Detroit Imam Killed in FBI Shootout Urged Followers to Kill Cops

October 29, 2009  | 

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-Muslims, the document states.

According to a federal indictment, Abdullah of Masjid Al-Haqq mosque in Detroit made numerous references to violence. Some of these statements were made in the mosque; others were captured by undercover agents elsewhere, including in Abdullah's car.

  • "We got to take out the U.S. government. The U.S. government is nothing but Kuffars."
  • At one point, "Abdullah started to jump around the room making motions with his hands as if he were shooting people saying, 'shoot cops in the head' and 'pop, pop.' Abdullah said he has a lot of experience shooting cops."
  • Abullah "said it is fine to bomb police stations."
