The Cincinnati chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-Cincinnati) today asked the FBI to investigate a threatening e-mail sent to an Ohio mosque that was targeted by bombs in 2005.
CAIR-OH reported that the Islamic Association of Cincinnati, often referred to as the “Clifton mosque,” received an e-mail December 11 that stated in part: “You should know that you are not wanted in Cincinnati. . .We don’t want you here. Mohammad is a joke. Go back to your desert. Beware. We may just declare jihad on you.”
Almost five years ago to the day, the same mosque was targeted by two pipe bombs in a case that has yet to be solved. In 2006, the mosque received a phone threat and a car full of men warning they were “going to bomb this place” drove past the facility.
