California Mosques Receive Letters From Trump Supporter Threatening Genocide

Multiple mosques in California received identical copies of a letter telling them them that President-elect Donald Trump is “going to do to you Muslims what Hitler did to the jews” [sic]. The letters coincide with an increase in anti-Muslim harassment and violence across the country.

The handwritten note was sent to Islamic centers in Long Beach, Claremont, and San Jose. It calls Muslims “vile and filthy people,” saying “your day of reckoning has arrived.”

The Council on American-Islamic Relations has documented 100 anti-Muslim incidents across the country since the Nov. 8 election, and the Southern Poverty Law Center has noted 700 incidents targeting various minority groups. The FBI noted a 67% increase in anti-Muslim hate crimes during 2015.
