The Council on American-Islamic Relations sent reporters an alert about a Florida Muslim leader named Joshua Evans who received a letter full of white powder. Evans was taken to the hospital and it turned out the powder wasn’t anything toxic. But this follows an incident where a mosque in which Evans worships was actually firebombed.
