Seven terror suspects were arrested last week in Miami, allegedly planning to attack the Sears Tower in Chicago. Their belief? A blend of Islamic, Christian and Jewish tradition.
When asked by CNN why group members refer to themselves as “soldiers,” a “Brother Corey” said: “Because we study and we train through the Bible — not only physical, but mentally.”
Group members also worship in a “temple,” not in an Islamic mosque, according to media reports.
All religions have fringe elements. However, these elements do not represent the beliefs or practices of the vast majority of that faith’s followers — whether they are Jewish, Christian or Muslim.
