A Central Ga. Muslim spiritual leader is calling the death of Osama bin Laden a "big relief" for the Islamic community and for the world.
"I see him as someone who has miscalculated everything, misjudged everything, and seen the world in a very narrow angle," says Imam Adam Fofana.
Fofana is the spiritual leader and a teacher at the Islamic Center of Middle Georgia, which is located in Centerville.
He says the al-Qaida leader's terroristic attacks have hurt many but have done more damage to the Muslim community.
"From within our faith, he has killed a lot of our faith members," says Fofana.
"From outside our faith, he makes the rest of the world look to the Muslims as if they believe in this kind of thing."
The majority do not follow the beliefs of al-Qaida, he says. That's why he hopes the end of bin Laden will mean the beginning of a new understanding of Islam.
