Los Angeles: As the Donald Trump presidency starts taking roots, the extremist elements across United States look very bold. The new Nazis and extremist elements have become very bold across the nation and they became bold enough to hold their conclave in Washington, a few blocks away from the sprawling White House.
New and newer reports of hate crimes against Muslims are appearing with a regularity that was never seen in the US, not even in the post 9/11.
But what happened now has crossed every limit. Several mosques in Los Angeles and San Jose, California have received a letter threatening genocide of the entire Muslim community in the US.
The letter went on to add that the President elect Donald Trump will “do to you Muslims what Hitler did to the Jews.”
Following the incident, Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the top civil rights group in the country has called for more police protection of mosques. The Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, said 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 Los Angeles Times reported Saturday.
The letter called the American Muslims, the children of Satan and went on to 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”.
The letter further said, “There’s a new sheriff 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 to 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. Love live President Trump and God bless the USA”.
Executive director of CAIR-LA Hussam Ayloush said that such letters are creating a sort of fear among Muslims in the area. He added that L.A. County mosques were disheartened by the hateful letters and added that the “irresponsible, hateful rhetoric” of the Trump campaign has fueled “a level of vulgarity, vile hatred and anger among many self-proclaimed Trump supporters.”
He didn’t directly accuse Donald Trump for spurt in such cases and added, “I’m not saying (Trump) created racist people…He normalized it. While he might say he’s not responsible, and I respect that, I remind President-elect Trump that he has a responsibility to act as a president for all Americans.”
