"Oldest trick in the book? Shaytan stirs drama between people right before Ramadan that they carry into the sacred month. Happens every single year, yet people still fall for it, ruining their Ramadan before it even starts. Will you?" - Sh. Mohammad Elshinawy

“There is an actual terrorist that burned down three black churches in Louisiana. How many times have you seen his face and his name in the news?

This has reached a level of ridiculousness that is beyond guilt by association. It’s just made up.”
From my interview with Snopes about all the conspiracies that Muslims were behind the terrible fire at the Notre Dame Cathedral.
