Manassas Mosque receives threat


MANASSAS, Va. (WUSA9) -- Prince William County Police are investigating a threat to the Manassas Mosque that occurred overnight on Wednesday.

A man claiming to be from the Jewish Defense League left a voice message on the Mosque's phone that said if one Jew was killed in the California shooting, he would retaliate against the Mosque. 

The caller said, "We'll do to your people what you did to them. We are checking now to see if one Jew has been killed or shot in California.  If that has been that case, we say, never again....The Holocaust."

Imam Abu Nahidian of the Manassas Mosque reported the threat to police.

"What do you say for people who don't have much knowledge. We already protested against ISIS and all of these things before, many times," said Nahidian.
