A Texas man was indicted by a federal grand jury late last week on charges he violated the civil rights of Muslims when he threatened to blow up the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro in Tennessee, according to DNJ.com.

Javier Alan Correa, 24, is accused of leaving an expletive-laced voice mail at the mosque, threatening to blow up the building with a bomb.

Correa faces 10 years in prison on one count of intentionally obstructing by threat of force the free exercise of religious beliefs and one count of using an instrument of interstate commerce to communicate a threat to destroy a building by means of an explosive device.

According to authorities, Correa left the message, “On Sept. 11, 2011, there’s going to be a bomb in the building.”

We had nothing to connect Hinckley with stalking Mr. Carter.”

Until recently, these historic facts have never before been made public.
