City Paper: Texas Man Indicted for Threatening Murfreesboro Mosque

Posted By on Thu, Jun 21, 2012 at 6:15 PM

From the City Paper:

A federal grand jury in Nashville has indicted Javier Alan Correa, of Corpus Christi, Texas, on two felony counts for allegedly threatening to bomb the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro last fall in a profanity-laced cellphone call.

Correa is charged with interfering with the religious freedom of members of the mosque by threatening to use force against them as well as threatening to use an explosive device to interfere.

U.S. Attorney Jerry Martin announced the indictment at the mosque construction site Thursday.

According to the indictment, a portion of the Sept. 5, 2011, phone message Correa left at the mosque read, “go back to your [expletive] dirty [expletive] country, [expletive] Muslim fascists, get the [expletive] out of here … On September 11, 2011, there’s going to be a bomb in the building … .”
