Islamic Society of Greater Houston in Texas, California Hit by Arson Attacks over Christmas Weekend


Two U.S. mosques have been attacked in separate incidents over the Christmas weekend. On Christmas Day, just after hundreds of people finished Friday prayers, a two-alarm fire erupted at the Islamic Society of Greater Houston in Texas. Authorities say it was intentionally set. Meanwhile, officials in California’s Central Valley are investigating a Molotov cocktail attack on the Tracy Islamic Center as a possible hate crime. A study earlier this month found hate crimes against Muslim Americans and U.S. mosques have tripled since the attacks in Paris and San Bernardino. The Council on American-Islamic Relations has reported more incidents targeting mosques this year than in any other year on record.
