Domestic Terrorism Watch--Attack on Dayton Islamic Center last week

Since there is still a media blackout on this news (with exceptions of decent regional newspapers like the Boston Globe and Philadelphia Inquirer) outside of the blogosphere, I wanted to make sure no one on my flist has missed that a room full of women and children attending a Ramadan prayer service in a Dayton Islamic society center were attacked with poison gas.

This incident comes on the heels of a mass mailing in swing states of an anti-Muslim dvd by a rightwing group supporting the McCain campaign.

If you haven't read the Daily Kos link, check out faraway66's post here with info on where you can send words of support and Shakesville's post here.

Guess it only matters when it happens to white Christians. Please spread the word on this.

Not fun news to wish you all a Happy Rosh Hashanah and Ramadan on, but I wanted to include the folks who went through this attack in those good wishes for healing and renewal.
