"It came as no surprise to learn that the lead suspect as the Washington, D.C.,--area sniper is John Allen Muhammad, an African-American who converted to Islam about 17 years ago. Nor that seven years ago he provided security for Louis Farrakhan's "Million Man March." Even less does it amaze that he reportedly sympathized with the 9/11 attacks carried out by militant Islamic elements. All this was near-predictable because it fits into a well-established tradition of American blacks who convert to Islam turning against their country." **************** And this guy is defending himself in court on the murder charges. You know what they say about having a fool for a client!
