The Muslim organizer of a rally last week in Detroit against terrorism said he received a death threat over the phone from a man with an Arabic accent upset that he spoke out against other Muslims.Apparently, it sucks to be a "moderate Islamist".
Majed Moughni, a Dearborn attorney who led the rally, told the Free Press he received the violent threat at about 6 a.m. Saturday from a man who said he was from France.
Dearborn Police Det. James Isaacs confirmed Monday that Moughni filed a police report and said the department is investigating the incident.
Moughni said he was able to record part of the call, which he played for the Free Press.
"I want to congratulate you for your place in hellfire, Inshallah," the caller said, using an Arabic phrase that means, God willing. "If you're in front of me, I will shoot you. I will put a bullet in your head. This is the consequence of a hypocrite."
Moughni said he replied:
"Well, this would be a good reason to die."...
At another point in the conversation, the caller told Moughni:
"You're a hypocrite and don't know what Islam is."
"We're defending Islam. That's why we were out there."
Not funny, but, when in the hell do I get my fatwa!!!!!
