Prosecutors say Minnesota mosque bombers planned attack on Champaign abortion clinic

MINNEAPOLIS Imam Asad Zaman believes Michael Hari should be labeled a terrorist.

Hari, after all, masterminded the bombing of a place of worship. He appointed himself leader of an armed militant group that harbored anti-government sentiment. He rejected the ideology of American citizens and sought correction through violence.

"To me, it is not enough that Hari goes to prison," said Zaman. "I want to know where Hari got his money. And I want those people to also go to jail for 20 or 30 years."

Earlier this month, a jury found Hari guilty of orchestrating and helping carry out the 2017 bombing of Dar Al-Farooq Islamic Center, a mosque in Bloomington. Zaman and other Muslim faith leaders in the Twin Cities are now calling on lawmakers to create a new statute specifically designating the crime of "domestic terrorism." The law, they say, would allow prosecutors to push for harsher penalties for homegrown attackers such as Hari and to pursue cases against co-conspirators who give them money, weapons or other forms of aid.

1. Maybe we should wait until after 1/20/21...

Before pressing the terrorism charges. Trump hasn't seen a white, Christian terrorist that he doesn't want to hand a pardon to.
