Kids at Ohio mosque sprayed with chemical: Is this terrorism?

If we're going to have the problematic notion of a hate crime on the books, then why doesn't spraying a chemical into a nursery of Muslim kids count? Because the sprayers didn't explicitly call the children "towel heads" or "camel jockeys" when they sprayed the gas? Puh-leeze.

And my money says that the "men" responsible for this horrible attack on children and infants are good, USAmerican "Christians," which only goes to show how meaningless the word "Christian" has become to USAmericans. Most people in the US are Christian purely for the tribal association and the "knowledge" that they are saved while others are damned; in other words, they are the hypocritical Pharisees denounced in the Gospels.

Unless gassing your neighbor's children somehow counts as "loving thy neighbor."
The attack came September 26–during the holy month of Ramadan–at the Islamic Society of Greater Dayton. As approximately 300 worshipers were preparing for evening prayers, they heard their children, who were in a separate room, begin coughing. Soon, the mosque had to be evacuated, as some worshipers were overcome with fumes.
According to police, it appears that two men sprayed an irritant directly through a window into a room where infants and children were waiting while parents took part in prayers. One 10-year-old girl, who was helping care for the other children, was sprayed directly in the face.
