Prayers and Support for the Muslims of St. Louis

Filed under: Islamophobia, Muslim Americans — Tags: , , — Imam Mahdi Bray @ 6:36 pm

We are calling on all the believers to offer your prayers to the Creator for the protection of the Islamic Community Center in St. Louis, MO which has come under threat by the instigation of right-wing anti-Muslim bloggers.This mosque stared as a humble effort by a handful of believers in St. Louis to build a house of worship for Bosnian refugees who had been the victims of a murderous genocide and came to St. Louis for the promise of freedom and a better life.

From what I have been told the City of St. Louis has shown a true spirit of hospitality and warmth in welcoming the Bosnians; but there are a few bad apples in every barrel and some of these are being egged on by right-wing bloggers to do damage to the mosque and the minaret under construction.

We are calling on federal and local law-enforcement to take this threat seriously and to investigate any credible leads and are condemning in the strongest possible terms the “incitement to terror” being spread on these ultra-conservative blogs.
