A total of four threatening letters have been sent to mosques requesting for Muslims to "to pack your bags and get out". The letters were written and sent by an anonymous source, they were mailed to three mosques in California; The Islamic center of Long Beach, a Mosque in Claremont in Southern California and to Evergreen Islamic Center in the Northern California city of San Jose. Another letter was sent to the Islamic Center of Savannah, Georgia, all four letter were identical
The letter read:
"To the children of Satan,
You Muslims are a vile and filthy people. Your mothers are whores and your fathers are dogs. You are evil. You worship the devil. But your day of reckoning has arrived.
There's a new Sherrif in town - - President Donald Trump. He's going to cleanse America and make it shine again. And, he's going to start with you Muslims. He's going to do you Muslims what Hitler did to the Jews. You Muslims would be wise to pack your bags and get out of Dodge.
This is a great time for patriotic Americans. Long live President Trump and God bless the USA!!
Americans for a better way"
CAIR was sent pictures of the letter and released a statement on their Facebook page. CAIR-LA Director Hussam Ayloush responded in a statement “This hate campaign targeting California houses of worship must be investigated as an act of religious intimidation, and our state’s leaders should speak out against the growing anti-Muslim bigotry that leads to such incidents,”
In response to the letter, executive director of CAIR-GA, Edward Ahmed Mitchell said, "Although anti-Muslim bigotry has surged since Election Day, our community fears God, not anonymous hate mail, whoever sent these letters should know that they have only strengthened our resolve to keep practicing our faith, defending our rights and building bridges with our neighbors."
Members of CAIR have planned to visit Savannah and engage in an interfaith outreach program to combat the hate-filled letter mailed to the Islamic Center of Savannah.
