A South Florida mosque was defaced Thursday morning with profane phrases spray-painted on signs.
Someone parked at the Al Amin Islamic Center, at 7947 South Military Trail in Boynton Beach, around 12:40 a.m. and painted “F--- Islam” and “F--- ISIS” on either side of the sign.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations called the vandalism a hate crime. The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office is investigating.
South Florida is no stranger to anti-Islamic acts.
The hateful message on the Islamic Center’s sign is similar to the words painted in bright red on at Nur-Ul-Islam Academy in Cooper City in 2015 and the violent, racist email sent to the Islamic Center of Greater Miami in Miami Gardens the same weekend.
