Clarification

Reader comment on item: The Snipers: Crazy or Jihadis?

Submitted by Truth (United States), May 21, 2003 at 10:47

A writer made the comment that the sniper Muhammed could possibly be connected to the Nation of Gods and Earths. He got this information from a USA Today article written by Mark Goldblatt. This is completely false. There is absolutely no connection between Muhammed and the Nation of Gods and Earths. If the author did any research into the Nation he would realize Muhammed is not a name that anyone in the Nation would choose. The reason being that if you are part of the Gods and Earths you are not a Muslim. They also do not use Muslim names. I know that this an old post and by now it's clear there is no connection.
