Local Muslims say hostilities against them and their religion have flared up in recent weeks in the wake of the heated controversies about a proposed mosque near Ground Zero, the threatened burning of the Quran and the 9/11 anniversary.


Hostilities include graffiti on signs, a nasty telephone message and apples thrown at midnight at the home of the imam of the mosque on Amostown Road, according to Muslim leaders.
