On June 5, 2003 The Examiner reported that "genuflecting to Mecca at sunset on Monday, members of the San Francisco Islamic Society were meditating on the meaning of love... But the peaceful reverie was shattered when someone hurled an unknown object through the Society's Jones Street front door... The Islamic Society has asked San Francisco police to investigate the incident as a hate crime, backed by the Council on American Islamic Relations for Northern California, which is alarmed at a recent spate of hate crimes elsewhere in the Bay Area."
