Below is an excerpt from CAIR earlier this year


In light of recent events affecting American Muslims across the country, CAIR-NJ is advising the Muslim community to take all threats seriously and ensure that local law enforcement are contacted in a timely manner to investigate and address any threats. CAIR-NJ is here to assist you with vetting the credibility of the threat and the proper means of reporting. Here are some key terms to know and understand:


Islamophobia: a close-minded prejudice against or hatred of Islam and Muslims. Islamophobic acts are directed at Islam and Muslims in general. Anti-Muslim discrimination is directed at a specific individual, institution or group of individuals. 


Hate Incident: an act such as hate speech made against a person, property or society which is motivated in whole or in part by the offender's bias against a race, religion, disability, sexual orientation or ethnic origin.


Hate Crime: a criminal offense that is a physical assault against a person or property, which is motivated in whole or in part by the offender's bias against a race, religion, disability, sexual orientation or ethnic origin.




1) Report any suspicious activity or individuals to the local police (dial 911), and to the Masjid or organization that it involves. Report any threat of violence on social media, voicemails, text messages, website attacks/hacks, phone calls, verbal threats, or physical threats to the police.
