Religion Of Murder Update: Moderate Muslim Americans urge Kerry for protection from other Moderate Muslims during Hajj

A coalition of more than two dozen American Muslim groups sent a letter Tuesday to Secretary of State John Kerry, asking for the protection of religious freedoms for Muslims that travel to Saudi Arabia to perform the Islamic pilgrimage called “Hajj.” The letter comes almost a year after American Muslims were singled out and attacked with knives and blades after being insulted with slurs during the 2013 Hajj. Victims of the assault claim that not only did Saudi police refuse to assist; the U.S. Embassy ignored them as well. The letter comes at a critical time, as American Muslims will leave for this year’s Hajj in late September.
