Vandal(s) hits Twin Falls mosque

A red poinsettia plant hung on a background of dark gray paint Monday afternoon on the front of the Islamic Center of Twin Falls. The words “Hunt Camp?” were written in gray spray paint across plywood boards covering windows Saturday night. The poinsettia and the paint were left after members of the Islamic Center already painted over the words scrawled across the new Islamic Center that’s still being built. Imad Eujayl, spokesman for the Islamic Center of Twin Falls, first noticed the vandalism when he arrived to do some work around the old Islamic Center next door. He called the Twin Falls Police Department to report the incident and learned that it had already been called in by another person. Eujayl said the center is short on funds, which is why the building’s windows are boarded up for the winter. Last year, a special-use permit was approved so members of Islamic Center of Twin Falls could expand and erect a new building on its site/Tetona Dunlap, Twin Falls Times News. More here.
