Shocker: Regular at Houston Mosque Charged With Arson After Fire

Weird how these bogus hate crimes keep winding up being committed by Muslims themselves.

A Houston man has been arrested in connection with a suspected arson at a mosque on Christmas Day.

A spokeswoman for the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives confirmed that the man was arrested early Wednesday, sometime after midnight, and appeared in court 7 a.m. Wednesday.

The suspect, Gary Nathaniel Moore, 37, of Houston, appeared in court at 7 a.m., spokeswoman Nicole Strong said.

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

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

Though the suspect said he was a regular at the mosque, MJ Khan, president of the Islamic Society of Greater Houston, which operates the mosque, said he was unfamiliar with Moore. “We are just looking into it ourselves,” he said Wednesday morning after learning of the arrest.

“We are really very surprised and saddened by this whole thing,” said Khan.

Sure you are.

    And the hits just keep coming. The imam says even though the prep was there 5 times a day to pray be was unfamiliar with
    him but rest assured mosque personnel are looking into the incident, insert major eye roll here * for that and thank allah just as soon as he finishes blowing the family goat.
    Hard to say which bunch of morons are more stupid as the race continues and they’re neck and neck. The lefty’s with their phony hate crimes including rape and the scummy muslims, but I think the muslims have the edge because of their violence.
    Time to lock and load boys and girls and start cleaning the country.
