FBI top official reassures local Muslim community
by Peggy Fox
A week before Donald Trump's inauguration, a top FBI official paid a visit to Falls Church mosque Dar al Hijra to reassure the Muslim community that stopping hate crimes is one of the agency's biggest concerns.
Over the past year, this country has seen a 6% increase in hate crimes, including a 67% increase in hate crimes against Muslims, according to the Virginia Attorney General's office.
Longtime Dar al Hijra Imam Johari Abdul-Malik embraced Paul Abbate, head of the FBI's Washington field office, who, this week, was appointed executive FBI Assistant Director for Criminal Investigations Worldwide.
