One week after the terror attacks in Paris, passions in the United States are running at a fever pitch.
A public meeting about a mosque in Virginia was disrupted by a man shouting: "You are terrorists. Every one of you are terrorists. I don't care what you say, and I don't care what you think. You can smile at me, you can say whatever you want, but every Muslim is a terrorist."
The unnamed man yelled and pointed his finger at civil engineer Samer Shalaby who was presenting building plans for a mosque.
A shocked Shalaby stood and seemed to smile, which made the man angrier.
"You can smile at me, you can say whatever you want, but every Muslim is a terrorist," he ranted.
The incident, which happened earlier this week, is getting a lot of attention after a video surfaced online.
In a statement on their website, the Islamic center said: “Let us be clear: We, the Board and the Members of the Islamic Center of Fredericksburg, condemn and deplore the violent actions across the globe that have inspired such local hatred.
“We understand the fear, because extremists do not discriminate: many of their victims have been Muslims, whether in the Middle East, Africa, New York, Beirut or Paris. These extremists do not represent, nor even respect, our faith.”
