Man gets 30 years for setting fire to Orlando gunman’s mosque

Confessed arsonist Joseph Schreiber doesn’t look white. Could he be a Jew?

Schreiber has a criminal record and a history of making anti-Muslim statements on the Internet.

He destroyed the Orlando gay nightclub shooter’s mosque by setting it on fire.

One source I consulted claims that his harsh sentence is related to his prior record as a felon, although no details of his earlier crimes were provided except for mention of an armed robbery.


he man accused of setting fire to a mosque frequented by Pulse Nightclub shooter Omar Mateen has been sentenced to 30 years in prison after pleading no contest to arson, according to St. Lucie County Prosecutor Steve Gosnell.

Joseph Schreiber, 32, was accused of setting fire to the Islamic Center of Fort Pierce on the evening of September 11, 2016. Mateen, who killed 49 people at the Orlando nightclub in June, had attended the mosque.

No one was inside when the fire started, authorities said. St. Lucie County crews responded after two drivers called 911 to report flames on the building’s roof.

“Surveillance footage from cameras on the building revealed that a white or Hispanic male arrived on motorcycle at approximately 11:38 p.m.,” according to a statement released at the time by the St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office. “In the video, it appears he is carrying paper and a bottle of some type of liquid. The male approaches the northeast side of the building and a flash is seen, presumably when the fire ignited. The male is then seen running from the building.”

Schreiber, a Floridian, was identified and arrested in connection with the fire two days later. He was charged with arson of a structure evidencing prejudice.

Gosnell said Schreiber’s plea of no contest Monday was adjudicated as a guilty plea.

Mateen had attended the Islamic Center of Fort Pierce since 2003, Imam Syed Shafeeq Rahman told CNN last year. Mateen usually came for Friday prayers before the rampage at the Orlando nightclub on June 12.

Rahman said the mosque preached a peaceful message.

“So far, as we here in Fort Pierce are concerned, we are always very conscious — consciously speaking about peace, about love, about unity,” Rahman told CNN in a previous interview. “We came to this country; this country gave us everything.”

The mosque had also been attended by Moner Mohammad Abu-Salha, a Florida man who became the first known American suicide bomber in Syria.

One of the mosque’s attendees told CNN that the Fort Pierce Islamic Center was “like any other mosque.”

“It’s simple, friendly,” Bedar Bakht said in June. “Our imam is very good at explaining things. We never hear any stupid things coming out from anybody. It’s very low key.”

A building isn’t the problem. That’s what’s wrong with burning down a mosque.

The problem is the presence of Muslims on American soil. Joseph Schreiber would have done better if he persuaded a few Muslims to leave for their homelands.

  1. Here’s a larger photo of him. Seems to be jewish or a jew wannabe.

    According to The New York Daily News, Rabbi Bruce Benson of the Temple Beth El Israel in Port St. Lucie “told reporters the alleged arsonist attended his synagogue for about a month last spring” but “didn’t leave a violent impression and only silently studied the Torah.”

    • From Heavy:

      A Facebook page that appears to be Schreiber’s shared a Republican National Committee photo on Trump/Pence that bears the slogan “The team that will make America great again!” He wrote that he was single, is a student, lives in Florida, and was from New York. His Facebook page also contains Jewish symbology.
      Like you say, Jew or Jew wannabee.

  2. Definitely dusky/dark skin, perhaps of Semitic or Persian ancestry. My link shows larger photo and his close cropped hair seems curly or kinky. Something like this:

  3. He burnt down a mosque..bravo..he did something,couldn’t care if he a frigging Eskimo or a little green alien. HE DID SOMETHING . Give the man a bloody medal!

  4. Something fishy about this story. When someone pleads guilty or no contest they get a reduced sentence. This guy gets 30 years and the evidence against him was almost nil. Nobody inside when he threw the Molotov. He could have fought the rap and won. He was an experienced criminal and knew about security cameras. Some thing does not add up here – unless he is mentally ill.

    If he was smarter he would not have ridden his own motorcycle to the mosque, if that is what he did. He just had one molotov cocktail – why not walk the last half mile, after a bus ride, or have his car parked a few blocks away? Wear a hoodie – Coons know to do that, why would a Jew not know? Or a motorcycle helmet different from the one he owns, if he has one. Then later ditch the filmed helmet.

    He wanted to get caught? Will he really be behind bars for 30 years or will he be in Israel 6 months from now? Is this guy a homo or a homo supporter?

  5. 30 years! For burning a building.

    Whether this is real, fake, or a bit of both the message is clear:

    Resist white genocide in any meaningful way and they’ll take you out of commission permanently.
