South Florida Islamic school, mosque targeted
COOPER CITY, Fla. (AP) — Authorities in South Florida are investigating two separate incidents in which an Islamic school was spray pained and a mosque received an email vowing to kill all Muslims.
Rubina Tariq, principal at Nur-Ul-Islam Academy in Cooper City, called the Broward Sheriff’s Office Monday after finding a profane message painted on a wall at the school with 400 students. The paint was cleaned up by mid-day as students went home after taking final exams.
On Saturday, an email was sent to the Islamic Center of Greater Miami in Miami Gardens. The Miami Herald (http://hrld.us/1Z9KBuz ) reports it was filled with short, threatening sentences. The sender called Islam a “cancer” and “disease” and pledged to “kill every Muslim around the world.”
Imam AbdulHamid Samra called the email “nasty.”
Authorities are investigating.
