Yet we are not even to question the loyalties of Muslims in America — to do so would be “Islamophobia.” This story shows why such pieties must be discarded. “Dearborn resident helped terror group,” from the Detroit News, :
DEARBORN — A Dearborn man pleaded guilty Tuesday to providing material support to Hezbollah, a foreign terrorist organization.
Mahmoud Youssef Kourani, 33, admitted to hosting meetings at his Dearborn home during Ramadan in 2002 and allowing a Lebanese man to solicit donations from people there for Hezbollah.
The U.S. government considers Hezbollah, a Lebanese group known as Party of God, to be a terrorist organization. The group’s goals, the government says, include the eradication of “Western imperialism” from the Middle East.
Hezbollah has conducted many high-profile terrorist attacks, including the killing of a Marine lieutenant in 1989.
