“Nothing to do with Islam”
Federal agents working on a counterterrorism task forceÂ in Detroit, MichiganÂ reported that during a gun battle theyÂ shotÂ and killedÂ theÂ ImamÂ of an IslamicÂ group. Agents say the gunfight began after Luqman Ameen AbdullahÂ refused to surrender and face various criminal charges.
FBI “expert on Islam” speaks:
Andrew Arena, the head of the FBI office in Detroit, says the men follow “a very hybrid radical ideology” that mainstream Muslims “would not recognize.” (if you only knew, Andrew, if you only knew…)

Feds: Islamic Radical Killed in Mich. Raid
Soup chef Abdullah
Abdullah received at least 20 percent of any profit and claimed the “Prophet Muhammad said that it is okay to participate in theft; as long as that person prays, they are in a good state”-
“And know that whatever ye take as spoils of war, lo! a fifth thereof is for Allah, and for the messenger and for the kinsman (who hath need) and orphans and the needy and the wayfarer…” — Koran 8:4
The FBI said Abdullah, also known as Christopher Thomas, was an imam, or prayer leader, of a radical group named Ummah whose primary mission is to establish an Islamic state within the U.S.
“Simply shoot a cop in the head…”
Abdullah told followers that it was their “duty to oppose the FBI and the government and it does not matter if they die” and to “simply shoot a cop in the head” if they wanted the officer’s bulletproof vest, Leon wrote.
Muslims are victims:
Imad Hamad, regional director of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee in Dearborn, said the FBI briefed him about the arrests. Â “We know that this is not something to be projected as something against Muslims,” Hamad said.
That’s what it’s always about, eh, Hamad? Not — “We’re going to teach against these ideas to try to make sure this doesn’t happen again.” Just more spurious claiming of victim status.
CAIR to the rescue:
But that description doesn’t match what Dawud Walid, executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations’ Michigan chapter, said he knew of Abdullah.
“He would open up the mosque to homeless people. He used to run a soup kitchen and feed indigent people,” Walid said. “I knew nothing of him that was related to any nefarious or criminal behavior.”
Al-Amin, a veteran of the black power movement, started the group after he converted to Islam in prison.
“They’re not taking their cues from overseas,” said Jimmy Jones, a professor of world religions at Manhattanville College and a longtime Muslim prison chaplain. “This group is very much American born and bred.” Yep. That’s what happens when you allow Islam to infiltrate your country. It spreads like a fever…. Here’s more>>
