On July 9, 2005 the Flint Journal reported, "Dr. Abdelmajid Jondy preached a message of peace Friday at the Flint Islamic Center, while condemning the terrorist attacks in London.

'Islam is a peaceful religion,' Jondy said. 'Those who kill innocent people are not Muslim.'

Jondy, president of the center, said he's concerned about terrorists using Islam for political reasons and giving the religion a bad reputation. A group tied to al-Qaida claimed responsibility for the bombings that have killed about 50, although authorities Friday were still gathering evidence.

Jondy said the truth is that Muslims are good citizens who don't commit crimes... The Flint Islamic Center is opening its Friday afternoon services to non-Muslims so residents can learn about the religion."
