Yesterday Salon.com reported that a letter was sent to three California Mosques threatening violence against Muslims.
The report stated that, “the same handwritten, photocopied letter was sent last week to the Islamic Center of Long Beach, the Islamic Center of Claremont and the Evergreen Islamic Center in San Jose.”
The letter, addressed to “the children of Satan,” begins by describing “You Muslims” as being “vile and filthy people,” but, “your day of reckoning has arrived. There’s a new sheriff in town – Donald Trump,” and he will “cleanse America and make it shine again. And, he’s going to start with you Muslims.” It is signed by “Americans for A Better Way.”
These are indeed some serious threats – so serious that the police, the FBI or other law enforcement should have been the first to be notified. This would the logical approach after receiving such a menacing correspondence. You would think so, but no.
