‘Bloodshed’ Predicted by Member of ‘Christian Civil Liberties Union’ Over New Mosque in Milwaukee
The religious facility—Masjid Al-Hudad—does not require prior approval from the city and has already acquired the property on which it will be built.
But that is not stopping the far-right, Christian fundamentalist group CCLU from mobilizing fierce opposition, including at a Common Council meeting last Tuesday.
At the public meeting, CCLU member Bob Braun issued an unclear—but highly alarming—warning. “There’s going to be, I predict, bloodshed one of these years coming up,” he said, according to local media.
Such intimidation and incitement is being met with some resistance from community members, including high school student Nathaniel Hecimovic, who spoke at Tuesday’s meeting to denounce the CCLU’s campaign as “unacceptable.”
