Imam of a radical Sunni group allegedly seeking to establish a sovereign Islamic state inside the US killed in F.B.I. Raid

October 29, 2009

(ChattahBox) — Federal authorities in Dearborn a heavily Arabic populated suburb of Detroit serving an arrest warrant, say they fatally shot the leader of a radical fundamentalist Sunni Islam group after resisting arrest.  Agents were trying to arrest Luqman Ameen Abdullah,  a.k.a. Christopher Thomas, 53, at a Dearborn warehouse on charges that included conspiracy to sell stolen goods and illegal possession and sale of firearms.

“You cannot have a nonviolent revolution,” Luqman Ameen Abdullah said, according to a 2008 conversation secretly recorded by a confidential FBI source.

Luqman Ameen Abdullah, allegedly was the imam of a radical fundamentalist Sunni group called Masjid Al-Haqq that seeks to establish a sovereign Islamic state inside the United States.  Authorities also conducted raids elsewhere and rounded up 10 followers named in a federal complaint.  The case was being investigated by the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) in Detroit, though the men charged today were not charged with terrorism offenses.  But Abdullah was “advocating and encouraging his followers to commit violent acts against the United States,” FBI agent Gary Leone said in an affidavit filed with the 43-page criminal complaint unsealed Wednesday.

    Did he seriously think he could establish a sovereign Islamic state inside the United States?

    Just another case where religion has been perverted into something dangerous.
