On Friday, Sept. 26, a “chemical irritant” was sprayed through a window of the Islamic Society of Greater Dayton mosque, where 300 worshipers were gathered for a Ramadan prayer service. The spray targeted the room where babies and children were being kept while their mothers were engaged in prayers. The service and ritual fast-breaking were interrupted so those suffering from tearing, coughing and shortness of breath could receive treatment. “It’s very disturbing,” said ISGD board member Tarek Sabagh. “Something like this has never happened before.” (Dayton Daily News, Sept. 27)
The attack came at the end of a week in which thousands of copies were distributed in Ohio of Obsession: Radical Islam’s War Against the West—the fear-mongering shockumentary being disseminated by the millions in swing states via DVDs inserted in newspapers and through the mail. This is apparently scare-tactic political campaigning by supporters of John McCain.
