All I know is that I’ve been to a lot of places and I will always prefer New York City.

Threats against Brooklyn mosque

In the incident, a car of men bearing Israeli flags, honking horns, and using sirens and flashing lights, drove many times around the Islamic Society of Bay Ridge, a local mosque with a large Palestinian membership. The men screamed anti-Arab slurs at worshipers who had gathered for Ramadan prayers at 4 am.
Worshipers had overflowed into the street to pray, because the mosque was filled to capacity with congregation members observing the holiday of Ramadan. As their car approached, the men repeatedly verbally assaulted those assembled in observance. According to JFREJ Board Member Audrey Sasson, “This is nothing less than direct intimidation of worshipers. During Ramadan, the Islamic Society of Bay Ridge has police presence nearly around the clock. Why did this incident occur during the one window when police were absent? It appears that the people in the car had staked out the area around the mosque and planned their assault to avoid the presence of police.”
Linda Sarsour, Director of the Arab American Association of New York, located in Bay Ridge, said, “Mosque members are in fear as a result of this incident, with deep concern that these men’s actions may portend physical violence in the future.”

This is terrifying. Why hasn’t this been in any of the papers? [Edit: The NYT covered it today.]

Same as it ever was.
