NEW JERSEY - The Council on Islamic-American Relations is accusing the Republican National Convention of fear mongering.

The council says speakers at the RNC have been targeting all Muslims as a threat to America.

One of the convention's themes is "Make America Safe Again." The group's executive director says that wrongly implies that Americans aren't safe.

The council says Donald Trump's rhetoric about banning all Muslims from entering the country incited a spike in threats against Muslims.
