Speakers such as Rev. Jackson, Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) and myself all talked about coalition building and mentioned cases of discrimination against Muslims at CAIR-MI’s banquet yesterday in Dearborn.
One media account quoting Rev. Jackson as saying that he didn’t come to speak about Imam Luqman Abdullah’s killing was taken out of context. None of the speakers including myself, nor the program was centered around this incident.
Rev. Jackson, however, did comment on the event in an interview with a community member prior to the program starting. Jackson discussed “trigger happy” law enforcement agents and used the terms “illegal” and “immoral” in the context of Imam Luqman Abdullah’s shooting.
