ADL Condemns Hate Literature Distribution at Honolulu Mosque
October 22, 2002, San Francisco... ADL condemned the distribution of offensive hate materials, which occurred at the mosque of the Muslim Association in Honolulu, Hawaii, on Monday. According to media reports, hundreds of leaflets containing anti-Islamic vulgarities and threats were distributed at the mosque; the reports state that the FBI is investigating this as a possible hate crime.
ADL Regional Director, Jonathan Bernstein stated, "We are deeply concerned about the distribution of hate materials at a mosque. No religious community should be targeted for hate nor should a group of people be scapegoated for a few individuals' actions. We offer our support to the Muslim community."
