Because of it, the probability that this was an act of terrorism defined by what terrorism is seems a likely and valid reason. Though we will have to investigate and see if we can't find suspects and figure it out when we do. But it's still a likely probability. I don't see what your objection is to it, or how you can say I claim only Americans can be labeled as "terrorists" or any of your other outrageous claims you were trying to make.

    Holy Crap! Why is it so hard to get you to type out a clear answer? Why are you dancing around this question? Gheeze. Just answer, cuz we all know what you really mean.

    I answered your stupid question. And nothing I said supports your accusations against me. You're just trying to harp on something which isn't there. Sorry your imagination ran away for a bit, but that's your failing. What is written there is clear; I explained it fully. You're getting pissy because I didn't say exactly what you wanted; but what you wanted was imaginary so you don't get it. I meant as I said and it's all in clear English. Sorry if it didn't support your preconceived notions or assumptions.

    This is simply disgusting. I hope they find the culprits and punish them to the fullest extent of the law. I live in Nashville, and I haven't seen this on the news or even heard about it until now. What I think is also wrong, is if this was the other way around, the media would be all over it. If Muslims burned a church or secular community center we would all know about it, and I'm sure it would reach the national level. Behavior like this is truly disgusting, and many who protest Islam for being an oppressive religion commit the same crime when they burn mosques and Islamic sites. I am a Christian, not a Muslim, but I do believe in religious freedom for everyone and to have religious buildings respected.

To deny it and make any other claim is not only foolish, but absord!
    Have suspects in this case even been identified?

    Ben Goodwin of the Rutherford County Sheriff's Department confirmed to CBS Affiliate WTVF that the fire, which burned construction equipment at the future site of the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro, is being ruled as arson.

    Special Agent Andy Anderson of the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives told CBS News that the fire destroyed one piece of construction equipment and damaged three others. Gas was poured over the equipment to start the fire, Anderson said.
    Sounds more like an insurance job, to me.

    Coming from our resident fire inspector, this has instant credibility.

    That you think you're that clever is cute, but like I said in reality, we see you.

    FWIW, there are hundreds of stories about this incident on pretty much every major news network.

    Feds investigate fire at site of future Tennessee mosque - CNN.com

    The Associated Press: Fire at site of future Tenn. mosque troubles city

    Muslims see Tenn. mosque fire as sign of hate - USATODAY.com
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    If it's a hate crime, then why just burn the equipment? Why not burn the actual structure? Sooner, or later, common sense has to come into play. But, I know, the leftists just can't let this, "hate crime", go without notice. A frame of mind that consistantly negates common sense.
