A Muslim religious leader in Virginia said his mosque received a threatening phone call from someone claiming to be a member of a Jewish group.

Imam Abu Nahidian, the religious leader at Manassas Mosque in northern Virginia, received the call in the wake of the shooting Thursday in San Bernadino, California, the Washington Post reported. According to Nahidian, a voice mail from someone claiming to be part of a Jewish group threatened to kill mosque members if any victims of the shooting turned out to be Jewish.“We are checking if one Jew has been killed in California. You all will be sorry. You all will be killed,” Nahidian reported the voice mail as saying.
