Feds: Dearborn Heights Muslim a terrorist danger to community

Khalil Abu-Rayyan Muslim terroristFederal prosecutors oppose bond for a Dearborn Heights man suspected of supporting the Islamic State extremists, saying there is “clear and convincing evidence” he is a danger to the community, according to their 36-page motion filed Tuesday.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Detroit said Khalil Abu-Rayyan should stay in federal detention based on “his expressed support of a designated foreign terrorist organization, his continually voiced desire to engage in a martyrdom operation, his fascination with death and killing, particularly beheadings, his on-going mental health issues, his possession and attempted possession of firearms, his drug use, and his prior assaultive conduct.”
