Islamic center in Iowa receives handwritten hate letter

DES MOINES, Iowa (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A Muslim community in Iowa is on edge after an Islamic center received a handwritten "hate" letter.

A letter was found in a pile of mail Sunday at the Islamic Center of Des Moines.

A letter, calling Muslims vile and filthy, claimed there is a new sheriff in town, in President Donald Trump.

The center says this is one of the most terrifying threats they've received, but it's not the first.

They say love and support from the community is always louder.

But they hope police find the person who sent the hate mail.
