Vandals smashed many of the ground floor windows at a Rexdale mosque yesterday, the day after one of the largest terrorism sweeps in the country, leaving some Toronto Muslims concerned for their safety.
More than two dozen windows were smashed at the International Muslim Organization of Toronto, and the windshields of several parked cars were broken between late Saturday night and early yesterday morning. [Link]
Prime Minister Stephen Harper moved to diffuse an angry backlash from Muslim Canadians in the wake of the weekend's stunning Toronto terrorism sweep, condemning mosque vandalism and praising Canada's welcoming immigration practices.
Harper told the House of Commons the Conservative government condemns all acts of supposed faith-based violence as well as vandalism targeting any organization or religion. [Link]
