The sharia solution to business disputes appears to be not so very different from the mob solution.

“The imam and president of the Lexington Islamic Center has been arrested, along with two other men, on federal charges related to an alleged murder-for-hire plot.

Authorities said 70-year-old Mahmoud Shalash was charged Thursday, along with 34-year-old Abdul Hadi and 31-year-old John Sadiqullah, on charges of conspiracy and using interstate facility in the commission of a murder-for-hire plot.

According to an affidavit by the investigator in the case, the three men wanted to have someone kill another man for $10,000 over a business dispute.

Apparently the murder plot had a fatwa seal of approval.

“The informant suggested during one meeting that Sadiqullah and others — who were mad at someone they believed had cheated them in a business deal — meet with Shalash at a mosque on Armstrong Mill Road “in order for Shalash to provide a ‘fatwa’ authorizing the killing.”

In a conversation on May 2, Sadiqullah told the confidential source that he and some Afghan associates were to meet “the Sheik” at the mosque that day to discuss the issue.

The source believed the sheik referred to Shalash, according to the affidavit.

Shalash had previously claimed to be the victim of Islamophobia.

“The Islamic Center of Lexington contacted Lexington police and federal Homeland Security Friday morning after receiving an email threat, its imam Mahmoud Shalash said.

The email threat, received shortly before noon Friday, said: “I’m going to kill everyone I there [sic] you Muslim f**ks. Salabis is coming for you, ” according to a news release from the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization.

“We are aware of the incident and are looking into it to determine the proper course of action,” said David Habich, chief counsel for the FBI in Louisville, in an e-mail to the Herald-Leader.

Looks like they managed to do that.
