HeadlineJul 05, 2016

Meanwhile, police are investigating at least two attacks against Muslims over the weekend. In Houston, Texas, a Muslim doctor was ambushed, stabbed and shot multiple times by three men as he was on his way to a mosque for morning prayer on Sunday. He has survived. This came one day after a man in Florida was beaten outside a mosque in Fort Pierce on his way to morning prayers. The Florida branch of CAIR says the attacker said, “You Muslims need to get back to your country.”
