Two Arizona women may face trespassing charges after live-streaming video of themselves trespassing inside a mosque while making fun of Muslims — with their children in tow.
The Arizona Republic reported that two women, identified on Facebook as Tahnee Gonzales and Liz Dauenhauer, recorded themselves entering the Islamic Community Center of Tempe and directing their children to help them tear down ads on a bulletin board to “expose” the Muslims who worship there.
Throughout the nearly 25-minute recording, which was taken off of Gonzales’ profile but re-uploaded by others, the women are heard berating Muslims.
The women, who describe themselves as “patriots” in the original video, encourage the children to take pamphlets on display at the Islamic center so that they can “expose” the people attend it. At one point the woman filming tells the children that Muslims “live off the welfare system, off our hard-earned, taxpayer-funded money.”
Officials at the mosque confirmed that they’d filed a police report against the women, and a Tempe police officer said the force was investigating the “active case.”
According to the Republic‘s Megan Cassidy, both women are part of a group that organized a “Make America Great Again” rally the previous weekend that featured Sheriff Joe Arpaio as a speaker.
Women seen on video ridiculing Muslims in a Tempe mosque were supporters of "Arizona Patriot Movement."
Same group organized last weekend's "MAGA in the Park" pep rally, which featured @RealSheriffJoe and @kelliwardaz as speakers. https://t.co/Gf9CbJ3mFB story by @mpolletta

Revealed: The real reason Trump took off for presidential retreat at Camp David
President Donald Trump took a hastily organized trip to Camp David, apparently to get away from some of his advisers and family members.
Some of his aides said the trip was a much-needed break from life in the White House, and officials declined to provide a readout of the president's calls and activities, reported CNN.
No communications staffers joined Trump on the outing, which the president announced Saturday on his Twitter account.
I am at Camp David working on many things, including Iran! We have a great Economy, Tariffs have been very helpful both with respect to the huge Dollars coming IN, & on helping to make good Trade Deals. The Dow heading to BEST June in 80 years! Stock Market BEST June in 50 years!
Israel will do ‘everything’ to stop Iran going nuclear: Netanyahu
Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Monday his country will do "everything" to prevent arch-rival Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons, during a visit by a senior Russian security official.
"Israel will not allow Iran, which calls for our destruction, to entrench on our border; we will do everything to prevent it from attaining nuclear weapons," Netanyahu said.He was speaking alongside Nikolai Patrushev, the head of Moscow's powerful security council, whose visit followed weeks of simmering tensions between Tehran and Washington in the Gulf.
Israel has carried out repeated strikes to prevent Iranian forces becoming embedded in neighbouring Syria, where both Iran and Moscow back the government of President Bashar al-Assad.
Kushner’s ‘immoral’ peace plan torn to shreds by Israeli security experts: ‘It could blow up the Middle East’
Jared Kushner's Middle East peace proposal has been widely panned by international relations experts, and now three Israeli security experts have written a scathing editorial for Politico explaining how the plan could "blow up the Middle East."
The editorial -- which was co-written by Ami Ayalon, former director of the Israeli security agency Shin Bet; Gilead Sher, former chief of staff for Prime Minister Ehud Barak; and Israeli tech entrepreneur Orni Petruschka -- argues that Kushner's peace plan is "immoral" and stands a good chance of producing the opposite of its intended outcome.
