Tweet of the Day: Ferguson, MO, Muslim activist leader shrugs off OK beheading

Tweet of the Day: Ferguson, MO, Muslim activist leader shrugs off OK beheading

By his own lights, Anthony Sahid is an “activist, agitator and servant of Allah.” That’s how he describes himself in his Twitter profile, which means that at least in two areas — and some might argue three — he shares credentials with Barack Obama

Suffice it to say that Sahid, who is founder of an organizatuon called Tauheed Youth Development Life is a community leader. Judging from the headlines he made after the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., he is someone who black residents look up to for guidance.

Which makes a message he posted on Twitter yesterday doubly distressing. The message was in a response to a tweet that in fairness was provocative. Someone who uses the Twitter handle J.C, tweeted at Sahid:

[S]peaking of killers, did you see what one of your black brothers did in the name of Islam? Beheaded a woman in OK.

The reference was to the horrendous act described here. Sahid could have chosen to ignore the comment. Instead, he tweeted back:

Ferguson is once again the scene of violence and mob rule. The latest unrest is over a curbside memorial to Brown that was destroyed by fire. The most likely explanation for the blaze is that the tribute, which consisted of stuffed animals and a lit candle, was an accident waiting to happen. But the black community in Ferguson has been persuaded that the fire was intentional, set by local police.

Now where would they get a crazy idea like that?
