Abdul Alim Musa, the imam of Masjid Al-Islam in Washington, at UC Irvine, two days before the 9/11 attacks. The event was a benefit dinner for Jamil Al-Amin, formerly known as H. Rap Brown, who was accused of killing a Fulton County, Ga. sheriff's deputy serving a warrant in 2000. Al-Amin received a life sentence after being convicted of the deputy's murder in March 2000.
Musa: Imam Jamil coined a phrase, and that phrase meant this: "If you don't give us justice. If you don't give us equality. If you don't give us our share of America. If you don't stay out of our way and leave us alone, we're gonna burn America down."
