This mosque recently burned down, which was also touted as an anti-Muslim hate crime. Meanwhile, the Seattle Times treats these threats as a clear incidence of an anti-Muslim hate crime, only off-handedly noting that the perpetrator, Kamal Samater, “self-identifies as a Muslim,” and making no attempt to explain why a man who “self-identifies as a Muslim” would threaten people at a mosque and declare “there is no place in America for Muslims.” He could simply be insane, but in light of the very many hate anti-Muslim hate crimes that turn out to have been fabricated by Muslims, the Seattle Times could at least have looked into the possibility that this was another — but that, of course, would have required the Seattle Times to be a legitimate news source, rather than just part of the establishment propaganda media. Yet there are precedents: for example, here are four instances of Muslims faking “anti-Muslim hate crimes” against mosques.
“Man charged with hate crime in alleged assassination threats at Bellevue mosque,” by Sara Jean Green, Seattle Times, January 12, 2017:
A 36-year-old Auburn man was charged this week with malicious harassment, a hate crime, for allegedly threatening to kill members of a Bellevue mosque and declaring “there is no place in America for Muslims,”according to King County prosecutors.
Kamal Samater — who Bellevue police say self-identifies as Muslim — was arrested Jan. 6 in the parking lot of the Islamic Center of Eastside, also known as Bellevue Masjid, in the 14000 block of Main Street. Members of the mosque were preparing and serving food as part of a service when the incident occurred just after 1:30 p.m.
Jailed in lieu of $250,000 bail, Samater was also charged with felony harassment, accused of threatening to kill the first man he encountered in the mosque’s parking lot, court and jail records show.
According to the charges, the alleged victim recognized Samater, who had previously shown up at the mosque asking for money. Samater aggressively approached the man and told him, “I’m going to take care of you and sweep you,” say the charges.
The alleged victim says he felt threatened and terrified as Samater closed the distance between them and told him he was “going to assassinate every one of us” and yelled that “there is no place in America for Muslims,” according to charging papers.
