MANTECA, CA – Two eggs, some hash browns and a side of bacon spells one word — DELICIOUS! But one breakfast item is spelling hate for a California mosque.

Dr. Mohammad Elfarra says it all started after he came out of a daily prayer service and saw the front sign and parking lot had been spray painted with the words ‘F-word Islam.’ The vandals also left strips of bacon.

“Bacon, lard or anything from the pig is prohibited by the Bible and Koran,” said Elfarra.

This isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Last year, vandals spray painted another hateful message on the sign. But members of the mosque say they’re not concerned about catching and punishing the vandals. They’re more worried that the hateful messages could turn into something far more dangerous.

The council on American-Islamic relations is asking the FBI to investigate.
