Dear Gods! The fight was dirty before. I'm not sure what to call it now.

My sister lives in Dayton. I was on the phone with her when she picked up her newspaper a couple of days ago. She saw that a DVD had been inserted and she wasn't sure (because she didn't have a hand free to pull it out and check it, being on the phone with me and all) but she thought it was this hate film called Obsession: Radical Islam's War Against the West It is being distributed in battleground states (even Oregon, and I didn't know Oregon was a battleground state!) via newspaper inserts and direct mail by a group called the Clarion Fund. Who is behind this Clarion Fund? The filmmaker. Who funds this Clarion Fund? I can't figure that out in the short amount of time I have before I must leave for work but I suspect this will be today's obsessive search at lunchtime. The horrible implications of this "advertisement" have already come to fruition. See below. The event happened a day or two after my sister found that DVD in her newspaper. (She is protesting to her newspaper, but since when she canvasses for Obama she sometimes meets people who "would NEVER vote for no n****r for anything" she suspects she's in the minority in Dayton.

Chemical irritant empties Islamic Society of Greater Dayton's mosque

DAYTON — Baboucarr Njie was preparing for his prayer session Friday night, Sept. 26, when he heard children in the Islamic Society of Greater Dayton coughing. Soon, Njie himself was overcome with fits of coughing and, like the rest of those in the building, headed for the doors.

"I would stay outside for a minute, then go back in, there were a lot of kids," Njie said. "My throat is still itchy, I need to get some milk."

Njie was one of several affected when a suspected chemical irritant was sprayed into the mosque at 26 Josie St., bringing Dayton police, fire and hazardous material personnel to the building at 9:48 p.m.

Someone "sprayed an irritant into the mosque," Dayton fire District Chief Vince Wiley said, noting that fire investigators believe it was a hand-held spray can.

According to fire dispatch communications, a child reported seeing two men with a white can spraying something into a window. That child was brought to the supervising firefighter at the scene.

Wiley would not discuss that report, but said the investigation has been turned over to police. Police were not commenting.
