FBI: Start taking white nationalist violence on houses of worship seriously.
For generations, white nationalist violence has targeted houses of worship.
Churches, synagogues, mosques and gurdwaras have all been attacked in recent years with deadly consequences, yet the FBI refuses to devote sufficient attention and resources to understanding, preventing and investigating the white nationalist threat.
Tell the FBI to start focusing on this real threat, so we can prevent more blood from being shed.
Why is this important?
Because something must be done in the aftermath of the massacres in New Zealand, at the Tree of Life Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, at the Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, at the Sikh Temple of Oak Creek, Wisconsin and the firebombing of the Dar Al-Farooq Islamic Center in Bloomington, Minnesota. These headline-making attacks are just a few of the many on houses of worship in recent years.
Muslim Advocates and our partners need the FBI to take this threat seriously and devote sufficient attention and resources to understanding, preventing and investigating the white nationalist threat.
