Voicemail Threatening to ‘Drop a Bomb’ on a California Mosque Being Investigated
The incident at the Islamic Center of Tustin was reported to the Tustin Police Department on Sunday, said Sgt. Mike Van Cleve.
It appears there was no caller ID on the call, he said. We took a report and are investigating.
A spokesman for the mosque did not return phone calls Monday.
The voicemail is among several threats Southern California mosques have received over the past few weeks, said Hussam Ayloush, executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations Los Angeles chapter, or CAIR-LA, which is based in Anaheim.
A special message from the publisher…Dear Reader, because of your generous support, we have received enough funds to send many audio Bibles to Iraqi and Syrian refugees displaced by ISIS in the Middle East. Many have been distributed and received with gladness. Now, as the cold winds of winter blow in, we are seeking to also meet the physical needs of the people by providing fuel-operated heaters for the refugees and their children to stay warm.
