"Inside Islam: Faith vs. Fanatics:" Michigan

Sheikh Kabbani, an imam of Flint, Michigan, tried to warn the U.S. government of an impending attack by Osama bin Laden - three years before 9/11.

Sheikh Kabbani is a Suffi Muslim - a sort of Islam on the Wahhabi 'not approved' list.

He was ignored by the American government, accused of being an alarmist by the State Department. Then he went to Wahhabi leaders in America. They considered him a threat, sent him death threats. Soon he was shunned by at least many Muslims in America.

It seems that the "no snitching" code isn't limited to inner cities - or that Muslims are inclined to accept the word of a large number of loud leaders, rather than do their own investigations. That really is a very human way to act.

Note! Although I believe that these websites and blogs are useful resources for understanding the War on Terror, I do not necessarily agree with their opinions. 1 1 Given a recent misunderstanding of the phrase "useful resources," a clarification: I do not limit my reading to resources which support my views, or even to those which appear to be accurate. Reading opinions contrary to what I believed has been very useful at times: sometimes verifying my previous assumptions, sometimes encouraging me to change them.

Even resources which, in my opinion, are simply inaccurate are sometimes useful: these can give valuable insights into why some people or groups believe what they do.

In short, It is my opinion that some of the resources in this blogroll are neither accurate, nor unbiased. I do, however, believe that they are useful in understanding the War on Terror, the many versions of Islam, terrorism, and related topics.
