US authorities seek authors of hateful letters to mosques

LOS ANGELES: Authorities in Los Angeles said Monday they were actively seeking the authors of a series of threatening letters sent to area mosques and urged anyone who had received similar messages to come forward.

The letters, which were addressed to the "Children of Satan," called Muslims "vile and filthy people" while praising President-elect Donald Trump and vowing that was "going to do to you Muslims what Hitler did to the Jews.
"
They were sent to three mosques in California and one in Georgia.

"Your day of reckoning has arrived," the Council on American-Islamic Relations, an advocacy organization for Muslims in the US, quoted the letter as saying. "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."

The author or authors signed the letter "Americans for a Better Way."
