CAIR-FL: ANTI-MUSLIM FLIERS HANDED OUT IN PINELLAS COUNTY
PINELLAS, FL — A married couple in Pinellas County is raising concerns about an anti-Muslim flier that was left on their front door. And now the FBI is being asked to investigate.
The flier was left at Joel and Cheri Harper’s home on 76th Avenue North in unincorporated Pinellas County. The leaflet accuses Muslims of stockpiling anthrax in America for years and smuggling suitcase-sized nuclear bombs into the country.
The anonymous flier also encourages readers to find salvation by believing in Jesus.
“I don’t know what this person’s up to, but it sounds mostly like it’s hate, and hate against Muslims. And there’s already enough of that, because of the world situation and the way things are going. We don’t need any more.”
The Tampa chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations is asking religious leaders to repudiate the door-to-door distribution of anti-Muslim hate fliers.
CAIR is also commending the Harpers for raising concerns about the leaflet.
