I recommend fingerprinting the Imam and comparing it to those on the letter.

When I lived in Des Moines there was no “Islamic Center” to my knowledge. Just delicious pork tenderloin sandwiches.

Can the Imam elaborate on what Hitler did to Jews? There are those among the pro-Palestinian war movement who are Holocaust deniers AND take the position that Hitler didn’t do ENOUGH.

Word game: V-I-L-E rearranged several ways. A “religion” which demands that women L-I-V-E behind a V-E-I-L (among many much worse teachings) and murders members of their own and other religions in cold blood is E-V-I-L! I’m sure those from the tribe of L-E-V-I would agree!

"vile"???

IMHO that is more a of a positive/congratulatory designation...

There is no possible honest description that could be classified as "vile".

I find verses in the Koran vile and threatening. Like the ones that demand my head be removed, or I have to be a slave, or I can be held as a slave. Or kill the Jews. Too bad.

that President Donald Trump would “do to you Muslims what Hitler did to the Jews.”

That right there identifies whoever wrote it as one of the hard core leftists who hate President Trump, and conservatives in general.

A perfect example of a hoax.
