An anonymous envelope that said “To all (expletive) Muslims,” was left on the door of the Darul Arqum Islamic Center in Ames, Iowa. Three notes inside the envelope said “We will burn all of you,” “Leave our country” and “We hate you.”
Ames Tribune The Iowa chapter of Hamas-linked CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) is calling for a local, state and national law enforcement investigation.
“This threat to a house of worship should be investigated as a hate crime and all available resources should be devoted to bringing the perpetrator to justice,” said Miriam Amer, CAIR-IA executive director, in a statement. (Yes, because federal, state, and local law enforcement have nothing better to do than chase down anonymous letter writers)
“We view this threat as just part of a recent spike in hate incidents targeting American Muslims and their institutions nationwide.” Ames Police officers will be doing extra patrols in the area of the mosque while they continue to investigate.
