Mosques in California are on high alert after they received threatening letters that praised Donald Trump and warned them to get out.
Immediately the president-elect was blamed.
“There’s a new sheriff in town — President Donald Trump. He’s going to cleanse America and make it shine again. And, he’s going to start with you Muslims,”the letter said, according to the Council on American-Islamic Relations. “And, he’s going to do to you Muslims what Hitler did to the jews (sic).”

Hussam Ayloush, the director of CAIR LA, blamed the “irresponsible, hateful rhetoric” of the president-elect’s campaign that he said created “a level of vulgarity, vile hatred and anger among many self-proclaimed Trump supporters,” Fox News reported.
“I’m not saying (Trump) created racist people,” he said. “He normalized it. While he might say he’s not responsible, and I respect that, I remind President-elect Trump that he has a responsibility to act as a president for all Americans.”
And while he might not openly blame Trump, a cursory look at how the left is responding to it shows that many do.
Making America ungreat.

But is there any evidence of hoaxes like this being committed?
Actually, yes. Several examples.
In August an Oklahoma man was charged with a fake terrorist attack on a mosque he attended when he sent a harmless white powder to it in an envelope. He also admitted to spraying anti-Muslim graffiti on a nearby, Muslim-owned, shop but told investigators that the owner asked him to do it.
In 2014 a California Muslim man was found guilty of murdering his wife two years earlier. The woman was found in a pool of her own blood on the couples’ kitchen floor with a note next to her that read “This is my country, go back to yours, you terrorist” in an elaborate ruse.
A similar case occurred in 2001 when a Muslim man conspired with his mistress to kill his wife and blame black men for committing an Islamophobic hate crime .
And in April, a New York woman claimed a man attacked her at random and shouted “terrorist” at her before he slashed her face. But she later admitted to police she cut her own face and faked the attack.
There is no evidence to suggest these letters to mosques are a hoax but it is a possibility worth exploring.
Any Trump supporter should know that sending a letter like that would only harm the president-elect.
