Judaism, Christianity, America: a jihadi trifecta.
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A Brooklyn man is facing hate crime charges after he allegedly destroyed a crucifix and burned an American flag at church and later set fire to a yeshiva and synagogue.
Ali Alaheri, 29, was charged with criminal mischief as a hate crime.
Police said Alaheri knocked down and destroyed a large crucifix statue outside St. Athanasius Church in Bensonhurst.
Alaheri is also accused of burning an American flag outside the rectory….
“It was a terrible morning. It was probably the saddest day in my life, to see this desecration of a cross of Jesus and the desecration of the flag,” Monsignor David Cassato told CBS2 the day it happened….
The Department of Justice says on Wednesday, Alaheri deliberately set fire to a yeshiva and synagogue on 36th Street in Brooklyn.
Surveillance video allegedly shows Alaheri piling garbage bags against the side of the building and lighting them on fire….
Later that same day, Alaheri also allegedly attacked a man wearing traditional Hasidic garb.
