Ayatollah H. Rapp Brown?

Detroit imam Luqman Ameen Abdullah – who was fatally wounded last week in a shootout with law enforcement at his suburban warehouse/mosque – was a highly placed leader of the Ummah, “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 within the borders of the United States, governed by Shariah law,” according to court documents.

Agents assigned to the FBI's Counterterrorism Squad said the heavily armed group supported itself financially by engaging in insurance fraud and fencing stolen property.

Luqman – whom informants said often referred to police officers as “kafir (non-Muslim) dogs” – had been arming and training members of the Masjid Al-Haqq mosque to establish an Islamic state “to be ruled over by Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin, formerly known as H. Rapp Brown, who is currently serving a life sentence in the Florence, Colorado Supermax for shooting two [black] police officers in Georgia” when they tried to serve him a warrant for a speeding ticket.

The former justice minister of the Black Panther Party is apparently running the jihad from the same prison the Obama administration wants to send terrorists from Guantanamo Bay.
