MUKILTEO, Wash. (AP) — A group seeking to open a mosque in Mukilteo is calling for a boycott of a Boeing supplier, saying the company’s owner is promoting anti-Muslim bias. The group wants Boeing to end its relationship with Mukilteo-based aerospace supplier Electroimpact Inc.
The Daily Herald reports (http://is.gd/6M3Hpp ) Peter Zieve, president of Electroimpact, helped orchestrate an anonymous, citywide postcard mailing about the mosque project and established an email address, mukilteostay firstname.lastname@example.org.
His company is a major supplier of assembly tools to airplane-makers Boeing and Airbus and other major companies around the world.
A spokesman for Zieve said he could not be reached for comment.
An April 9 email from Zieve says mosque opponents are considering a lawsuit to stop the project. The email also suggests that opponents “understand the danger” associated with a mosque opening in Mukilteo.
