Islamic center and a bodega, all of them in the Queens borough of the city, authorities said Monday.In a fourth incident, a fire damaged part of a house, but it was too early to tell whether it was a result of a Molotov cocktail and whether it was related to the other incidents, the New York Police Department said.
    .
    No one was injured in any of the incidents, according to officials.
    .
    Two video clips that were released Monday afternoon depict the scene around the residence that also functions as a Hindu temple. One shows a car slowing down, while another shows a person hurling a single, flaming object over a fence and toward the building. A fire can then be seen in the residence's front yard.An official at the mosque that was targeted, the Imam Al-Khoei Islamic Center, described how about 75 community members were heading out of the center when some spotted a fire and a light near the front door. They then found "two Molotov bombs" -- broken bottles containing flammable liquid.
    .
    "Thank God, nobody was injured and we're OK," said Maan Al-Sahlani, minister of religion at the center, which is located along the Van Wyck Expressway. "It's not major damage -- maybe because of the rain, maybe because our people tried to put down the fire."
    .
    This was the first such attack on the Islamic center, which opened in 1989, according to Al-Salhani. While he admitted that some are worried, he did not blame anyone and noted that Muslims weren't the only ones attacked."Really, we don't accuse any party or any religion or any people," Al-Sahlani said. "We just talk to the police department (and) they are working very hard to find out what's going on ... and hopefully they will get (the perpetrator or perpetrators) soon."
    .
    Gov. Andrew Cuomo condemned the attacks in a statement Monday, saying such acts "go against everything we stand for as New Yorkers and Americans." The Council on American-Islamic Relations called for police to increase security around mosques.
    .
    "Attacks on our nation's houses of worship must be condemned by all Americans and should be investigated and prosecuted using all available law enforcement resources," said Ibrahim Hooper, the national communications director for CAIR.
    .
    An investigation is ongoing.

    Think the Americans are frustrated by the Asian hold in America.

    America is one of the places were HINDUS and MUSLIMS and SIKHS of the INDIAN-SUBCONTINENT live in harmony and support each other. Both PAKISTANIS and HINDUSTANIS live in like a BROTHERHOOD and enjoy with each other. But AMREEKEES are jealous of this Brotherhood's' increasing popularity.

    All the communities should be very cautious,united and communicate with each other more.The last thing we would want is a clash between communities of Indian subcontinent(Pakis,Indian,Bangladeshis,Lankans etc)

    Quite true... still there are reports of attacks on Sikhs who are STILL mistaken for arabs or followers of OBL.

    Synagogues are firebombed all over Europe, Jewish cemeteries are desecrated regularly, and nobody cares. One incident in the States like the attack described in the article and everybody becomes unglued. It's agitprop, like the claims of the Democratic Party that if GWBush were elected, churches of African-Americans would all be burned.

    Huh - most probably the "firebombers" don't know the difference between a Mosque and a Temple, Sikhs and Taliban, etc. etc.

    Not that I'm saying that its ok to firebomb Mosques - but in general I can wager that the firebombers don't know the first thing about "Asian religions" (in their own terminology).

    New York is a very progressive city with people from all over the world. This is not a trend but an isolated unfortunate incident. Since 9/11 many Mosque have had police protection. Even though New York was the victim of the 9/11 terrorist attacks there have been only a few hate incidents.

    The good thing about Americans is that they always investigate.

    This is a one off incident, and at the very least US investigates and punishes the perpetrators according to the law of the land. When was the last time justice was delivered when such a similar thing happened in India?

    We should concentrate on our country and let the law take it's course in US. For heaven's sake, we in here talk as if US is just another SLanka or Bangladesh.
