On Wednesday night, a man stapled pro-Israel flyers along the trees just outside of the masjid fence. They were taken down on Thursday morning and a police report was filed. Alhamdulilah our security cameras had images of the suspect as well as the license plate of the vehicle he used. This information was handed over to local authorities for further investigation.
Later that day, the administration of both ICSD and BHA met with Officer Homayoun and the new police lieutenant of our district. We expressed our concerns and had a productive conversation on prioritizing our community’s safety, especially given the growing tension overseas. They were very helpful and offered to have a police car present at jummah, as well as routine checks.
The safety of our students will always be a top priority and we will continue to take all necessary measures to keep our children away from any potential harm. With the partnership of BHA, ICSD, and local authorities, we have the foundation necessary to keep our community safe alhamdulilah.
As always, please feel free to reach out with any questions and concerns. Enjoy your jummah, and remember to keep our brothers and sisters in Palestine in your du’a. May Allah ease their suffering and shower them with mercy, Ameen.
