Southfield — Area Muslims, representing the local Nigerian and Yemeni communities, gathered to condemn the failed terrorist attack aboard a flight headed to Detroit on Christmas Day and send a message to al-Qaida supporters that their actions are not condoned by Islam.

“Killing and targeting civilians is unacceptable in Islam,” said Dawud Walid, executive director of Michigan’s Council on American-Islamic Relations, at a press conference convened this morning in the local chapter’s office in Southfield.
He was flanked by three area Muslim leaders: Imam Kazeem Agboola, head of the Muslim Community Center in Detroit; Noa Fasina, secretary of the center; and Ibrahim Aljahim, president and CEO of Arab American Outreach. (More)
