This past Sunday Muslim Center of Middlesex County (MCMC) held an Open House encouraging people to bring their friends, neighbors, co-workers, etc. to the Mosque if they wanted to come and have any questions they may have about Islam answered. This happens to be the Mosque that my family goes to. Ahead of the event threats were emailed and called in to MCMC which is located in Piscataway just minutes away from Rutgers University. This isn’t in the middle of country somewhere. This is happening in one of the most diverse parts of the country. Anti-Islam posters shoes up recently at Rutgers too.
On the 3rd of this month Piscataway Police Department had come to the Mosque to talk about increased patrols around MCMC.
The White House and Justice Department continue to be silent on these incidents to seem to be happening daily against Muslims and Jews all over the country. The silence speaks volumes but isn’t surprising when you see who currently holds those positions and who their supporters are.
