Yet another US mosque or Islamic center has reportedly been attacked, in the latest indication of the effect that Donald Trump's Muslim entry ban is having on America.

In an August 6 update to the above story, The Guardian reports that the mosque serves the Somali community and that Minnesota has the largest such community in the US.

The Guardian report also points out:

"Saturday's bombing comes amid a rise in reports of anti-Muslim incidents in the US, including arson attacks and vandalism at mosques, harassment of women wearing head coverings and bullying of schoolchildren. Recently in Minnesota, an Islamic cemetery in Castle Rock Township reported it had been vandalized with spray pained profanities ans swastikas."

It will also be remembered that on November 6, 2016, only two days before the election, Trump made a speech in Minnesota in which he accused Somali immigrants of supporting terrorism and attacked them as a "disaster" for Minnesota.

Somalia is also on the list of six almost 100 per cent Muslim countries whose citizens are banned from entering the US purely because of their nationality according to Trump's executive order which is now before the US Supreme Court.

Is this attack one more example of the law of cause and effect, and of the fact that words have consequences?
