Criminal Complaint on Detroit Imam Luqman Ameen Abdullah

From the complaint:
The investigation has shown that Luqman Ameen Abdullah, Imam of the Masjid AI-Haqq, in Detroit, Michigan, is a highly placed leader of a nationwide radical fundamentalist Sunni group consisting primarily of African-Americans, some of whom converted to Islam while they were serving sentences in various prisons across the United States. Their primary mission is to establish a separate, sovereign Islamic state ("The Ummah") within the borders of the United States, governed by Shariah law. The Ummah is to be ruled over by Jamil Abdullah AI-Amin, formerly known as H. Rapp Brown, who is currently serving a life sentence in the Florence, Colorado Supermax for shooting two police officers in Georgia.

Luqman Adbullah was taped by an informant with a variety of interesting comments, including the following:
[U]ntil you act black and believe in that you are the leaders of mankind, you are going to be astray. If you can't please the Christians and the Jews. You cannot please them until you follow their religion. [...]

Obama is a Kafir [infidel]. McCain, all the rest of them Kufrars, are Kuffars. You can't make them a good Kafir, bad Kafir. [...]

The premise of Allah, and Islam said, "the worst of [unintelligible], the worst
Muslim is better than the best Kafir." [...]

It's impossible to for you to take and change this thing around, trying to go through it the same way. You know, like, "OK, let me become a part of it then. I'm going to change it." You cannot do that. It don't work like that. And you cannot have a non-violent revolution.

"...a timely warning..."

Jihad Joe: Americans Who Go to War in the Name of Islam:
"At a time when some politicians and pundits blur the line between Islam and terrorism, Berger, who knows this subject far better than the demagogues, sharply cautions against vilifying Muslim Americans. ... It is a timely warning from an expert who has not lost his perspective." -- New York Times
