by Ali Harb
On Wednesday June 25, police arrested an Iraqi American who was trying to burn the Qur'an in front of the Karbalaa Islamic Educational Center on Warren Avenue.
Ali Hassan Al-Asaidi, 50, of Detroit, also admitted to burning three Qur'ans at the Karbalaa Center on June 10, according to Lt. Doug Topolski of the Dearborn Police Department.
The first Qur'an burning incident coincided with the visit of an anti-Muslim pastor from Florida and made national headlines.
