Anti-Islamic arson in Tennessee

The Islamic Center of Columbia, Tennessee was set on fire this weekend, after it was spray painted with swastikas and white supremacist slogans. On a positive note, community leaders were quick to speak out in clear terms against Islamophobia, and
"This is the first hate crime we have observed here in Middle Tennessee," said A.K.M. Fakhruddin, former president of the Islamic Center of Nashville.
Three suspects, who may face federal hate crimes charges, have been arrested.
