Minneapolis FBI says mosque bombing top priority

The small blast broke a window and set an imam's office on fire in the Dar Al Farooq mosque Saturday at around 5 a.m., the Star Tribune reported Sunday. "He has to come here and at least express his feelings and say this is bad", Omar said. An explosive device went off near the imam's office, causing damage but no injuries, and the FBI is investigating the attack as a possible hate crime.

Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton, meanwhile, needed all of one day to describe the bombing as a "criminal act of terrorism", and an "unthinkable, unforgivable" event.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has announced a $10,000 reward for any information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for Saturday's attack in Bloomington.

Tying that attack in with an unrelated bomb in New York, Trump tweeted he was "thinking of the victims, their families and all Americans!"

The comment underscored concerns from Democrats and progressives activists who believe that Mr. Trump has applied a double-standard to hate crimes by jumping at the opportunity to speak out against those committed against Christians, but moves slower when Muslims are targeted. "It's an attack on all faith communities".

The difference, of course, between the Minnesota attack and the incidents Trump likes to tweet about is that Muslims were the victim.

The FBI has taken the lead on the investigation, but has not yet said whether it has identified any suspects or a motive for the attack.

Nobody was hurt in the explosion, which happened just before morning prayers on Saturday, but the blast damaged the imam's office across the hall from the worship space.

The Minnesota mosque's executive director, Mohamed Omar, told the Associated Press on Monday that the congregation does not have enough funds to buy security cameras outside of the compound. In the past, the White House has said the president is simply not able to address every incident.

"While it is fortunate that no lives were lost, and the physical damage is repairable, the Federal Bureau of Investigation recognizes the pain and anger of our communities any time a place of worship is attacked and we will work hard to hold those responsible accountable", Special Agent in Charge Rick Thornton said in a statement on Monday.

Mr. Gorka said that there have been a series of alleged hate crimes in recent months that have "actually been "propagated by the left".

"This is an act of terrorism".

"I'm sure the President will do that", he said.
