FBI offers $5,000 reward after bacon found at Las Vegas mosque

ByPamela Geller on January 3, 2016

The FBI is now officially a joke.

When I first reported on this prank, the real story was not that bacon was left on the door handle of a mosque, but that Las Vegas police had launched a manhunt for the “perp.”

Las Vegas, America’s den of iniquity, gambling, prostitution, drugs …. but not bacon at a mosque. That, my friends, is Islamic law in America.

Attacks on synagogues are at record highs — real attacks with pipe bombs, swastikas,  desecration — never have we seen the FBI take real action, let alone offer vast reward sums. And in this case they did so for bacon that might have offended the sensibilities of devout Muslims.


What is noteworthy about this story is not — horror of horrors! — the bacon at the mosque. That is obnoxious and stupid, but that’s all it is: no one was hurt, no one was intimidated, no one was threatened. What is noteworthy here is the furious dhimmi overreaction of the FBI. $5,000? For some bacon?

Watch for Obama get involved in this. He could intone, “The future must not belong to those who leave bacon at mosques.” He could appoint a bacon-protection task force. They could be outfitted in grand uniforms featuring brown-and-beige stripes, to resemble a slice of bacon. Obama could name them The National Bacon Mosque Guards and commission them in an elaborate ceremony at the White House, after which they would march in formation to the nation’s mosques and take up watch against the greasy Islamophobic bacon bearers.

This story shows the lengths to which authorities in the U.S. will go to perpetuate their victimhood myth. Instead of just throwing the bacon away and dismissing it as a silly prank, it becomes part of the “climate of hate” against Muslims. You want a real “climate of hate,” check out the Christians who have been driven from their homes, exiled, killed, etc. in Iraq and Syria. No one is putting up $5,000 rewards for those who are persecuting them.

“FBI offers $5,000 reward after bacon found at Vegas mosque,” by Sally Ho, Associated Press, December 31, 2015:

LAS VEGAS (AP) — The FBI is offering a $5,000 reward for information that helps them find the person who put raw bacon on the door handles of a Las Vegas mosque.

The FBI said in a statement Wednesday that agents are trying to find the man seen in a surveillance video putting the meat on the entrances of the Masjid-e-Tawheed mosque. Authorities call it a desecration of the Islamic worship center.

The Quran, the holy book of Islam, prohibits Muslims from eating pork, and pigs have been used to taunt or offend Muslims.

Both the FBI and Las Vegas police say they’re investigating the case as a possible hate crime.

Las Vegas police spokesman Larry Hadfield said the bacon was wrapped on the door knobs, and was also found on the ground and fences.

Officials at the mosque couldn’t immediately be reached for comment.

The FBI said the incident happened about 3:15 a.m. Dec. 27. The culprit is described as a white man wearing a dark blue hat, jacket and black-framed glasses. He had black or dark brown hair with long, thin sideburns.

The site west of the Las Vegas Strip wasn’t damaged, and no one was hurt. The mosque was empty at the time, and the case was reported by members who came to worship later that morning….

    If only the muslims would eat fried bacon……….. They would throw rocks at 72 “virgins.” Bacon and eggs, a BLT with mayo, bean and bacon soup, we could transform the muslims into spokes people for pork. Just try it, you might like it.

  • joker

    Why not send slender bacon by post at random to any imam or mosque. Could be fun.

  • Trojan

    Look out for the backlash from Muslims. If you are white and a bit right, then fear the backlash. Remember, after every bombing or assassination, we have to prevent the backlash against the ROPers.

  • Richard Frahm

    They didn’t refrain from giving a complete description of the perp.

    But, a young white girl is shot in her head and a vague description of perp is given, leaving us clueless as to whom committed the crime. SMH…

  • Mahou Shoujo

    The authorities have made fools of themselves by elevating some harmless taunting of a pompous cult of victims, to new heights. They know it is stupid to carry on the investigation, but instead of quietly letting it go, they will try and justify their subservience to the white mosque at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. by more purchased and pre-digested indignation. There should be “bacon pride” parades past every mosque in America, With parade marshal “Miss Piggy” elected by the most pork chops she can sell.

        Obama is the only treasonous president America has ever had. He should be in prison.

        • George E. Smith

          The Founding Fathers put a “Natural Born Citizenship” requirement (i.e. both parents must be U.S.citizens) for POTUS in the Constitution. This was to keep persons with “dual loyalties” out of the office.
          Obama has no loyalty to the U.S. His loyalty seems to be to the Muslims and NWO crowd, not to us and our country.
          Those that did not vet him properly should be in prison with him.
          I would love to see him spend his last days in Gitmo. Maybe that is why he wants to close it — so it won’t be available.

    I’m guessing that the ‘perp’ was just trying to fry the bacon on the handles under the belief that Islam is a creation of Satan and the Mosque is one of the doorways into his domain thereby giving rise to the thought that the bacon would fry.
    Not so sure how many would think that though.
    Perhaps they ought to check out all the attendees of the mosque and their imams? It seems that the known perps of maliciousness towards mosques have been mostly Muslims themselves. At least if you believe what the media is saying. Or not.

    Perhaps the Government could do something useful by rewriting the Koran to exclude all the hateful verses and those that are merely inciting violence and deporting any Muslim that choses to worship the 7’th century edition of their “Holy Book” that’s filled with hateful passages.
    Will the Bacon Bandito be prosecuted for serving food without a license? Should he have placed a warning sticker stating that this was bacon and that it would be contrary to the teachings of the “prophet” to eat the doorknob?
    Or perhaps Obama should outlaw all pork products so as not to offend the sensibilities of the Islamic hoards.

  • Robert Griffith

    For some strange reason I suspect that when the individual
    responsible is uncovered it is going to be a Muslim that attends this mosque or
    linked very closely to someone who attends this mosque. It’s no coincidence that
    this incident was caught on camera. It was a performance staged for the camera.

  • Metatrona

    WHY is our tax money being used for the bacon on the doorknob puzzle? The FBI should find more important crimes to investigate. The Muslims could remove the bacon themselves and have one of their mosque members stand guard against the meat intrusion.

  • Melanie Mustain Bivens

    These things are almost always fakes. If there is video of the incident, further investigation would probably point to a member of the mosque who did this. The arson at mosques in Houston I believe ended up being a member of that mosque who set the fires.

  • IzlamIsTyranny

    What kind of “crime’ is this that the FIB would get involved? FFS, the worst thing the muslums would have to do is replace two door handles — or just wash them down. Why is the FIB offering a reward for a crime that is, at best, a misdemeanor? Or is it possible the peaceful protester will be prosecuted for some sort of federal hate crime?

    • Dorrie

      It was nothing more than a harmless prank. The fact the FBI got involved where it wasn’t warranted, is typical of this lawless administration! ALL mosques should be baconed! (new word) ;-)

    This is looking more and more like some world-wide agenda hell bent on pushing for globalist socialism.
