From our “Go Back Where You Came From” file: another day, another (attempted) honor killing in America.
PLUS: Christie Blatchford asks — hey, how come we never see those
leprechauns unicorns moderate Muslims we’re always hearing about:
Imam my arse: The late Luqman Ameen Abdullah was a convicted criminal (felonious assault and carrying a concealed weapon), born and raised in Detroit, who is better known as Christopher Thomas.
Mosque my arse: The Masjid Al-Haqq belonged to a group that called itself “Ummah” which was founded and headed by Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin, also known as H. Rapp Brown, the former Black Panther who is currently serving a life sentence for shooting two police officers.
And no one on the poor, black, west side of Detroit, where the Al-Haqq was based, or anyone at the Muslim Alliance in North America (MANA), a newish national network of masjids, where Imam Luqman sat on the organization’s governing shura, had the faintest idea what was going on. Of course. No one ever does.
