Anybody want to shed some light on this? KFI and Worldnet Daily are talking about a flyer that showed up last week in South LA suggesting that area gangs end their turf wars, join the Nation of Islam and start a Jihad against the LAPD apparently in response to the Tony Muhammad situation. The problem, though, is that the flyer references a currently defunct phone number for the 87th street mosque. The Nation isn't talking but it seems odd that the flyer would reference a dead line if they were truly trying to recruit new members. This just in: The NOI categorically denies issuing the flyer.

So, what's the deal? If the Nation didn't issue the flyer, who did and to what end?
