Muslim advocates: Florida a 'hub' for anti-mosque activity
by Bethany Rodgers
Florida leads all but six states for reports of anti-mosque activity and is home to three groups focused on spreading fears about Muslims, according to an Islamic advocacy group.
A newly-released report by the Council on American-Islamic Relations documented six cases of vandalism, harassment, intimidation and government bias against Florida mosques from 2013 through 2015. Only five states had a higher tally, and New Jersey tied Florida.
"Florida is a hub for a lot of these hate crimes against the mosques and Muslims," Rasha Mubarak, Orlando regional coordinator for CAIR-Florida, said at a news conference today.
