| The Islamophobia Victim’s Murder Plot
| Monday, June 17, 2019
Jihad Watch : “Observe how peaceful we are,” Imam Mahmoud Shalash urged. “We do not cause any harm to anybody.”
Shalash’s mosque, the Islamic Center of Lexington, had contacted
Lexington cops and Homeland Security, while claiming to be suffering
from Islamophobic threats.
Before long, two cop cars in the Kentucky city known as the Horse
Capital of the World were parked outside the mosque to protect the imam
and his congregation. The FBI also got on board.
CAIR widely circulated reports of the threat to what it called, a “house of worship”.
“Our nation’s leaders must send a clear message challenging the
rising Islamophobia that leads to such threats,” CAIR’s Ibrahim Hooper
declared. With the 2016 election still imminent, his news release blamed
the “extreme anti-Muslim rhetoric” of Donald Trump and Ben Carson. Four years later, Imam Mahmoud Shalash is in jail. The imam of the
Islamic Center, along with John Sadiqullah, and Abdul Hadi, were charged
in a harmful and not especially peaceful murder plot.
What makes this particular murder plot interesting is that it would have been authorized with a fatwa. Imam Shalash has worn many hats. According to a LinkedIn profile,
In addition to running the Islamic Center of Lexington, a man of that
name owned a mobile home park and the Bluegrass Extended Stay motel
(guest reviews have complained about roaches, stained beds and
unfriendliness to service dogs), was a member of the Muslim Students
Association (a terror linked Muslim Brotherhood hate group) while
working on a degree in electrical engineering at the University of
Chicago, and, ironically, considering his current predicament, had
worked as a chaplain at “fedral and state prisons”.
