As some you know I have moved to warmer climes to work for an Alabama-based organization concerned with hate groups and hate crimes.
I have been tasked with collecting news stories about NYC-based anti-Muslim hate crimes and violence in recent weeks since the "mosque" controversy started. These need to be verifiable stories which means for these purposes that they need to have appeared in print in a reputable location. No anecdotes. Blogs only if reputable. Not much time to fact check as this is a rush job. We will be doing more in-depth coverage later, never you fear. Since y'all live in NYC, you are definitely going to be more aware of stuff that maybe hasn't made national news yet than I.
Please include links, name of publication, date, etc. when possible.
I'm already aware of the drunk Queens man who peed on prayer rugs in a mosque (and if these were less serious times, I'd be making a Big Lebowski joke right about now). And that douchebag student who attacked a cabbie.
I bet there've been other incidents though.
Your help is greatly, greatly greatly appreciated.
