Kansas City: Muslim Teenager Murdered By Man Who Hated Islam, Compared Quran to Ebola


“Quran is a virus disease worestr than Ebola”

A young man of 15, Abdisamad Sheikh Hussein had his life stolen away from him, reportedly for no other reason than he was a Muslim. The perpetrator is an unidentified individual of 30, also a Somali who had a deep seated hatred of Islam and Muslims, even comparing the Quran to Ebola. The perpetrator sounds like Ayaan Hirsi Ali, except he was actually willing to carry out his hatred of Islam and Muslims in a personal bloody attack.

The vile and hostile rhetoric from those who are a part of the industry of Islamophobia is creating monsters, monsters who dehumanize and kill. (h/t: Hadi)

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A 15-year-old boy died after losing too much blood when his legs were severed in what police believe was an intentional attack outside the Somali Center of Kansas City Thursday evening.

Abdisamad Sheikh Hussein, who goes by the name “Adam” was getting into a car outside the Somali Center, 1340 Admiral Blvd., when he was hit by a man driving an SUV at about 5:30 p.m. Thursday.

Adam is a student at  Staley High School, 2800 NE Shoal Creek Pkwy, in the Northland. He was rushed into surgery at Children’s Mercy Hospital, but did not survive.  His family says he was brain-dead and they decided to take him off life support.

North Kansas City School District spokesperson Michelle Cronk says extra counselors are available to help Adam’s classmates as they learned the news on Friday.

“It became pretty clear that this was not an accidental crash, there is a considerable amount of evidence that leads us to believe it was intentional,” Sergeant Bill Mahoney with KCPD said.

According to some witnesses, the suspect, who is now in jail awaiting charges is a man known to them. They say he is also from Somalia, and that he has a history of hating Muslims.

FOX 4 had not named the suspect, pending charges.

Family and people heavily involved with the Somali Center near Admiral Boulevard and The Paseo say a man had been threatening people in the Muslim community for months now on Facebook. Several others say that same man pointed a gun at them, threatening to kill them because of their Muslim religion.

One friend of Adam’s recalled the man telling them that “Quran is worse than Ebola.”

Friday morning, Bridget Patton, FBI Public Affairs Specialist, said the FBI has opened the case as a Federal Civil Rights investigation and potential Hate Crime violation.

“A month or two ago he came to the Somali mall, two blocks from here. Things got bad, they started arguing and he pulled a gun,” Abdul Mohamed, a man who knows the victim, said.

Family told FOX 4’s Megan Brilley at the crime scene that Adam Hussein is the son of the Somali Center’s leader, and they were devastated by the events that happened Thursday night.

“Our family is very destroyed at what happened. He’s a sweet, loving kid. He doesn’t deserve this,” Khadra Dirir, the victim’s aunt, said. “I’m pretty sure it’s a hate crime from things I’ve been hearing. I hope that someone brings him to justice.”

Police quickly arrested the suspect.

“He tried to leave the scene but couldn’t get anywhere in the vehicle.  He bailed out of it, started running eastbound and was apprehended by officers,” Sgt. Mahoney said.

“He can exercise his First Amendment, but him actually come and try to run over kids, that’s just ridiculous. Like who does that?” said Khadra Dirir.

A second person hurt reportedly didn’t suffer life-threatening injuries.

Friday is a worldwide day of congregational prayer for Muslims and some were out early Friday morning at Admiral Blvd and the Paseo, where the prayer center is located.

The Heartland Muslim Council released a statement overnight which read, in part:

Kansas City Muslim community is deeply shocked at the hit and run, apparently intentional assault last evening outside a mosque on Admiral Boulevard in Midtown Kansas City. The attack resulted in the death of a teenager and serious injuries to another teenager. Our thoughts and prayers for the victims and their families and friends.

We ask the federal law enforcement authorities to investigate this attack as a possible hate crime.
We commend the Kansas City Police Department for apprehending the suspected killer immediately after the crime. We hope the suspect will be charged and brought to full justice.

In light of the increased attacks on the mosques across the nation, we appeal to the law enforcement departments to provide extra safety and security to the mosques, Islamic schools and Muslim businesses.”

    I’m afraid I don’t understand…

  • Guess – BDS

    Zing! It makes me giggle every time I see that huge lighting spelling FEMINIST behind monotonous ‘Sasha Fierce’. By the way, any idea how to delete a post? does words needs to deleted or the deleted on their own after clicking’delete’. I never deleted one, but since Jekyll honor my request, I have no need for those posts as there out context to my other ones.

  • Ilisha


    Stop reflexively blaming me for everything. I’m haven’t even been moderating lately.

  • Tanveer ¯_(ツ)_/¯ Khan

    That will annoy feminists even further probably.

  • Jekyll

    Dude she probably got married or something.

  • Guess – BDS

    So I won’t address you in any manner any longer.


  • Tanveer ¯_(ツ)_/¯ Khan

    Stahp sowing the seeds of doubt in my mind, devilish being. Ilisha can’t quit.

  • Guess – BDS

    Relax? This an example of an attack dog post that I’ve addressed you in my recent comment. I no longer wish you address me those. Please, respect my wish.

  • Guess – BDS

    Hold your horses lady. And don’t throw a politically correct tantrum on me

    Really Jekyll? and this tantrum of your ? :). When you recently replied to a comment, you replied with a “What ?! Jeez”, not with a condescending “Hold your horses lady. And don’t throw a tantrum on me”. And I doubt you would have address Micheal that comment in the crude fashion you did that got me so upset. I also don’t appreciate what I perceive as attack-dog (read aggressive) posts, exclusively directed at me (and this is not the first time you did this!) when I’m engaged with someone about a subject that you happen to hold a different position than mine. Brief, I no longer wish you address me in this fashion or better yet, no longer address me at all. I will greatly appreciate if you respect those requests. Beside, to be quite honest, I’ve always disliked those tags of “lady”, “woman”.

    Could be.

    No need to call Emergency Services.

  • Aayjay

    Glad to hear that!

  • HSkol

    I think she is just taking a break, but she did post just yesterday – and MOD was displayed as prominently as it should be. :)

  • Aayjay

    Just a flyby thought – could be wrong – I hope I am.

  • Tanveer ¯_(ツ)_/¯ Khan

    Didn’t she say she was taking a break? She can’t have lost her job as mod, no way. Even if she had, I don’t think that would have prevented her from posting.

  • Aayjay

    I just realized she lost her job as a moderator because of that anti-feminism tirade. Too un-PC. Oops! Dont like that. Maybe I am wrong but I have this hunch!

  • Aayjay

    Ask El Cid.

    Meh, things weren’t working out, so he went to go hang out with chloride.

    4.5 minutes shouldn’t kill anyone but then again if that is the speech time and by the time everyone gets assembled and dispersed takes much longer – that would definitely annoy people. We have something similar going on in Pakistan where Imran Khan is blocking roads, closing shops, etc. I see similarity in both stories but with the only difference, in Pakistan, Imran’s followers are considered thugs. So it’s kind of interesting where civil disobedience of one country would be the thuggery of the other. Who decides what is right? What should be considered right?

  • HSkol

    I think the standard has been to block intersections for four and a half minutes. Even an interstate in Minneapolis has been blocked – thankfully the police showed up to be certain that no one was injured.

  • Aayjay

    Are these protests where intersections get blocked?

  • HSkol

    I think that with the large protests, which seem to be getting larger and larger with time, some people are hearing the protesters (their growth would be a sign of that to me), some are getting irritated with longer commutes (of course), and others yet don’t care at all. My personal take is that more and more people are looking at this issue than previously; and, it seems that more and more people want a change. It’s likely different area by area. I would certainly not want to find myself near a protest in which violence erupts (NY seems to have had some pretty bad problems).

  • Aayjay

    Are they hearing them now when stopped for a couple of hours on the street? More importantly, are they reacting favorably to what they hear?
