A greater Nashville resident and outspoken opponent of the construction of a Murfreesboro mega-mosque in Tennessee has received two death threats after an appearance on the comedy program The Daily Show.

Laurie Cardoza-Moore, founder and president of Proclaiming Justice to the Nations, is a staunch pro-Israel supporter. She says she received two threatening phone calls after appearing on the popular comedy cable program and expressing opposition to the mosque’s proposed expansion.
 
“[The caller said] ‘Allahu akbar’ [Arabic for ‘god is great’] — and he said, ‘We are coming after you. You cannot stop us,” she explains. 
 
Laurie Cardoza-Moore (PJTN)Cardoza-Moore is outraged and believes past Islamic extremist activity — like the two teenage girls in Dallas who were allegedly murdered by their father in what family members described as “honor killings” — should cause concern for all Americans and the nation’s future.
 
“Is that what we want for the United States of America?” she asks. “Because look at what’s happened to Europe, look at what’s happened in other countries where this has taken root. They are not here because they want to enjoy our freedoms — they’re coming to get us to submit to sharia law.”
 
And according to Cardoza-Moore, some of those advocating for the Murfreesboro mosque have ties to terrorist groups. “One of the board members of the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro is tied to Hamas,” she states. “He had a MySpace page where he was recruiting Muslims to spot and to kill Jews to ‘free Palestine.'”
 
As far as Cardoza-Moore is concerned, that is “unacceptable” in the Nashville area and in the United States. “And not only should they not be allowed to build a 53,000-square-foot mega-mosque, they shouldn’t be allowed to operate in the mosque that they have currently,” she adds.
 
The Rutherford County sheriff’s department is investigating the case, as are two federal agencies, one of them the FBI.
