Scholar tells Caribbean to focus on crime, not ISIS

Trinidadian Islamic scholar David Muhammad is accusing Caribbean governments of paying too much attention to the so-called Islamic State and too little to the ballooning murder rates.

The Nation of Islam representative for Trinidad and Tobago and the Eastern Caribbean told a gathering at the Crumpton Street headquarters of the Clement Payne Movement that the region’s political leaders were seeking to please the United States by beefing up anti-ISIS legislation while violence among their nationals was wrecking Caribbean communities.
