CHICAGO (CBS) – Islamic rights advocates say there’s been a rise in the number of threats directed at local Muslims. And some of these threats are being delivered right to their doors. CBS 2’s Mike Puccinelli reports.
When Ahmed Rehab walks up to his suburban home these days it’s with a new sense of awareness. That’s because of what he found waiting for him in his mailbox just a few days ago, a postmarked typewritten hate-filled letter complete with a death threat.
“At the end of the letter it stated, ‘the only good Arab is a DEAD Arab,'” said Rehab.
Rehab is the Executive Director of the Chicago chapter of the Council on American Islamic Relations, or CAIR. (More)
