Welcome to the “extremism” that DHS and the White House won’t spell out by name (via the Detroit Free Press):
A federal indictment unsealed Wednesday in Detroit provides unprecedented detail into a world where, authorities say, a group of radical Sunni Muslims were urged to take over the U.S. government and establish Islamic law.
The complaint says that the imam or leader of the group, Luqman Ameen Abdullah, repeatedly used rhetoric that urged Muslims to seize power with violence and establish a society where Muslims would rule over non-Muslims.
“America must fall,” Abdullah said, according to the complaint. At another point, he “told followers that they need to be with the Taliban, Hizballah, and with Sheikh Bin Laden.”
“We should be figuring out how to fight the Kuffar,” Abdullah said at another point, the indictment states. Kuffar “is a highly derogatory term” used to describe non-Mulisms, the document states.
“You see, we need to figure out how to be a bullet,” Abdullah said, according to the government.
In chilling detail, the 43-page indictment portrays a mosque where hateful rhetoric was repeatedly used by Abdullah, including during Friday sermons, traditionally the most popular gathering time in mosques.
Abdullah also used violence to enforce control, the indictment said, often beating children.
“We got to take out the U.S. government,” Abdullah said at another point. “The U.S. government is nothing but Kuffars.”
