Little boy donates his piggy bank to vandalized mosque
WXIN ^ | 11/21/2015 | CNN Wire

After the devastating attacks in Paris, some Muslims have been threatened and even attacked.

But one little boy didn’t want to just stand by after a mosque in his hometown was desecrated.

The Islamic Center of Pflugerville, a mosque in a strip mall in the suburbs of Austin, Texas, was vandalized on Monday. On the way to morning prayers, community members of the mosque found feces smeared on the sidewalk and torn pages of the Quran, the Islamic holy book, scattered outside the center.

When her 7-year-old-son, Jack, heard about what happened to the local mosque, he wanted to help in any way he could.

He emptied out his piggy bank, scraping together $20, and went to the mosque in person to give his donation to Faisal Naeem, a board member of the Islamic Center.

The mosque reportedly responded by getting the boy a brand new iPad, which was what he was saving his money to purchase.

Yo kid, no matter what you do for or to a muslim, at the end of the day, you’re still an infidel (or Jew) and the muslim will still hate you.

I wonder how much prompting it took to create this heart-string pulling story?

Likely, we will see more as the Christmas season continues.

Media like these kinds of stories to move their narrative along.

Austin a PC abscess in the flesh of Texas.

He may be a future indoctrinated leftist, but he didn’t do too badly for himself in getting an iPad for only twenty bucks.

Obviously a set-up.

The kid’s parents made a deal with the mosque and the mosque traded the iPad for the publicity.

No different than dressing up a young boy to be a future jihadist terrorist.

Last night, the local news on Houston's Channel 11 did a story on the 'Christian duty' to take in Muslims. Every 'person on the street' they talked to was pro-refugee as were the clergy they brought on. One lady was even moved to tears as she considered the plight of 'the children'. I really do not think that story reflected the opinions of Houston.

The kid was paying his Jizya tax. Next time it won’t be voluntary.
