Head of armed group that bombed Minnesota mosque in act of ‘domestic terrorism’ gets 53 years in prison

No one was injured in the Dar al-Farooq Islamic Center when a pipe bomb sailed through a broken window and exploded outside the imam’s office. But the attack in the Minneapolis suburbs in August 2017 left emotional scars on worshipers that linger to this day.

In court proceedings years after the early morning bombing, members recalled how they feared someone might target their homes. The mosque’s director spoke of a “dark cloud” that hung over him when he prayed.

On Monday, they got a measure of closure when the leader of an armed hate group who authorities say orchestrated the attack was sentenced to 53 years in federal prison.

Emily Claire Hari, 50, was convicted in December of damaging property because of its religious character, intentionally obstructing the free exercise of religion, conspiracy, and two counts related to the possession and use of an explosive device. Hari, who is transgender, was tried as Michael Hari, which was her former name.

'I'm Terrified of You': Chelsea Manning Blasts 'Greedy, Unprincipled' Former Friend Glenn Greenwald

Former United States Army intel analyst Chelsea Manning decried Glenn Greenwald and renounced the support he offered when she spoke out as a whistleblower.

On Thursday, Manning took to Twitter to condemn the journalist.

“Glenn Greenwald, I don’t have $10,000 right now but if I get it I want to send it back to you from a donation you once did. I can’t deal with this anymore. Im terrified of you and everything you do. You’re greedy, unprincipled, and Im embarrassed for ever considering you a friend,” she wrote.

“Last night during the floods I decided that im no longer going to be afraid of saying what’s on my mind anymore or taking a stand from the people that i once considered allies but who have chosen to bash, harass, humiliate, intimidate, and lie to get ahead,” she continued. “To those he has hurt Im sorry I didn’t say anything I was scared and that’s my fault.”
