Detroit: Center of Recession and Revolution
Mosques & Islamic Centers serve as Jihad training centers
By Douglas J. Hagmann,
Director of Northeast Intelligence Network
29 October 2009: A 45 page federal complaint unsealed Wednesday (PDF), the raid on a Detroit warehouse and Detroit area residences, the shootout between mosque leader Luqman Ameen ABDULLAH, a/k/a Christopher THOMAS and law enforcement officials should be sufficient verification of the validity of our previously published investigative and surveillance findings that Islamic terror training is taking place on America soil.
On Wednesday, federal, state and local law enforcement officials raided a suburban Detroit warehouse and at least three Detroit area residences after a federal complaint was unsealed charging eleven-(11) individuals with a variety of crimes relating to Islamic terrorism. During the raid at the warehouse, ABDULLAH, 53, a “homegrown” Black Muslim terrorist and mosque leader fired on authorities as they executed the arrest warrant at that location. Before being killed by authorities, ABDULLAH shot and killed a K-9 dog.
Authorities state that six men are in custody while others remain at large. ABDULLAH, who converted to Islam while in prison, was the Imam of the Masjid Al-Haqq (mosque) in Detroit. The spiritual leader of the group is Jamil Abdullah Al-AMIN, formerly known as H. Rap BROWN, a prominent Black Panther in the late 1960s and early 1970s. BROWN is currently incarcerated for the murder of two police officers in Georgia.
American streets will become the new Islamic Jihad battleground
The information contained within the federal complaint against the Detroit suspects is clear: Islamists in the US are advocating the spread of Islam through the use of violent jihad, and they are utilizing mosques and Islamic centers as their training grounds. The Northeast Intelligence Network has warned about this very issue, and even provided evidence of such activities.
On May 27, 2005, investigators from the Northeast Intelligence Network issued a fifteen-(15) page report titled Islamic Jihad Training in America. That report (PDF) specifically details paramilitary style training taking place at urban locations, including mosques and Islamic centers, in preparation for waging “jihad” or holy war by Islamists on the streets of America. The findings in this report are not merely speculation or commentary, but evidence based on extensive field investigation and surveillance performed by professional investigators.
On February 12, 2006 and updated later that summer, the Northeast Intelligence Network published a thirty-eight-(38) page report titled Exposing Terrorists in our Midst (PDF) detailing the paramilitary training at Muslim encampments as identified through on-site investigation and surveillance conducted by investigators of this agency. Again, the findings in this report are based on field investigation performed by professional investigators. So effective was this report that this investigator earned the wrath of a top Pakistani terrorist whose followers occupy several Islamic enclaves in North America. Following the publication of this report, Pakistani terror kingpin Shiek Mubarek Ali Gilani issued a religious statement and threatened this investigator/author in a rambling diatribe on a website maintained by his followers.
The Detroit raid serves to verify that there is a growing army of Islamic jihad “warriors” in our midst, operating behind the walls of an untold number of mosques and Islamic centers. Their seditious activity is protected by the careful exploitation of our democratic laws and the religious freedom that we offer. Their activities are permitted to continue for numerous reasons, including but not limited to the blackmail of predatory litigation against those who dare to expose the threat, the insidious imposition of political correctness and multiculturalism, and the failure to understand that the “religion” of Islam is inextricably linked to an archaic and oppressive political ideology that is completely incompatible with a democratic nation and a free society.
The upcoming offensive
While scanning the various comments about the Detroit raid, I found a comment made on a conservative forum by someone who described the groups of individuals arrested as “basically nothing more than a gang of criminals wearing Halloween costume African outfits.” Unfortunately, that statement reflects the perilous lack of understanding that will result in blood being shed on the streets of America.
The individuals who are preparing for jihad love death more than we, as Americans love life. As illustrated on various Islamic terrorist message sites, the Islamists living in America keenly sense our current malaise about the threat posed by Islam, our political ambiguity regarding the war in Afghanistan and Iraq, our self-flagellation over the treatment and ultimate adjudication of enemy combatants, and the current political agenda coming directly from the White House. They are more empowered today than ever before, and feel insulated from any meaningful intervention as they continue to use US real estate as forward bases for their political and religious takeover of the United States.
Our articles published on May 3, 2007, titled Jihad coming to the streets of America and its follow-up dated May 17, 2007 are more relevant today than ever before. On Wednesday in Detroit, we saw the manifestation of events we warned about over two years ago:
“We’re talking about professional Muslim men, mosque leaders, leaders within our communities who are actually helping young men train for the eventuality of urban combat. They know what they are doing, yet they lie right to our faces about these activities- and we’re told by our supervisors that we have to accept what they tell us at face value when they know damn well they are lying.”

Two suspects are still missing in connection with the FBI raids that were conducted in metro Detroit Wednesday.
Meanwhile, police have captured another suspect in the wake of the raids.
The FBI announced that Mujahid Carswell, also known as Mujahid Abdullah, was taken into custody by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police at around 1:00 p.m. Thursday. He was captured in Windsor and taken into custody without incident. He is being detained by the Canadian Border Patrol on immigration violations.
The two missing suspects are identified as Yassir Ali Khan and Muahammad Alsahli (Philestine). The men are believed to be armed and dangerous.
The men are believed to be part of a group known as "Ummah," or brotherhood. They are a group of mostly African-American men who converted to Islam. Officials say many of them converted while in prison.
The Ummah was originally headed by Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin, formerly known as H. Rapp Brown. He is serving life in prison at Colorado's supermax facility for the murder of two police officers in Georgia. He was also reportedly part of the "Black Panther" group back in the 1960s and '70s.
Most of the suspects surrendered peacefully during yesterday's raid at a warehouse at Michigan Avenue and Miller. The alleged ringleader, Luqman Ameen Abdullah, pulled a gun and shot at police. He was shot and killed by FBI agents. An FBI dog was also killed in the exchange of gunfire.
In all, nine suspects are in custody and another two are on the loose. The suspects are facing federal charges for conspiracy to commit a number of federal crimes including theft from interstate shipments, mail fraud, tampering with a motor vehicle and illegal possession and sale of firearms.
The suspects who were arrested yesterday are identified as Muhammad Salaam, Adam Ibraheem, Ali Raqib, Acie Pusha, Abdul Saboor, Abdullah Beard and Abdul Saboor. An eigth suspect, Franklin Williams, was already in custody at the time of the raid.
