The kicker is, the man who did this is an Iraqi American Muslim. “He cannot be a Muslim,” said Imam Husham Al-Husainy, the spiritual leader of the Karbalaa Center. “No Muslim would ever do something like this.” (Hee Hee)
Arab American News(h/t Rob E)On Wednesday June 25, police arrested an Iraqi American who was trying to burn the Qur’an in front of the Karbalaa Islamic Educational Center on Warren Avenue. Ali Hassan Al-Assadi, 50, of Detroit, also admitted to burning three Qur’ans at the Karbalaa Center on June 10, according to Lt. Doug Topolski of the Dearborn Police Department. The first Qur’an burning incident coincided with the visit of an anti-Muslim pastor, Terry Jones, from Florida and made national headlines.
Imam Husham Al-Husainy, the spiritual leader of the Karbalaa Center, said he does not know Al-Assadi. Al-Husainy added that he does not think Al-Assadi is acting on his own. “Regardless of his identity, he has the same motives and goals as the anti-Islamic extremists,” explained Al-Husainy. “This could be a continuation of the crusade by Terry Jones.”
