Minister Larry 4X Prescott

Minister Larry 4X Prescott

Long time readers of this blog will remember that one of my earliest entries concerned the presence of Larry 4X Prescott (Akbar Muhammad) at MANA‘s first convention in November of 2007. He was included in the program to deliver a passionate speech defending convicted cop killer Jamil Alamin. At the time, my outrage was directed at according heretics respectability at ostensibly “Sunni” events. In later comments I called him an “aqeedah criminal”. Thanks to these decisions of allowing heretics to share the stage with Muslim Imams, the N.O.I has now achieved mainstream acceptance among younger Muslims who no longer see them as outside the fold of Islam. MANA’s choosing to allow Minister Larry 4X a spot at the MANA convention was almost exclusively Siraj Wahhaj’s, and it is with him that I lay the blame. Mainstreaming the N.O.I will undoubtedly be one of the sad chapters in his legacy.

However as it turns out, our friend Larry is not only an “aqeedah criminal”, but is also now a convicted felon who plead guilty last week to bank fraud to the tune of $323,000! The guy was using his “Muslim names” to get mortgages without disclosing he had others. What makes Larry’s crime all the more appalling is the fact that he held a number of “fund raisers” (are you all starting to get the picture) in different cities in support of his legal defense fund knowing full well that he was guilty!

UPDATE: Johari Abdul-Malik has also weighed in on this issue. I must give credit here as well for coming out strongly against these evil people

UPDATE II: Electronic Village has made this racist and murderous man the current “Village Villain”

I want to extend a heartfelt appreciation to brother Imam Talib Abdur-Rashid and all the principled Imams of the New York area, who stood up yesterday in a press conference to condemn the racist attack of al Qaida leader Ayman Zawahiri against President-Elect Barack Obama, General Colin Powell, and Secretary of State Condolizza Rice. Invoking Malcolm X, Zawahiri called all three respected Americans “House Negros”.

Imam Talib and the brothers are to be applauded for their strength and integrity, especially for highlighting the historical fact that Arabs, Zarwahiri’s people, never lifted a finger to advance the cause of Black civil rights in this country!

The imams called the recorded comments from al Qaeda second-in-command Ayman al-Zawahiri, “an insult” from people who have “historically been disconnected from the African-American community generally and Muslim African-Americans in particular.”

In their statement, released from what was once the Audubon Ballroom, the site of Malcolm’s assassination and is now the Malcolm X, Dr Betty Shabazz Memorial and Educational Center, they also rejected the presumed right of anyone to speak on the behalf of African American Muslims. Although a little belated, it is still greatly appreciated. Perhaps challenges in securing the center were responsible for that.

Good job brother!
