Uh oh. It looks as if Derrick Shareef is another misunderstander of Islam. Ibrahim Hooper, get on the phone to this lad, and explain to him how Islam is peace.
“Man charged in Illinois mall plot,” from AP, with thanks to Jeff:
…Derrick Shareef, 22, of Rockford, was arrested when he met with an undercover agent in a parking lot to trade a set of stereo speakers for four hand grenades and a handgun.
Federal officials said he planned to set off four hand grenades in garbage cans at the CherryVale shopping mall in Rockford, about 90 miles northwest of Chicago.
He was charged with one count of attempting to damage or destroy a building by fire or explosion and one count of attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction.
Federal officials said that in September Shareef became acquainted with an FBI cooperating witness and confided to him that he wanted to commit acts of “violent jihad” as well as other crimes.
