A leader of a major American Muslim organization, the Muslim American Society (MAS), is arguing that there “was nothing wrong with” Osama bin Laden’s dream of creating a renewed Caliphate.

Khalilah Sabra, the director of the North Carolina branch of MAS’ Freedom Foundation, made the statement in a sometimes disjointed article entitled “Agreeing to Disagree About the Death of Osama Bin Laden” that was released Wednesday under the MAS logo. The statement aligns more with a period of Sabra’s life in the late 1980s, when she traveled to Afghanistan with bin Laden’s predecessor, Abdullah Azzam, to provide aid to the mujahideen fighting the Soviet Union.
