CAIR Asks FBI to Probe Iowa Mosque Vandalism
10/07/2011 | News in News/Action Alerts
"Given the number of rocks thrown at the mosque and the rising level of anti-Muslim sentiment in our society, we urge the FBI to investigate a possible bias motive for this incident," said CAIR-IA Executive Director Miriam Amer.
Last week, CAIR called on the FBI to probe a Tennessee road rage incident in which a Muslim mother and son were allegedly targeted with death threats and anti-Muslim slurs by a knife-wielding driver.
CAIR recently urged Islamic institutions and members of the Muslim community to review security procedures using advice contained in its "Muslim Community Safety Kit."
