October 25-Militant Islam Monitor-Adam Gadahn, who is now Al Qaeda's American spokesman called upon Muslims in Detroit to attack the United States. In a 48 minute video posted on the internet Gadahn called upon Muslims "living in the miserable suburbs of Paris, London, Detroit"to carry out attacks upon Americans.Detroit has a large Muslim population. In a 2004 survey 81% of Detroit Muslims said that shari'a should be the law of the land in Muslim countries. http://www.jihadwatch.org/2004/04/survey-81-of-detroit-muslims-want-sharia-in-muslim-countries.html

In 2010 thousands of Detroit Muslims came out to mourn radical Shi'ite cleric Ayatollah Sayyed Mohammed Hussein Fadlallah who "approved of the 1983 Hezbollah attacks on a U.S. Marine barracks and the American Embassy in Beirut that killed over 300." http://www.humanevents.com/article.php?id=38015

According to the Detroit Free Press:

"Speaking into a camera, Gadahn also addressed Muslims "arriving in America or Europe to study in its universities or seek their daily bread in the streets of its cities."
He tells Muslims living in the region and across the West: "Know that jihad is your duty as well, and you have an opportunity to strike the leaders of unbelief and retaliate against them on their own soil."http://www.freep.com/article/20101024/NEWS01/10240544/1322/Al-Qaida-message-aimed-at-region#ixzz13N6al12Q

Gadahn converted to Islam at age 17 at The Islamic Society of Orange County lead by radical Imam Muzammil Siddiqi in California. He is on the FBI's Most Wanted list and is the first American charged with treason since 1952.
